Strawberry Jam quilt

Here we are again, using Sabrina as a model.  She's even wearing a strawberry dress to match the quilt! 

This pattern is called Strawberry Jam and is by a Crafty Fox. I love all the scrappiness of it, and I hand selected the fussy cut fabric which is always so much fun!  I decided not to use 2 1/2" squares for the strawberries, because some of them had such cute prints, I didn't want to cut them up.

Sabrina, you're such a sweet girl! I think you really like being my model :)


Here is a link to my post when I was putting this quilt together.

Then there's yours truly, showing you how I assembled the back ­čŹô

This quilt was so much fun to put together!

Thanks for following and I'll see you back here next week!

lucky cuff quilt

 I belong to the Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild and every year they have a block of the month quilt.  I don't participate in all of them, but this one will be my third. "Lucky Cuff" was designed by Doris Blaisdell for the Modern Quilt Guild, January 2020.

We made Lucky Cuff in the year 2023, and each month we had a section to make.  It's always fun seeing everyone else's blocks, and the colors that they use.

Here is a link to some of our guild's quilts.

I wasn't that crazy about my quilt, but when my friend Pam at Sweet Pz Designs in Gilbert, Arizona quilted it, I fell in love with it! She used the "arches" pantograph. 

With the help of my cute little grand daughter Sarina and her parents, we took some really fun photos!

This photo shows off the machine quilting.

I used my Lori Holt fabric, but had to buy fabric for the background.

I used half yard pieces of Lori Holt for the backing.  I think it gives a really pretty look :)

Thanks Sabrina, that's a wrap! See you next week :)

Collector's Edition Quilt

I was collecting really cute Cotton and Steel fabric and Ruby Star Society fabric for about 10 years, just waiting for the perfect project Whenever I found a piece that I couldn't live without,  I would add it to my collection. One day as I was looking on the internet, I found this pattern.  A great way to display my favorite fabrics!

You can see my post here when I was choosing the prints.

Here's my finished quilt!

I pieced some pink Rudy Star fabric on the back.

Can you see the daisy quilting motif that my long armer used?  I love it so much!  Her name is Marti and you can find her at Lynny Lou's Crafts in Gilbert, Arizona.

I found the best spot to photograph and show off my quilts!

This quilt was so much fun to make.  I made it during a quilt along.

Now I can use the fabric I was collecting in other quilts because I know it has been beautifully shown in this quilt.

Thanks for following me, I'll see you next week :)
