Go Strum It!

~~ Links to purchase ‘Go Strum It’ is at the bottom of this page ~~

I purchased this artwork last year for my great nephew and to make my niece a wall quilt to hang in her cubicle at work. She is in a position where she trains people who have no experience in this job. So you know she is challenged everyday. Plus both her husband and son are accomplished guitarist. So it all fits!

Her son Will and his wife like the basic colors gray, black, and white as do many young people these days.

This one is for Will!

Kathy and Sandi’s Applique Elegance Quilt – Oh my!

Kathi's & Sandi's Award Winning Applique Elegance Quilt

Kathi's & Sandi's Applique Elegance "Awarding Winning" Quilt
Kathi’s & Sandi’s Applique Elegance Awarding Winning Quilt –
I can see all y’all doing this too.

Thought I’d share this with y’all, while I iron out a few details on my next embroidery design release. If you’ve been collecting designs, from me or anyone else, without a clue what you were going to do with them, then be prepared to be schooled on how to take embroidery beyond the hoop.

Since starting down this road, I’ve encouraged folks to share with their projects, as it encourages me to know that my efforts are helping inspire your creativity. Sometimes, I’m pleasantly surprised and every so often I’m blown away. Kathi’s & Sandi’s quilt project is definitely in the latter category. If you’s like to learn more about their machine embroidered quilt project and it’s amazing journey, then read more here.

Love You More – Addendum to my Celebrate Easter Quilt Banner

Love You More - Celebrate Easter Salutation No. 2

Love You More

My Celebrate Easter quilt banner turned out so beautiful I decided I must sew it again. Only I don’t need another Easter design of the same. After giving it some thought I decided I would add a different message and this time would not make a hanging quilt with it.

It took me a few days and some talking about it with friends but finally I decided to put “Love You More” in the oval space. For my project I decided to make a pillow with it  – layout undetermined at this time.

Love You More

I’ve added this message to the collection Celebrate Easter.

Celebrate Easter Quilt Banner

Quilted with doves, this is my Easter Quilt for the front door. It can equally hang on the wall. I’ve been putting previous door banners on the backside of the door so when the door is closed I get to enjoy looking at them.

I am using 2 of the designs in my quilt. However, I have edited them into more designs so smaller hoops can sew them and to give you a bit more creative leeway.

My plan is to make the floral design without the lettering with a different message or simply one very large W. I simply cannot make just one project with this design.

Add any text inside the oval for a customized project
