King-Sized Phoebe's Flower Box Quilt Set +++ Craftsy and AccuQuilt Sales!



Phoebe can finally be revealed here after delivering her to my sister last week!  I finished Phoebe last month, but I wanted my sister to see the finished quilt in person, not in pictures on the blog.
This quilt is shown on a queen-sized bed.  When I showed it to my sister last week, there was a king-sized bed available to lay it on, and it fit generously with a large overhang - just what we were after! 
If you would like a custom quilt in most any pattern and fabric, please contact me!  I received three new custom orders yesterday, but January's schedule is not yet full.
There are two king-sized pillow shams, quilted on the front with envelope openings on the back.  I don't have king-sized pillows to put in the shams, unfortunately.
The backing is the gorgeous navy blue flower burst from the Phoebe collection. 
Quilt Stats:
  • Pattern:  Phoebe's Flower Box, found in an issue of Quilting Quickly magazine that is no longer available.  The video can be found on Missouri Quilt Co's YouTube channel.  I modified the block size from 6" to 8" to make the project go a little faster.
  • Size:  110" x 110"  She's huge!
  • Fabric:  100% Phoebe by Another Point of View for Windham Fabrics
  • Batting:  Cotton
  • Quilting:  Allover medium meandering stitch in gray thread on Mrs.Singer, my 31-15 with a patent date of 1896.
  • Value:  Stunning for my sweet sister!

Happy Ooh La La Baby Security Blanket



Another WIP from the closet found the light today!  The stack of Ooh La La fabrics is whittling down with enough for one more baby quilt.
This is a smaller baby quilt than I usually make.  The idea came from a custom order request for a smaller quilt that is easier to drag around. 
Happy dizzy-making backing!
Quilt Stats:
  • Pattern:  Simple blocks
  • Size:  30" square
  • Fabric:  Ooh La La by Pillow & Maxfield for Michael Miller, quilt top, backing and binding.
  • Quilting:  Allover small-to-medium meandering stitch in white thread.
  • Binding:  Double fold, attached by machine.
  • Batting:  Cotton
  • Value:  Drag-me-along cuteness!
