Today’s Featured Item – Lush Cozy Cactus Quilt

IMG_2258Hey howdy hey!  Look who’s back!   Today I will share with you a fresh and brand new quilt that I JUST finished sewing this morning.  Actually, I finished it yesterday, but I just finished sewing on the little flowers today.  I have to give the credit for that sweet little embellishment, IMG_2261which in my opinion just MAKES this quilt, to Josh!  He mentioned it in passing when I was designing this quilt a few days ago and trying to find a good match for the cactus top.  I wanted to pair it with this rich sunshine golden-colored cotton for the backing, and it just wasn’t working.  He said that it would have worked great if I had drawn some little flowers on the cactus tips, which gave me the idea of adding them as embellishments to the quilt itself.  That got me to thinking about a IMG_2264whole range of fabrics that I could design that would be intended for little embellishments like that.  That is still a very new idea I am hatching, but an exciting one!  So here she is, the Lush Cozy Cactus and Red Desert Bird quilt.  I am the WORST when it comes to getting creative with names and such.  Unless it’s totally random, like this quilt *would* be named The Darla if I were so inclined to give it a name just for the sake of it.  Have a GREAT Friday and a wonderful weekend to all from me and Darla!! 🙂 IMG_2270

Today’s Featured Item: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Quilt

il_570xN.602463201_byuyToday’s featured item is a fun and different way to expose your little ones to music.  Featuring notes from only the treble clef of the song, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, the notes are all correctly rendered and positioned to reflect the tune.  It is a whole cloth quilt, meaning that the top of the quilt is not pieced, but consists of one entire cut of fabric.  The back is straight black, and it has black binding as well.  I wanted the quilt to reflect the simplicity of sheet music, so I chose to only use the white and black colors on this one, although I did an Amazing Grace quilt and added colorful binding, which I preferred once I saw it as a finished project. It is 100% GOTS organic cotton, with organic cotton and bamboo batting inside.  I really enjoyed making this quilt, and can see it going in so many cool directions…For example, with someone who writes their own music and wanted to give a personalized quilt as a gift…So funky and unique!!  To see the Etsy listing, click here.
