Beth's Beauties

 I've just finished these three beauties for Beth - all three are super cuteness and were perfect for E2E!

First is Country Christmas (pattern by Corey Yoder).
On this very festival quilt Beth chose on of my digital designs: FFfeathers_curl18_clamshell_km (available for purchase in ALL formats here among many others)  I think the design was perfect!

I have to admit on this beautiful quilt I made a big mistake... yep like a rookie mistake -- but it goes to show you it can happen!  I ripped the quilt!!  Can you believe it?  I was so angry with myself - it absolutely drives me nuts when things go wrong... but, I do share how I fixed it in my Quilty Know-How FB Group I have step-by-step detailed photos - this group is an affordable yearly subscription ($5/month) so check out the link and see if it is something that might interest you!  There is so much info in the group I'm sure there's something there for you.

Next was a baby quilt Beth made using a layer cake - again super cute!  She chose foxye2e by Stitch Happy/TJ Spieser (another cute pattern I've used several times) - again perfect for this baby gift.

And the last one is Bumble Bee Blossoms (pattern by Krista Moser) - OMG I think I need to make this quilt - such bright colors and all that crisp white background!  Beth chose a fun bee pattern called Gardenbees_2_E2E by Maureen Foster and again it was a perfect compliment to the quilt top!

Kris - Crumbs quilt

 I've just finished this super cute quilt for Kris.  The pattern is Crumbs by Me and My Sister Designs.  First I'll show you the finished beauty then I'll tell you all about it!

I used one of my digital designs called Swoof -- available in ALL formats here and also in gqp format here.

Now on to the story... according to Kris this quilt was almost destined for the garbage... almost.  She is one of my awesome regular clients so she contacted me and asked if it was fixable.  It most certainly was - there was just a wee bit of wonky in the borders -- totally fixable!

The top border was 59" and the bottom border was 57 3/8" while both sides were 74 5/8.  All I needed to do was shrink up that top border.  I share a 20 minute video in my Quilty Know-How group (paid subscription) on how to fix it.

So don't even think your quilt is so wonky it can never be quilted.  I have fixed many almost trash can quilts into beautiful pieces!!
