Mary C's "Desert Sky"

This quilt belongs to Mary C.  I finished it last week and I think she was tickled with how it turned out. It was so much fun to quilt.  Lots and lots of feathers.  Thanks for taking a peek.  Lynnie

A few of what I have been working on..

Wow, I have been busy and not keeping up with my blog.  Well I found where the hubby had them stored on the computer so hopefully I will be better in the future.  This first quilt is a baby quilt done by Joann--Isnt it sweet?

This is Darlines Delectable Mountains that she made for her son.  Out of her comfort zone but she did awesome.  The nest picture shows the quilting on the quilt...  Darline--you did GOOOD!

 The next 3 are Sue's.  I love the Alaska girls, I have the pattern and it is now calling my name to do one too!
 Sue's done with Freddi Moran!!
 Sue's redwork...

Now this is gonna get confusing but this is a different Sue's quilt.  A 2 color quilt that turned out awesome!!
 Ethel's quilt made for a friend that is gonna have knee surgery.  Its gonna be a snuggle quilt for sure, she has purple minkie backing.  I showed a picture of the back just to see what the quilting looked like.

Well thats about it, unless I find one that I missed.  Hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine and their week ends...
Thanks for taking a peek!!

Cleo's Quilt

I finished this beauty this morning.  Did a leaf motif in the green and then swirly's in the floral.  It really turned out pretty.  Cleo loved it, she said "Its your best yet".

I have been really bad about posting but there is a reason.... Hubby has been posting all customer quilts on our website,  under quilting inspirations.  And he is so much more organized than I am I can never find the photos, but if hes doing the posting Im not complaining.  So if you wanna see what else I've been up to scoot on over to the website and check some of them out..
Thanks for taking a peek.

Sue and Lynn's quilts

Just finished both of these this weekend.  Sue's is the first quilt.  A sampler that turned out very pretty.  The pictures dont do this quilt justice.  This quilt was a bit of a challenge but I think we got it.  There was some fullness in the quilt and in the borders.  I chose an all over for the center then I did a segregated design in the border.  I managed to get most of the fullness quilted down..  Im happy with the way it turned out..  Thank you Sue!!

 I had never worked on Twall (sp) before so this was a new experience for me.  Lynn wanted a simple all over that didnt detract from the pattern.  I chose a Floopy Flower and Im tickled with the way it turned out...  I love the solid back that shows the design, basically she now has a reversible quilt.
Thank you Lynn.

Kathy's BQ3

I have been horrible about adding finished quilt pictures.  This one is Kathy's, she made it for friends.  She told me to do what ever I wanted to do, so feathers are my fancy as of late so I did lots of feathers.  Not much shows up on the front but the back tells a whole different story...  We are gonna be together when she delivers this to the happy couple...  Thanks for letting me work on this Kathy!!  It turned out great..

Thanks for taking a peek.

Vicki's quilt

Good morning,
Cant believe that its been almost a month since I have posted anything.  Shame on me!!!  I just finished Vicki's barn quilt.  It is such a sweet little quilt.  She has the pattern at her shop--Back Porch Quilts n Fabrics.    This quilt measured up at 62 x 72.  Perfect lap size or even a great wall hanging.  Thanks for taking a peek.  
P.S.  I have some pictures of Kathys quilt but am having a heck of a time trying to get them off my phone, havent given up yet so be sure to check back and see Kathy's BQ3.

I just realized that I havent posted Emma.  Emma was one of the quilt tops that my mom had hand appliqued and I found after she passed.  I love the way that it turned out.  It is listed on my website for sale, you can see more pictures of her there--   Also on the website (my darling hubby has been working so hard on it) is an inspiration page.  Lots of eye candy to look at.  It has quilts from when I first started longarming up to now--  Thanks for taking a peek...

I finished "Daphne" today.  This is what was left of some of the blocks I had found after mom passed.  There was enough Pansy blocks to make 2 large quilts.  There was also enough of the 3 flower blocks to make 2 quilts.  With each having 4 leftover blocks this is what dh and I came up with.  Made a 48 x 48 lap/baby quilt.  It is alread listed on my website,  Thanks for taking a peek.  Lynnie

Interactive Bed Quilt Sizing Calculator

Good Morning!!
My hubby has been busy working on our website, we are offering a lot of different things but this is his latest and I think one of his greatest.  For those of us that do commissioned quilts - this is a "have-to-have".  Check it out, play with it and if you can let us know what you think...
Thanks for taking a peek...

What size quilt is required for a particular bed?   SIMPLE QUESTION, NOT A SIMPLE ANSWER.
Making a custom quilt starts with size. Size also has the greatest impact on quilt cost.
Who would have thunk? Sizing a quilt requires 7 specific dimensional values with 12 possible combinations.  That's 84 chances to make a mistake and mis-size the quilt.

• We have developed an automatic program that calculates the finished quilt length and width.

•The Calculator is live and interactive. Just put in the numbers and it will tell you the finished size needed.

•There are also reference charts for standard bed sizes and pillow sizes to assist.

•Additional drawing references to show what each of the dimensions refer to as applied to a bed as we've used the terms are included..

Link to my website     Select "Bed Quilt Sizing" on the navigation pane.

Here is a picture of the free calculator you have access to at Just enter the specific bed information and select the design parameters (true or false). Out pops the final quilt size. Our gift to start off the new year. It works well for us and we hope you find it as useful.

There are numerous variables to properly sizing a bed quilt.

Starting with 3 basic dimensions: 1) mattress length, 2) mattress width and 3) mattress height. We've included useful charts for standard mattress width and length dimensions but height is just something that has to be measured. Mattress height "generally" defines quilt "overhang". As such the minimal amount of overhang added for width to the quilt becomes 2 times the mattress height added to the mattress width. 4) Additional Overhang. Do we want additional overhang to overlap a bedskirt? Do we want it to hang all the way to the floor? The amount of overhang has to be absolutely established by the customer and measurements physically made to be sure. 5) Footboard. Quilt length is adjusted if the bed does not have a footboard. Without a footboard, the same "overhang" variables apply to the length (but the overhang is not doubled when calculating quilt length). 6) Pillow tuck. Is the quilt going to cover the pillows? Pillow tuck (the amount under the pillow) and the length added due to the height of the pillow — now get involved in the calculation. 7) Shrinkage. Should probably be more specific that this is laundry shrinkage as there is size shrinkage also involved in the quilting process. If the quilt is only going to be dry-cleaned, than laundry shrinkage is not a factor. If it is going to be laundered than shrinkage is an important sizing variable.
