Happy Mother's Day!

Hope all of you mothers are being spoiled today!  ����

Speaking of mothers, I guess it is quilt season for me with all these baby quilts!
But it is a good kind of busy since I love to make them!
They allow me to design a little more with the fabrics
and I love the bright primary colors for the little ones.
Here is my design layout for this new quilt
Stay tuned for the progress!!

Taking Orders

The Valle quilt is finished and waiting to be shipped to go home.  :)
It is a big quilt at 72" x 96".
I had to hang it down from the 2nd floor balcony.

If you followed the making here
you would know that it started out with the mid section first.
(taken without flash)

The top 2 shirts in light blue backing were from her elementary school.
The one shirt with the yellow backing is from her middle school
and the shirts with the grey backing are from her highschool.
The 6 shirts in the mid section are from her college.
The lone shirt on the bottom is post college.
The four extra shirts flanking the bottom sides were added after 
to complete her college experience. 

It was hard to capture the quilting from far..

But here it is up close with some light justification to see the design more clearly.

With this completed, I am now again taking orders.  
Click here and it will take you to my Etsy
where it will tell you about my policies and fees.
These make wonderful gifts for a lifetime.
For all of you athletes with all of your competition shirts,
these are a great way to preserve them and show them off too!
For all of you moms, all of your little one's sports tees would make
an awesome quilt souvenir that can be displayed!

Hit me up either through my Etsy here...
or email me at eckdesign2@(at)gmail.com

I'd love to make your memory quilt!  :)
 Hope to hear from you soon!

BH Quilt Inspiration



With just ONE graduation stole left to do...
WHEW!
and a custom tshirt quilt waiting to ship,
I can now start the designs on a very custom
scrap and tshirt quilt combo for a dear friend.
Here's my inspiration.

I'm kinda excited about working with alot of colors!  :)
I sure am going to have alot of cutting and piecing to do...
but I'll certainly be cutting down on my stash...
and the straight stitching will be quite therapeutic.  
Stay tuned for the process!

Lavender and Magnets

The plants are GROWING like crazy!!
More pics to come soon as I try to de-jungle the mess.  UGH!
But the lavender is oh so sweet and I can't help but want to touch the leaves.
Unfortunately, I may have harmed the bird's nest that 
I didnt realize was hidden under the bush. =o(

I  was able to get a small bunch of sweet smells to have on the table though!

On a another note, 
I stopped by a few yard sales on the way from the grocery on Saturday morning
and I was able to find a couple of very used tin oven pans.

I have been meaning to find a couple of them to house my gi-normous
magnet collection that I have acquired from my travels over the years.

A small handful of them are gifts from friends 
but on the whole, I chose most of them from places that I have visited.

This is only about a tenth of the collection...
So I am looking for more pans!
But T and I had a wonderful time going through them last night
and placing them in their new resting place.  
What about you...  do you have anything that you collect?
Comment and share! :)

Sir Maverick

Finishing the weekend with scarlet, silver and black
This is the first Omega Delta Phi stole I made.


The black satin on this one is pretty!
Nice to work with different sets of colors.
 
I sure am going to miss this frequent visitor in my office....
such a bittersweet time...
Congratulations to you, Sir Maverick!
