I am making progress on my Monaluna Taali quilt - it is going to be so cute!! My daughter has already put her name on it - she said, "I am getting that quilt to take away to college with me!" It is nice to send something that we have made with our kids when they go away, although both my sons left their quilts home here. Boys are different, I think. Not so sentimental. But I know they both love their quilts.

I think after I finish my Taali quilt, I am going to start one with Kate Spain's Terrain, because I need a lavender-ish quilt for the guest room. I am thinking about this pattern:

Two More Quilts Done!!









Just got two quilts back from my quilting teacher, Emilie Mannion, who quilted them on her mid-arm!! I like to call it "free range" quilting, instead of free motion quilting - it gives it a more adventurous feel!! I think the quilting on them is wonderful!! One is batiks and the grey one is all Lotta Jansdotter fabrics using the patterns from www.freshlemonsquilts.com. What do you think??

Monaluna's Taali by Jennifer Moore

Jennifer Moore of Monaluna generously donated a fat quarter collection of her fun and whimsical Taali line. I am putting blocks together, and they are wonderful!! 100% organic cotton, they don't have that thin feel that many organic fabrics have. They feel smooth and substantial, and the designs and colors just make me smile!! Here are two of the blocks I have created, and I have all of the others cut out and ready to go. I am going to work on it some more tonight and tomorrow. Thank you, Jennifer!!! I adore your fabric!!!

Lotta Jansdotter Quilt almost done!!!

I have finished piecing the Lotta Jansdotter Echo fabric quilt!! Yippee!!! I am thrilled by it!! I am sending it to my friend, Emilie Mannion, to quilt it, as it is about a Queen size, and I don't want to wrestle with that on my Janome. Emilie has a mid-arm and does a wonderful job quilting!

Here she is, in her unquilted glory!! I used the pattern from here:
