Daysail Quilts for Cotton Way: Quilt Market 2014


Quilt Market has begun and the social media buzz is strong! I always feel at least a tinge of jealousy when I am not there to enjoy it.  As I have watched other quilters post things they have done for market this year I feel admiration for them! I love watching others succeed.

Then I remembered, I have stuff at Quilt Market too! Yay! I was over the moon when I received an email from Bonnie of Cotton Way last summer asking me to  quilt a couple of her Daysail Quilts! I was able to quilt her Smooth Sailing quilt and her Surfs Up quilt. While I was first a little star struck, working with Bonnie was easy and fun. She was as kind and easy to talk to as all of my clients are. 

Thanks again Bonnie!

Scroll away friends, and enjoy the photos posted below!

Flutterby Butterfly Quilt


I just finished this adorable quilt for Kristin and she already has a pattern available and better yet she is giving one away on her Facebook page!


The dimensional butterfly is what makes this quilt unique! It also screams Cute Quilt Patterns!


Kristin often requests flowers quilted on her quilts, so I was sure to add one in the alternate block!


This photo gives you a great view of those fluttery butterfly wings!


I may have mentioned before, but Kristin has a fun book out! I was able to do the quilting for her, which was super exciting for me!

Customer Quilts September 2014

I am trying something new in an effort to post more regularly on this little blog of mine. From here on out I vow to post at least once a month to give a sampling of the customer quilts that I have worked on the previous month.  September was an especially nice quilting month for me. These photos will be my proof!
 Love, love, love this gray and yellow Jelly Filled quilt! Another classic design by Camille at Thimbleblossoms. It quilted up better than I even imagined!
 My favorite part of this quilt are the figure eights in the solid triangles!
 Christmas! Yay! I loved the trees in the border of this panel quilt.
 This is a shop sample for Gracie Lou's. The quilt pattern is Marmalade Sky by Abbey Lane Quilts. It will be getting a large 3-D flower in the center!
I was lucky enough to be given another Rain Check quilt. Another Thimbleblossoms favorite. I have loads of photos of a previous one I quilted here.
Kristin Roylance of Cute Quilt Patterns sends me awesome stuff to quilt all of the time. These strawberries are so cute! I  may have mentioned before, but I'll tell you again about Kristin's fabulous book Cute Quilts for Kids. It is fill of quilts for kids with 3-D embellishments. Check it out!
The next three are table runners or bench pillows. I love quilting these because they are so fast!
I think these three are all Kimberbell designs.

Cute throw size quilt. I didn't get the pattern or fabric of this one.
Ghastlies meets Thimbleblossoms!

It was really cool to get this Hannah's Flower Garden quilt! I designed this quilt a few years back for my niece. I also made one for my daughter. My sister then marketed this pattern with her pattern company for a while. If you are interested in the pattern, send me an email.

Kristin Roylance Does It Again.

Kristin Roylance is one of my favorite people to quilt for! Her quilts are always unique and adorable. She is also a master at piecing!!! Her quilts are sewn together perfectly every time. I owe her a million thanks for letting me quilt for her and using my quilting on the quilts in her book, "Cute Quilts for Kids." Check it out, it is a must have quilt book!


If you follow me on Instagram, then you have seen these photos before. If not check out my feed @mollylovelythreads.  This first quilt has dimensional petals as well as leaves. And did I mention ric arc?


These fish come to life with the dimensional fins. They might just swim off this quilt!


Lastly is my current favorite of Kristin's is this dimensional owl. The feathers are.so.cute! Plus I think the quilting turned out really fabulous on this one!

Town Square Quilt {Machine Quilting}


I am still dreaming about this quilt that I quilted for Lynda a couple of weeks ago. The pattern is called Town Square from Lori Holt's book, Quilty Fun. I think I need this book. 

 Here is a close up of the border. Here is how I quilted it from top to bottom. Outer border - scroll; star border - swirl vine; small border - inward loops; house border background - close loops; houses - stitch in ditch; trees - three leaves with squiggle up the trunk; inner most border - scroll.
 The colors in this quilt were delightful to look at! Lots of scrappy prints. On the inside patchwork, I kept the quilting simple with and orange peel design.
 See that cute log cabin block in the corner?
This is definitely one of my favorite quilts that I have quilted. Maybe Lynda will gift it to me when she is sick of it? ;)

Rain Check Quilt {Machine Quilting}

 It is raining hard outside. Really hard. If it stops, I might make it to the grocery store. In the meantime I have this Rain Check quilt on my mind. I quilted it for Ashley last week. I am always thrilled when my customers bring me a Thimbleblossoms quilt. I love Camille's style and enjoy every minute of adding the final quilting touch to her quilt designs.
 I decided to brush the dust off this blog to show off all of the background quilting designs I did in this quilt. I used almost every back ground design that I could think of.
 Starting from the white background, and working clockwise, i used the following designs: horizontal puddle lines, crackle, daisies, and straight vertical lines.
 Starting at the blue block and working clockwise: ribbon stipple, scallops (clamshells), vertical lines with curved ends, tight loops.
 Starting at the upper left: horizontal scroll, vines, peacock feathers, and horizontal stripe.
 Starting at the upper left and working clockwise: Greek Key, chevron, spirals, and honestly, I can't see what is on that last one. ;0)
 Starting at the yellow block, and working clockwise ending in the center: ribbon stipple, crackle, spiral, vertical wavy line, echo stipple, random wavy horizontal line, spiral, wavy horizontal line, and tight circle loops.
 We are going to work top to bottom, left to right on this one. Let's skip the navy block though. I don't remember what I did in that one. The next one has vertical lines with curved ends, peacock feathers. Row 2: basket weave, horizontal lines and scrolls, loops. Row 3: large pebbles, feathery spirals, horizontal lines with curved ends.
 Top row: horizontal lines with curved ends, spiral, diagonal wavy lines. Row 2: I don't know what is on the flowered block, clouds, spirals and pebbles. Row 3; diagonal wavy line, waves and spirals, and stipple.

And last, my favorite shot of the q hilt. I love the scallops on that yellow block. And the chevron back there on the light blue block. Which is your favorite?
