quilt monday

Happy New Year!

 Remember me? Hi!! 

That turned into a bit of a longer break than I planned to take but I'm back and let's catch up!

This quilt.

 It's the first quilt I have made from fabric from my own store. 

Makes it more special to me :) 

I cut this quilt out on a Wednesday night. Pieced it on a Thursday, quilted it on the Friday and finished the binding the Saturday morning before the baby shower.

I went with a very traditional quilt pattern this time.

 I think it turned out super cute.

I love the simplicity.

I've finally ran out of all the bolts of flannel I had for baby quilts so I used a lovely cream plaid for the backing.

I had some leftover blocks and enough flannel so I sewed up a little runner.

I went with a simple meander for the quilting. 
And I had just enough matching flannel for the backing.

And now it sits on display in the store :)

Happy Monday!

 You had to know I wouldn't have let this sit long without getting quilted.

Like the other one I did, I went with a simple meander. 

Had enough of my favourite Ruby Star print for the stars.

I'll probably end up regretting using this old bunch of muslin for the backing.
But it was the perfect amount and I didn't want to have to wait to get some widebacking.

Funny story about the polka dot binding. I was opening a fabric order and may have caught this bolt with my exacto knife. Oops. 

It is perfect though.

I love how it greets you when you come inside the shop.

Happy Monday!

the shop

 I mentioned last week that I opened a quilt store, here's the details!

We built the store in our backyard.

We moved my quilt machine inside, yes I'll still be longarming!

2 quilts my great grandma made, the bottom one my grandma made for me in the 80s.

Some of the fabric shelves.

Have you heard about the BC flooding? 
The rest of my fabrics are stuck on the other side of the flood :(

I love the back wall. 
And the perfect spot for my machine.

The store is open Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 10-3, by appointment.
