Thank you to everyone who participated in the kit naming contest! There were lots of good ideas, but the prize goes to Kelli Chapman-Ruthruff, who guessed close to the one I was already thinking of, "Serenity". Congratulations, you will get a kit when they are ready, which will hopefully be in a few weeks! And here is a newer sample. Very similar, but a few small changes from the original quilt, which I no longer have.
There is some thread painting on it, which I hope you will try, but I will have a couple of options for variations as well! I will also plan to have some videos showing how to stitch the irises and the cool pebble quilting as well.
And thanks to everyone who has given me recommendations for quilt shops, keep them coming! See the home page for info on how you can earn a free kit of your choice by helping me find new shops.
I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of them have even been in Keepsake Quilting! I teach classes at local quilt shops, and would love to do more traveling and teaching eventually. I also have many tutorials, including some on you tube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
