Welcome to my little blog! Here I am in my sewing room, I hope you'll stay a while and see what there is to see.

Brylon's Marine Quilt

Brylon's Marine Quilt

Brylon's Marine quilt came about based on the colors of the Marine's flag. He just got back from a stint in Kuwait and is now needing some bedding for his barracks. I love special requests like this! He told me to just do whatever I thought would look good, but just use the colors of the flag.

I used my EQ7 software to mock up a couple of designs to let him pick from.  This is the first of two stars.

And here is the second. I loved making these because stars are my favorite! I quilted it simply and just tried to let the pattern itself stand out.

I've had a few questions about my labels, they are from customlabels4u that I found via Instagram. I LOVE them, and the company is great to work with!

Now, as soon as I get an address, this one will be off to live in California for a while!
