Twin Pretties

I was talking to my friend Sharon and mentioned that I was practicing my long arm quilting.  She asked if I would do some baby quilts she had made for twins.

So this is my first commissioned quilting job, yeah!

Last month I gave my hair stylist a quilt that I had been working on with her in mind.  The back was tula pink Parisville with the crazy hair styles, see previous May post.  She loved it.  I scanned her thank you card which was like quilter crack.  Had to share it.

Working on a baby boy quilt now for my cousin Julie, have a Septemberish timeline on it.  here is a preview....
I am hand quilting this one and am about 1/4 finished.  Better get crankin ;]

Hope you get to sew this weekend!


  1. What a sweet note Nicole! And you are right, quilter crack for sure. I have 2 whole days now to do nothing but sew ( well I think I need a trip to Joannes for some storage boxes) and I am on a mission to assemble 2 tops since the blocks been done for months!
    Love the baby quilt, colors are terrific, hope to see you in Long Beach!

  2. Wow, you have been productive. I guess Colleen loved the quilt as much as you hoped she would. It's nice when someone realizes the thought and effort expended to make such a special gift.
    Couldn't wait to see your new post, didn't e-surf much on vacation. My brain is clear, and itching to get to my sewing room.


I would love to hear from you
