Spring Placemats

I have a lot on my mind this week, which is typical during Holy Week.  There's quiet contemplation and building anticipation and excitement for Sunday.  This is our second year of being in ministry, so it feels like there's extra business, AND my lovely customers are keeping me busy with projects...thank you!

With all of that said, it's projects like this one that help me bring things together.  See, there's more that goes on beyond the pretty fabric and stitching...sewing is my quiet time.  I often listen to my Bible or other books.  Sometimes I listen to music and worship, and other times, I just sit and just listen to the whir of my machine and listen for that still small voice.  I find my center and my happy place while I sew.

This isn't a super-complicated queen-sized quilt, but they gorgeous placemats were exactly what I needed this week.

These are for the customer who purchase this table runner and requested matching placemats.

The fabric is called A Beautiful Thing by Zoe Pearn for Riley Blake.  I used White Kona to border and Charcoal Kona to bind.

These were so fun to quilt.  I free motioned simple loops, then bounced around each loop to make it flowery.  I'm pleased with how they turned out.

If the name "Quilting Is My Therapy" wasn't taken...I might have snatched it up, because really, I'm not sure how I'd cope without it.  I'm so, so, so thankful that I am able to do this and help support my family.  

Thank YOU for stopping by and supporting me...I truly appreciate it! <3

Have an awesome day!

Turtle Fun - A Finished Quilt!

Hello!  I'm here to today with a bright, fun new finish.

This was such a fun project.  Sometimes it's just so satisfying to just do squares and meandering, isn't it?

I was thrilled to find this "grassy" green fabric for the fit so well!

Here's the artsy, rolled up quilt picture:

(I often like to make fun while I'm taking

The boldness of colors and the fun turtles really make me smile. :)

The best's already being loved.  <3 <3 <3

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Have an awesome day!
