More Sneak Peeks for Fall Market

I've been quilting up a storm this week every since I got back from Heroes Con to meet my deadline to ship quilts to Island Batik. I still can't share the full projects I've designed, but I have shot a few sneak peeks for you to enjoy!

I decided to design a variety of quilt sizes - one wall hanging, one large throw, one queen sized quilt, and one small throw that could also be a baby quilt. This new set of patterns will become available in November this year.

Of course I love adding as much texture as I can with the quilting design! When I shared this photo on Facebook, a quilter instantly commented that she knew it was mine without reading the description.

It's funny how subtle things combine together to become your signature style after awhile. For me it's lots of filler designs stitched in contrasting thread with relatively small stitches. This is just the way I love to quilt!

Do you have a particular style of quilting? The best way to develop your own style is to quilt lots of quilts, look at lots of quilts, and always be asking yourself what you love to see and stitch. The more you do what you love, the better your quilting will reflect you.

Now I'm off to finish quilting two more quilts so I can get all of these beauties bound and shipped off by the end of the month. It's been a lot of fun to have this deadline and Josh is already planning deadlines for our own projects coming out later this summer. New workshops, books, and embroidery designs are already in the works!

Let's go quilt,

  1. Leah, I too find myself a quilter that does a lot of filler and a lot of small detail quilting. Every time I try to make the quilting larger in scale I have trouble keeping my stitches the same length because I'm not used to quilting that large. It's something I've noticed as I started my blog
