Gypsy Rose

I made this quilt as a Christmas gift for Megan, she is Erik’s youngest daughter. I love making quilts for the girls. It thrills me that they all love their quilts.

My goal is that each of the girls will have a queen size quilt to add to their collections. I have a couple planned for this year. I made Megans quilt using Miss Rosies Quilt co pattern Summer Wind and The Gypsy Rose collection by Joanna Figueroa. Katie really likes the pattern so I’ll make her one, I’ve already bought her fabric and hopefully I’ll get a chance to start hers soon. This next picture is of Megan with her lap quilt that I gave her 2 Christmases ago to go with her bedroom that she’d recently decorated. She is changing rooms soon and her Gypsy Rose quilt will look very at home with her new decor.

I have been quilting for Tara from almost the beginning of my machine quilting business. She has been such an encourager and has also provided me with awesome quilts to work on. This batik quilt was a joy to quilt, I used a rainbows thread that really pulled the together into the border. It was quilted with a pantograph called wildflowers.

These kitties belong to my daughter Emily, they are all living with me while Emily attends University. They couldn’t resist this box and at one point the smaller kitten had opened the lid just enough to slide into the box and keep the lid on…..never a dull moment!

    Gorgeous quilts, and models too! I tried to respond to your comment to me and it was “no-reply” on status. I just wanted to say thank you for you visit and kind words! Have a super day!

    Thank you so much and for commenting too. I wish I knew how to change that no-reply status.

    I love all your quilts but especially the Summer Wind quilt. Is it all done with Gypsy Rose fabric or did you add some from other collections?

    I used only Gypsy Rose fabrics for this one, I used 2 layer cakes, 1 jelly roll and a bit of yardage. I had found a really good deal on charming layer cakes.
