Lots of sewing this week…but since much of it is for market I’ll be primarily sharing little bits of the fabrics I’m working with. Fall decorating is still one of my works in progress, too. Over the weekend I was able to pull out some of my “fall-flavored” Fig Tree quilts and display them on a quilt ladder in my front entry. I smile every time I walk by, and I can hardly wait to fill this ladder with Christmas quilts in a few months!
I’m working on two quilts for Joanna Figueroa using her new Aloha Girl collection which will ship in the spring. It’s a little reminiscent of California Girl, but I love this collection more. It’s got some gorgeous prints that I already can’t live without (saving every scrap), and has a fun retro vibe.
I also just finished a quilt for Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet…her quilt is ready to be shipped to her…as soon as I can share, I will.
It was a lot of fun to sew with her Flower Patch collection which is just in shops now. This collection has more of a fall feel to it, which is perfect for sewing now, and it also has a bit of a vintage vibe. I’m going to have to pick the perfect project for the fabric Lori sent along for me to sew something for myself!
Okay…it’s back to the sewing room for me…thanks so much for stopping by!
I love your fall quilts and what a great way to display them….I would smile too!
Can't wait to see what you made with Lori's fabric! Her Flower Patch fabric is going on my to buy list!

I love the idea of the ladder with seasonal quilts. It makes such a nice "welcome" for you and your guests.
Very welcoming! Love that idea of the ladder to display quilts. Can't wait to see what you are sewing for Joanna and Lori. Love both designers. Happy Sewing!
I wish someone would ask me to make them a quilt! That's awesome!
Fabulous fallish FigTree quilts and fabrics and Lori Holt! Lucky you:-)

I made the dresdan plate quilt with the fig tree material and designer. It was a lot of fun. Love your quilts, and forgot to come and see you when my brother passed away down there.

I really like that quilting pattern. I think that quilting is such a great thing, even though I have no experience in it at all. It reminds me of when I would play with my brothers while my mother quilted at the kitchen table. http://www.quiltypleasures.ca
Your quilts look beautiful on the ladder, I have a ladder in my lounge my husband made me and right now it has all my Spring quilts on it. Summer will be here soon, I can't wait.
I LOVE your ladder idea! I have the perfect wall to hang a ladder from… I might just do the same! I really need to start decorating for fall too 🙂
You quilt ladder looks great Sherri!
Oh, I saw your book in my LQS yesterday 🙂
