I have been busy with customer quilts at the moment but I am pleased to say that I have finished another quilt I designed, I am having fun with colours and shapes at the moment and have been writing all my ideas down in a book for when I do get time to make them. This is the new one haven't got a name at the moment although John calls it the "Hippie quilt", any ideas?
I am also making a bag to go with it, so I will show you that one as soon as it is done.
I also thought I would show you my Blue Heaven quilt that I have finally finished. It is from Megan Fisher in Homespun Magazine, as soon as I sow this quilt I had to make it and I love the way it has come out. It is for my sister in-law and I hope she likes it....

It sat on my desk for along time waiting to be quilted but I am happy with the way it looks, I enjoy doing this type of quilting . I hope you all have a great week and happy sewing.
Big Hugs Bec

  4. The blue heaven quilt is extraordinary, Bec! I absolutely love it, and know your SIL will, too! The quilting is breathtaking, and so perfect!

    And I love the other quilt, too, with its whimsical personality. I think I would name it "Flower Child" or "Hip To Be Square"!

  5. Will all I can say is "Wow". They both are just beautiful! And I love the name Hippie Quilt! Maybe because I grew up in the 60's but I think it looks alot like the name!

  6. Bec I love the hippie quilt ... just 'groovy' LOL. Love the Blue Heaven quilt too, your quilting is just divine!!
    Joy :o)

  7. I love your Hippy Quilt - so fresh! Blue Heaven, the same - nice to see in the long, hot summer!

  8. Stunning quilting! Seriously *Gasp* worthy. It's a really nice pattern too. The Hippie quilt is terrific and has Moda Bakeshop written all over it. Let me know when that book comes out - I'm interested. Ann :-)

  9. Wow Rebecca, your quilting looks fantastic. Well done. Kim

  10. I like your Hippy Quilt very much. Also the name. The Blue Heaven is fantastic. I am very sad that I am not your sister in law.

  11. your quilts look great........if you sister in law doesn't like the blue and white one send it to me........the quilting looks great on it also......

  12. Wow what a very lucky sister in law , that is a lovely quilt and I love the hippy one too !

  13. HI Bec!
    I was going to suggest you call the first quilt
    "Don't be Square", but I like the earlier suggestion of "Hip to be Square".

    The quilting on Blue Heaven is breathtaking! I LOVE your feathers and trapunto on the border!
