Welcome to a regular feature here on the blog called “Made by You!” We have free patterns listed on the right sidebar of the blog, we have a book Country Girl Modern, we have patterns in our online shop and we have patterns often featured in magazines. We have so many of you taking those patterns and making them in your own way and your own style. The blog series features YOUR quilts made with our designs. We love the series as there is no higher compliment to a designer than to know you like our design well enough to spend your time and money to make it.
I recently got an email from Amy. She writes:
I wanted to send along a picture of my Moment of Zen quilt. When I saw your quilt in the magazine I just knew I had to make it for a friend’s wedding gift. I had been looking at the Cider fabric for a while and just knew I had to use that too. You and Kelli did a great job on this pattern. I used 42 fat quarters to make mine a 6×7 layout. It will hopefully find a home on the back of their couch and be a cuddle quilt. I will be blogging about it after I deliver it.
Also, I have included a selfie I took (not good at them) wearing my new shirt from Kalissa. I can’t find an email address for her anywhere on her blog. Could you please pass it along? And please tell Carver, thank you for the wonderful note.”
Oh, how FUN…both the quilt and the shirt. Amy blogs HERE. Please go over and check her out. I had not been to Amy’s blog before and found it very nice…dogs, quilts, house fixing up. All of those things are exactly what I love reading about.
About the quilt. This was out Moment of Zen quilt. (No we didn’t name the quilt but honestly, we stink at quilt names so likely couldn’t have come up with anything better.) It was featured in this issue of American Patchwork and Quilting…
Here is our version.
Both Amy’s and our version were made with the fabric line Cider. This is a quilt that I have kept. I keep very few quilts that were made with a fabric line but this one…I love.
It was a really fun quilt to make.
Now about the shirts…Kalissa asked me to tell you three things.
1. All V NECKS (they sold out in less than an hour during the last restock) are restocked including Sew Happy, Sew Happy Vneck and Blessed are the Piecemakers!
3. I have several of my SEASONAL shirts on sale – this includes Sunshine State of Mind, Bloom Where you’re Planted, Take a Hike, Antique Geek and Gone Junkin to make room for FALL SHIRTS and sweatshirts! These are all only $20 and may not be coming back again! They would make an excellent Christmas gift!
You can order shirts through THIS LINK to Kalissa’s Etsy shop.
Kalissa and I both had such fun reading through comments when she last did a giveaway so she wants to do another one. To be entered to win a shirt leave a comment here on the blog giving a logo idea or favorite color idea for a fall shirt for her to design.
Thanks so much to Amy for sharing her quilt and her shirt with us. How fun!! I look forward to reading all of your comments. We’ll pick a winner next week. I’m guessing we’ll do that on the fourth of August but I who knows. We had things planned for this past Wednesday but Carver ended up in the ER with pneumonia. I know better than to commit to much of anything!!
