Made by YOU!!

I have a regular feature here on the blog.  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.

The first post comes from Christie.  She is sharing the quilt she helped her granddaughter Lauren make.

Christie writes:
Lauren is 10, she used a white jelly roll and a colorful one.  This is her first quilt.  She named her quilt “The Lauren and Gramma Christie Connection”.  She was so excited she finally finished it!  It measures 71 x 71.  Thanks for inspiring this new quilter with your pattern.”

I’m so happy to see that Lauren made our pattern her own.  This was inspired by our pattern Rainbow Connection in our book Country Girl Modern.  You can find the book HERE in our shop.


Lauren used the same idea only used jelly rolls instead.  WOW.  Great idea.  That made making the quilt ever quicker.

I love to see Grandma and Granddaughter sewing teams.  I hope I get to experience that someday.  I’m guessing Carver will be wanting to sew before long.  Maybe it will be a Grandma/Grandson sewing team here!!

The next quilt “Made by YOU!!” is from …

Doris.  Her sister sent the picture…
she writes:
My sister Doris made this quilt.  Inspired by one you showed a while back, I forget the name.  She dipped into her stash for the fabric.  The quilt was fun to make and lightens and brightens her room!

I think Doris did a take on our Jewels in the Curio quilt.  The block is the same but the layout is different.  Ours is in a barn raising layout.

Sorry for the small picture.  You can find the pattern for our quilt HERE.

Doris has a beautiful bright quilt with lots of fun prints.  It’s so fun to see what people do that is inspired by the projects Kelli and I do here on the blog.

Thanks so much for sharing your projects.  If you would like to share your project that was inspired by the blog, please send up a picture along with a few sentences about your quilt to

    Grandma grandchild collaboration is a treat not to be missed. My oldest granddaughter’s other grandma taught her her first crochet stitches. I had yarn that hadn’t been used so I washed it and gave it to her the joy on her face was a priceless treasure. We also cook and she’s learning to sew with me.

  2. It is so fun to see what others make from your inspirations. All are beautiful quilts. I agree it is so special to make an or teach with grandchild.

  3. You and Carver will have so much fun! My grandson has been sewing with me since he was a toddler, and recently we collaborated and designed and made a science-themed quilt together. He absolutely loves it ! (He just turned 12)

  4. I had a chuckle when you mentioned Grandma and Grandson sewing session. I reckon before you know it he will be taking your sewing machine apart!
