Loose Change 2
Loose Change 1
Matching quilts in a custom size are destined for RV bunk beds! Much more bright and cheerful than the stock covers that come with an travel trailer. The title comes from the name of the pattern used to piece the quilt tops. I am so motivated now to make a quilt for our 5th wheel! Like I really need a new quilt but I would like to use some of the interior design colors so it will coordinate. First, I need a pattern and second new fabrics, ohhh that means shopping!

Fussy cut stars in the center of the blocks and cornerstones inspired the stars and swirls quilting. I love how it shows up in the borders. This quilt top went from nice to spectacular.

The label tells a heart breaking story of an original quilt that was stolen, but it doesn’t tell the story of how a loving son brought this reproduction quilt to completion. First he found a set of piecers who searched for matching fabrics to the original based on photographs and added identical pieced pinwheels to Lesley’s extra orphan blocks. Second, he had the newly pieced pinwheel top brought to Ideal Stitches so that I could duplicate the quilting. When Madison came to visit her grandmother, they both came to Ideal Stitches to pick up the quilt. It touched my heart to be part of the heartwarming reconciliation.

Just in time for Halloween. I knew I had seen the perfect all over design for this quilt. I searched and searched until I found this creepy vine design. I can’t imagine any thing else on this spooktacular quilt!

Here is another of the Holiday Parade of Homes quilt. Check out the texture of the holly leaves and swirls in the quilting. That added so much to the background. This is a queen size quilt intended to cover a bed during the open house.
