I just love the vibrant, colorful sashings. Flowers and animal blocks combine to make a beautiful animal garden. While the quilting is subtle on the front, just look at the stitching on the ombre backing. Makes my green thumb happy!

This brings out the Irish in me! I loved all the greens in this quilt, and I had to add a variegated green thread when I was quilting this chunky spiral and star design. May the luck of the Irish be with this quilt!

All hand guided quilting on this sewing inspired quilt. I had so much fun doing background fills and feathers. I was sorry to see this one leave the studio, however, the excitement of my customer when she came to pick it up more than made up for it.

Bright pastels and vivid white sets the stage for a springtime quilting design with feathers and flowers. I love the backing fabric both is color and print so much that I used a matching thread for quilting.

When the daughter brought her father’s clothes to Ideal Stitches, she talked about his love of sailing. This quilt is full of sailing motifs, his red bandanas, and his khaki and navy pants. She was moved to tears when she picked this up. This is why I love my job!
