Yay! It’s Friday!

Hi there, everyone! I don’t know about you, but I am glad it’s Friday! Not only that, but I finally completed my reversible 60 inch quilted table cloth! Yay!

Pictured above is side one and side two of the table cloth. I hadn’t put them together yet, obviously.

But here is a couple pictures of the two sides put together. I can’t wait to put it on my table.

I really like both sides. Side one is so Spring-y and side two makes me think of cool lakes in the early Spring, still being embraced by Winter’s last snow. And, well, as you can see, we still have a bit of snow here in Montana. I’m not sad to see it go as I am looking forward to planting my lily bulbs and getting my garden started.

I didn’t use quilting batting in this tablecloth. I used a white cotton sheet instead. And instead of normal binding, I used Wrights Bias Tape Maxi Piping, in lime green (I bought it from Amazon.com). The quilting part was free motion machine quilting. Actually all I did was some channeling inside the blue squares and diamonds¬† on side one and then stitch in the ditch around the outside of the main body. Just enough to keep the tablecloth from bunching and getting squirrel-ly.

This first one was certainly a challenge and I learned a lot making it. I think I will make some changes on the next one,but that won’t be for a while. I have another quilt in mind that I am currently designing.

Just a reminder to all of you, I still have the Shades of Winter quilt available on Etsy.com by LodgePoleQuilting. It comes in four sizes and should you want it in different colors you can send me an email with your choice of colors. I will also be adding the reversible 60 inch quilted table cloth to the listing.

Also, be sure to check with your favorite fabrics stores and sites. A lot of them are having some great sales celebrating Spring and their new fabric collections. I am drooling over the fabric at FabricDepot.com.¬†Annie’s Craft Store has some awesome sales happening as well. Don’t forget the Fat Quarter Shop, either.

Thank you for coming by and have a great weekend.

Until next time – Who has tulips?

Shades of Winter designed, made and quilted by LaTawnia Porter

Good evening everyone! I am very excited to share with you my first listing on Etsy.com! I have listed the Shades of Winter quilt to be custom-made for different sizes and prices. So if you would like to purchase a custom-made Shades of Winter quilt then hop over to Etsy.com and look for LodgePoleQuilting.

There will be free shipping for every quilt no matter the size. You can choose different colors for your primary color if you don’t want it to be black and white. There is also a contact where you can email me if you have questions. When you place your order it will be 6 to 8 weeks to ship because I will of course have to make sure I have all of the fabric needed and time to make it beautiful.

I plan on listing more custom quilts as I design them. So be sure to check and see what is new at the Etsy store and on the Designing Quilts page here. I look forward to hearing from you soon with an order!
