Show & Tell: Quilt by a customer

Occasionally a customer is kind enough to share their finished projects, which is incredible!

It’s a reminder and inspiration to get behind my own machine and to select carefully when purchasing new fabrics for the shop!

Today, Erin Otte-Meyer, a quilting enthusiast, is sharing one of her latest creations with us all!  What great inspiration; thank you Erin!  She created this modern quilt for a friend’s baby, Miles.  She prefers to make her quilts reversible so they are lovely either way.  Always my favorite philosophy!  Reversible is the two for one I try ALWAYS to embrace!

Erin carefully collects the fabrics, starting first with one or two prints that speak to her, and then building from there.  I adore how she stepped out of the idea of quilting by fabric collection and used her design eye to gather what spoke to her!  She did it so gracefully.

She tells me she takes the time to draw patterns out on graph paper and measure things out based off of the drawings.  After they are assembled she HAND QUILTS the blanket using DMC Cotton Perle #8.   For this quilt, in particular, it was her first time using yellow.  She felt unsure about it initially, but I think we can ALL agree it turned out amazing!
