Asymmetrical Blue and Green Clergy Stole


I just finished this clergy stole a few minutes ago and wanted to show you. This fabric is by Timeless Treasures. I love the colors: blue, aqua, purple and greens. They're cool and soothing. This stole took less time to make than the one in the last post, but I spent some time deciding how to position the pattern before cutting the fabric. I like that green stripe. I don't know if my customers will like the asymmetry, but I'm guessing they will. See more details in my Etsy shop: Water Stole #191.
And if you're in the mood for Pinning, thanks!

Blue and Green Clergy Stole


Quilters will recognize these fabrics! Yup, I used my blue and green Westminster fabrics to make this clergy stole, and I think the result is delicious! This is Joyful #185. (I started with #1, and this is my 185th stole! I tend to go overboard with things.)

In case you're new to clergy stoles, they're worn by many ordained Protestant clergy. Some are subtle, and others, not so much. Haha.

P. S. I'm hoping my readers will help me by Pinning the listing. Thanks!

Pat Kilmark's First Prize Quilt!


This fabulous quilt by Pat Kilmark won first prize at Quiltfest in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee in March.
She used my Fandango pattern for the center, then she invented an awesome asymmetrical border. I particularly love those polka dots and the striped fabrics in the fans. Lots of action there.
Congratulations, Pat!!

Boho Springtime Quilt by Monique


I found this colorful quilt on Etsy. It was made by sewfunbymonique in California. She used Jennifer Paganelli's fabric line: Crazy Love. Such a simple design, but the bright fabrics do all the work.
Monique uses minky on the back and no batting in the middle. Clever, Monique!
