Quilts in The Shop

I'm feeling a little sick as I write this.
But I just wanted to let you know that I've listed four quilts in my shop that my darling SIL has made and wants to sell.  I love her style.  She does great work.  Here's one that I almost didn't list because I want it for myself.
(Like I'm secretly hoping it won't sell.  Because I really, really want it).


I feel like there is a little, teeny- tiny piece of me in these quilts and I'm sad to see them go.  We traded fabric for some of them (ie. the Crayola Zig Zag quilt  which you can read about HERE), I remember her working on each one of them, we talked and shared much excitement about them, I coveted and wished I had her sense of style on all of them.

So please, if you want to check them out (and maybe purchase one), please promise me you'll take real good care of them.  They were made with love.

I love this quilt but I don't see it in your shop.

I'm sure you could get a family member to buy the quilt for you! Good luck with the selling =D

You're such a sweet SIL. I enjoyed our swap too. But sometimes a girl can just have too many quilts. Did I just say that? Anyway you're the best! Thank you again!

This is beautiful! Did she have a pattern or make her own? Wow!

I don't blame you for wanting to keep the quilt. It is a really special one. A lot of quilt talent in your family. I remember the Crayola zigzag quilt. I loved it too. I've been enjoying and pinning a lot of your stuff on Pinterest.

A few of you have asked (and I've tried to respond on an individual basis) so I figured I should probably mention it here:

The dress form pattern is by Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilts.
I think it's called "Handmade".

So cute, right?

Happy Quilting!
