 All prices are listed in US dollars and include shipping/tracking within the US.  I am happy to send additional photos upon request. Please, serious inquiries only.  Quilts will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. I will respond to all emails as soon as I receive them and update status here. As always, thank you for your interest and time.

#4 Define Circle for me
This quilt was a bee quilt from the amazingly talented flickr group Fresh Modern Bee 2 This quilt measures 60"wide by 80" long.  Batting is Quilters Dream Cotton, backing is Anna Maria Horner velveteen. The background fabric in this quilt is a natural linen, lots of out of print Heather Ross.  The first photo collage and the second photo showing the mustard velveteen back were taken today, the remainder of the photos were taken before the quilt was washed and while the quilt was being quilted. Because this quilt has been washed the actual quilting stitches, cotton and linen fabrics, and cotton batting have all shrunk, the quilt has a wonderful soft drape and definitely has started to take on the appearance of an heirloom/antiqued quilt.  SOLD

#5 Down the Rabbit Hole
Pattern is Maple Leaf Rag from Sarah Fielke's book,  Material Obsession 2.  The webs spilling out into the border were my original idea designed with the ghost web/wreath quilting in mind.  This quilt is a fabric diary and has many rare and out of print fabrics.  The name of this quilt is inspired by the Alice in Wonderland fabric from Heather Ross's Munki Munki collection,  Alice can be found tumbling through the webs.  In addition to out of print Munki Munki fabric this quilt has a great deal of Kaffe, Echino, HR, Alexander Henry, Silk, Suzuko Koseki, Japanese and vintage Kimono fabrics.  All of the quilting is custom hand guided, some of the feather motifs are quilted using contrasting pale green and aqua softly variegated thread.  The grey border is charcoal grey vintage linen.  The quilt measures 70" square,  it hangs very straight.  Quilt has never been washed, backing is a made from leftover scraps of Kaffe Shot cottons and Anna Maria Horner Flannel, Batting is Hobbs Polydown, has a hanging sleeve and is very cleanly bound with Denise Schmidt teal and black fabric. 
 SOLD

Opposing Triangles was pieced by Katie Pedersen and custom hand guided quilting was done by me. The background is Osnaburg, the custom quilting motifs are swirls and ghost opposing triangles.

The backing is a beautiful lavender Kaffe Fassett fabric, the binding is Osnaburg with a white flange. $1100.00

  2. As a small time Longarmer of 17 years your talent has inspired me and helped me get past another quilting burn out. I'll miss seeing your wonderful creativity but if you are as talented in what new endeavor you choose, you'll be a success. Find your happy place.

  5. Krista, your quilts are amazing. The Marcelle Medallion just blew me away. I'm so sorry that you've gone through the burn out and disillusionment. I've been through the same thing in my current career and look forward to retiring in a few years. I wish you the best.
