As I was looking back over what I accomplished quilt-wise in 2018, I noticed a few items that didn’t get posted here on Snip-Itz, so here’s a short and sweet look at 4 quilt projects from the last year —
Granny’s Glamper Quilted Accent Pillow
This adorable coordinating pillow was part of DeVon D.’s “gift with purchase” for the quilt she ordered to fit her teardrop camper. I think she liked it, because, after receiving it, she wrote,
“I told my husband he has to paint my camper to match the one on the sham! I’m not even kidding.”
In July, Sheryl M. contacted me about a Pittsburgh Steelers custom quilted checkers game. Seems that she works in a nursing home in Pennsylvania and thought the residents would enjoy playing. They must have ~ because in August she contacted me to have a second Steelers checkerboard made!
Hello There Hello Kitty
After finding me through the Whimzie Quiltz website, most returning customers contact me directly for new projects. So it was extra fun to just see 4x customer Gus H.’s name pop up on an Etsy store order in August for this Hello Kitty custom quilted checkerboard game. Glad he knew that, no matter how someone gets in touch ~ directly, through the website, through Etsy or Facebook ~ it’ll be the same great Whimzie Quiltz experience no matter what!
Sunny Day, Sweeping the Quilts Away
In 2014, I made a no soliciting sign, a no trespassing sign and two pillows ~ all quilted ~ for our home. This year, the constant sun, wind and dew exposure finally did them in. So this is the new set (the pillows aren’t pictured). I figure I have until 2022 – unless we move 😀 – before I have to do it again.
