whelp. it has been FAR too long since i last posted here, and i have a lot of catching up to do!
2020 was a lot of changes, but i left my teaching job after playing the waiting game and now work FULL TIME at a local quilt shop, which means i get to make shop samples
the first one up that wasn’t a holiday one was one i have been dying to do for myself, and it is the elizabeth hartman dinosaurs quilt. my boss asked me to make a shop sample, which is leading to making kits as well, so i pulled some of my most favorite grunge in my favorite colors and created this little beauty. we also have qnique 21 long arms at the shop, so i was able to quilt it with the perfect pantograph to coordinate. i love this sooooo much, and i will absolutely be making it larger for myself!!
i pieced my backing using the star version of one of the greens used in the plants combined with scraps from the fat quarters that i didn’t use.
What a dream job!! That’s so neat you get to do the samples too! Do you get to keep it after it’s no longer displayed or does it belong to the store?
Ah! It’s so awesome! Love the colors, too. Can’t wait to see more store samples from you! Congrats on the job!
It looks great! I love Elizabeth Hartman’s designs.
I think you might have just found the job of your life! What a fabulous looking and fun quilt! Love what you did to the back as well…both sides can be displayed or used!
Great quilt! I used to work at a fabric store, and we got to keep projects we made for display. But stores vary.
This is super cute! I love all of the dinosaurs!
RAWR! This turned out great! And congratulations on your new job!
Congratulations on your new job, it sounds amazing! The grunge colors work perfectly here, great color choices! I like how you added some of the dotted material as well. This will make a really nice kit!
So cute! I love your color selection too. Congratulations on the new job.
How absolutely adorable! I adore the colors you used too!
Also congrats on landing a job that sounds so perfect for you!!
i totally do!
not that i have anyone baby sized in my life to give it to yet, but it will definitely hang on my own wall when it’s mine again!
That is adorable. I like the colors too.
Love this so much!!
I’m planning to make the same pattern for my oldest grand daughter this year but in pinks.
I LOVE this! I love how the back and the front are both so gorgeous. Great work.
I love dinosaurs! This is so cute. The colors are absolutely perfect. I want to see the bigger one you make for yourself too. It’s going to be amazing too. Jealous of your skills, and job!
Oh, that is precious! The little dinosaur shapes all over in the quilting really are darling!
It’s gorgeous! Great job! Love dinosaurs
I love this! The colours and the pattern. Fabulous
