I often claim to have a Quilting "Hobby" in attempts to hide my obsession with fabric and color.

Trying something new

So I decided to try something new with my web business.

I am in the process of making several quilts (yes, I do multiple projects at once) and rather than finish them to my design, I am going to make just the quilt tops and then offer the ability for the customer to pick their preference for the backing. Either a solid color/muslin or a flannel. Mmmmm, who doesn't like cuddling up under flannel on a Sunday afternoon for a nap?

Here are the first offerings under my "new" system:

Grand Finale (I don't have a witty name for it). Made from the Fall 2011 Moda Grande Finale line. I will bind it with the Polka dot fabric. Not sure the final size yet, but it will be on the smaller side~ thinking I should probably figure that out, huh?

And then "Spider Webs"!  This is the first "string" quilt I have ever made, and boy has it been fun. Not having to worry about precise cutting. Well, ok, so the background is, but then the scraps just get sliced up and sewn on! This one is going to end up being about 60" sq.

Will post more pictures as I get the tops finished.

Please stop by www.myquiltcorner.com if you haven't already and let me know what you think!


  1. Love, love, love! Great ideas on letting others decide the backing. Makes for quick turn around on projects currently in the midst.

  2. Michelle,I love the the psychedelic spider web, but I actually see stars. The pastels are going to make for a great Spring/Easter gift. I also love the idea of a flannel backed quilt, what a neat idea! Such beautiful work! T


Thanks for coming! Let me know what you think, ideas, suggestions, or just say hi! I love knowing you were here!
