Well this post is a direct sales ad, along with some pictures of a finished quilt! I mean I couldn't make this all business now could I?

First off, I have been taking a look around my house and I have started to notice that I live in a world of excess! I have so much stuff I have taken over 3/4 rooms in my house for my crafting and long arming. Some may be envious of that but I have decided that it is just too much!

So first off, I am selling my 4 needle embroidery machine. I tried finding the original post when I first got the machine, but I couldn't find it, so here is the link for the eBay listing:

Along with the machine you will also be getting the MB Pro Digitizing software along with about 25 Cd's full of embroidery patterns. If it is something that you are interested in, take a look at the listing and feel free to place a bid.

Other items that I have for sale that are not on ebay, I am going to offer here first to see if anyone wants to jump on these before I list them on ebay.

Smith Street Embroidery Designs- the cost will be $9.99 per pattern, plus shipping, which if you want several, I can fit in one priority mail package ($5.95 I think? I will check with the post office before shipping). If you have an embroidery machine, than you know just how pricey these designs are and at $9.99 this is a steal of a deal. These are brand new, never opened. These will be offered on a first come first serve basis. send e-mail to

Here's what I have:

Tulip Time- 2 available

Wild!Flowers- 1 available

Dots & Daisies- 2 available

More Wild!flowers- 1 available


More Pincushions-3 available

Roses In Bloom- 1 available


 Pin Cushions- 4 available

Pin Cushion Round Inserts-5 available $2.00 each

Pin Cushion Square Inserts-4 available

Grama Debbie's Towel Recipe Designs- 6 available $5.00 please check out her website at to see pictures of the towels. These have 10 savory recipes that you can stitch out.

If you have any questions please let me know! I will be listing other items here, so make sure you keep checking back or bookmark this page. I have to move this stuff out of my house! My husband and I might be moving and I don't want to pack it!

Enjoy! Rachel

PS Here is a picture of a quilt I finished for my friend.

I feel so behind the 8 ball! I am not sure exactly where that saying came from, but it seems to be fairly accurate. I have been busy quilting Quilts of Valor for my guild and I recently finished up another quilt for friend Karen. The QOV quilts have turbulence on them and the block quilt has Square Dance on it. SO without further ado... Enjoy! Rachel

I have been so bad at posting. I guess I lost a little of my mojo, between work and other things that I have going on in my life. I did recently finish a super cute fall wall hanging that I custom quilted with a stipple, Loops, and pebbles. I also finished another quilt for a friend with some straight line quilting. Both of them turned out super cute! So without futher ado...
Enjoy! Rachel

Two post in one day! I don't know if I can handle all of this! This quilt is for an orchestra conductor. I love the piano key fabric on the border. I quilted an all over pattern called notes. This would be great for any of those musicians that you have in your life. This pattern perfectly matched the fabric on the front. I think that this conductor is going to be impressed with his gift. Enjoy! Rachel


Things have been crazy busy lately for me. As many of you are aware, last year I quit my job to go out on the road. As fun as that was it just didn't pay the bills, so I had to go back into the work force. My new job as a social worker is very interesting to say the least. I now work in a prison! So literally when I say I feel like I am in prison all day, it's the truth! 

With that being said, I have been really busy with customer quilts, so this post is going to very picture heavy. Without further ado...

I used feathered curl on the quilt above. It gives such great coverage. 

 You may remember this Fons and Porter QOV quilt from one of my previous posts. The customer had enough left over fabric to make a second smaller version! 

 This star quilt is for one special little girl. I quilted it with feathered curl. I just love that pattern. It turned out great!

The quilt above is an Eleanor Burns pattern. This quilt was originally started by a customer over 8 years ago when I owned a quilt shop. She is now one of the owners of Mable and Ethel's Quilt Shop in downtown Sandusky, Ohio. She was nice enough to give me a shot and let me quilt one of her quilts as a sample for the shop. I did some straight line quilting in the outside border and a wishbone in the red border. The inside body of the quilt was quilted with an allover called swirls. In the outside cornerstone blocks I put in a swirl pattern, echoed around it and then did some free motion pebbling around it. It's going to look super cute when the binding is on it! Enjoy! Rachel

Recently, I was going through my camera and realized that I had pictures of quilts that I completed on it, but never posted! Silly me. So without further ado, here are some pics of customer quilts all quilted. Enjoy! Rachel

Fons and Porter

I know that there are many Fons and Porter fans out there, so I am guessing that you will be able to recognize this next quilt right away. A Quilt of Valor quilt for a returning service member. This quilt really makes one proud to be an American!

I quilted an allover stipple and stars design.

So without further ado... Enjoy. Rachel
