#quiltcrush

Portrait quilts are a thing, people!! Alas, I cannot take credit for this absolute beaut (Jennifer Haston Quilts, hats off! πŸ‘ and please tell me where it ended up). I've picked out a few more of my faves (link in bio), featuring @lelandavestudios' iconic Lincoln quilt, a majestic homage to Prince by @msmidge and, of course, there HAD to be an Elvis number ;) Sure, head on over!

I really want to copy this quilt I spotted in the show at #quiltmarket2017 yesterday. I ❀️ it because, Eichler + Quilting = Awesome. @mickeybeebe we should totally be friends. #eichlerstyle #modernquilt #quiltcrush

As if I don't have about a dozen WIP's... I had to stop everything and start this quilt. The acrylic template even has the measurements for the setting squares and triangles!!! Sigh... #victoriafindlaywolfe #mostlymanor #bigblockstarquilt #acrylictemplate #holyfussycutting #thedreadedyseam #iloveorange #quiltcrush #quiltADD #sewmystash2017

Here we are: 4 blocks from finishing and I realize a few things: I'm still crushing too hard on this project to finish it up and it's a little on the small side. Good news- I can fix both of those problems by keeping on keeping on. Luckily/unluckily a true #quiltcrush has no cure! #queenscrossquilt by #jenkingwell. #patchwork #patchworkquilt #amitietextiles #handpiecing #scrappyquilt #scrapquilt #needmorefabric !

The #festivalofquilts2017 was so fun yesterday! All the beautiful quilts, good shopping and the inspiration everywhere. What makes it truly great though is the people! New friends + old friends, catching up and chatting. I went especially to meet one very special person, Clare @selfsewn. We've 'known' each other online for years. I learnt to epp from her blog, inspired to start by her #rosestarquilt and she always makes the most beautiful quilts. Now I have an incredible mini quilt she kindly made just for me πŸ’— I absolutely adore it, the hand stitching is gorgeous and the fact it has our blog names on it is so perfect! Thank you so much Clare - for the quilt, for being real and for the proper laughs (and tears!) ❀️❀️❀️ #quilt #quilter #miniquilt #handquilting #selfsewn #fabricfriends #quiltyfriendsarethebest #girlcrush #quiltcrush #love #foq2017

This week's quilt crush is a throwback to one of the quilts at last year's show. We are big fans of the use of shape in this quilt. #FOQ2017 #quiltoftheweek

Happy Friday everyone! There's nothing like a quilt going for a swim to get you in the mood for the weekend β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈ #Repost @mtweedel

Now for some finishes! My sister in law's #scrappytriparoundtheworld #quilt was a very quick trip for sure It's 60" square and backed with minky (and no batting) so super soft and cuddly πŸ’•

My friend @runmomrepeat held a raffle to benefit Dana Farber Cancer Institute and I donated a store credit to my Etsy shop. The winner brought me her daughter's special swim and school tshirts to make a memory quilt. Of course I used some #artgalleryfabrics from #amysinibaldi. I love the way it turned out, I hope she does too. #quiltsofinstagram #tshirtquilt #quiltcrush

I've got another #quiltcrush. Planning phase is the most fun! But that doesn't mean I'm not still falling hard for my queens cross, bracelet hexies, steam punk, or Circle Game. It's fun to have a quilt for every mood and amazingly none of them are being neglected, averaging about one block per quilt per week. #neveradull block, #sewallthethings #scrapbusters

Ive decided and I can't concentrate on anything else #quiltcrush #queenscrossquilt #andawaywego

Everyone knows I love #jenkingwell, like kind of on the level of obsessed. So here I sit between my own projects, narrowing down my options for my next JK quilt. (I've made seven already, or at least variations on them). So far these have made the final cut. (Not including my steampunk in progress) #greatreads #lovethemall #neverenoughtime

Day 2 prompt for #MarchMeetTheMaker is "favorite to make". I love baking chocolate chip cookies! I love to eat one right off the pan, just as soon as it has cooled enough to handle. I may or may not have a super, top secret recipe that I may or may not be willing to share!
But seriously, I love making quilts and purses and aprons and pillows and...well, I just love to sew! Period. I love choosing a pattern, then choosing the fabric(s), then watching the whole mess come together again. I have been sewing almost as long as I can remember. And that's a long time, because I'm pretty old!

Joining another photo challenge. Why? Because it helps me feel connected to so many amazing people, from all over the world! It reminds me that my little corner of the world is just a very small part of something so much bigger.
Day 1 of #MarchMeetTheMaker is "You", meaning me, of course. I'm Jenny and I am the owner of a small online company, "the shabby trunk". I make handcrafted quilts, bags, aprons, pillows and more, to give away and to sell in my etsy shop. I also design patterns...mostly quilts.
My family is the center of my universe and it's a good thing I like them. Lol. We have six children, thirteen grandchildren (#14 due in June), and we are currently raising three of the grands (ages 2, 5 and 10). Things are always hoppin' around here, so I will probably need to skip a few of the prompts, but I'm looking forward to getting to know @joannehawker and all the other makers! Thanks for letting me play along!

Got my hands on the #feministquilt by the amazing @darcialexis tonight. We decided this one is destined for the history books. Plus, half-square triangles for days! Pattern coming soon!
