Summer Quilty Goodness ~

Hi there!  Summer is going by so fast… as always… as life always does!  And so goes my quilting days, too.  The time just speeds by for me in pure pleasure {even with a ripper in my hands at times!}… , and I LOVE LOVE IT! There’s just something about summer that motivates me and adds  energy to my days… and that’s a longer daylight kind of day!  Yippee!!

Today I’m showing some of the creative quilting and quilts I’ve made this summer. Many of these have been posted in snapshots on my Facebook page, and of course, my Instagram one, too.

Anyway ~ my newest version of my “Sun Blossom Pony” collage pattern is one I’m featuring today, with some detailed photos.  I LOVE how it turned out!!!  Not only does it feature beautiful custom quilting with bobbin play in gorgeous metallic thread quilting, and beading too… it’s also showcases the spectacular gland-dyed gradient “Barrier Reef” by Vicki Welsh  Colorways by Vicki.

If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll recognize the fabric as the inspiration behind a similar quilted table topper featured earlier on the blog, right here.  And this Sun Blossom quilt is also listed in my etsy shop for sale!  I don’t often put them up for sale, but this one is!

And… a few of my cute little collaged tea towels, or kitchen linen towels, also are now in my etsy shop, too!  They are so fun to make, and so incredibly easy, too!!  All you need is a simple linen towel, some fused and cut flowers and there you go!  They are such neat gifts to give, too.  In case you’re interested, I’ll be listing KITS for linen towels with the pre-cut flowers, cute words, and pretty towels,…. very soon!!  So stay tuned… and if you’d like a custom kit, I’d do my very best to get one to you that you like… and of course you can preview it before you buy.  Just contact me here on the website!  Leslie@MarveLesArtStudios.com!

And I’ve been playing with my newest pattern, “A Story to Tell” with the fabulous Moda Grunge Marks The Spot fabrics, too!  {Kinda addicted to this fabric!}  I adore the richness of the chocolate brown and pink color story… check it all out below! I’ve  finished quilting it, and it’s now been recently listed for sale, too… I have another one “in the hopper” and when I get it finished I’ll be showing it as well!  It’s done in the pink dot fabric….

So MANY thanks for coming by and all your wonderful support!  Bless your Summer Days!!!
