My first quilting job as Tanderwen Crafts

Better late than never:) I finished my first quilting job as Tanderwen Crafts the first week in Oct and since I have been sewing like mad trying to get ready for my next craft fair, I'm a little behind on posting this. This is Carrie P.'s quilt. She has been really generous in 'sponsoring' me in my endeavor to get a quilting business going. She made a beautiful little quilt that she calls Hearts of Imagination and asked me to quilt it.

Here is the quilt unbound. Carrie has some more close ups on her blog.

I love these little pearl centered on the darker pink border.

I found a picture of this feathered scroll work on Pinterest, which is probably my main source of quilting ideas. I have a board that is dedicated to quilting motifs that interest me.

I tried without success to find some closer photos of the lady's work. Her blog is called So using only this photo, I drew the center curved line on the outer border with water soluble marker and drew the swirls freehand.

I found the swirly pattern for the pink sashing using a Google search. It was an image that popped up, and of course, now that I am looking for it again, I can't seem to find it.

Thanks so much Carrie for letting me quilt your beautiful quilt!


  1. You did a great job, Laura.
    You made my quilt sparkle and I am glad to say it is done.
    Thanks so much. Can't wait to get you my next quilt.

  2. In my country there are not these machines! I could die for have one of those!
