MY LATEST COMMISSION QUILT

I have made a number of commission quilts for a lovely lady...this one is the most recent for her toddler son, Ryland.  The theme was lions, as it became clear very early on that Ryland roars like a lion...

The quilt started with  a centre panel with an appliqu├ęd lion from a commercial pattern...various blocks made from scrappy fabrics surround the centre panel ...

Quilting was completed on a Longarm by me...each block was custom quilted...l love the way it turned out...

ARCH WINDOWS

Arch windows can be a challenge to work with...We don't want to hide the architecture and design of the window, yet we need privacy...so what to do with these windows has to consider both design and function...

ROMAN BLINDS


 
Roman Blinds are very popular...they are classic, clean, and contemporary yet they look great with more traditional treatments or decor...they look great under valances  or with drapery panels...suitable for any room in the house...

They can be lined with 100% blackout lining for darkness in bedrooms...

I have made several different styles of Romans and will highlight some here...

 Here are a few photos of some of my custom made home decor designs..
...The window treatment, called the Moreland, is designed with 100% taffeta embroidered silk and contrast lined with a solid coordinating silk.  It is trimmed with a custom matched fringe and tassles. Solid lined and interlined panels, pulled to the side with matching tiebacks complete the design.
...the bedding has a coordinating duvet cover with piping trim, flanged shams, neckroll and decorator pillows in assorted designs...
