Quiltsy Team Great Finds: 11-23-14 Starting to think about Christmas.....

Hello!  I'm back from the family Caribbean Cruise vacation!  Many Thanks to Kim of Gallagher Quilting for the last write-up on table runners.  She had some "great finds". :-)

She also made me think about Christmas presents.  While I am one totally against rushing holidays past others, I decided to make an exception with this pre-Thanksgiving post about potential Christmas presents from the Quiltsy Team.  Our team works hard to make the beautiful handmade items you see featured here, but in each shop, are more!!

Please CLICK ON the team link to see more!.....and now, please welcome.....

My mother and I make up the Olive Street Studio design and sewing team.  I cannot remember my mom NOT sewing or quilting.  Since 2003, we've made chenille and cotton baby quilts, baby gift sets, little girls dresses and skirts.  In 2013, we expanded into Home Decor quilts and after getting requests for even bigger quilts, we're working on largers quilts too.  Then, with extra time, because we all have extra time, ha ha, we also make reversible tote bags, smaller handbags, and zipper pouches.  I joined the Quiltsy Team on Etsy in 2010.

Quiltsy Team Great Finds: 11-18-14 Table Runners!



Warm greetings from the land of 10,000 lakes (now frozen) of Minnesota!

Well it is that time of year when the holidays are fast approaching, and for some of us, the weather is changing from nice to barely tolerable!  When I think about holidays I think, "how will I decorate for them?"  The one main staple of decorating for me is having table runners on my kitchen table, in the living room on the end tables under the lamps, and small ones on the top of my toilets (yes, they work better than the fuzzy covers you buy in the store and much more chic).  In addition, they make the best hostess, teacher, or co-worker gifts!

I have found some beautiful holiday table runners in the following Etsy shops to make your shopping easy and fast.  Remember, PLEASE CLICK on the team shop to see all their beautiful items!

I started Gallagher Custom Quilting because originally quilting for me started as a hobby and something I did with my sisters.  Now, quilting is more than a hobby - it's a passion!  I love making custom quilts for all occasions and especially like creating quilts with a specific theme and table runners.  I also provide custom longarm quilting services.  I joined the Quiltsy Team on Etsy in 2013.

Quiltsy Team Great Finds: 11-8-14

Hello--
November is here, but on Long Island, we've been having mild temps.  I guess I don't want to jinx the weather, but it has been so nice!  And the longer I can hold off on putting on the heat, the better for my pocket.  I know the weather will feel November in no time, so I found these great quilts to snuggle under and keep warm. But quilting is not only for "quilts" - finer artists make great, original bags and bracelets too.  

Remember, PLEASE CLICK on the team shop to see all the lovelies these talented quilters have made!
