The LUSH Quilts
(a.k.a. I *heart* The Central Illinois Modern Quilt Guild)

First of all I wanted to thank you all for the sweet comments regarding my Lush fabric line. We are beyond excited about it! There is still time to enter the giveaway so go on over there and leave us a comment.

I mentioned before that my booth would be quite empty if it wasn't for the kind hearts of the members of The Central Illinois Modern Quilt Guild. These ladies sacrificed their entire weekend to help us make some amazing quilted projects for our Quilt Market display, so I'd like to dedicate this post to Terry, Pat, Melissa, Arlene, Jean, Vicky, Mary and of course, Emalee. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

There are 4 layers of quilt batting just under the "Lush" letters to give it that raised and poofy look...

  1. The quilt is absolutely beautiful! Love how those flowers go from the border onto the main part. Actually, I love everything about it and the fabric is the main star!

    OH WOW! What a lucky gal you are! I love each and every thing I've seen so far sewn with Lush. It has got to be my new favorite fabric line. Thank you so much for designing this for us! :)

  9. Beautiful Patty. I bet those women LOVED working in your fabulous space with all that light and room to move around. I absolutely LOVE the Lotus pillow and know I must buy that pattern soon.
    Good luck at Market.
