I have "Spring Fever"!!

This is a new quilt pattern I have wanted to try out. Its very similar to my table runners, just in a quilt size. This fabric collection is called "spring fever" by Moda. I think that I am addicted to the moda fabrics!! They are so cute. This quilt measures aprox 40" by 40", the perfect size for a baby or toddler, or even as a lap or wheelchair quilt. The bright floral prints are sure to bring a little cheer during this cold winter weather!! This quilt will be selling on etsy for $120.00 US, although I am tempted to keep it for my little one!!

If you like this pattern, but would like to see some other fabric options, please email me and I can show you some options.

Adorable little dinosaur quilt.

I started this business selling only rag quilts just like this one. Lately, I have been busy with some other items like table runners, dresses and crayon rolls, but I still enjoy making the rag quilts. I love making these quilts for babies, there is something so special about a baby's blanket. Both my kids have their "blankies" and they just love them, I am so glad that I can make something that will be special to a new little person for years to come.

This blanket is made using the "Oh boy" line of fabrics designed by David Walker. The white print has orange, blue and green dinosaurs on it, the coordinating stripe is blue and green and from the same line. The back is a light blue flannel with little circles on it. Inside is soft and bright batting for softness and warmth.

It's never too early to start your Christmas Shopping!!

Its never too soon to start Christmas shopping for next season. I just finished these 2 table runners for a Client. This first one is made using "Holly Jolly Snowmen" by Moda. This was a custom order and this runner is aprox 5 feet long.

Side #1
Side # 2

This is another holiday themed runner, this one was made using Moda's "It's snowing" fabrics. I love love love the blues and the greens in this fabric combination. I am also a lover of snowmen, this runner is one of my favorites!!

If you are interested in ordering a table runner like these ones, please email me.

New Pillowcase Dress and Runner

Here are some photos of some new items I have been working on.

This is a recreation of the original pillowcase dress I had for sale, this is a size 7 and every bit as cute. I just love the pink and brown fabric combination.

This table runner was made using the Moda "Twiggy" collection of fabrics. It is backed and bound with a cream color fabric, perfect for any decor.

The latest table runner for Valentine's day

This table runner was made using Moda's L'amour line of fabrics. It is a custom order and the table runner measures a length of 5 feet. It was too big to fit into the frame on my camera, so here is one side of it...

And the other side....

And all of it, not a great pic...

I just love working with these precut fabrics, they are available in 5" square packs called charm packs. They come in a variety of different fabric lines. I just ordered a bunch more for some table runners and some baby quilts. Please stay tuned for some more photos as the projects are finished.

On another note, you can find me on facebook!! I had a group up and running and then facebook made some changes and now the place to be seems to be a fan page. So I have created a fan page and I would like all of you to become a fan of "Christine Taylor Quilts", as an incentive, I am offering the fans a chance to win a large crayon roll. Please check out the fan page for more info.

I am in love!!

I have fallen in love again, lol. This week I purchased a new sewing machine. Since business has been getting busier and busier, I thought that I would upgrade from my first real sewing machine. I started this business 4 years ago with a hand me down machine from my Grandmother. I was pregnant with my Son at the time and I truely believe that the urge to sew a quilt was some sort of nesting that was going on. I began making quilts for anyone I knew that was having a baby. Pretty soon I had people telling me that the quilts were great and that they really loved having something handmade for their little ones. Years later I was still using the same machine to make everything from quilts to crib bedding to crayon rolls and clothing. It was a great little machine, but it was time to upgrade. This past week I was introduced to the world of computerized sewing!! What a big difference in the time and ease of sewing. Here is what the new machine looks like:

It is also capable of embroidery which is very exciting to me as now I don`t have to send my items out to be done. For the Client, this means less waiting and the same professional look. I took a few moments and tried out the embroidery function, I still have some reading to do to learn more about placement, but here is what my trial looked like:

In other news, I am working on some Valentine`s table runners. I just love the fabrics that are available for Valentine`s day. I have posted some photos below. I will be ordering some more valentine`s fabrics as well as some cute fabrics for spring for the table runners, so stay tuned as there will be a limited amount available each season.
