~ Creativity by our Customers ~

Many of you are so much more creative than you give yourself credit for, or are sewing/designing/quilting as a creative endeavor without ever planning on entering competitions.  We understand!  So, for all you unsung creative types we want to spotlight your work here each month.  Send us a photo and all the particulars (maker, pattern, designer) to newsletter@lunnfabrics.com and we'll showcase you and your projects here!

A friend of the shop, Nancy Meyer, paper-pieced this intricate quilt using our Artisan Batiks and the Tessellation pattern.  The quilting was completed by Lindy Wesney.  Stop by the shop soon to see this stunning work of art!


Here's our youngest, award-winning quilter!  Meet Allie Carter and her award winning quilt.  She won an award at the Ohio State Fair through her 4H program using our Artisan Batiks.  Congrats Allie!  You do beautiful work!


Talk about a photo not doing a quilt justice - created by Scott Flegal this quilt is KING size.   The only way we could photograph it was using a photo Scott had on his phone which he took by laying the quilt out on the grass.  Absolutely stunning! 


We carry patterns by Karen Eckemeier of the Quilted Lizard and one of her patterns is called Silly Snowmen.  Diana McDaniel took the snowmen applique portion of it and made several mug rugs for gift giving in the upcoming Christmas season.  Beautifully made with our batiks, I'm sure these mug rugs will be appreciated and cherished!

A customer recently purchased this beautiful tiger batik and look at her creativity!  Deborah Williams - you rock!


We offered a class here at Lunn Fabrics in August and helped these fine ladies make gorgeous wedged, pieced Dresden plates for a wall hanging or table runner.  Beautiful work!

Recently, two new projects were brought in the shop for an impromptu show and tell -  Loraine Smith made this stunning jelly roll quilt from our batiks AND made a tote to match!  Perfect for storing that quilt when you're not snuggling under it.  On the right - Gwendolyn Brown shared this black and white quilt recently as well.  Nice work Gwendolyn!

Ellen C. made two quilts for twin grandaughters.  Ellen writes, "Quilters love sharing, seeing the work of others, and inspiration.  In fact the quilts in my picture were inspired by one that was on your shop wall in late 2015.".  And on the right - This one, called Shadow Play, was pieced by Pat Harris and she brought it into the shop to show us.  Beautiful work Pat!  Quilting was done by Catie Gynn.

Another beautiful work of love!  This one was machine pieced by Katherine Ward and machine quilted by Ruthie Hoover. Thank you for sharing.

Do you have or know about a quilt, tote, wall art, garment, or other project that has been made utilizing our batiks?  We'd love to showcase the work here!  Email us a photo and we will do our best to add a picture of the work here.  We need to know (and credit) the original designer or pattern maker, plus the permission of the actual artist/sewer.

Our 2017 Patchwork Pillow Project & Contest has ended for the year.  As you view the winners, please realize that these small thumbnail photos do not do the pillow tops justice.  Many are intricate and detailed beyond what the photo shows.  Stop in the shop before the end of November to see them in person.  We donate 10% of our gross sales to support the Ganesa Study Center in Java Indonesia as our way of giving back to the Javanese people who make our high quality batiks. Our customers have made these Pillow Tops for the children and families who visit the Ganesa Center.   We, here in the shop, will make a pillow back and they will be stuffed with the pillow form once they arrive in Java
The Javanese people traditionally do not use chairs so they sit or kneel on the floor in the library. A pillow is ideal for comfort so we want to help the Study Center visitors by providing a large pillow top (22" x 22") made by YOU!
