Green Fairy Quilts

Have you seen the latest edition of Quilts and More (summer 2010) ?

Great magazine with a lot of fun projects inside.

I was especially happy to see on page 67 that the featured quilt was Seaside Cottage by Judi Madsen of Green Fairy Quilts.

Whoohooo!!! Congratulations Judi!!

Judi is a young mom, and a fabulous long arm quilter. I remember when she moved to St. George just a few years ago to promote her business. Her husband Clint had quit his job to run the business end of GFQ, and to help Judi reach her dreams.
I knew the first time I saw her quilting, she would be a success. Judi has 3 children, with #4 on the way, and works out of her home. All of her longarm work is done free hand and each piece is original and stunning.
Recently she won 1st place at HMQS in the Novelty Custom category. Yea Judi!
This is just the beginning.

Judi just lives a few blocks from my house, so it's easy to run over and take my quilts to her.
The latest two she has done for me have been "All Dressed Up" (designed by my friend Nanette of Freda's Hive)

And my Kaffe Baskets Quilt.
I have been so pleased with everything I have taken to Judi.
Make sure to visit Judi's web site where you can order her original patterns, fabrics, and precuts. You can also see samples of her custom long arm work on the blog.

Loved where you hung your quilt!

Met Green Fairy quilts at the HMQS...you are right, she has lots of talent! Would love to have her quilt some of my quilts but she is definitely booked solid! Good for her!

Oh you're such a nice friend Nedra. Thanks for reshowing your quilt. I always get orders when quilts are shown. Judi did a lovely job on this and your baskets. Isn't it wonderful when our friends succeed! It makes me so happy. Even to know a friend of a friend like Judi, gets recognized it makes me swell with pride.
