Karin is a knitter not a quilter so she commissioned me to make her this lovely quilt:) We bought all the fabric in Salado last year and I finally got it finished:)
There are 6 panels sewn together and then the borders to make it queen size:) Lots of scroll and outline quilting!
Just turned out beautiful!!!!!
Hard to believe the holiday season is swiftly approaching!!! At least we are having some cooler weather and even rain:) yea!
I had a customer ask me if I was getting burned out yet... I truthfully answered yes. It is like any thing that turns into a job instead of fun time all the time. The pressure to meet a quota to pay bills... esp the BCBS one:( It seems that the insurance premium goes up every year and the quota goes up but the fun does not:( I know what you are all thinking... she is going to stop quilting for others soon... I plan to do this for as long as I am able to. I will stop when I don't feel like my quilting is good enough anymore. Hopefully one day someone will find an insurance program or plan is more affordable. Mine is no longer available... I have had it for 6 years...so if I change withing BCBS I get a worse plan with higher deductible so I am in a catch 22 so to speak:(
I don't like Dr's as they always and I mean always find something wrong with me …
The temps have gotten up to 70 before plummeting to the low 20's again:( The Groundhog or in our case the Armadillo did say there would be 6 more weeks of winter:( UGH!!!
Does tend to keep a body home and sewing:) Of course this week I wasn't home but 2 days.... 2 Bee's and errand day... still got things done:)
Got another block stitched out:)
Elaine made this sweet baby quilt.
I love that she let me "play".
It is for a little girl... I think she will love it!!!
Margaret stitched these out...she does such a great job!
Love that she used variegated thread for the roses... thought she kept changing threads... so glad she didn't:)
Solid white backing to show off the quilting:)
Cam made this memory quilt for her sorority sister.
These were pics 2 years before the son committed suicide:(
I hope it comforts her!
I bought these panels a few years back on sale and decided they needed to be a chemo quilt:)
All quilted and I bound it at We Care Bee.
Have decided to kee…
Yes we still watch football..... not happy with some of the teams behavior but it's still football:) Go EAGLES!
As I am typing this Hubby is tearing out part of his bathroom wall:) YEA!!!
And my Jury Duty has been cancelled for tomorrow:) What an awesome day!!!
Busy week quilting here:
This is the first of Tricia's quilts. It is from the pattern Chopsticks by Jaybird Quilts. Yes I have one already cut out using a Tula bundle:)
I custom quilted it:)
Remember if you click on the picture it will make it bigger:) I SO want you to see the quilting!
The backing is really cool!
Another one made by Tricia!
VERY modern and fun for me to quilt!!!
As you can see in the closeup:) I used a new ruler on the border and lots of swirls.
It needed a bit of color so there are straight lines of color coming off the blocks:) Really cool!!!
The backing really goes well with the quilt:)
Lenore made this Disappearing 9 patch quilt using some batiks.
Feathers in the border and then curlz all over.
