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…
