June 22, 2013

Hello everyone!
I am posting one day early since tomorrow is my birthday!!!! I will be 33 again:) ha ha!!!!
It has been a hot and busy week for me:)
So onward with the pictures:
This is a panel I had bought in Fl at Christmas. I used Texture magic and wool batting and quilted it heavily. You really can't see that in the front view but definitely on the back:)

 
This is the Calla all steamed and scrunched up.



A great closeup! I made a pillow for Joan's anniversary.

I was a winner:) Yea!!! This came compliments of Lisa from In The Boondocks blog. Thank you again Lisa!

 
My June Toes in the Sand BOM.
Am really loving all the different blocks in this one! 

 
This is Jill's Tempest quilt. She always makes the neatest modern quilts. Because IT was so square she wanted swirls quilted on it so I used Deb's Swirls Panto in Grape colored thread.


Just beautiful!

This is the back. Love it!

 
This is what is in my hoop now that the Christmas quilt is finished. There is a picture below. I am making a sweet ABC quilt for my grand daughter for Christmas:) Each alphabet block will be 4x4 so it should stitch up fast!

 
 
These next quilts are all Christina's. First up is Batman.

I quilted a loop meander on all the panels.

 
 
This one is just SO girly:)

A soft flannel polka dot on the back.

Here is the Christmas stitchery that is ready to be quilted. It is Christmas Truffles. I used the wash away paper and printed the patterns on it and then stitched through it. Not as happy as I would of liked to be about it as now I have to quilt it, bind it and then wash all that away. I tried to just wash one block and it was to much work. Prob won't use it again.

 
I also made a name pillow for Benjamin who turned one yesterday but for the life of me I can't find the picture...I had to wait until his birthday to post  but now it is gone...maybe his mommy will send me a picture?
 
I heard that Google will discontinue their friends connect so if you want to just change to emails that is ok with me. I am trying to get the Bloglovin link up as I already follow a few blogs with that and it is pretty friendly. I will let you know when that happens.
 
Well I will be enjoying authentic Mexican food tomorrow and cheesecake. So much for the diet:) ha ha!!! Have a great week!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LOU! Wow you've got a lot going on. Love how your texture magic came out. Impressive. I might just need to try that out in the future.
