Almost May already!

Hi All:)
It was a busy week here at Lou's Quilt'n Corner!!!

I got my May Wool BOM finished after I wrote last weekend blog:) Too cute!
Martha S made this beautiful Judy Niemeyer quilt.
I love quilting feathers and this was the perfect quilt for it! The points look as if they are 3D.
Her backing is perfect!
Dot made this sweet Cat quilt for her Kayla.
Such an old time look with the old...um antique calicoes:)
She pieced the back with left overs.
This is Dot's Project Linus quilt
Love the backing!
Here is Lucy Boston with 2 rows of those little one inch fussy cut flowers sewn on...only 3 more to go:)
More alphabets emb for Marie's quilt.
This is the one I have been working on at my Bee for the last few months. It is now officially a quilt top:)
Need to figure out the backing but know I am using red thread for the quilting!
Here are all the leftovers from the strip sets.... I am making blocks and then will figure out what to do with them. They will either go on the back …

Busy Busy week!!!

Hubby had the whole weekend off of MIL duty so we headed out yesterday to the big town of Cedar Park, Round Rock and Buda:) I will show you the goodies at the end:) Lots of fun!!! So since I was home most of the week I got a lot done!!!!
Here are the rows for Hubby's quilt that I have been working on at Bee every time. Need to sew them together, add borders and then figure out a back. Might get them all sewn this coming Bee?
This is Jean's quilt for her other grand son.
It's Hugs and Kisses. I think by using the variegated blue thread it looks more computerish?
Solid back really shows off the quilting!
This is Elaine's gran daughters quilt... it's the first she has made all by herself:)
I jazzed it up with the fun quilting!
I wanted the unquilted strips to pop like they were on top.
Margaret had me quilt this USA map for a teacher friend of her daughters. 
I pretty much outlined all the states and played a bit in the ocean:)
Elaine again:) This is an adorable Bamb…

Happy Easter 2017

Happy Easter!!!!Hope you re all having an eggcellent day! Just the 2 of us and a nice quiet day of rest after the very busy week! I had lunch bunch, flooding, and Bee this week so wasn't home but 2 days.
Did get quilting done:)

This is Janice's friends Feathered Star quilt. Just a beautiful traditional quilt!!!
She wanted it custom and I did that for sure!!! It has the most bobbin thread in it ever... can you guess how many?
There were lots and lots of feathers involved... very traditional!
Even the 17 in borders had feathers and bead board to fill in.
The corner had the bead board effect.
Here is a great picture of the back where you can really see all the quilting!
A closeup of the feathered star... think you saw that last week:)
And the feather border.
Also the bead board corner. There 35 bobbins in it:) Yup that's a lot!!!
We had a torrential storm pass through Monday night... 5 and a half inches and I think 3 ended up in the studio:( We moved the smaller cabinets so …

April is here with it's showers:)

We are to get a bunch of rain this week:) Which is good since everything is mowed and I have a new rain gauge:)
I worked on one quilt all week and I still need another day or 2 before it is done. But I got a few of my projects worked on... mostly handwork:)



This is a wool cat kit I had bought at Houston:) TOO cute!!!
Here is a glimpse of the quilt I am working on..... yes VERY custom!!!
Okay so Pat says they only let me out of the asylum to go to Dallas with her:) haha!!! These are the cornerstones for the Lucy Boston Crosses quilt.
The fussy cat squares are an inch in size... my finger is big compared to it:) Just a few more elongated hexies in the muslin and I should be able to start stitching it together.. of course have none of the border pieces made yet.
A new project I have started... it is a map of the US for my grand daughter for Christmas. All the states are fused and cut... not one fabric has been used twice and there are still tons of scraps:) I just need background fabric…
