Open House

A huge thank you to all that came out on Saturday for our studio open house. It was a fantastic day and the turn out more than we expected. We were so busy we didn't even get a chance to take many pictures.

Some of you may have noticed a few changes outside when you came. I decided the weekend before that our yard needed some sprucing up. Our lovely huge hydrangeas become diseased and within 2 weeks went almost completely black. They didn't bloom all summer; I thought it was as a result of the crazy heat we were having.

It was time to call a professional lol.

The hydrangeas were pulled out with a backhoe(I should have gotten a picture of the root balls!) and some new shrubs and plants were added.

A HUGE thank you to Hanson's Landscaping who went above and beyond in finishing what I started. It looks spectacular.

Lost but not Forgotten

I  found a bunch of quilt pictures saved on my computer but I don't remember whose quilts they are. If you know whose quilts, let me know so I can credit the piecer.

Quilted with Happy Times

Love this next one.

Quilted with Bayside.

Some aren't the greatest pictures.

Quilted with Laurie.

This next one was pieced by Linda.

Baptist Fan was the perfect choice.

One of my favorites.
Quilted with Cycles.

Another favorite quilted with Swirls.

I must start taking better notes!

Fun in the sun

We are truly having a never ending summer. And what a better way to enjoy that than with this fun Hawaiian shirt quilt.

Isn't this a fun quilt? I love how Jeanne did this.

Of course we went with a surf theme with the quilting and I did Seaside on it.

Now it's time for me to get started on something very special.

A few more finishes

From this week.

This fun quilt by Jackie.

Jackie picked the pantograph Mozart.

Kaye made this lovely quilt.

Kaye chose Water as her pattern for quilting. I love how it doesn't overpower the quilt.

And for Sue

Sue picked Loopies; so fun!

Some of my favorite quilts are the scrappy ones. It's always fun to see how my clients use up their scraps.

Solange made this stunning Dresdan quilt using up all her Asian fabric scraps.

Good thing I took more than one picture as that one is so blurry.

Solange wanted minimal quilting so we went with a meander.

Shirley made a simple scrappy quilt.

Kept the quilting simple again and went with my Water Circle Lord board.

And for Jeanne

More simple quilting, this time with Surf's Up.

Maybe I should start using some of my scraps.

I started

My first Christmas present.

I haven't decided yet if I'll make it into a pillow or a small quilt.

I also quilted this wedding quilt for Linda.

Guests wrote messages on blocks and Linda made the quilt for her daughter.

Had to quilt the quilt with Folk Heart. Perfect choice for a country wedding quilt.
