Hello, is anyone out there?

We've been back for just over two weeks and I jumped right back into quilting when we got home. Before I show you some recent pictures, I never got around to posting the pictures of Terri's quilts before I left.

First, this gorgeous Asian inspired stack n whack quilt.


I used an older panto called Autumn Whirl. 


Terri designed this gorgeous quilt. 
She even dyed some of the fabrics to get the perfect match.


We kept the quilting simple; I did circles inside the circles and some water stitching in the backgrounds.


The quilting just pops on the backing.


And this lovely modern quilt.

Add caption
I quilted it with one of my recent favorites, Wanderers.


Looking forward to what Terri comes up with next.

Time Crunch

Dave and I leave tomorrow and I still need to finish this lovely custom quilt.


And I have to pack. And stop the mail. And finish giving the house sitter instructions. And I'm sure I am forgetting something!

Here and There

How absolutely stunning is this quilt by Allan?


Allan bought the kit at A Great Notion; the fabrics are beautiful.

I quilted the panto Paisley Max on all the quilt except for the appliqued block.


For the applique block, I did a tight stipple around the shapes.


I love these fabrics.


Now it's back to work. Dave and I are leaving on a holiday next week and I am running out of work days!

Wait Lists and Sick Days

Just before Easter I came down with a stomach bug. After a few unpleasant days, I was feeling better and able to enjoy the Easter weekend but didn't get as much quilting done as I had planned. I did get this long ago finished quilt top quilted for myself.


I used my board Wanders; it gives such a neat effect.


I had hoped to get the binding on but now that is going to have to wait. Along with something new I am working on.


And now for the wait list. We are currently booking client quilts into July/August. But don't panic; we do have a few spots we have saved for those who have wedding or grad quilts that need done before than.

If you have a quilt that you would like to have quilted before July or August, please call us at the studio(604 794 5955) and make an appointment to bring the quilt in. You will than have a spot reserved for you whether or not your quilt is currently finished. 

Any questions, please call(or email! quiltedcats@shaw.ca). We will work with you to make your quilt a finished quilt.

Mustaches

I posted about this quilt last fall but I had sent it to my son before I had taken some pictures.


Look at that, no snow in Calgary!

This quilt was so fun to do. I used 2 layer cakes and just randomly put the mustaches on.


I quilted it with Loop the Loop and used a great minkee as the backing.


I also quilted this lovely quilt for Dianna.


Dianna chose the panto Erin. It is such a great pattern and need to use it more often.

Christmas time

We've been getting quite a few Christmas quilts in lately. Either quilts that weren't finished for Christmas last year or kits that were given for gifts and quickly made up.

Lynn made this lovely quilt.


Isn't it pretty?


A tight stipple around the appliques and a swirly pattern in the quilt body. Perfect to let the piecing shine.


I'm looking forward to the weekend; I have a few projects of my own I am hoping to wrap up and show you next week.
Happy weekend!

Fireworks

I love this quilt by Angela. It is the Fireworks pattern from Thimbleblossom.


The blocks are nice and big; similar to the Swoon quilts.


I also finished this lovely batik quilt for Carol.
I think I need to add this to my ever growing, quilts to make list.


So many quilts, so little time.
