Holidays

Sorry about the disappearing act; we had put off a camping trip because of the funeral so we took off last week instead. 

When I last posted, I had mentioned finishing a quilt of my own but was waiting to get the binding finished before I showed it. Well, here it is.


Because of the colours, I couldn't decide how to quilt this so I kept it simple and went with straight lines.


I had used up all the green fabric in making the quilt and I was lucky enough to find some in the store to use as binding.


Now to find a spot to put it!

This week

Is one I wish was over. Last week my nephew passed away suddenly. He was only 15yrs old. The funeral is this Saturday and I have spent the past few days in what feels like a daze.

I have found that quilting is keeping me sidetracked; I even got something of my own finished. Once I get the binding done, I'll show that. But first, this lovely quilt by Victoria.


Veronica requested the pattern Petaluma;  a perfect compliment to the softness of the quilt.

Pastel Beauty

Laurel made this lovely quilt.


It was quite large and difficult for me to get a good picture.

The fabrics just begged to be feathered so I went with Bountiful Feathers for the quilting.
Doesn't the quilting look fabulous on the backing?


So lovely.


Thank you for entrusting me with your quilt Laurel!

Quiltie Finishes

I finally got a quilt for myself finished. I can't even remember when I first bought this quilt kit and now it is finally finished for me to enjoy.


I went with a water-stitch for the quilting.
 I love how it works with the applique.


 I debated quilting some spines onto the umbrella but I like how it looks with no quilting.

A fun multi-print batik binding.


This just makes me happy!

Playtime

And something just for me!

How is it June already?

Thankfully things have slowed down in the studio. I'm planning on getting a few of my things done this month. I have quilt tops dating back years that have been waiting to get quilted.

Dina and Luciena did a Thangles block of the month quilt together.

Dina did her's in a Basic Gray line.


So pretty.
Because the quilt is smaller, we used a sashing panto for the quilting called Snapdragon.


Luciena's quilt was quilted with Double Plume.


So pretty.


I love how just changing fabrics can change the look of a quilt.

Secret sewing

Rhonda has been busy making 4 graduation quilts for next month. The deadline for 2 was moved up 3 weeks and with how busy we've been in the studio, she was running out of time. I offered to give her a hand with piecing one of the quilts. Dave was away fishing for the weekend so it gave me something to do.


Rhonda and I spent Sunday afternoon together and got another quilt finished and the third just needs borders. She may get them finished just in time.
