Earlier this week

We had a photographer come by the studio to take some pictures for our website upgrade.

I had Denise's quilt on my machine when Shelia snapped this photo; so much better then the ones we took.

And the finished quilt,

quilted with Halcyon

One for me

In between trips to Calgary to visit my son/daughter in law. Trips to the interior of BC to see some of Dave's clients and fun weekends full of visiting friends, I managed to finally make myself a new quilt for our bed. I can not remember the last time I made a bed quilt for us; it's been way too long.

I bought 3 jelly rolls, a layer cake and some yardage of Grace from 1 Choice for Quilting and made this,

I sewed the strips into rail fence blocks and alternated them with a layer cake square. Hmmm, maybe I should have made the bed better before I took the picture.

Quilted with the panto Tendril.

And with some of the jelly roll leftovers, I made a few runners. One for my dresser,

and for each of our night tables.

Now I'm going to spend the rest of the afternoon working on a new little something.
