Christmas Rush

The final countdown is on for Christmas. Hard to believe that December is just around the corner. I still don't have my Christmas decorating done!

With purchasing Bliss, I discovered that my Circle Lord boards are a bit trickier to use. My machine now sits higher on it's table so I've had to raise the boards.

I quilted this lovely quilt for Marie using the Bubbles boards.

I love the contrast of the quilting on the quilt pattern.

Onto the next one!

I'm here, I'm here!

I've been selling APQS machine's left, right and center lately it seems. So much so that I have rarely been quilting but I do have some goodies to show you.

I quilted again for Barb of CoachHouse Designs for Fall Market.

quilted with Swirl

I love this fabric by Deb Strain.

Another quilt featuring the same fabric line.

quilted with Square Spiral

I love the sun on the quilt.

The next quilt was custom quilted.

I love the birds.

And this one

Quilted with Daisy

Pretty, pretty, pretty.

Beautiful batik butterflies.

Quilted with Angel Wings
Sadly, there will be no more quilting for  Barb. In the middle of finishing her quilting for market, I sold her a longarm machine!

Between our trip to Hawaii and MQX in Portland and our trip last week to Calgary; I ordered Bliss for my Millie.

I haven't had a lot of time to play with it but so far, I love it!

New carriage means learning curve.

A B-I-G learning curve. I'll admit to struggling right through my first quilt on the machine. Good thing it was a charity quilt.

For some reason I can't access my blog; maybe it's because it has been so long since I've blogged? Anyway, I've sent this post to Rhonda so she can blog it for me.

Dave and I have been in Calgary for the week. I had some APQS service calls to make and we wanted a visit with our son/daughter in law. 

When we drove it, we had lovely weather; no snow, beautiful sun. And now as we get ready to drive home on Monday we have this...

Hopefully we will have a safe trip and I'll get caught up on my blogging when I get home.
