Circles

Finally finished Edna's lovely circle quilt.


I used my Circle Lord Circle Thingy and quilted circles in the circles. I than quilted a waterstitch in the background.


Edna left the circles raw-edged so they will fray up nicely when she washes it.

I also got a cute kids quilt for Hamels quilted as well.

quilted with Laurie
I even got some quilting time of my own on the weekend. I hope to finish up the binding today and I'll show that soon.

I have a feeling

That this may take awhile.


I'll keep you posted.

Graduation

My oldest grandson graduated this year from high school. Rhonda and I decided to make a quilt for a friend of his for graduation. 

Rhonda picked up a fat quarter stack, we picked a Saturday and started sewing.


Quickly we ended up with this.


I quilted the quilt with swirls.


We backed the quilt with some Simply Color and I  love how the quilting shows up.

We have a small

Fair that is here the first weekend of August. Lots of animals to see, flowers and veggies. Chuckwagon races and fair food. Imagine my surprise when I went to look at the quilts and saw this


One of my clients had entered her quilt in the fair and won third place!

Here's the quilt


Dale(the name on the fair tag was wrong. My first name and Dale's last) picked a Baptist Fan pattern for the quilting.


The curves in the quilting really soften the points of the piecing. And I love the backing Dale went with


Congrats again Dale!

Remember Me?

I can't believe it's been so many months since I last blogged. We had a busy summer and time just got away from me.

I've kept busy with embroidery


Playing with a Twister ruler


And lots of longarm quilting.


I need to get you all caught up!
