Water, water everywhere

It's no secret that the Circle Lord board Water is my go-to pattern for quilts. Here is a collection of recent ones I have quilted it on.

This embroidery quilt for Hamels.

On this manly flannel quilt also for Hamels.

This lovely sample quilt by Ginger.

For Jeanne

Such a fun quilt Jeanne made.

For Rose

And lastly, a quilt of my own that I never blogged the finished product.

It's a fairly busy looking quilt and the water stitching is perfect on it.

I also found a ufo quilt; maybe I'll finish it this weekend.

Missouri Quilt Company

Has become my favorite go-to quilting website. I made this braid quilt using the binding tool following a tutorial I found on Missouri's website.

I quilted it with my favorite Circle Lord board Swirls.

I did this table runner for Delores.
I edited the picture so you can see the quilting better.

I used the panto Antique Lace and placed the panto so it went right down the middle of the runner than added in some quilting on the edges.

Another table runner, this time for Bonnie.

Just like Bonnie's runner, I ran the panto(Holly Ribbon) down the middle of the runner.

I love the backing on this; it could almost be reversible.

Today I'm finishing up another one of Delores' quilts.

Back at it

We've been home from Vancouver Island for a week and I jumped right back into work once we got home.
I did this beautiful quilt for Faye using Bountiful Feathers.

One of my favorite feather pantos.


For Bonnie

Bonnie is going to scallop the border of her quilt so I quilted morning glory in the quilt body and a feather in the border so she can echo the curve in the feather for the scallops.

And for Betty, quilted with wildflower.

I got a little something for myself finished while we were away; I'll show that to you next time.

The last two weeks

Have almost been a blur. March 18th, Dave ended up in the hospital. We learned that he had had 3 heart attacks. The next day, he had another. He was moved to a larger hospital where he had an angiogram done and 2 stents put into the main artery in his heart. And he was actually home the next day! 

Last week I spent it trying to keep him resting; that was harder than you would think lol. In between getting after Dave to rest, I did manage to get some client quilts done.

Jeanne made this quilt; I quilted it with the pantograph Tendril.

For Shawna, this lovely modern quilt.

I used the Circle Lord board Bubbles for this one.

Dave and I are off to Campbell River for a few days where hopefully we can both relax.  I started on a triple Irish Chain quilt for my daughter in laws parents that I am hoping to finish while we are there.
