Lost but not Forgotten

I  found a bunch of quilt pictures saved on my computer but I don't remember whose quilts they are. If you know whose quilts, let me know so I can credit the piecer.

Quilted with Happy Times


Love this next one.

Quilted with Bayside.


Some aren't the greatest pictures.

Quilted with Laurie.


This next one was pieced by Linda.

Baptist Fan was the perfect choice.


One of my favorites.
Quilted with Cycles.


Another favorite quilted with Swirls.


I must start taking better notes!

Fun in the sun

We are truly having a never ending summer. And what a better way to enjoy that than with this fun Hawaiian shirt quilt.


Isn't this a fun quilt? I love how Jeanne did this.


Of course we went with a surf theme with the quilting and I did Seaside on it.

Now it's time for me to get started on something very special.

A few more finishes

From this week.

This fun quilt by Jackie.


Jackie picked the pantograph Mozart.

Kaye made this lovely quilt.


Kaye chose Water as her pattern for quilting. I love how it doesn't overpower the quilt.


And for Sue


Sue picked Loopies; so fun!

Scrappy

Some of my favorite quilts are the scrappy ones. It's always fun to see how my clients use up their scraps.

Solange made this stunning Dresdan quilt using up all her Asian fabric scraps.


Good thing I took more than one picture as that one is so blurry.


Solange wanted minimal quilting so we went with a meander.

Shirley made a simple scrappy quilt.


Kept the quilting simple again and went with my Water Circle Lord board.

And for Jeanne


More simple quilting, this time with Surf's Up.


Maybe I should start using some of my scraps.

I started

My first Christmas present.


I haven't decided yet if I'll make it into a pillow or a small quilt.

I also quilted this wedding quilt for Linda.


Guests wrote messages on blocks and Linda made the quilt for her daughter.


Had to quilt the quilt with Folk Heart. Perfect choice for a country wedding quilt.

Something for me

Took some time and sewed up a little something for myself.


It was a very easy pattern; some mindless sewing was just what I needed.


I also finished this quilt for Salli. I used my Circle Lord board Swirls.


And a custom for Salli as well.


I water stitched in the background and did circles in the circles.


And more circles in the borders.

It's been a rough few weeks

My sweet Truffles had to be put down a few weeks ago. She had always had health issues; she was only 6yrs old but this time we decided the best thing was to let her go. Broke my heart as I held her as she slipped away.

And the next day Dave surprised me with this


Puccino(short for Cappuccino) is 10 weeks old and has fit right into our household like he's always been there.
