I'm finally feeling better

But that flu just knocked me off my feet.
I did manage to get a few things finished for myself; I'll post those in a few days. 

I also quilted up this quick panel for Carol.

I used a new pantograph called Loop the loop.
It's such a cute one.

And this one for Nadia. Forgive me for the horrible picture.

We kept the quilting simple and went with Floral Meander. I wish I had taken more pictures; it really is a striking quilt. 

Until next time.

I'm sick

So not much quilting going on. I have been working on the quilt for my son; lots of mustaches to finish buttonholing.

And I got this embroidery finished up.

I just might have enough energy this afternoon to finish up some binding.

Store Samples

Here's a few quilts that I recently quilted for Hamels Quilt Store.

A cute Canadian themed quilt.

This lovely quilt. I might have to buy this kit.

I just had to quilt it with feathers.

And a similar colour theme for this next one.

This one I quilted with Daisy#3.

Pretty, pretty!

Short and Sweet

It's been a busy week in the studio this week. I have managed to get this cute quilt quilt done for Joyce.

And this one for Carol.

Both were quilted with Flowing Feathers.

Now I'm off to spend the day training a friend on her longarm machine. Enjoy your day!

Road Races

Have you made a jelly roll road race quilt? They are such fun and quick quilts to put together. Recently I quilted two for Linda.

Such a striking quilt.

This one was quilted with Linna's Charm.

Linda's second quilt,

To stay with the quilts tropical theme, we went with the pattern Luau.

Have a great day!

A long awaited finish

When my son and daughter in law were here last week, I finally got to give Erica the quilt I made for her for her parents.

Such lovely fabrics. With the toile that Erica picked out, I knew that an Irish Chain quilt was the perfect choice.

I went with the pantograph Erin to go with the softness of the fabrics.

Next up? Erica fell in love with a quilt that Rhonda had just finished. So a quick trip to the fabric store and we came home with these

I promised her the quilt by Christmas. Stay tuned!

Back to Work

Had a lovely week visiting with my son and daughter in law from Calgary. They went home yesterday and I got back to work.

First up, this lovely quilt by Jackie.
We kept the quilting simple with a meander.

And by Sharon

We went with Swirls to soften up the lines.

Open House

A huge thank you to all that came out on Saturday for our studio open house. It was a fantastic day and the turn out more than we expected. We were so busy we didn't even get a chance to take many pictures.

Some of you may have noticed a few changes outside when you came. I decided the weekend before that our yard needed some sprucing up. Our lovely huge hydrangeas become diseased and within 2 weeks went almost completely black. They didn't bloom all summer; I thought it was as a result of the crazy heat we were having.

It was time to call a professional lol.

The hydrangeas were pulled out with a backhoe(I should have gotten a picture of the root balls!) and some new shrubs and plants were added.

A HUGE thank you to Hanson's Landscaping who went above and beyond in finishing what I started. It looks spectacular.
