The studio has been busy

As we are finishing up Christmas quilts. Here's a few of my recent finishes.

Jackie pieced this next one. She requested my board pattern, Egyptian Eye as it matched the fabric she used in the quilt.


It was the perfect pattern for this quilt.


For Delinda.


Delinda wanted a simple pattern so we went with Surf's Up.

It looked so pretty on the quilt.


Hilda does such fabulous embroidery work. Sadly I didn't get a picture of her entire quilt.


Sadly I did the same with Marg's quilt; no full quilt picture.


I've been longarming for almost 10yrs and this was the first time I had ever done this pantograph, Spin.


It's a great pattern; I'll have to make something for myself to quilt it on.

I've been working

On  a few Christmas things the past few days.

I made this runner probably 5 years ago. It may have been even longer than that. All I needed to do to finish it was the quilting.


I kept the quilting simple and went with a freehand swirling meander.


And some embroidery.


Can not wait to give this next one away at Christmas.



But first I have a little something to get quilted.

Modern Quilts

I've been seeing more and more modern quilts lately. Here are a few of them.

For Hamels Quilt Store


This fabric line is fantastic; the colours are so rich.
I quilted it with my Circle Lord Board Water but I changed it up so the quilting made a ribbon.


This lovely quilt was pieced by Penny.


And you guessed it; quilted with Water again.


The camera didn't pick up the vividness of the green; it's not nearly as yellow as in the picture.

And lastly this stunning quilt. Sadly I didn't write down who pieced this one.


As you can see, it's also quilted with Water.

I love this quilt, I might have to add one of these to my list to make for 2015!

Weekend Fun

I took some time for myself on the weekend and made a few runners for our bedroom.

For my dresser


And for each of our night tables. I used the leftovers from the runner for these.


Now to find some time to quilt them!

Winter is Coming

Jean brought in this quilt and wanted a winter pattern on it.


Winter White fit what Jean wanted.


I also finished a few more quilts off for Jaunita's family. Jaunita passed away earlier and her family requested that we complete the quilts that she had left unfinished.

This sampler was quilted with Winter White also.


Love this block.


Loopys for this simple quilt.



Jaunita's last quilt is a stunner.


I went with a simple meander; nothing to compete with the piecing.




Stunning.

Gail 1 and 2

I've been quilting for Gail for a few years now. She brought in this lovely floral quilt for me to complete for her.


Gail wanted to keep the quilting simple and not compete with the quilt so we went with my Circle Lord boards and the Baptist Fan.


When I had this one my machine, a new client came in. Another Gail. And this Gail fell in love with the Baptist Fan so she picked it for her striking plus quilt.


Such a great pattern to soften the lines of a quilt.

For Jean

This lovely version of a sampler quilt.


We kept the quilting simple with Linna's Charm.

I love the flying geese in the corners.


Simple and yet so stunning.

I finished up the charity quilts from my last post.

This first one is quilted with Laurie.


The other two I quilted with a new ribbon board I have from CircleLord.


Such a beautiful quilt. And I love the quilting!

I finally got my Twister quilt quilted.


I quilted it with my new favorite, Egyptian Eye.


Very happy to finally have it done so I can really enjoy it.

A two for one!
