Working on a quilt I made for a customer
out of some orphan blocks she found 
in her mother's house.


Only had a few blocks that her mother had made.
The tone on tone fabric makes it really hard to 
take pictures.



Making progress.


but a lot of work left.

a finish

This quilt was on the frame way too long.
I had the after Christmas blues, my son got sick
 and then myself.
We are all better and I am
finishing up a few quilts.

Remember this one? It is now finished.
I still need to trim and bind it.
This is a customer quilt made for her DIL.

I think it turned out great.  Love the colors.


Even though this one took a while, 
not actual quilting, but life moments.

When trying to come up with the quilting design
I kept seeing circles, but the customer wanted
leaves. I didn't see leaves.  I wanted to make her happy
so I incorporated leaves, small leaves, but leaves.


This is the next one going on the frame.
Another customer quilt.  This one is made from 
blocks she found while cleaning out her mother's house.
Sort of a memory quilt. I had a limited number of blocks
 to make three quilts, so there is a lot 
of open space.


Will post as I am quilting.
Trying not to neglect my blog this year,
not off to a great start since this is Feb.,
but will try harder.
Thanks for visiting.

Christmas quilts

After last year I said I would never accept quilts and be rushed at 
Christmas again.  Well.....guess what??
Yes I did it again this year.  
It started out pretty simple.  A lady contacted me to quilt a king size
quilt, the first quilt she has ever made, for a Christmas gift for her daughter.
These were the only picture I took.


Doesn't show very much but it was a beautiful quilt and for a first quilt she did a great job.
By the time I had this one finished she had 3 more quilts made and wanted them quilted for Christmas. I said I would try and I did but didn't get all of them finished.

This is her second quilt she made for another daughter.


Both were beautiful quilts.  I did not take any pictures of her third and  still have one more to go.
I had better get up and get busy.
