Carol's French 101 (and a little MQS)

I've finished Carol's French 101 quilt and it is a super cute one!

And some close-up pics:

And  the back:

Now to squeeze in two light custom quilts for Judy before I leave for MQS.  Yes, MQS is two weeks away.   There's still some room in my classes -- check them out here.

Oh, and you won't want to miss the Audacious Auction this year.  As it is their 20th Anniversary, several of the teachers have gotten together and made blocks for a special auction piece.  Gina Perkes will be piecing all the blocks as well as quilting it -- it's going to be amazing!  You might not want to miss this!!

Here's my block:

And here's a peek at what Gina is doing with the blocks.  I can't wait to see this piece finished!!

Hope to see you at MQS!!

Leslie's Flower Garden

So back in mid-March, I was working on a super cute quilt for Leslie of Keystone Quilts. I wasn't able to share it as it was a quilt for her booth at the Manitoba Prairie Quilters Quilt Reflections show. If you follow along on Facebook, you might remember seeing this picture of her beautiful hand-dyed backing fabric.

I also shared this close-up pic -- you know me and sharing, I just can't help myself!

Well, lucky for all of you, the show was last weekend so now I can share the entire quilt!  The color is a little off in this picture -- I don't know, the camera (wouldn't be the first one I've killed), the sun (does strange things in the spring), I don't know... something?!!

And here are a bunch of close-ups:

And, of course, a peek at the back:

For those of you that might be curious, the pattern is Flower Garden by Schlosser Designs.

Kathryn's quilt

This morning I finished Kathryn's quilt - isn't it a beauty! I know the sun is a little too bright but you can see most of the designs. I couldn't wait for afternoon light as it needed to get to the post office today and they close early.

Carol's Le Jardin

And I managed to totally stay on schedule this week... well, kinda.  I try to take Fridays off, but since I lost that day earlier in the week to a storm, I worked tonight.  But I finished Carol's second quilt - it's another cute one!  The pattern is Le Jardin (again by Bunny Hill Designs).

Some detail pics:

And a couple pics of the back:

That's it for this week -- I might actually get some of my own stitching in over the weekend!
