Rosamond's Snowman Collector

You guys.... I totally forgot to take and post pics yesterday.  Apparently, my desire for a nap totally outweighed blogging about quilt photos -- sorry!

And of course, today is dismal and rainy so it'll be indoor (awful lighting) pics.

Here is a couple from when it was still on the frame being quilted:

And a few more block pics:

And a couple peeks at the back:

So the pattern is called Snowman Collector, but unfortunately I don't know the pattern designer - if anyone does, please feel free to comment, thanks!

Next week I'll be working on Rosamond's other quilt, it's a beauty, can't wait!

Cindi's Circle of Life Quilt

I finished Cindi's Circle of Life Quilt (pattern by Jacqueline de Jonge/Be Colourful Quilts) late last night.  I had to wait until today to get some good photos.  Of course, the sun was way too bright and the yellow got a little washed out, but still a beautiful quilt:

Here's a peek at the back (Cindi used a sateen for the back and it just shimmers):

Silvia's Bright Lights Big City Quilt

To say my schedule is a madhouse would be an understatement... seriously.

This week was supposed to be a studio shutdown, but unfortunately, it did not happen.  Due to the last quilt staying on the frame a wee too long, and then the multiple migraines I suffered, I totally pushed Silvia's quilt until mid-January.  Whoops... yep, insert big whoops here.  Silvia needed her quilt back by mid-January.  No studio shutdown this week.

So I rushed a little and managed to get Silvia's quilt finished.  The pattern is Bright Lights Big City by Victoria Findlay Wolfe, and you can find it in her book Double Wedding Rings, Traditions Made Modern.  So here it is:

And a couple of close ups:

And, the back - it was a chunky-pieced back, but you can see the pattern pretty well in this pic:

So that's it for now... more soon!

Patty's Borrowed Roses

Here is Patty's Borrowed Roses quilt all finished - and isn't it a beauty?!!

The pattern is Borrowed Roses by Sue Garman and Patty chose some awesome bright fabrics for her version.  Here is a detail pic:

And here is a partial view of the back:

I started this beautiful quilt a little over two weeks ago.  It started with hours and hours of ditch work around all those applique pieces.  Then I had a couple of migraine delays.  Then Christmas snuck up and stole a few days from me.  And then I finally got back to stitching!

Here are a few pics while it was on the frame:
