Way TOO Fast Weekend...

Wow, the weekend went by way too fast! I hope that you all had a wonderful day/weekend with your "Father's" -- the important men in your lives. Sunday we enjoyed a calm, non-eventful, stress-free day. We celebrated Father's Day with an awesome venison dinner with fresh stick break... ummm (bread is such a no-no on my diet, but it was Father's Day and it was delicious!) Then we took a drive to the island for a nice walk on the beach. Bathtub Reef had just reopened on Memorial Day after a multiple-year closing due to the damage is sustained in the hurricanes back in 2004, so that was our choice for a fantastic family walk. Here are just few pictures of our adventure -- we truly missed this beach while it was closed and are super happy it has reopened!

Floral Fun

Here is yet another quilt belonging to Mary... wow, she has been a busy lady! I had a blast with this one... for those that know me well you know what this means... and for those that don't -- it means I quilted freehand feathers and in all over background fill -- FUN, FUN, FUN!!! One of my most favorite things to quilt -- no rules, no lines, loads of space! I could go on but here's the end result:

Blakeley's Quilt

Here is Blakeley's quilt... Mary did the piecing on this little cutie. Mary states that Blakeley is quite the little "prepster" and these plaids will suit him to a tee.
I don't think any baby would be disappointed with this quilt -- prepster or not!
I just love how the lettering turned out on the plaids -- wasn't super sure it would show up as well as it did!
Now just hoping that Blakeley likes it!!!

Spent all of yesterday quilting away on Merry's Sunflower Embroidery Quilt -- I just love this quilt! There is loads of stuff going on in this quilt -- mainly FUN, but also applique, embroidery, decorative stitches.

This quilt just screams "happy" doesn't it? I'm hoping Merry likes it as much as I do!!

Bunny Love...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this quilt! This absolutely adorable Wool Bunnies quilt belongs to Jan -- it is hand applique wool on wool with wool and mole-skin sashings. WOW, pictures do not do it justice at all -- you have to feel the textures of this quilt - amazing. And not to mention, just how cute all these bunnies are!!! I do remember Jan had a book of bunnies when she dropped the quilt off but can't for the life of me remember the name of the book! Don't worry, I'll find out next time Jan and I speak, which should be fairly soon -- she's got a couple of more quilts on the schedule.

Anyway, here are some detail shots of just a few of the bunnies -- would love to post them all here, but that would be too much. You can check out my facebook page and look at the album called Jan's Wool Bunnies for each and every block of the quilt!

This quilt was loads of fun and hopefully Jan will love it as much as I do!!!

PS 6/21/10): Just got the name of the pattern/book from Jan -- it is "Grandma's Bunnies" by Darcy Ashton. Thanks so much Jan!! So happy you are enjoying the bunnies!!

Black and White and Fantastic...

Here is Sally's Black and White Sampler. This was a Saturday Sampler class from the JaM Patch. This is an AWESOME quilt, I absolutely LOVE all the fabrics and the blocks are some great choices.

Here's the a close-up of the center medallion -- lots of open space for quilting... gotta love it! I had loads of fun with this quilt!!

And my most favorite part of the quilt -- the back! Yes, it is the machine quilter in me, but I love to see all the stitches -- it looks almost like a wholecloth!
