Tere's Log Cabin

Tonight, after multiple storm delays, I finally managed to finish Tere's quilt.  It is the Spring Log Cabin (Kaffe Fassett) and it turned out super cute!

And a detail pic:

Large feathers in the pink areas and scrollies and squiggles in the yellow areas -- fun and cuteness! This gets shipped off to Tere tomorrow -- hope she likes it!

Next up is Jan's Tuxedo Cats.  It is all wool -- I can't wait!  Some of you might remember when Jan did the wool bunnies quilt, if not, check it out - it was one of my favorites - so much going on and such fun.  I have a feeling the Tuxedo Cats might just be another favorite!

Donna's quilt and some upcoming...

Yesterday I managed to finish Donna's scrappy quilt.  I'm not sure of the pattern, but it sure was a super cute one!

Some swirls, ribbon stitching, and squiggly piano keys - just what it needed!

Up next on the frame is a log cabin in Kaffe Fassett fabrics by Tere - thinking lots of feathers, ruler work,and maybe some swirls (you know how much I love them).

Then a wool kitty quilt by Jan.  For those that don't remember, Jan did a wool bunny quilt back in 2010 that was awesome.  If you get a chance, check it out here.  Can't wait to quilt this one!

Wendy's Red & White Quilt

I finally finished Wendy's red & white quilt!  I've had storm delays almost every day -- that's because it's the rainy season and my quilting hours just happen to fall during the storm times.  Either I'll adjust or I'll fall further behind -- I'm hoping to adjust!

The studio is such a mess right now, this is the best full-view picture I could manage:

And some detail:

And the back, of course, you know me and solid backs - fabulous!

What a beautiful quilt, hopefully Wendy will be pleased.

Sallie's beauties -

First we have an awesome quilt belonging to Sallie.  It is called Rainy Day (pattern by Laundry Basket Quilts/Edyta Sitar).  This turned out super cute, I love adding free-flowing feathers to just about anything!

And then Sallie had another Edyta Sitar pattern, Friendship Spools (it's from the Friendship Strips & Scraps book).  Again, a super cute quilt:

On this quilt I did a simple looping meander.  The background fabric Sallie chose (which looks like needles and pins) is great -- it is what I call a forgiving fabric.  It doesn't really show the quilting as well as other fabrics - it forgives any mistakes.  This is why I chose to keep it simple here - if you can't really see the quilting, why would you spend hours and charge more money to the client to create it?  Just one of those things I believe...

Anyway, two awesome quilts from an awesome client!
