Judy's "Sherman's March" Quit

I absolutely love the look of this quilt!

This is Judy's second (of four) quilts that I'm working on for her.  To me, this one is quite timeless, the blacks, beige, and pop of burgundy - love it!  The pattern is called Sherman's March, here is a link to the Red Crinoline website.

Here are a couple of other pics - the side light this afternoon was perfect!

I have a project for an upcoming article to work on tomorrow, and working on more class stuff for my upcoming teaching gigs (info on my website), but Judy's third quilt will be started over the weekend, make sure you watch for it here as well as the CLQ facebook page!

Weathered Windmill

Quiltworx is about to debut a new patterned called Weathered Windmill -- it is absolutely beautiful.  I was lucky enough to get to quilt the sample which is done in their new fabric line, Reclaimed West. Yes, I have permission to share, so here goes:

Isn't is awesome?!!  Here are some detail pics during the quilting process:

I've recently started killing all my scissors...

And, of course, some pictures of the back:

It is an amazing quilt.  If you happen to be at Fall Quilt Market make sure you swing by the Quiltworx booth and check it out!

Lorraine's Brilliant Beauties of Joy

Last week I started on Lorraine's Brilliant Beauties of Joy quilt (pattern by Jacqueline de Jonge/BeColourful).  What a fun quilt - I won't bore you with words, instead here are some pics:

Oh, and the back of this awesome quilt is an amazing ice dye by Sondra/She's Got Mojo:

So I mentioned I started it last week... yep, a couple of detours.  One of which is my old Gammill had to go in for repairs so that big plan I had on catching up... yeah, well, not this month!  Instead of using two machines, I'm down to one for a few weeks.  Here's a picture of Richard (Pat's Calico Cottage) prepping old Gam for her road trip for some maintenance and new parts:

Up next are two beautiful quilts for Chris - stay tuned!
