Liz - Miyako Quilt

Isn't this quilt a beauty?!!
Early Thanksgiving morning I finished this beautiful Miyako Quilt (Jinny Beyer pattern) for Liz.  I would have been finished a few days earlier, but hubby required my assistance while finishing our last room of tile!  Of course, I shared everything about the quilt - the design process, how using the fabric helps in quilting, sharing some continuous paths for background quilting within pieced blocks, and how/why I did the quilting - on my Quilty Know-How Facebook Group (subscription required - its quite affordable, at $5/month paid yearly, and jammed packed with information.

It was quite windy outside so this is the calmest photo I could manage.  Yep, the boards are still buried but once again my son was super helpful (and tall).  I just love the colors -- those stars really pop right off the quilt!

And a couple detail photos:

A few finishes...

Wow, where has November gone?  I blinked and it's already the 20th!  I started the month off teaching at Houston - which is always a blast.  My classes went great and I met a bunch of super enthusiastic students.  Then it was back to work.

I used the Elevate to stitch up this beautiful baby quilt for Kris.  The pattern is Fox Among the Birches by Sew Fresh Quilts.  The digital design I used is called foxye2e by Stitch Happy/TJ Speiser.  I think I need this quilt in my life... like perhaps king size (but that is another day... year?).

Then I squeezed in an all-over meander for Jan on this baseball jersey/t-shirt quilt.  Just enough to hold it all together for many years of love!

And then another beauty for Kris.  This one is Showering Stars by Robin Pickens.  And don't mind the outdoors photo... we're back to finishing the tile in the house and my quilt photo boards are buried behind many things... you'll have to settle for my son holding this beauty up:

And a peek at the back!

That's it for this post... more soon!
