Working on a couple things

A large customer quilt. She does the most fantastic needle turn applique but her piecing is always off. It's appliqued maple leaves, large and super small log cabins and a cottage panel.
My sweet hubs has been telling the girls he works with that I am a quilter and some wanted to see my work. So I made up a flyer of things I have and he got an order for one I had already made and a Ladybug Picnic that I designed over a year ago for my first great granddaughter. All I have left to do on it is finish piecing the piano key border then quilt it.

Here is a close up of one of the large log cabin areas.

Here is another view of the quilt. This is just the second row.

And here is a pic of the Ladybug Picnic in progress. I love designing baby quilts. They can be so bright and fun.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. We have another storm coming in from Alaska so it's cold and windy.

Another UFO

Bites the dust. This is a Buzz Saw quilt that I just finished. It started out as a block exchange maybe 10 years ago on a longarm chat room that I belonged to. It was our first exchange and I won the blocks. All the blocks were put together just waiting for borders and quilting. I really like how it turned out.

Now onto a customer quilt then more UFO's. (unfinished objects)

I hope everyone has a great week.

Sentimental Valentine

Is finally finished......except for the binding. It has been 22 years in the making. The first one was quilted by hand and after a friend saw it just had to have it so I sold it to her for $3500. But I really wanted the quilt so I started on another one. Everything was done except for the last row needed the corner triangles and borders. I finished those a couple years ago and put the borders on last month and finally finished the quilting yesterday. It is very heavily quilted with a flannel backing so it is really heavy. The neutral blocks are all done the same way as the hand quilted one but this time I was able to do fancy feathers in the heart and birds.
It is for sale so if anyone is interested please feel free to email me or leave a message.
