I hope everyone had a great week and you are enjoying this rainy and windy weather here in Southwestern Ontario!
To wile away the time this week and I am laughing at this..... I was able to complete and square a quilt for a customer, teach a little, guide a little, make some items for an upcoming craft show, bake a little, visit with family and friends at the St Jacob's market and finish a quilt challenge mini quilt.
The only thing, I could not fit in was exercise and some pattern designs. I will hope for better luck next week in these departments!
It was a great time despite the crazy weather to get to work. I'm sharing some pics below of my projects this week except the Challenge Quilt as I cannot show it to you until January..so please stay tuned on that one.
Have a great weekend, Happy Halloween and please don't eat too much of the sweet stuff, you are already sweet enough!!
TGIF stands for "Thank God Its Finished" I am finished with:
Well the answer to this is I am helping my niece Ashley out with a craft sale in November - all of these items (with the exception of the quilt) are Quiltingintheloft original designs. Therefore, once I get the patterns completed, they will be available in the shop section, some free patterns and some at an affordable price.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and.......
Happy Canadian Thanks Giving !!
I have 3 nieces expecting babies, we all go through phases in life . . . raising kids, attending birthday parties, weddings, showers etc. For me its babies, babies and more babies--Bring it on! I love these little bundles of joy, they bring so much life to our families. So below is # 1 Quilt for Benjamin- son of Laura and Stephen- the quilt says it all. I have 2 more baby quilts on the go and I am so sure they will not be my last ones. Stay tuned for more pics. It is my own original design- no pattern needed- the letters are strip pieced and appliquéd and the quilt was quilted on my long arm with a generous meander pattern
The completed quilt!
Thread painting on a long arm? Who Knew?
This sunflower is appliquéd at this point on a strip pieced quilt that was constructed from a jelly roll, I then thread painted and quilted it as you go on my long arm- such fun! I named it Having a Heat Wave as the colours are hot and Sunflowers grow in the hottest part of the year here at least.
See more pics below
Its been a while as Spring has finally arrived!!
I've been busy gardening (which means cleaning flower beds and planting annuals for me) I love colour!! On April 27, 2015, I showed my quilts and " My Quilting Journey" in a Trunk Show at Elmira Needle Sisters- a lovely bunch of ladies! Happy to pay it forward!!!
The above post is one of my recent quilts, It is an made from an Indigo Jelly Roll with fused, appliquéd flowers and is called -Warm and Indigo - stay tuned for more and more. I also recently attended a workshop with Laura Wasilowski from "The Chicago School of Fusing" from which I am now a graduate! Ha, Ha!! I will post this quilt as soon as my hand stitchery is completed.
Complete with trapunto snow flakes between each 8 pointed star block, machine and hand embroidered snowflakes and buttons on the border and sequins on the snowflakes. BRRR its cold outside.
The Project i spoke about before "Snowy" is on hold because of a malfunction with my embroidery machine (to be serviced) so - - -there is no such thing as no project on the go for me and therefore the my quilt "Berries and Cream" is on my long arm frame- more pictures to share as I progress! Not to worry, I will share "Snowy" again when I can finish my embroidered snow flakes.
