Being selfish and enjoying it.

This quilt belongs to Judi from Farm Lane Studio.  She has several cute quilts that I am finishing for her. This one is of blocks surrounded by sashing.  Judi decided that she would like some movement so we went with “Kelsey” due to its circular nature. I think I rather like it. What about you?

Aren’t you proud of me?  I remembered to include some close up photos as well.

Jeanette also had a quilt that needed to be finished for her granddaughter. It is so cute!  It has tons of butterflies in the fabrics so we chose a pantograph that had butterflies all throughout it.  A variegated thread was also used and I think that it turned out beautifully.

Jeanette was so pleased and thus I was pleased.  I even managed to take a shot of the back of the quilt.  The variegated thread makes the back look like a whole new quilt, one in which you can use,  if you get tired of the front.  Two for the price of one. Now, that is a great deal!

Besides all this, I am trying to carve out some time for my own personal quilting. It seems to have taken a back seat but I am about three quarters through piecing a top and I really want to get it done before school is out.  There is a local quilt show coming up in September and it seems I am always rushing to complete something for it.  So, I am being selfish and enjoying it. Hope you have a good week. Keep stitching, Ruth
