Two Weeks In A Row….

I’m on a roll by posting pictures on my blog, two weeks in a row.

As promised, here are some of the modern quilts that I quilted for Figo, for

Quilt Con, several weeks ago.I think this quilt is called Paper Cuts byThen

Came June.

The backing was very bright; you can see the stitching really well.

I used a monofilament thread on the top and matching thread for the


Christina made  this quilt in the summer; she wanted lots of

straight line quilting. There are two separate blocks in this quilt so

I decided to quilt two separate designs in the blocks.

Straight lines were quilted across all of the background fabric.

Once again, a monofilament thread was used for the top of the

quilt and a matching thread for the backing.

The backing fabric was interesting.


This quilt is called Stellar Mosiacs. Not quite sure who designed it,

sorry, I forgot to write down the designer.

The quilting design used is Mosiac  Circle Star by Urban Elementz.

The backing of the fabric, I love the blue fabric used here.

Angie’s Quilt

Angie made this quilt for a special someone. She wanted swirls quilted

all over the quilt top. I used a white Omni polyester thread for the top

and the backing.

The backing of the fabric shows off the quilting beautifully.

Joyce made this huge quilt. It measured in at 107 x 104. I think that

it’s the biggest quilt that I have quilted.

I quilted an overall design called “Water  World” by Willow Leaf STudio.

I am still working on my daughter’s quilt, by Elizabeth Hartman.

It is called “Desert Delights.”  It is sewing up quickly but it doesn’t help that

I keep making silly mistakes.

Have a good week.


I’m back!

My family and I went on a much needed vacation.  It’s been 4 years since we

last went on one.  It is amazing how much you think you don’t need a vacation,

then when you are away, you realize how much you did need it.

I am back and off to the races!

Holly began quilting last year and, to guesstimate, she has made 5 quilts

thus far.  Not bad for a beginner.  She has help from Carol  and together

they make quite a team.

On Monday, Holly called and dropped off some quilts.  She needed 2 by


This one is for someone special who loves John Deere tractors.  It is quite cute.

I think that he will love this quilt.

We decided that it needed a circular design, so we went with

“Flirtatous.”  Lots of swirls and circles to give the quilt top movement.

Even the back of the quilt has John Deere all over it.

This second quilt was made by Carol and given to Holly.

What a gift!

We decided to go with another circular design, to add movement to

the quilt pattern.  This time, we chose “Quirky.”  It is one of my favorite

pantos, from Willow Leaf Studio. I think it looks great!

Tomorrow, I am working on 2 pillow shams.  Hoping to have all 3 done and

out the door by Friday.

I am hoping to continue with the fabric painting and am looking forward to

Mickey Lawler being on The Quilt Show, this week.  She paints alot of fabric

and I am hoping  to learn  lots from her.

Until next time,

Happy Quilting.
