Phoebe's Batik Circles...sorta





After all, they are not really circles, but the effect is definitely circular. This was another quilt where the quilt itself whispered what it wanted as far as a stitching pattern. I used Sew Fine on top and MagnaGlide in the bobbin.

Barbara G's French Braid






Wow! I just love working on Barbara's quilts--she is so particular and her quilt top is flat, and darn near perfectly pieced. She asked for bright color on the black and that's what she got. I used Lava on top and MagnaGlide in the bobbin--as usual, it was all done freehand.

Lace Projects

 

 

It took me forever it seemed to finally finish my bamboo scarf...and I love how it blocked! It is the softest yarn, heavenly against one's skin.

The lace shawl was knitted using a 100% rayon yarn, called Rick Rack, and hand dyed y Judy L. Ditmore. This one also blocked beautifully.

It's amazing just how much knitting one can get done when recuperating from a nasty sinus infection. Now that I've recovered, knitting again takes a backseat to quilting.

Viola L's Applique Sampler





At this time, I have two more of these in the hopper to quilt, including a second one from Viola. This sampler was a project from a local LQS. I used different fills throughout and tried to help the applique shine. I used Sew Fine on top and MagnaGlide in the bobbin.

Happy Anniversary!

 

 

 

 

Jasmine's parents' wedding anniversary is next week, and she has worked hard with her mentor, Eve, to create her first quilt--a special gift for her parents. I wanted to help make this a very special gift and so pulled out all the stops. I used Sew Fine on top and Glide in the bobbin.

Eve's 3,000+ pieces

 

 

 

 

Wow! I was amazed at how many little pieces went into the making of this quilt by Eve! Eve asked for a simple, all-over design and even with all those seams, the quilting process was a smooth as butter. Eve rocks! I used Sew Fine on top and Glide in the bobbin.
