A Grand Finish!

Mary Lou's quilt is now quilted. The lighting isn't the best for trying to capture my quilting so I posted several different views of her quilt for your enjoyment. I do hope you enjoy!

I amazed myself with the quilting I did on this one and absolutely LOVE IT!

Quilting for Mary Lou

When I quilt and can see texture forming on a gorgeous top it just makes me happy. I've been quilting on this beauty for a few days now and with Mary Lou's permission am sharing a photo. This quilt is so me and matches everything in my house! Unfortunately, Mary Lou knows where I live.

Laurel's Batik Beauty

I thought you would enjoy seeing this colorful batik beauty. One thing I do love about quilting is seeing the texture a motif gives the top. This one is no exception! Quilted with Deb's Feathers.

This was a big quilt top and this was the best I could take a photo and I'm standing on the couch.

Quilt Finish Revealed and Give Away!!

The last few days have been spent custom quilting a beauty of a quilt! I've teased long enough and now must share with you.

This quilt belongs to Marcie Patch aka Patchalot Patterns! When I shared with Marcie that I could quilt this feather star motif on one of her quilts she quickly whipped up this top with the nice big cheddar squares.
Oh gosh if only you could see this one up close and personal! It is a true beauty. If you get a chance to get to Spring Quilt Market in Salt Lake City, Utah be sure to stop in at Marcie's booth Patchalot Patterns and you will! (pattern coming soon!)

Now on to the giveaway! Marcie was kind enough to share with me a pattern called, "Dream Catcher." This quilt was also featured in McCalls Quilting Magazine, Sept/Oct 2010.

I love her new cover shot for the pattern! Don't you?
To win this pattern I'm asking that you will hop on over to Patchalot Patterns and stroll through her designs. Pick one or two that appeal to you the most and come on back here leaving a comment. It is that simple! You may want to pay close attention to her website because there are some FREE patterns too! Marcie also has a blog called, "Patchalot More."

I'm Back

Thought I'd quickly post that I'm back from my Atlanta longarmer convention. Here are just a few photos I'll share with you. This are not my quilts but samples shared by our instructors. The pink wholecloth was just adorable!

Sweet pebble quilting on this one.

One of my last classes I took was called, "Quilting is just not for quilts anymore." I listened to her lecture for the first hour and ditched the class to go back to a favorite instructor on something more useful to me personally. I did snap these photos first. I thought this tiny tote was cute and two sided. I have more photos but just not anything exciting.

Why I ditched the class; it was mostly about quilting/designing clothing. Her work was beautiful just not me.
Today has been spent playing catch up with the house, laundry, grocery and emails. I received some quilts while gone and have those to catch up on that were here when I left. I can't wait to fire up Gam tomorrow.
I've missed you.
