Got to Love It!

 Carol whipped up this sweet sailboat quilt for her summer decor and asked for quilted wave swirls edge to edge.  We both really liked the design but then it seemed the boats were more "in the air."
Look at what Carol did!  It takes quilting to a whole new level!  I love how she followed some of the quilting with some pearl cotton and a bigger stitch!  You can read and see more here at her blog.
 Daisy quilting is a new design to me!  This is just a peek of quilting I did for Nicole.  These daisies are just too cute not to share with you.  Holler at me if you want some daisy quilting too!  I'm really digging this design!  Information about quilting is found on the right side of my blog under the tab "May I Be Your Quilter?"
Progress at last!  The rains subsided long enough to get footings in and to actually see some progress being made.  Everytime we visit the house lot we have  huge grins on our faces.  You know the type of grinning that a school kid gets when they are allowed a bit more recess time?  That's us!
