Never Say Never......

Surprise!  I feel like that anyway, surprising myself that I'm taking a moment to post something quickly this morning before getting back to frosting.  It has been hit and miss for me with reading so many blogger friends and then I've been terrible about leaving comments.  I'm not alone; I see that my old blog post are still getting many views and few comments.  I'm a wee bit better at posting a few quick pictures here and there on Instagram.

I'm so thankful that quilts are coming in like crazy.  It must be that time of year with weddings, graduations and baby showers.  Not only that, the weather has turned nice and all those "piecers" have mailed the tops to me and headed out to their gardens. *wink*  Ok...my theory anyway.

Never say never.  I made an exception for this quilt top from Sue.  Actually, Sue didn't care if it was edge to edge work or custom as she just wanted it quilted; one less flimsy in her stash of quilt tops.


I'm not one for wanting ribbons or having quilt police critique my work. 
 
 
The colors aren't the best.   I quilted this one last month  and I'm almost positive the day I was trying to get good pictures to show my quilting the back lighting (outdoors) was limited sunshine.

 
Sue got the pattern out of the Feb 2014 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting.  The name of this quilt is "Golden Opportunity" by Tammy Johnson of Joined At The Hip.


Now...back to work with me as I've got deadlines to meet and more quilts on the way!   May I Be Your Quilter?  (see tab on the right side of blog for info)

I'm guilty of always reading and hardly ever commenting. sometimes i'll look to make sure SOMEONE has commented and if they have a few comments i'll hold off from putting in my 2 cents.
As to your post. Not sure if light could have made this one any more lovely. I loved that pattern when it arrived so it's nice to see it made. The design for the quilting was just perfect.

Carol said...

I also read blogs and not always leave a comment but I should cause I like it when I get comments. I've been trying to post more often on my blog even though I don't think I get many visitors. As always, your quilting is awesome!

Nicole said...

Your quilting is gorgeous Mary. And Sue should be so proud of her lovely quilt. The colors she used are so pretty.

Cathy said...

Those open squares cried out for something special and your quilting is lovely! This quilt will be an heirloom.

Lori said...

That is so pretty! The quilting really is the frosting on the cake!

Needled Mom said...

That really came out beautifully. The colors are just wonderful.

.....best get out in my garden now!

Vroomans' Quilts said...

What a pretty quilt pattern and the frosting is just wonderful.

AnnieO said...

Love it when you post, Mary! Especially when frosting is included:). Lovely, lovely.

Lynn said...

What a stunning quilt! Both piecing and the quilting! I think Instagram is perfect for between blog posts. It means less pressure to blog. It's a beautiful day out I hope that you and Bailey get some fun time outside today!

Lesley said...

What a beautiful quilt! You have frosted it to perfection! And no gardening here yet...the snow is still around!

Janet O. said...

That quilt was crying out for a beautiful custom job like this, Mary. Good of you to make the exception. It is simple lovely!

Karen said...

I don't know how you come up with the quilting designs to use for a quilt but you choose well.

Sinta Renee said...

It's gorgeous! Beautiful work once again Mary!

I miss you on your blog... and I myself haven't been keeping up well on mine either.

Gloria said...

The quilting and quilt looks great! I read blogs but don't always leave comments. Need to improve in that area.

moosecraft said...

Oh this quilt is a beauty (including the frosting)!!! You really have an eye for just the right touch!

Leeanne said...

Custom quilting was the way to go! Looks fabulous! I seem to have the same on my blog, but then I figure some folks are just lookers..........still the comments keep us going and feel good. Quilts rolling here too, but we are heading into winter here in NZ, so I'm not sure about your theory?

Eppie Doodle said...

You do beautiful work, Mary. I love the design you used to quilt this quilt. The person who made the quilt did a wonderful job choosing the pattern and fabrics.

Take care.
Emily

Jackie said...

Beautiful frosting Mary! Your quilting really complements the piecing.

Sharon said...

Fabulous!!!!

QuiltSue said...

I must admit that at the moment I am a sometimes reader and an almost never commenter. I'm not sure where the time is going, but it seems to be whizzing past at the moment and I keep finding that I have 200 or so post to read!

Jeanna said...

Sue did some lovely piecing and, as usual, your frosting is just gorgeous.

Carrie P. said...

It is a beautiful quilt and your quilting is perfect for those blank squares.

Jobi Kocher said...

Hey Mary! Love the custom quilting you did! Someday I'm going to send you one for custom quilting. Thank you for the perfect baby quilt frosting! I will post it after the baby shower. Hugs!!

Valerie Z said...

A beautiful quilt for sure! Gorgeous quilting! I don't have Instagram so reading blogs is how I follow along with everyone being inspired by what they/you are showing and sharing. Some blogs are more difficult to comment on than others but I do enjoy following along. Perhaps I should check out Instagram and see what its all about! Thank you for sharing and show and tell!

suz said...

what a lovely quilt to work with and what beautiful quilting! Sue must be delighted!
