Borders On

Borders are on .....  should have taken a pic of the pipping.   Made the outer border a little wider so I could scallop it.

        Now ready for the frame.....   Just need to come up with the final quilting design

Rose Bud

working on the challenge quilt Rose Bud

Center applique.....   Decided that I need to add one more bud and leaf to balance it out.     I should have paid attention to where I was gluing it down.   Will add the rest of the solid blocks and borders tomorrow.

Little Green Frog

Customers quilt from Missouri

Quilted semi custom, she didn't want it to heavy, as she will use this on her bed.    Used only one layer of 80/20 Hobbs batting

                                           So Fine for thread,  a light lime green and white

                        These are so cute that it made me laugh with each one that I quilted

Quilted with my Innova 22" with the lighting stitch,   this machine is such a great machine for stitching and control.

Love those faces

I want a quilt like this for thr garden room to go with my frog

                                                                 Of course the back

Spring Duet

Lots of feathers    edge to edge

Felt pretty good getting back in the groove of quilting

I like the gold in the black sashing

Used Jamie Wallen's rulers for the border,  super fast

I think Robert's mom will like it
