3rd week of July

My longarm quilting business is getting a great start!
Quilts completed this week...
This quilt top is made by my good friend Beckie. This is her Hawaiian quilt
All but one of the fabrics were purchased while she was visiting Hawaii.
She added the yellow batik in the center to complete her top.
Love her fabric choices and colors plus a wonderful block and pattern layout :0)
Beckie loves to use wool batting and I love the loft, it's fun to quilt on!
The quilting pattern is Tropical Garden by Designs by Deb. If you look real close you will see a Toucan bird! The flowers and leaves are perfect for the Hawaiian fabrics/theme.
I used Fantastico #5020, a variegated thread by Superior Threads.

These two quilts were finished for Sandra E...
both are quilts she made from a class with Goldie at Cathy's Sew and Vac/Honey Run Quilters.
This one is made with fabrics from Australia except the 'grout' fabric

Quilted with a design by Anne Bright ~ Sticky Buns
The swirl pattern in a cotton thread called Dogwood was understated and
added a nice texture to complement the fabric prints
and the second one made with batiks and black Kona for the grout
We chose a Dove pattern in black cotton thread.
This will be gifted to a church member, hence the stained glass and dove motifs

Annie's Star Quilt Guild is hosting an evening in September for local servicemen and women. We are busy making Quilts of Honor for the event. I donated my time and quilted two of them this week, this one also made by Sandy E, a guild member
 Quilted with an edge to edge panto of Stars in white thread

 This one was brought to me by Millie,
coordinator and volunteer for Community Service.
I quilted this one with a new panto I found at Sweet Dreams Quilt Studio,
designed by Kim Diamond. She sells a complete QOV bundle for $1.00! Sew nice! 

Millie dropped off one more when she picked up this one on Friday.
Note: these quilts are all being made thru our Community Service program, each of us donate our time and materials. There are several longarm quilters participating along with home machine quilters, piecers and binders all working on these wonderful quilts! My friends and longarmers, Esther of Threads on the Floor and Gail are also working on a few.

Also worked on valances.

It's heating up outside this weekend. We picked veggies this morning from our garden. Now off to work on my quilt projects, Lori and Randy's Medallion quilt and Grandmother's Choice and make tomato sauce! Check back later this weekend at Ramblin' Rows to see my progress :0)
Enjoy the weekend and take time to put in a few stitches! 
Thank you for visiting!
