Saturday Morning Post ~ Beckie and Claudia

On my frame this week ~ 
the Autumn Medallion Sampler for Peggy pictured in the previous post.
Birds for Beckie and something different for Claudia

Birds for Beckie

LOVE the fabrics Beckie put together for this quilt! 
The colors and a great pattern to showcase the prints. 

Quilted with a sweet little pattern ~ Bird in a Nest
Omni thread in Verbena
Quilter's Dream Wool batting

Just like the Autumn wedding quilt, the fabrics are the star.
The quilting is there for the texture

Beckie used the focus fabric for the backing as well

Absolutely gorgeous!
Thank you Beckie, see you later today :0)
Beckie and I are starting a new quilt project together ~ Moon Glow
and plan to work on the second block today.

This one is quilted for Claudia
again, the quilting is the texture that adds to the quilt

Quilted with a cotton thread from Signature in just the right shade of blue
and a wool batting to make the quilting pop

On the frame where you can see the texture of the design
Woven Wind by Apricot Moon

Also made with great fabric choices. And made well!
Borders are the most common problem area for longarmers. When borders are cut too small or too long and/or just added to the edges of a quilt top without measuring thru the middle, it makes for a challenge to keep the quilt square without quilting in tucks. Making a quilt like this one is is a good challenge in getting borders right and Claudia always does a beautiful job :0) So does Beckie. Sew nice to have good quilters as these two women for customers. Thank you Claudia and Beckie!
The backing fabric.

Almost finished is a sample quilt for Honey Run that will go to PIQF.
Checked in a couple more quilts this week that will go into ASQG quilt show
coming up in November, the weekend of the 7/8th
Silver Dollar Fairgrounds in Chico
You all are invited!

Have a wonderful weekend
Tot Ziens, Jo


  1. Both of these quilts are beautiful!
    Your quilting really adds a special finish to them!

  2. I agree your quilting is wonderful - and I love the picture of the Woven Wind by Apricot Moon quilting. I would be so happy to wrap myself up in that! Beautiful quilts.
