Christmas Catchup and Friends

 Saturday Morning Post with quilts from the end of the year
A quilt made by Donna L
for a grandson at Christmas

A fun quilting design for a fun quilt!
Crazy Swirls by Donna Kleinke
Quilted with a bright green Magnifico thread from Superior
Batting is Quilter's Dream Wool

Two quilts were finished in December for Beckie. One was in Christmas prints with Cardinals in snow covered Pine Trees that was custom quilted and apparently I neglected to get any pix. Bummer, it's really pretty! Beckie made that quilt for herself, she loves birds. Beckie also made this second quilt for a family member for Christmas. This one features a wolf print with some Stonehenge fabrics.  

Quilted with a pine tree and pine cones quilting design by Thomas Schick
Thomas has really great wildlife and outdoor type designs available
on Jessica Schick's website ~ Digi-tech. It's a great site with lots of designers to pick from.
One of my go to sites for designs and Jessica is really helpful to fix format issues

Wool batting from Quilter's Dream. LOVE the loft!

One more, this quilt is made by Kathryn,
a Christmas gift for her mother

Shenandoah is the pattern, Kathryn picked some great fabrics

Quilted with a design I refer to as Hummers 
It has small leaves with humming birds. Worked really well with the small leaf prints,
especially the backing. Quilted with a Fantastico variegated thread from Superior
with, guess what... Quilter's Dream Wool :0) Love the loft!

Here is a close up of a humming bird...

Thank you Kathryn! Donna and Beckie too!!!
I am so pleased to call each of you friends, there are five of us that meet for lunch every Monday, Nancy too. Not a quilter per say, I have quilted a vintage Dresden Plate quilt for Nancy that was made by a member of her family. Some days we are joined by more quilters, Karen and Kathy W, customers as well. I have the best customers!

Donna, Beckie and I have known each other from Cathy's, before Honey Run made the move, many moons ago ;0) Kathryn, is new to the group and the 'office'. What is really amazing, Kathryn is also new to quilting! Karen loaned her one of her sewing machines, Beckie started supplying her with fabric from her stash and she has taken off from there. She made a second quilt as a Christmas gift for her MIL and quilted it herself! We are all pretty impressed by this very talented young woman! 

There are more quilts to catch up on. Between the holidays, a bug I caught and just trying to keep up with life. There are more quilts to post, for another day, some quilts in the works right now. Getting used to a new to me camera, a point and shoot of Michael's that is working out for now. Another challenge is taking pix indoors. We are getting rain... lots of it, which is a good thing, but not for taking pix outdoors. All good, we need the rain! Yea!!!

Enjoy your weekend!
Tot ziens, Jo
