Quilts for Betty

Lately I am quilting faster than I am taking pix! Which is a good thing with PIQF and the holidays coming up in the all too near future :0) At the beginning of this month Betty brought in 4 quilts, all of which she has picked up. Love her work and especially love quilting for her, one of my favs :0)

Check out this cute baby quilt...
This is the row print mixed in with other fabrics that Betty used to make this cutie

and the kangaroo quilting design that worked perfectly for this quilt!
LOVE my Innova!

Above is the backing, a pretty ribbed knit similar to Minkee... very soft and cuddly
and ever so stretchy!!! again, love my Innova!

 lots of cute Aussie Babies :0)

A 2nd quilt Betty brought in was actually pieced by her small group part of our quilt guild.
It's a quilt top they started during our guild's community service night this summer.
(Just as many longarmer's do... my quilting time is donated to community service)
Also guild related... this was a guild's recent block of the month
Betty won all of these blocks made by guild members...
and now they are Bee Haven!
That's the design from Anne Bright I used to line up to each of the blocks
 to finish off this fun quilt

and last is a quilt Betty made... I believe the name is Maisie Daisy
Very graphic and very scrappy!
 Quilted with Echo b2b also by Anne Bright

Definitely some very fun quilts!
Thank you Betty :0)

These were finished a week or so ago... many more have come and gone
some with pix and some without
Having a hard time keeping up!

Tot ziens, Jo

Kathryn's Labyrinth quilt

Wow, 10 days since my last post! Time flies when you are having fun quilting ;0) With a new month starting just as I got back from Sandy, Utah many quilts came in since the 6th, following the holiday weekend. Several are quilted and ready to be trimmed. Have allot of pix and posting to catch up on as all my time has been spent quilting.

Loving all the little tricks and details I learned from Renae at Quilts On the Corner. It's made my experience with my longarm sew much better and I am getting lots of customer quilts completed! 

Kathryn's Labyrinth is the first quilt I finished as soon as I got back to work in the studio. Already delivered, Kathryn was very happy with the outcome and I hear that Ryan loved it as well! Yea! 

This is the center of Kathryn's quilt... it's big :0)

Sorry about the out of focus pix, I am using a borrowed camera and didn't notice that the settings were changed until after the quilt was picked up :0( 

The quilt laying across my frame after quilting...

Quilted with a design named Peacock Feathers 
using a variegated thread from Superior that went from green to dark teal. 
Batting is Quilter's Dream Wool... love that loft! 

 The quilting pattern was chosen to pick up the shapes in the fabrics 
mimicking the same texture but using curves to add softness to the hard lines. 
For an all over pattern it worked pretty well and was a good option for a big quilt. 

I neglected to get a picture of the backing... it was a navy blue solid.
Using that bright green color in a solid thread really popped!

Thank you Kathryn :0)

I'll try and get more pix posted but for now, getting caught up is a priority...
as well as buying a new camera. Sew much to do!
Enjoy your weekend :0)
Tot ziens, Jo

BTL ~ Back to Longarming!

Back from Boot Camp at Quilts on the Corner. Spent the holiday weekend getting back on track after a week of longarm training. I blogged about my experience on my personal blog Ramblin' Rows... here is a link. If you are a longarmer I highly recommend going to Renae's Boot Camp. It's sew worth it! I learned allot, looking forward to using new ideas, tools and growing with my craft.

More pix and info HERE 
Tot ziens, Jo
