Three for Leslie

Leslie brought in three quilts in the Fall to be quilted for the holidays 
This one was gifted to a family member at Christmas 

Leslie loves to work with 30's fabrics :0) 

Blue backing, same fabric as the cornerstones. 

Second quilt pieced by Leslie quilted with a custom e2e set up :0) 

Number three below with a little different layout 
this one the nine patch is straight set while the one above is set on point. 

The blocks for the last two are the same all in 30's fabrics. 
I used a number of different designs, some I came up with. 
All of the feather designs are from One Song Needle Arts via Digi-Tech.

The beginning stitch out of the first quilt for Leslie that was done custom. 
Thank you Leslie! 

I am headed for Road to California to spend all four days at the show! 
Hope to see some friendly faces there. I will be in Innova's booth 826
answering questions and playing on the longarms!
Studio will be closed until next week Wednesday, the 25th.
Michael will be here making sure nothing floats away 
and holding down the fort with the next storm system coming in :0)
Tot ziens, Jo

Sandy and Phoebe, Scrap Happy Beauties

The unexpected loss of our quilting friend just before the holidays really knocked the stuffing out of many of us. I know I did more quilts for Sandy but not finding the file this evening with the exception of the Library Quilt. Didn't post allot of pix during December because I knew many of these beauties were intended as Christmas gifts including this quilt. The downside of waiting to post pix... is finding the photo files. Just like everything else in my life... chaos that needs organizing!!!  😞

Sandy's Library Quilt

 Custom quilted with lots of fun ruler work. This was fun quilting to do for Sandy! 
Added a little steam coming off the coffee cup :0) 
The recipient of this quilt also loves Monopoly 
plus Sandy added DVDs and book set favorites. 

Love how Sandy made this scrappy ;0) 

and this is Star Blossoms for Phoebe... 
Scrappy as well! 
I know exactly what book this came from... Scrap-Basket Beauties 
by Kim Brackett. This quilt in the book is named Star Blossoms 
and I absolutely love how Phoebe did it in Kaffe. Well done Phoebe!!!
This book was one of Goldie's favorites 💖

 Custom quilting with a block design

Phoebe always picks a backing that's just as fun as the top! 👍

Thank you ladies... you are THE BEST! 
Tot ziens, Jo
