It's definitely that time of year! Above is another customer quilt, made for a graduation gift. I wish I received a quilt for graduation...all I got was luggage...think they were trying to tell me something??? Ha Ha!!! I quilted this one using the pattern Fascination by Lorien, which is such a nice pattern and I used lime Cucurini thread and it looks FAB!

A dear friend of mine made this massive quilt as a graduation gift and I had the pleasure of quilting it for her. The pattern is called Jupiters Burning from the July/August issue of Quiltmaker magazine. I love her choice of color, it looks so striking in person. What a beautiful gift!

I am a huge fan of Pine Needles quilts and have finally started my In Full Bloom kit that I purchased last summer. With the help of my niece, we started on the sleeps six block, thought we'd start small. My niece does beautiful drawings and wants to learn to quilt during her week long visit with me, so we looked through my projects in waiting and picked an art quilt. I put her to work straight away with tracing and in no time flat she had all the images traced out. I put them to fabric and a few short hours later we had our first block. I will stash it away for now in wait for thread painting and a little embellishment.

This flannel quilt is a customer quilt that I had the pleasure of quilting for her. It's one of those stack and slash patterns I think it's called Trees Up. I used King Tut Thread on the top with So Fine on the bottom. Pattern is Bright and Breezy by Lorien.
I'm a busy bee at the studio lately, I now have 16 quilts needing my attention. There aren't enough hours in the day!
