Progress being made on Frolic. 5 blocks completed and they are looking good. Excited about finishing up this quilt.

Frolic Blocks
All rows are done for Tannenbaum, just need to finish up the two applique rows that are missing fromt the picture below. These I will be taking on my trip to Texas later this week, with the hopes of completing this quilt top when I return.



Finishes will happen soon in my Sewing Studio! Have a great week!

Sunday Stash Report

A finish to report this week! I needed a panel quilt to bring to guild meeting this week and remembered I had one to make for DH. I purchased this panel along with a couple of corrdinating fabrics  a few years back during one of the Shop Hops in San Diego. So out it came and in one short afternoon I was able to put the top together!

Koi Panel Quilt
DH really loved this and I will be quilting it for him in the near future.

Also completed this week is the Block of the Month, also for Guild on Tuesday. Two blocks this month with a red/white theme for Valentines.

Design Wall Monday

This week I will be finishing up the Quilting my RWB Dear Jane! This has been 5 years in the making and is almost done. It has taken the entire month of January, with all the custom quilting on each of the 169 blocks and 52 Triangles.

About 2/3 done.

Some of the blocks.

Scalloped border.
Next will be the binding. With the scalloped borders this will be a challenge for me.I will be super glad when this is finished and I can get on to other quilting projects. Thanks to all my clients for being so patient. Have a great week and Happy Sewing!

Road to California Quilts!

This year the quilts were all together in one hall. It made viewing them very enjoyable and the lighting let you see the detail. Here are some of my favorite Quilts from the show. The first one is the Grand Prize winner by Marilyn Badger and was stunning.


Below are more of my favorites. Loved all of these Medallion style quilts.






Sandi and I both loved the Family Tree below, it had many fun sayings stitched in.

Family Tree on Antique Quilt.

Beautiful Applique.

Green Pinapples

Beautiful Minatures.

It was a great show and we are looking forward to next year!
