Pictures finally!

Remember this quilt that I posted on the 17th?  The customer has received it now, so I am posting completed pictures today.

This quilt was large (94×115) and the fabrics are busy, which made the quilting difficult to see on the front side.  But there was a lot of opportunity for custom quilting, which the customer wanted.

The center quilting shows on the front best in the photographs:

I’ve also done 2 pantograph quilts, and am now working on a batik star quilt which is full custom.  I’ll post pics of those after the customers receive them back.

And lest you think I’m not doing anything for me, I’ve started my Creativity Challenge 2010 quilt (thanks Ronda for the challenge!).  My challenge in this, I’m using strictly black and white and yellow!  Yes, I said YELLOW, bright, bold yellow!!!!  Not golden yellow, or pale butter cream yellow, but in your face, hello I’m yellow yellow!

I’ve also this last week  spent a lot of time with company……which is definitely recupe time for the spirit!  Nothing like great company to relax and unwind with!

And I’ve pulled out my easels and my paints, something I’m long overdue to get back to doing!

So, how was your week?

  1. I am quilting the same top & am using the TB quilting designs. It is no where near as nice as your quilting on this one. 🙂
