Quilting In Progress...

Got one tshirt quilt finished and a sweet customer quilt that I didn't share.  So sorry!  My quilting room was a wreck from the TShirt quilts and I was not gonna post until it was back to normal.  :)

Today's quilt is one of my favorite... Sun Bonnet Sue!
A Grandmother started this for her granddaughter roughly 30 years ago.  Well, now that granddaughter has a daughter.  So what is now Great-grandmother and grandmother have finished this for a Christmas gift.  Precious memories!
Some freehand flowers in the borders and outlining Sue.  It's gonna be adorable.
Happy quilting!

Quilting In Progress...

 Well, the quilting machine has been down for nearly a week over a 23 cent part.  Yep, I'm serious.  :). It cost a lot more to have it mailed.
So while I was waiting, I worked on a sweet tshirt quilt for a sweet customer.
Of course it isn't quilted yet but now it is ready to be.
Part arrived today so we will be back quilting tomorrow.  See ya then!

Quilting In Progress...

Sometimes we just get so excited about a quilt and that is this one.  It is for a very special pastor and is a memory quilt from his fathers clothes.  There weren't a lot of colors to use and that made it a little of a challenge.  (Did you know I love a good challenge?)
Of course the quilt was made using my AccuQuilt GO! cutter and dies.  We'll talk more about that in a second.  
The quilt went together really nice and quickly but my husband and I both thought it needed some dressing up.  So I decided to outline the triangles to keep those simples but look at what happened to the hexagons.  
The hexagons are getting lots of swirls and details to dress up the quilt.  Now I can't wait to get it finished.  (Still haven't decided on the borders.)

Now the dies used:
Body of quilt
55429 - Equilateral Triangle - 4-1/2" Sides - $19.99
55438 - hexagon - 4-1/2" Sides - $44.99
55024 - 1-1/2" Strip - $79.99
55032 - 3-1/2" Strip - $79.99
55017 - 2-1/2" Strip - $74.99

If you'd like to order any of these dies to add to your collection, just shoot me an email or comment.  Remember, you don't have to add every die to make a quilt.  Just add a few each time to slowly build you die library.

Happy quilting.

Quilting In Progress...

'Tis The Season....
Look at this beautiful Christmas log cabin quilt.
Penny did an outstanding job and I am honored to finish this for her.
I also love the scrappiness of it.  You can see in the big picture how everything just comes together, even though the fabrics are so different.
Well, back to quilting!
