I feel like January is going by so fast already! The girls went back to school today. One is feeling better, the other…not so much, but nothing was keeping her home. We have been adding on/building a new school and today is the first day in the NEW school, so they were super excited to be back. Everything is new, but I think they were most excited for new lockers. 🙂
One of my goals this year is to post a whole lot more than I did last year. Trust me there is no shortage of material to post on, especially client quilts. I need to catch you up on all the quilting I did last year. I know my clients love to see their quilts posted more than anyone else!! So on with the show…and lots of photos. 🙂
My client, Jan did an amazing job on the piecing and fabric selection! Eventide is a quilt design by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co. Jan made her version a bit larger than the original pattern. I actually had a hard time capturing the whole quilt in one photo.
Gorgeous!! I love the romantic feel the fabric gives the quilt! The allover feather was a wonderful complement to it. The outer most border has a feather/swirl combo. I love how it looks!!!
The back is just as beautiful! It looks like another quilt!!
But there is more…this is actually a 3 part quilt. I quilted two matching pillow shams!! First shams I ever quilted. Really they were just like quilting mini quilts.
I love how the shams turned out!!
The back of the shams were so pretty too!! Although, when they are done no one will see it except for now. 🙂
Specifics…two layers of batting. That really made the quilting “pop.” So Fine threads on the top and in the bobbin. All the quilting is freehand.
One last photo that hopefully will make you smile. My sister ordered a new bathing suit and accidentally had it shipped to our house. She told me to open it when it arrived and send her a pic of it. This is what I sent her…
LOL!!!! I don’t know…Sarge will be a tough act to follow!!! 🙂
