Oh my gosh…is right.  Lots-O-quilting going on here.  The girls have been teasing me that I am like a vampire.  I am always down in the studio.  I never go out in the sunlight.  And I stay up all night.  They affectionately call me Edward (Twilight).  LOL!!  With all this quilting and such going on, it has left little time for piecing.  I do really well for a while.  Taking 10 minutes here and there to piece, but I have totally been slacking there.  I need to get back to it because it is so therapeutic.  I keep hoping to jump in on Another Year of Schnibbles.  Each month I pick out my charms or start one, but that is as far as I get.

I have little Schnibbles Work In Progress piles!!  Looks like Carrie Nelson is coming out with a bunch of new Schnibbles and full size quilt patterns.  How exciting!!  She gave a few peeks on her blog.  Actually, one of the quilts looks very very familiar.  πŸ™‚

Speaking of oh my gosh… Omigosh…

 This is JoAnne’s gorgeous version!!!  The pattern is Omigosh by Sue Garman.  There is a whole LOT-O-PIECING in this quilt!!

JoAnne has a great blog, The Patriotic Quilter, but for those of you not familiar, I’ll give you a little background info.  JoAnne and her husband live in Hawaii.  Her husband is in the military.  They will be moving back to the Continental US this year.  I was discussing quilting options with Scott and telling him about JoAnne.  He said, “maybe you could quilt a pineapple on the quilt some how.”  I loved the idea of making this an extra special “Hawaiian” quilt.  A little homage to JoAnne’s time in Hawaii.  It was all Scott’s genius idea.

 Scott even made me a pineapple template!!

The curved ruler is a Fine Line Quilter’s Ruler by Accents in Designs.  LOVE that ruler!!!

I love how it turned out!!!  Feathers…pineapples…swirls…what’s not to love??  πŸ™‚

JoAnne’s piecing was even phenomenal on the backing!  

She matched the print up perfectly!!

I think the backing has a very tropical Hawaiian theme too.

Specifics…I used Dream Wool batting.  Threads were Isacord and Glide.

Here is a before pic from when I posted about meeting JoAnne in person here.
Here you can see just how small the pieces are in this quilt…hence Omigosh!!  That is a dime!!

Whew!!  That is a lot of photos!!  I had to make up for being a slacker blogger lately.  πŸ™‚  Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

  • Lynn says:

    OMG is right. That's a dime!!! Yikes! Love the pineapple in the corners.

  • Mama Bell says:

    Wow, Linda! your quilting only enhances that beautiful and laborious piecing. I have the Omigosh pattern but have yet to dive in to that one. The pineapples are the perfect touch, love how you put them in the corners. Now, go out and get some sun!

  • Sheila says:

    OMG , that is amazing , such small pieces and your quilting is superb , love the pineapple , perfect addition!!

  • Kathy Schwartz says:

    The pineapple design is such a great personal touch and I'm bet you'll be using it again! Could be your new signature on some of the quilts you do and even hid it in some quilts.
    Swirls and feathers look fabulous and I guess your glad she didn't ask for SID! πŸ™‚

  • Darlene says:

    Love the pineapple design in the corners and the rest of the quilting is beautiful, Linda.

    I remember falling in love with the Omigosh quilt pattern 7 years ago.

  • Katie says:

    Wow that quilt is just fantastic, and the quilting is amazing! That pineapple is genius!

  • Brandie says:

    OMG is right! What a beautiful quilt and you just put the icing on the cake!

  • Sinta Renee says:

    Wow! I am familiar with Joann's blog but I did not see her working on this amazing quilt! amazingly small pieces… amazing colors… amazing piecing and on top of that your amazing quilting and a pineapple on top! Or is that a cherry on top… but I almost think that a pineapple should be worked in to all of your quilts/your personal ones… after all it's in your name.
    That is super fun that they are coming back to the main land!
    I missed Carries post… gotta go look…

  • Sinta Renee says:

    Ok I am back! That was a big treat… I don't think you mentioned that you had done some special quilting over there?!!!

  • Sue says:

    That is a beautiful quilt and yes, it sure looks like a lot of piecing. I see why it's called 'Ohmygosh'! I love the idea of the pineapple and it's such a nice touch in the corners. Really spectacular.

  • JoAnne says:

    Holy Cow! What an awesome post about my quilt. I was going to email last night when I saw that you quilted for Carrie! That is OMG! I didn't know that your husband came up with the pineapple idea. I love it so much! Tell him "Mahalo Nui Loa" for me. (Thank you very much.) I wish everyone could see the quilting in person–it is so gorgeous.

  • Teresa Silva says:

    Awesome! This is really nice. I love the swirls, the feathers and that little tiny white border is too cute. Very awesome job. Those Pineapples in the corners are really neat. Absolutely stunning!

  • WoolenSails says:

    Really gorgeous quilts and lots of piecing.


  • Impera Magna says:

    Oh my gosh! …is RIGHT! So many tiny pieces… wow!

    As usual, your quilting is stunning… definitely adds to the quilt, rather than compete with it or take away from it. Congratulations!
