I am happy to report I am back home from the Grand Rapids AQS Show. I have been home for a week, but I seem to have caught a horrendous cold. It has knocked me off my feet, literally. Yesterday, I couldn’t even get out of bed. Quilting has been impossible, which is so frustrating with looming deadlines, not to mention a family. I was able to quilt until the fever started. Now, I have given in to just riding out the “cold” storm. I figure if I don’t rest, it will just get worse. Today, I am feeling much better.
I have lots to share about Grand Rapids!!!!! Tons!!!!! Next week, though. 🙂 I will share the quilt that I just gave a peek of last post, “Lisa’s Favorite Things” the Summer Freebie from Primitive Gatherings. I LOVE it!! Wool is near and dear to my heart, so of course I love it. 🙂 Lisa loves it too!!! She was very happy with the quilting!! It was a big hit in the Primitive Gatherings booth at the show. I think lots of folks that missed out on it being a freebie plan on ordering it as a kit. I will let the photos do the all the talking!!
I have a great little quilt holder. 🙂
Lots of freehand feathers. I wanted them to mimic a flowing flowers climbing a trellis and overflowing out of the basket of flowers.
Lots of micro stippling too.
I love the back too!!! I love the way light threads look on a dark backing. Creates a very striking look. Makes the quilting look super cool. That is my personal opinion.
Specifics…all threads are So Fine by Superior. Batting is Hobbs 80/20 in black. All quilting is freehand. The quilt is wool applique on cotton. Kits will be available from Primitive Gatherings here.
Hope everyone has wonderful weekend!!!
