My goodness, the days are just flying by. Oh, yea, that's because it's December! Duh.
Here's a little peak at what I have been working on this week. I'm still trying to get customer's quilts done up for them in time for Christmas gift-giving, and I'm almost done!
This quilt is nearly king sized and exquisitely pieced.
The center of each block is different.
A very traditional quilt with a light cream/almost yellowish colored background.
All custom quilted. I changed thread colors in the maroon sashing and triangles.
I had fun quilting large symmetrical flowers in the center of each different block.
Smaller flowers for the center stones of the large X blocks.
A sea of quilty goodness!
I've asked Santa for a new camera for Christmas. He just scoffs at me. Maybe I just need to take a photography class to sharpen my skills :(
At any rate, this was a fun quilt to do! My client had me quilt up a large piece of the border fabric. She'll cut it up to make matching pillow shams. She also has a bed skirt in the works to coordinate with this quilt. What a wonderful bedroom that will be to walk into!
And lest I forget, I'd like to announce the winner of my Giveaway Day drawing. Thank you to all 131 one of you who took the time to read my blog and comment. I appreciate it! I polled the Random Generator and lucky Sandra (sandit1) will receive the two Moda charm packs. Congratulations, Sandi!
