Back In The Saddle

What are friends for? To nudge you when they miss you on your blog! Thanks to my quilt blog friend Val over at Val's Quilting Studio, as she gently said, "Where the heck have you been, girl?"

 I've actually been posting on Instagram, because it's much faster, easier, and people can just 'heart' the post and you get immediate feedback to know someone has seen your photo and read the comment. However, I do have lots of goodies that I have been quilting this fall, which are worthy of further attention, so I'm back!

I'd like to share this amazing quilt that a friend of mine had me quilt for her. It's a wool applique quilt on a cotton background. She does simply amazing work! The quilt received the Best In Show award at The Trailing of the Sheep Quilt Show last month. 


It's fun to look at the quilt from a distance, because when I quilt it, my view is only the square foot or so of quilt that is right in front of my face. It's kind of like I 'can't see the forest for the trees' because I'm just too close.

Here are a couple of close-up shots of the detail work.


Shoot! I forgot to take pictures. (Hangs head....)  Guess I was so glad to have it finished, that I spaced taking photos. I cropped the larger photo to show the detail, but it's not the greatest. Silly me.




Guess I need to be a better blogger, lol! Next time.

Quilting with a smile,
Barb
