Guess who's back.....

My girl April is back.  She's so well rested and ready to go.   She sounds so good with all her new boards, belts and stuff.  She even has interchangeable feet.  Can't wait to give the those a try when I do the custom quilting for Lorisquarepant.
April's back - yahoooooo!!
I have two quilts finished, the Awesome lap quilt and Little Boy Blue Chevron quilt - done.  I used the same pantograph on both Curly Q.  The little boy blue quilt is turned 90 degrees, I think it makes it looks a bit like a wave pattern, with the teals and blues I thought it was perfect.  Little Boy Blue has Hobbs Polydown batting  and the Awesome Lap Quilt has Hobb's 80/20 batting.  I had scraps big enough for both.  I really like getting the king size rolls simply for this reason. The scraps are usually big enough for a small lap or baby quilt and don't have to be pieced.  Although as you can see, sometimes really close! Love it.

Little Boy Blue back - looks like waves in the water doesn't it?
I still have 3 quilts lined up with backings ready to go.  And here's my wild design wall.  I did another Charm Pack Cherry this time with out a background color, I really like it.  a couple of other works in progress.

Check out all the linky parties on the side bar.  Oh and 100 quilts for kids is coming up soon!! There's a new button right at the top.  So excited!!

  2. I'm amazed that you get all that piecing done along with fancy quilting. and going to work? I say you must sneak out of bed during the night and go sew.
