What’s On The Design Wall

What’s On The Design Wall

Although I have three different design walls there’s never enough space for my on-going projects. Squished on this wall is my appliqué project designed by Esther Alieu. Loving just being able to use up my scraps for this one. Slow going for me especially because I really want to explore embroidery and embellishment. Lots more to go!

Next to appliqué is my Pam Holland UFO collection. Between Geraldine the giraffe, the wonderful thread painted cat and the cheesecloth portrait, I have truly enjoyed her classes. My dream would be to join Pam on one of her tours!

Next, I played with my Silhouette today and made a fun shirt. Can’t wait to wear it

And last but not least for the past couple of days, two beautiful quilts ready to go to their makers.

Have a great evening. Quilt and craft away. Karen

CLIENT QUILTS TO OOH AND AHHH OVER…

What a piece of perfection

What a piece of perfection

It always amazes me just how beautiful each and every quilt is, whether a simply pieced or one with great difficulty, a needle turned applique quilt or a machine completed one.  It’s no wonder why quilting is a craft of the centuries.  Here are a couple of quilts I have finished for clients lately.  The first is a beautiful quilt appliqued by Joyce.  What an artist.  She so carefully stitches these intricate pieces that none of her stitches rare visible.  Way to go Joyce!

Cyndi does some great pieced quilts.  Don’t you love the colors!  Both of these just jump out, each in their own way.  The heart quilt is a gift to her 90+ mom.  She will be thrilled.

ANOTHER CUSTOMER QUILT

ANOTHER CUSTOMER QUILT

This is a king size quilt completed in shades of brown to beige and tan.  Esther G. pieced it and will be giving it to a friend, I believe.  Such a lucky friend.  We did a lovely embroidered label for the back.

I love the neutral tones in this quilt.  Even though I love playing with all the brights I can get, this is the type of quilt I would definitely use!

Happy quilting…Karen

Off The Table Today

Off The Table Today

This is a gift for a retiring lady.  What a gift to receive!  The fabric choices were great and centered on shades of coral and blue.  The back matched the border fabric and was just so happy.  I embroidered and attached a label in remembrance of the retirement.  It included the ladies name, the date of retirement, the name of the pattern, the piecer and quilter’s names….great idea!  Barbara did a wonderful job on the quilt and I heard that everyone is excited to give it to her.

Look closely at the blue backing to a Quilts of Valor quilt I finished recently.  First time to use the quilting design…I really like it on the QOV.  I believe that it was designed by Nancy Haacke from Canada.

Enjoy…happy quilting.  Karen
