Same day...New post!

The work day is finished and I felt like showing you the quilts from today instead of waiting until tomorrow. There is still hand sewing to do, but I'll get to that in a minute.
Mr Wazoo helped in the studio today, quilting  a cozy looking quilt. I like the simple pattern and think it will be a charity quilt of mine in the future! This one is a Christmas present for the customer's son. At least I think that's what she said...we have several Christmas projects waiting in the queue.

I'm going to make this, for sure!

I love the pattern

Soft homespun on the back.

I worked these two bright quilts for the same customer, doing a feather meander with a flower motif in the dimensional squares.

They are the same size, I just folded one to show the pieced back.

After lunch, a customer came with a dilemma. Her sister is having a very rough time, so she made a cheerful quilt to send to her. The sister lives in Nova Scotia, and shipping things there takes a while, so she wanted to have it done quickly, if we could. I'm a sucker for a sad story (or a new baby) and got right to work on the quilt. The sister is a tea lover, so the quilt will be perfect for her. Unfortunately, the quilter is a novice and there were a few issues with the quilt. I sewed up some open seams, made the back and got it quilted. Then I made the binding and attached it so I can do the hand sewing tonight. The quilt will be ready to go tomorrow with only a slight hiccup in the quilting schedule. Everybody needs to do a good deed once in a while, don't you think?!

So cheerful and pretty!

The binding is the same fabric as the backing

My favorite is the bee hive tea pot with the cute bumble bee.

On the way upstairs, I stopped to watch bumble bees in our front  yard enjoying the Russian sage plants!It was another beautiful day here on the mountain.



  1. I can't even express how much I love the green batik quilt. I have every one of those fabrics in my stash. I agree about that quilt at the top of this post--It looks like it will be fun to make and a great charity quilt. ALSO--I have that teapot pattern and all the fabrics pulled! I'm ready to get started on it as soon as I unpack!

  2. My favorite color is lime green, so I like the quilts, too!
