|Hard at work on one of the huge quilts.|
|Manicured lawn and the garden is filling out|
|This is what it looked like when I got it.|
|Here are the pieces pinned in place and ready to applique down.|
|I realized when posting the 'before' photos, that I had forgotten to take the 'after' shot. Drat!! Well, you'll have to believe me that it looked great and he was thrilled. The next quilt will show you an 'after' shot worthy of the blog!|
|This block was the only one with disintegrated fabrics. Look closely and you'll see all the brown plaid fabric is falling apart.|
|Here is the same block after I appliqued in the 9 new pieces. The owner wanted something 'prettier' in place of the plaid.|
|This is the quilt. I took this picture to show the colors better.|
|I didn't think they showed up as well indoors, on the bed.|
The repaired block is center right.
|Hand quilting all intact. Lovely!|
|I also got a new chair! Ooooo!! Swanky!|
|Here she is! The insert for the Koala table hasn't come yet,|
but I'm comfortable using the extended platform that comes with the machine.
The nifty accessory box came with it, too.
|With the new slim light on, I am in sewing Heaven.Thank you, Mr Wazoo!|
|This quilt is a two-fer. Not only will it be a charity quilt, but it is one of my UFOs for the UFO club. I have been bending the rules a bit by doing mine out of order, but it doesn't seem to matter. They're done.|
|The digital panto is feather swirl|
|This one is a good boy quilt, with meander quilting.|
|This one looks more girly to me. Same quilt pattern.|
|I'm not sure I like this quilt...too pink! It is from a jelly roll pattern.|
|My favorite digital panto: Flower Power|
I did make a quilt for me, too. Using some of the Australian fabrics from my stash, I made this BQ quilt. The background fabric is a Kaffe Fassett shot cotton.
|BQ (which stands for Big Quilt) and Miss Molly on the photobomb.|
|Panto: Stacked Snailz.|
I love the texture of this quilting.
