I finally decided on the borders for the chicken quilt. Plain black. I am surprised to have chosen this fabric. I auditioned a few other fabrics, but this is the one.
|This rooster is ready to have the applique sewn down.|
|I have added sashing and cornerstones, but didn't take a picture yet.|
|This quilt was made from leftover triangles from another quilt! Stunning!|
|The Tula Pink fabrics are all ocean themed, and the customer requested that as the quilting design.|
|Octopi, crabs, seahorse, fish and starfish are in the pattern.|
|From under the sea to in the air! This quilt has a bird theme.|
|The customer has made one of these quilts for each of her siblings, and they all have the same pantograph: Little Birds|
|Maybe you can see it better on the plain back.|
|Disappearing nine patch is always a good design for a quick and pretty quilt.|
|There are tiny butterflies on the background fabric, so we used the panto Angel Wings. It looks like butterflies.|
|This one is a stack-n-whack from a kit.|
|The fabric is bright and colorful...right down my alley!|
Panto: Small Splat
|The panto is called Clamshell with grasses. I chose a simple design to match the elegance of the Japanese fabrics. Custom quilting would have been lost on this busy quilt.|
|The backing also came from Japan. It has a large noshi design on the blue background.|
We are going to our town's Butternut Creek Festival today, and hope it doesn't pour rain on us. The guild has a booth and will be selling tickets for the raffle quilt there. Mr Wazoo wants to buy another birdhouse for the yard. Fingers crossed for a nice day...
|The view down the driveway. The brown ramp was built so Mr W could get the tractor into the yard without having to drive all the way around the house to get to the yard.|
|These hydrangea are only two years old!|
|There is the welcome to the garden post we got in Oregon.|
|The walkway to the studio.|
|The front garden view from the studio.|
|The fountain/birdbath automatically shuts off at 6PM.|
This is what I see when I step out of the studio.
|Carolyn sent Mr W the sign for the garden for Father's Day.|
|Mr Frog among the roses.|
|Everything along the flagstone path is looking lush and pretty|
|Not a lot of color in the back garden, but it is still lovely.|
Butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds come and go here. I love to sit on the porch and watch the action at the end of the day.
|Mr Wazoo wants to add a green birdhouse to the row houses. Only one has a tenant right now, a little Carolina wren.|
|These hydrangea are a hybrid variety. The heads are huge, but less ball shaped than the regular ones.|
