Catch-up!

Its been almost a week since my last blog posting, Yikes time has gone so fast over the last week.  Life has been busy for me, since my last posting on the Christmas Joy Quilt, I had my last class were we made the Poinsettia Row, which is the last row.  We got one block done and the corners put on the block, I just need finish the other 4 blocks up to finish the row.  Almost done with this quilt, then time it will need to be quilted. 

Speaking of quilting, I have been also been
practicing with some meandering  designs and some applique echoing on an old Quilt that has been waiting for quilting for over 15 years. I hand appliqued all the Tulips on this quilt years ago, the Pattern came from a QuiltMaker Magazine.  I was originally, going to hand quilt this quilt but I never really got very far so, I took the basting stitches out and put it on the long arm for practice.

I have also been practicing my feathers which have been a challenge for me, put starting to get them looking nice.  The feathers are going on the borders, which is great practice for me. I need to finish this tulip quilt so, I can put the next one on when ready. Half way there already.


In the sewing room, I have 2 more projects being assembled right now, besides the Christmas Joy Quilt.  One is another Christmas quilt for a friend and the other will be one I will be selling on Etsy. 

Hoping to get alot of quilting and sewing done this next couple of weeks. 



Have a great Monday,

Tina

Christmas Joy Row 5!

I have finally caught up on my homework for the Christmas Joy Class at Michelle's Quilts.  The last class we started working on the basket row and the checkerboard rows. The basket row is a time consuming row, do to all the little pieces in the baskets. 


The checkerboard rows was also a little time consuming do to I need 7 rows for finishing the quilt.  They are attached to the top and bottoms of every row we have made to far in the class.  After getting them all sewn together yesterday, It is starting to look almost finished.  



One more class to make the Poinsettia row and the Candy Cane Binding.  This is going to be a really nice quilt top when I get this one finished.  Today, I need to finish cutting everything out for the next row class is in a couple days.  Yikes!!

Modern Quilt Finished and Binded!

Monday, I finished working on the Modern Quilt and the binding on the quilt finished.  The modern quilt was for a customer. 
 I used Quilters Dream Select which the left the quilt top light weight to match the quilt designs the customer asked for.  She asked for geometric and ocean type quilting. 

I quilted clam shells in the middle of the rectangles, and waves through out the the background of the quilt.  I connected the waves with the light color rectangle borders with zigzags.   The whole quilt top flows together.


The backing was made by the customer and embroidery by her.  I just sewed on the binding on this quilt  that she sent me.



This quilt is ready to go back to customer!

Best in Show, Surprise!

Last Wednesday, I dropped off my Tulip Quilt for the Fair.  I was not able to go check back to see how I did until Saturday.  I had the biggest surprise and shock!  I had ribbons and signs on my quilt.  I received Best in Show Machine Quilt, and first place in my class combination Machine and hand applique.

I was so excited for the rest of the day, and all weekend.   What an honor, to enter my first quilt into any event and come out with awards like these.

Modern Quilt on the Longarm!

Tuesday, I received a quilt in the mail from a new customer.  I received was a beautiful blue Modern Quilt from a new quilter.  





 




Wednesday, I started working on this quilt. This was her first time making a quilt. So the I had to do some minor repairs to make sure it would be able to get the quilt on the longarm straight and it would come apart at the seams when quilting.




She asked for geometric shapes and ocean type quilting on it.  So I have been quilting waves and shapes on the quilt.  



In the middle of the rectangles I have been adding Clam Shells, which is finishing off the quilting nicely.


Time to get back to work on this quilt.

2013 Designer Mystery BOM - Month 2

Well, I cant believe that I am behind on the 2013 Designer Mystery BOM from Fat Quarter Shop already and we are getting ready for the 4th month.  I finally have completed month 2.  Looks like this quilt will be full of Baskets.  

Block 2 "Bows & Baskets" was a fast little block to complete.   You start with making the center of the block.

After the center is complete you start on the top making the bow and the handles.


Then you make the bottom of the basket.


Then sewing all the sections together to make a nice looking basket. 
 


Now, I just need to get Block 3 done before the current month comes in the mail.
