Busy, Busy, Busy

Whew! I have been working on some big quilts with some rather elaborate quilting.

This beauty is queen size. The block is called Snow Crystals. I posted a detail picture before. When I took these pictures I didn't have a quilt stand, so I used a closet pole and two ladders as my stand. I have a quilt stand now. Way easier to get pictures now.

I love the way it looks from the back.


I used part of a paisley design from a Dover Publications coloring book. The center of the large paisley was my inspiration for the background vine. There are so many great motifs that could be translated into quilting designs.  

This is the next quilt I worked on. It is the opportunity quilt for one of the local guilds. It measures 93"x93". I used a Barbara Chainey stencil for the first white border. I tried to find a source so that I could provide a link, but I wasn't able to find it. I had purchased it from StenSource, but they no longer sell retail.

The stencil only had the side motif. I had to create a corner motif.

After those two I worked on an opportunity quilt for the Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue Society.

The quilting doesn't really show up on this one. Each block has a picture of a Rhodie at a world landmark. I used Superior's Mono-Poly to provide detail quilting in each block. This one is going to be making the rounds of dog shows on the East Coast.

I'm quilting like a crazy lady so that I can finish Twinkle Stars by May 1, and get it in the mail to MQS.
