WIP Wednesday

I am sitting on the couch, yawning....this humid weather is getting to me.  I am linking up to Monika over here... And
This morning, I delivered this quilt to its owner...all hand quilted. I do at least one every summer for this lady.
A few close ups...
Very hard to see the quilting on this one!!!
I have this one in the frames and started hand quilting it yesterday...
Called Sand Dollar...quilting it for a good friend.
I made my pillow for the FMQ Challenge/August....
The details are in my earlier post....
I have 2 quilts waiting to be hand quilted after the Sand Dollar, and 2 of my own to quilt
I have a couple of quilts travelling this of mine went to France and one went to Austria this past weekend.  So nice to meet these folks!

Have a fun week everyone!!!!

FMQ Challenge/ August 2015

Well....we are nearing the end of August already, and I have spent most of it in the garden.  This months challenge was left so long that I am lacking in imagination.  But, I did!!!! 

This month, we had Angela Walters as our professional...she is just sweet!  Now, we had options again, and I chose the option of Angela's Dot to Dot Quilting class which I took on line.  This is a very basic example of the class in whole, and you could add so much more fillers here.
To see more pillows this month hop on over here....

Here is my little entry for this month...

I intended to add more to this, but my beans were calling enjoy the challenge everyone,and thanks for visiting.

WIP Wednesday

Hello again, I missed last week because I am slow at quilting right now....gardening. Today, I completely played myself out!!!! I love harvesting the garden, but did too much this  But relaxing now!!!!

I now have 48 pints of beans frozen, and today I froze 20 pints of peas...which took much more work than the beans did. And I have 20 pints of beets pickled. Our garden is fantastic again this year.
Ok....enough about my tired

Right now I am working on hand quilting a customer quilt...
I am halfway through it...
A couple of close ups...
It's really a beautiful quilt, but hard to see in these pics.  I'll show it again when finished.
I am piecing another gray and yellow quilt like the last customer quilt I made here....
I just liked it so much...I have 2 customers quilts waiting to be hand quilted, and a few more people thinking about orders. So, I could be very busy...fingers

Post Holiday Weekend/ WIP Wednesday

' Well, I think this New Brunswick Day weekend was the best!!!  We had perfect weather for whatever you wanted to do'!! Now it was hot, but no complaining...summer is short.
We spent time in the garden, lazing around home and cruising in the convertible...perfect!!!

Last week was productive for me ...I finished hand quilting this quilt, called 'Prints on Point'.
This was a kit from Connecting Threads.
I also finished machine quilting this yellow and gray quilt for a customer.  This picture is the back of the quilt. I will post better pics after I bind it.
This is in the dark, which shows the quilting more...I did some meandering, and some figure eights.
This is the real colour...

I have three customer quilts to hand quilt right now and one on the way to machine quilt. Mine are waiting, which is good!!!!!
Well.....back outside. I waxed the Solstice, now I need to go back out and buff it!!!

Here are the rest of the quilt pics.
Front...and back...
Are you tired of it yet???  Lol. I am linking up to Monika at
