Just keeping busy.

I am trying really hard to be organized so that there is time enough in the day for kids, husband, designing and quilting. Does anyone know how to create more time? I am in need of it.

This is one of my customer's quilts. I loved how it turned out.

Another quilt, and I think it was one of my personal favorites to quilt. The quilting design came together so nicely. Don't laugh too hard at the feathers in the picture below, this quilt was my first attempt at doing feathers. I think I kind of like it, and I am not so scared to do them anymore.


Do I even need to explain why my back aches all the time?

I can't complain too much. Since I have been quilting so much I have developed some arm muscle and I kind of like it.

That quilting pattern (which I'm sure has an official name in the quilting world) is just gorgeous. I must learn how to quilt!!!

Combination of a strong girl and nice work make a lovely quilt. You are doing great. Just take care of your back in between the battles.

You look like you are hanging on that quilt bar, like we used to in the old days of monkey bars. Looks like fun, until you realize that you aren't 8 anymore and feel the pain of the sore back :)

Very nice quilting!
My kids are raised and gone, but I still need more hours in a day. I went to town yesterday, and found I had no time to sew. That makes three days in a row, and I'm in such distress! If I had spare hours, I'd send them your way, but sorry. For now I'm being greedy.

Your quilting is beautiful, and look at those arms! I never thought long arms could replace the gym!

Danielle said...

Awesome quilting! I love the different quilting designs.

Sherri said...

If you find out how to make more time please tell me lol! And I absolutely love your quilting on the Patisserie quilt...I'm making that same quilt, and you've just inspired me to go finish it!

Nice post Judi- you have always had great arms, but I have to admit I did notice the great tone when we saw you in March! You rock an everything looks amazing as usual!

Lundholm Fam said...

I absolutely love the quilts. I like them both, but I really like the first one. Great job. You are truly inspiring.

by the way...nice muscles

One more reason to get a long arm....I use Richard Simmons toning cords but a longarm would be alot more fun. Love the quilts you showed. Good luck with the balancing of life...

GARI said...

Great quilting. And I do understand the back problem but when the quilts turn out so good, it is worth it, isn't it?

Chris said...

Your quilting looks just beautiful! If you find more time , you would definitely be in GREAT demand by all of us out there in blog land, I could use a few extra hours every week!:) I would love to see a finished Photo of the "Objects of Desire" quilt, I made a table runner out of those fabrics and LOVED it! Have fun!

Hummm, I've been wanting to tone my arms. Maybe I can convince husband that I need a long arm.

Angela said...

Wahoo!! Arms of steel! :)

Carlotta said...

So that's what I have to do to get great arms. Thanks. LOL, now there's got to be a better way to get that quilting done. That's got to be uncomfortable.
~Tootles for now!
