Sharon is so cute and she is a precise and perfect piecer when it comes to quilts. This is my first quilt that I have quilted for her and I really enjoyed this one. Sharon is Emily's sister and if you have seen Emily's quilts, you know that Sharon has a different spin on piecing, but I love both of their styles!
Sharon's request on this quilt was to have smoke coming out of the chimney's and this was my take on that! I hope it's what she had in mind. I had fun with some feathering too.
I am seriously having a hard time giving up these quilts. I'll tell you that much. I really need to make something for myself! One day soon I hope.
Love this picture, but don't you just want to pull that thread off! Sorry, I wasn't about to re-hang the quilt for another picture though.
Here's the center of the quilt with a cool feather design going on. This worked great because the center was small enough to make it fairly easy to draw out this design.
Here's the center back of the quilt. I love it just as much as the front!
A closeup of the feathering.
One more closeup! I feel like I am getting into the grove with the quilting, I finally have my calendar schedule so that I don't feel overwhelmed with quilting and the goal is two quilts a week, if they are big and I will add in another one if I have a small one. Trying to balance out life is crazy, but I think I have finally figured it out. First and foremost is the family and if I keep myself on a schedule, then the quilting and designing will come along too.
