Sharon's Quilt

1

It's all in the family again! This time it is Sharon's (Em's sister) quilt. This is a cute quilt inspired by the quilt pattern "Everyday Best" by Piece O Cake. Sharon did a wonderful job piecing it and I was happy to quilt it. This was a simpler quilt job for me - I got it done in 5 hours.

Her fabric choices are great - I had a lot of fun with them. I chose a yellow thread (#420 So Fine) to go on the whole quilt. I think it worked great with the fabrics.

Criss-cross here - I love it!

Connecting Curves here.

The borders were really fun - I loved how they turned out. This quilt was another no mark quilt - I just free motion quilted everything and used my straight edge ruler for the straight lines and stitch in the ditch.

I love the quilts where I can just have fun quilting what I want. I can do that more with quilts that have bolder fabric prints all together.

On to the next quilt - I have some major quilting coming up - I hope I don't go crazy with the details, but I am really excited about the thought of it!

Judi due to the fact that all my children are home and starting a computer is against the rules I am commenting on this and the last. First I am a longarm quilter, not as good as you in the least my claim to fame is drawing my own pantographs ooooh, but I understand the preasure of not having time for yourself. Do not beat yourself up over this, people need to realize that dropping there problem off to you does not make it yours and yours alone. Enjoy life, family, and church not in that order but you get it. Second, once again you have pulled of and amazing quilt job, it is beautiful and you are so accurate in your stitching, design a pattern here and there don't worry about MODA, maybe Henery Glass will want you, or Riley Blake, don't open your door just a little think bigggg there are alot of opportunities out there and the first one just came your way.

Have a happy new year, and all the best to your family, I met you at the blogger meet up in Utah and think your are amazing, BELIEVE in yourself.

Hugs Tammy
