Sorry....long over due....

Two weeks from tomorrow we celebrate the wedding of our oldest daughter!  It is so exciting and very busy.  I had no idea how busy it would be...and tiring.
I have done little sewing, and almost no blog reading....I am so sorry....
But I have been working with some fabulous quilters in the shop!
We recently finished Anna Maria Horner's Feather Bed Quilt!
This group of quilters knocked my socks off!  AMAZING!

 Megan!  A first quilt!

 Amanda! I love this Essex background in Black and the aqua stems!

Jenny's quilt for baby Milo!  And, tonight baby Milo was born! Welcome Milo!

 Kelli used Essex, as well, on this fantastic quilt! I love the coral stems!  Wonderful, Kelli!

Tonight we had a couple of finishes for Denyse Schmidt's Flowering Vine Quilt....

This is Sara's quilt.  It is breathtaking!  A bright green vine on navy kona background....brilliant.  And the stitching!  White perle cotton in graphic lines! I LOVE IT!

This is Morgan's Flowering Vine!  I love the Essex background in Leather...with this teal polka dot vine!  Yummy!  

I can't tell you how much fun it is to sew with these women. What a lucky girl I am!
Happy Friday!


  1. I love all of the Feathers quilts - we made some for a bee member and I can't wait to see them all together.
