I love the soft mix of colors with chocolate and teal!

Easing back into the blog

Life has been happening.
Traveling a lot with new position (yay)!
Lots of work with new position (loving the challenge)!
Son completed graduate degree (yay)!
Moved back home.
Son found job in career field (whoopee)!
Helped son find apartment in new city 2 hours away.
Gifted son with this quilt in recognition of his accomplishment:
Pattern: Metro Hoops made with Quick Curve Ruler by Sew Kind of Wonderful.
Curve and diamond fabrics are Little Black Dress 1. My son loves green, so I found this mottled fabric and love the classic look with the LBD fabrics.
FMQ on my glorious Tiara.
For the record:
I love the Quick Curve Ruler and the Sew Kind of Wonderful patterns are amazingly well written and easy to follow.

Long time, no post!

So, life happens!
Took a new position in my company, lots to learn, blogging took a back seat. Squeezing in quilting as often as possible. To catch you up, gentle readers: 
My Jolly Rodger, 20" by 20".
Lunch bag swap in TMQG
Quiling for $$$
More quilting for $$$
Yes, it is done but I didn't get a pic before it got hung! Hanging in a LQS, 105" square.
I purchased this quilt top from a group in Poland. I quilted it and donated to a church fundraiser. Approximately double-bed size.
20" by 20" pillow for our sofa.

So you see, I have quilted a bit!

Feeling productive

We got slammed with more winter weather the other week; sleet, ice, snow, 5" of the mess. I choose to use my enforced home-bound Friday in the studio. I started out sorting through my scrap bin & ended up making new pillow covers. 

I forgot how much fun they are to make. Instant creative gratification!

I need to make a few more, freshen up the sofa pillows!

A fun one, for me

I have had this idea gestating in my head for a while, so I decided to do it!
My "Jolly Rodger"
He's 20" square, on black Kona.
FMQ is Signature 40 wt. Polyester thread (grey) and 60 wt. bobbin thread (black).
I drew the outline of the skull in chalk, and thread-painted. Yep, it was way fun!
I added a variety of stiches to frame. I love him!
