Chicken Little

Here's a special quilt made by Cathy. I'm pretty sure she found the pattern at our favorite California quilt store, The Granary.

I tried a border design that Jenny & Judi use. 

Of course Cathy put a barn on the back of her quilt! Too cute!

Did you get out & enjoy the sunshine today? If you live anywhere in Western Washington we'll have a couple more days of this & then the you know what returns.

I will have some beach pictures soon. It was a lovely evening to watch the sunset.

Happy Friday

It's sunny! Love seeing the sunshine today. And I love quilting cheery quilts! This is a great little flower quilt by Norada. 

I like making the flowers sing.

Leaves are always good in borders.

Have any fun plans this weekend? The yard is still calling here. But so are a couple movies that came out today. Hmmm, what to do?

Stay tuned for a cute little chick quilt & more from Jennifer & Kim.

Have you seen what Jenny has been up to? A 30 day challenge to finish all of her customer quilts so she can focus on her Quick Curve Ruler. Stop by & say HI here.

Be back soon.

Summer Quilts

Peggy made this lovely summer quilt. Don't you love the pattern & colors? So cheery!

Miss Jennifer worked a long time to get this hexagon quilt done. All Y seams. I always love the colors she picks.

I used the pant Pumeria Gardens. 

Obviously this isn't a quilt. Just had to show my tomatoes in the hanging planter. Busy bumble bees in my neighborhood!

Have a couple of quilty get togethers this week. Always good to laugh & quilt with friends.
Hope you have a good week. 
Quilts are calling. Be back soon.

Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner!

Got an exciting e-mail form CA customer Janice today. The diamond batik quilt she had me quilt won some ribbons. Woohoo!

Hi Sharon,

Today was the first day of the San Mateo County Fair and I was so shocked to see not 1 but 3 ribbons on the batik diamond quilt you quilted with the pine boughs.  It got a 1st place, a Judge's Choice, and a Mary Whitehead Memorial Award ( Best of Division 620, Amateur Piecing/Professional Quilting).

Thanks again for the beautiful job you did.


Here's a closeup of the pine bough quilting. 

Congratulations Janice!

Better get going so I can catch up on yard work today.
