The Big Quilts

These were 2 of the BIG quilts that I quilted this past month. It was buzzy busy here.
This first quilt is from Sarah S.  I think it was a Sampler from The Granary Quilt Shop.

The border was quite wide. So I came up with the scallop & double lines. 

All the different blocks were really wonderful.

Susan made this big Irish Chain. 118" square!'
I went with a leaf theme.

And a border using the piecing as my guide.

I have more to show you. I promise not to be gone so long next time.
Getting ready for some Little Mister time. It's so nice having them close now.
Hope everyone is enjoying time with family & friends.
Be back soon.

From The Sick Bed

Why is it that just before the holidays some nasty cold knocks you for a loop? 2 days of sleep & I'm feeling better. Here's some of the quilts that have come & gone recently.
Some Seussical magic from Mary.

Grandson #5 gets Jonne's cute antique toy quilt.

Julia made this great Christmas quilt. I think she'd been working on it awhile. Best of all, it's done! I had fun with all the little squares.

Liked this freehand holly border.

Lots more to show you. Just need to upload the pictures. 
Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving. We are headed to the Little Mister's house.
Be back soon.

Washington State Quilters
"My Heart Belongs to Quilting"

I've heard about the wonderful quilt show in Spokane, & this year I got to go.
So here's a little of what was there.
500 quilts & over 50 vendors

 Loved ow the quilting made tho wall hanging sing.

A fun Mary Lou inspired cow quilt.

Grandma hankies & pillow cases make a lovely memory quilt.

The next 3 pictures are great examples of modern, what I call "divide & conquer", quilting.

A stunning winner. 

Another one. Knocked it out park piecing & quilting. 

They award ribbons to the machine quilter of award winning quilts.

Made me smile.

More fab piecing & quilting.

Love the modern quilting. Divide & conquer.

Ideas for future quilting. Freehand with stencils.

More modern inspiration.

Just because I liked it.

Save the date for 2015!
October 16-17-18
Will I see you there?
Here's a link to the WSQ Spokane Chapter.

Mr S & I made a long weekend of our trip to the quilt show. Ate at several Diners, Drive Ins & Dives restaurants & this great find(Thank you Wanda) Twigs. Made a quick stop at Grand Coulee Dam & drove over the North Cascade Highway coming home.

I've been busy quilting away here.
I'll catch up soon.

Cedar Boughs & Seahawks

Sally made this great Seahawk quilt using the Freeze Frame pattern by Roxanne Carter.

I quilted Honeycomb on it. Love the texture.

I think this is a Turning Twenty pattern. Cedar bows & cross hatch on this quilt Jonne made.

Mr S & I went to Spokane for a couple days. He is a fan of Diners, Drive Ins & Dives. We ate at a few of them while we were there. For me the highlight was the WSP Spokane Quilt Show. I'll show & tell in my next post. 500 quilts.

Be back soon.
