Custom for Jennifer

Jennifer sent me these 2 quilts that had lots of wide open spaces or "quilting opportunities" as I like to call them.

To help break it up I quilted circles around the little stars.

This Lone Star was a UFO that had been in her to do stack for awhile. It was a "divide & conquer" kind of quilt.

I love quilting leaves & this quilt gave me plenty of opportunities to leaf away.

Taking time to do my 2 favorite things. 

Enjoy time with The Little Misters at , in D's words, "the Camano Ocean."
No, that's not snow on the logs it's ice.

Sunrise & sunset are always a joy in my little corner of the world. I'm not always up to see the sunrise. Here's one from October that reminds me I am living a very blessed life. The Cascade mountain range is a perfect backdrop!

Be back soon.

The T-shirt Quilt Summer

I'm still here. Not sure where the time goes. How about you?

I made 3 t-shirt quilts over the summer. I'll post about the other 2 later.

This one is Regan's. He has played baseball forever & his Mom, Ginger, saved all his jerseys & t-shirts from the beginning. Ginger was my neighbor in my previous Mrs. S life. The best neighbor you could ask for & funny. Her Thanksgiving turkey tried out for the Olympics one year. It did a full gainer as it came out of the oven.

I quilted something different in each square. It was fun to do.

I did this on the back of quilts I made for The Little Misters & like the personal touch it gives a quilt.

Here they are Ginger & Regan. 

I'm going to try & make appearances here more often. Life's been a bit of a roller coaster ride. I feel like I'm on the merry-go-round now, which is a good thing.
