Surgery ... and a little time off

Monday, November 17, 2014

I have so many sweet ladies that bring me their quilts and I'm so appreciative for your business. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!! For those of you that I haven't seen in the last month, I want to let you know that I'm taking a little break, hopefully just a couple of weeks, to have a much needed hysterectomy. With any luck, I will be back quilting by the middle of December. I already have a couple of quilts penciled into my schedule the first part of December and once I get caught up, I will be ready for more.

I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving! This will be the first year in a long time that I don't cook a nice dinner. The one dish my family is going to miss is cranberry jello salad. Gosh, my mouth is watering just thinking about it!

Jaybird Quilts - Hex n More Ruler

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

I recently had the opportunity to quilt this beautiful quilt (quilted in "Swirls" by Circle Lord) made with Jaybird Quilt's ruler called Hex n More. I'd heard of their Side Kick ruler as our LQS, Thimble Town, has had a few strip classes using it, but I hadn't heard of the Hex n More. The piecing was really well done on this quilt, with the points all nice and matched up, and there were a LOT of points -- the quilt was king size!
Look at the cute little fussy-cut frog. Adorable!!
One of my favorite things about quilting for others is seeing different fabrics and patterns. And different techniques and learning about new rulers that I wouldn't have otherwise known about. In looking at the piecing, you would think there are lot of Y-seams or set-in seams in this quilt pattern, but I don't think there were any thanks to the ruler's technology. It's definitely an interesting ruler and technique, and I love how an old-fashioned hexagon design can look so modern, hip, and fun!

Mammie Quilt

Sunday, October 26, 2014

One of my gals brought me this little mammie quilt earlier this year. She tells me her husband calls it the alien quilt. LOL A few months after she picked it up, she gave it away to a friend and then made another.
So now I have its cousin here to quilt. Thankfully, I took a picture of the first one, because I thought I remembered how I quilted the first one but the picture on my phone is contrary to my memory!!
