Honestly, I dont know why I think these poodles are so flipping cute but I do!

So proud of this finish!



Its done!  Yay! 

 Some of you all remember a while back in February, my girlfriend Julie and I took a quilting class to learn how to use the "Quick Curve Ruler".  The pattern we did was 
called "Urban Candy". We had a blast taking the class together!


Julie made a quilt for her daughter all in purples...it turned out pretty darn good, this picture will give you an idea of her colors, I cant seem to loaate a picture of the finished quilt!


I did mine in these gorgeous Limes, Blues and Purples for a coworker...


I got it all layed out and pieced finally with some moral support from Julie, some days I dont know what I would do if she wasnt here to sew with me!  


Then I got it on the longarm!  I quilted it with my free motion loopy loops, Woot Woot!


Heres the finished quilt....I LOVE IT and so does the recipient!!! The colors are so rich, its just gorgeous!


Beautiful!!!


Jillian, the recipient said she can't wait to wrap herself up in it!  I'm so glad that she loves it as much as I do!

So, just a question for you all.....is it me or does it seem like the bigger a pain in the butt a pattern is, the more you like the quilt when it is done? This always happens to me.....does it happen you to also???

Amador County Fair 2016


I decided to enter the Amador County Fair this year.  It is in the next county over
from us.  Its a darling little country fair, lots of fresh flowers and animals.  I decided to enter
my Grandaugher Kamryns Rainbow quilt and my English Toffee.  I took the day off of
work and watched the judging for all of the baked goods and candies.  It was very educational, the judge was the cutest 94 year old woman.  She tasted every last thing, and no shocker here, she loved my toffee!!!  I got first place and best of Division!

 Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! Yea baby!


I also got a second place ribbon for Kamryns Rainbow quilt! That's my little sweetheart
Kamryn in the picture with me.  I can't tell you how shocked and happy
I am to receive a ribbon for one of my quilts, I only quilt for fun!!


So fun!  I will definitely enter again next year!!

A blue beauty!

I was gifted a quilt top by a coworker, she insisted that she didn't want me to give it back. I thought "ok", that's a little crazy in my book but OK!  It's all done in beautiful purples and blues, it's gorgeous and reminds me of water! I still say she's crazy but her loss is my gain!!

I recently got it on the Longarm and quilted in free motion swirls. I got the swirls pretty uniform and it came out great!  I really think it gave the quilt some motion, like waves, really liking it!





I don't know the name of the pattern but it looks like steps!


It's ready to be trimmed and bound! Yippee!
