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!

Happy gal!

This is my gorgeous niece Jetta, she's one of the sweetest people I know, that may sound a little biased but it's true! She's a wonderful person and a fantastic mother to three kiddos, two boys and one girl.  She and my sister came to visit recently and she asked me if she could buy one of my quilts. She loved my Confetti waves quilt that I had entered into my local fair.  She and her husband were adamant on buying it and wouldn't accept a family discount, argh! Kids!! Here she is in the standard "burrito style" quilt photo! 

Love her, it was 100 degrees that day!

Shes such a ham! 

I'm so happy that this quilt found a home where I can visit it! Ha! I must be crazy eh! But I have to admit that there are a few of my quilts that I have gifted or sold that I really miss!

Making progress...

Making progress SLOWLY that is...on this quilt top!

Its called "Urban Candy" and uses the 
"Quick curve Ruler".  Its a time consuming little project.

This is being made for a coworker, she bought the fabrics, they are Organic (wooo weee!) and they are such pretty prints! I paired them with some
Joanns Country Classics gray, I'm really loving it!

Its now sewn into rows....time to trim the rows and then get them sewn into a quilt top...progress progress!!!
