More Show and Tell

This is Lydia's version of Sparkle Punch that I just quilted for her.  I love her sense of color.  It's such a fun quilt front AND back!  She used up most of her leftovers by piecing them for the backing.  Isn't it wonderful?!  The quilting pattern is called Blackberry.  It has lots of movement and the spiky pattern looks good with the star points, doesn't it.  

This is a sample I did for a new gadget I have for my machine called a Groovy Board. It lets you make perfect baptist fans even though my machine does not have a computer program hooked up to it.  I think it came out very nicely for a first try and I can't wait to use it on a real project very soon.  If you want me to quilt this for you let me know!

My sister-in-law made this quilt top and I quilted it for her using a Robison-Anton thread that's called a super bright polyester.  It's finer than what I usually use but I thought it would be just right for this quilt since the blue ginkgo fabric has a metallic line running through it.  I love the way it turned out.  She hasn't seen it yet, I've got to put it in the mail tomorrow.  

Up close it's easier to see the pattern.  It's called Mandarin Lace.  
Well, the weather has gotten quite nasty again this afternoon and I was glad to be able to get my errands done in the morning so I could stay home the rest of the day.  Hope you are staying safe and warm...and that maybe you have time to sew today!
