Bloggers Quilt Festival 2016

Thank you Amy  from for hosting again this year.

This year I am entering my Slice of Sunshine in the hand quilting category.  This quilt was inspired by an older lady whom I used to hand quilt for.  She was getting so she couldn't work at quilts much anymore, and called me one day to see if I would take some things she had. So, away I went to see what she was talking about...thinking 'someone can use it'.

She had some quilt magazines and lots of wonderful fabric!!! I noticed that she had the page turned down for this one and fabric to go with it.  So....what else could I do?  Here is my "Slice of Sunshine"....

This quilt is made with Kona black and Batiks...measure 801/2 inches square.
Close up of the hand quilting in gold thread.....doesn't look gold here, but I purposely used gold so it would stand out with that little isn't doing any good here.

Rainy Monday

Now,  a rainy Monday would usually get me down...but we are getting some much needed rain today.
The view from my living room window an hour ago...actually raining harder than it looks too!
Now, the view in my living
This is the customer quilt I am hand quilting this week. Love this is so soft and suits the girly hearts being quilted in the border.  Very busy with quilts right the garden comes almost to an end.
Lots of tomatoes to stew, potatoes to dig in a couple of weeks...then wood to get in for winter!!!
You know what they say....a woman's work is never done....yes!!!!!  Best time for our annual community turkey supper...right?  Oct. 1st. We will serve about 600 at our community hall between 3 and 7pm.
Well, back to quilting.....

A Nice Day with a Friend

Well, I started my day as usual.....breakfast and opening my shop. Then my friend Connie called and asked if I wanted to go to the quilt show in Quispamsis.  Ok........I did say no at first, busy busy busy!!
That didn't last long...a few minutes later I called her back...I'm We had a great day looking at all of the quilts, having lunch and a very nice drive on a sunny day. We ran into a group of friends that we get together for sewing days with too...always nice.

Now back to  Well, I have finished hand quilting this Double Irish Chain for a friend.  
I have 4 or 5 quilts ahead of me right now, waiting for hand quilting and some need more piecing.
One is a memory quilt to be made from the bridal is next on the list. And the next one to be hand quilted is a disappearing nine patch. So first of next week will be busy again.  For now, I have to bind the Irish Chain.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
