April Showers

Bring May Flowers!!

Seriously people. Its been raining quilts at my house. And fabric. Its EVERYWHERE!!!

I have been working on some super secret projects that I am getting really excited about sharing. Things have also picked up at work, so at least April was kind enough to wave as it flew by.

I hit 60 days in QDAD on the first. That was a cool milestone for me. I can’t believe I have managed 2 designs a day for a whole 60 days. Mind you, not every one is a winner, or even really feasible as a quilt (4000 piece pixel quilt? Yeah, I don’t think so)

Not quite 4000 pieces, so doable?

But there are some very good designs that might just make it into pattern form. Pattern writing is something I am getting quite good at 😉

Pattern Anyone?

One finish I CAN share today is my Modern Metallic Challenge Quilt. I called it Ivy Garden. I love how this one turned out. I quilted it on Joan Nicholson’s long arm. SHe is a fantastic quilter, and rents out the back of Maybelline one you have taken her class. I used a curvy floral panto for the quilting that softens out all the pointy edges. This is a new favorite of mine that might end up as a Christmas gift for someone (she knows who she is and is squealing with delight as we speak lol)

I hope everyone has a Happy May! This month is going to be filled with quilts, weddings, and Quilt Market going ons.

 

Happy Stitching!
