In my last blog I mentioned that I was getting a barrage of extremely large quilt tops to quilt.  And I promised to show you the one currently on my machine.  Well, here it is.


This quilt really was a Gentle Giant.  Do you see all of those pieces in every block?  Well, that could spell disaster.  But this quilt was as close to perfectly pieced as I have ever seen.  And it was pressed perfectly, as well.  Every seam was pressed down nice and flat.  The borders were flat as a fritter too!...  And guess what????  The backing was a tie-died flannel, aanNnDDddd (drum roll, please) was a wide backing so there were no seams to consider when loading it.  Even better than the fact that it was a wide back was that it was a SQUARED back.  I didn't have to even consider picking up my rotary cutter and ruler (sigh)..  If only all jobs were this pleasant!
Thanks to Shawnee for being so conscientious about her quilt construction.  It was a dream to quilt this really large top.  And that is why I have deemed it the 'Gentle Giant'.

Celtic, I Think?

This is a wall hanging that a quilted for a client.  She didn't tell me the name of the pattern.  But I think it looks kind of Celtic.  What do you think?

Opportunity Quilt 2013

This is our Opportunity Quilt for 2013.  It was pieced by the endlessly creative ladies of the Lick Skillet Quilt Guild, Oxford, Alabama.  It is beautiful, bright colors with some hand appliqué too!  I would like to thank them for the chance to quilt this lovely.  It was fun!
You can leave a message for me here if you would like to purchase an opportunity to win this 'gawjus' quilt!  I can totally hook you up.

Might I just add...Thanks to these ladies for their constant inspiration....Angela Walters, Lisa Sipes and Judi Madsen....
