Quilt Bloggers Festival!!

Here are photos of my latest and favorite quilt to date.

While we were building the studio I had a lot of extra time for research. I have looked at a ton of different quilts and different quilting techniques. I am so excited by the 'Quilt Modern' style. If you don't know what it is you should totally Google it! Simple and classic. Fresh and new. I couldn't wait to try it. So after getting caught up on client quilts (well, almost) I snuck one of my own on the longarm. It is for a sweet young couple expecting their first baby. I know they loved it and I did too. I hated to give it away...but I know it will be used and cherished and I will absolutely be making another one for me!
What do you think? Now back to some more fun in the new studio!!

Today it is cold here in Alabama..and windy.  My thoughts are with those in the path of big, bad ol' Hurricane Sandy.  The weather outlook here could not be better.  Sunny and cool during the day, and dark and cold at night.  Perfect for Halloween night.  Fire in the fireplace, home cooked meal, a bowl full of candy.  A porch full of goblins and ghouls. The smell of charred pumpkin.  Dogs going crazy every time the door bell rings.  I will stay cozy under this...It was a free pattern on the  site a few years back.  The spider was my own addition.  He is fun and a little bit CrAzy!  I am in a Halloween contest over at the Warm Company and you can hop on over here:
and 'like' to vote for my quilt!

I am feeling rather melancholy today.  Quilting in the DoodleMoochie studio and listening to some soothing Celtic music.  Maybe that is it?  The music.  Yes!  I will change my music and maybe that will change my mood.  Yep, that is EXACTLY what I am going to do, change my music!
