Back into Quilting Full Speed Ahead

For a couple of weeks on my list has been to make a blog post. 


Today I'm at it!


I'll not bore you with everything that's been going on since the last post, but I'll show just a couple of completions to date.


First, I'd had two quilts at a quilter for months!  I couldn't get a response from her and I thought I'd lost them forever.  I was sick.  She finally responded and I GOT THEM BACK.


This one went to a friend from Canada, that I've known for years.  He came here recently to visit his mother, and I was able to present this quilt to him in person!





I had searched the internet for a pattern using principles of the Golden Mean, which had lots of meaning to him.  I found a kit on Jinny Beyer Studio and bought the kit.  Thank goodness I got it back because the kit is no longer available.  The pattern still is available though and it is called Da Vinci.



This next quilt is one I've blogged about and it was a long time in the making.  I would have had it quilted differently, but the quilter just because of her guilt at having the quilts so long, just chose a pattern for the quilting and finished it.  I'm so glad to have it back that it doesn't matter.  I still need to bind it, but I put it on my bed to see what it looks like.  I'm thrilled.  It was to be for my granddaughter, but I made her another when this one was "lost."

This is the quilt I finished for granddaughter.  She's a fan of Minkee fabric on the back, so that's what I did. She loves it.

Yesterday I spent the day in a class with Phillipa Naylor.  It was without a doubt the best class I've been to.  I'll blog more about it later...


Good it be back into full swing!
