Well since graduating in December I have been busy finishing up some projects that I actually started before I started back to college.   No certain order to them…just what struck my fancy to be working on at the time. 

This is a pre-printed panel that I added the borders and quilting to.  I LOVE the colors in this.  I have two of these if you want to buy one!!  Then I have two more similar panels with the same picture (not this picture) and different borders.  They were fun to do. 



 This is a Maggie Walker design.  I love her designs but don’t know that I’ll ever do another one as they are very intensive.  Beautiful but intensive!!  I started this as a hand applique project and on the third dog I realized some of the pieces were really really tiny…like noses and toenails.  So I ended up doing a lot of fused applique and raw edge applique and added a lot of free motion thread work on it.

I call this Amish Sampler.  I pieced this a couple of years ago when I got my longarm machine in order to practice my stitching.  There is some free motion stitching and some following a stencil design.  It was good practice.

   

This is called Eagle Dancer.  It was a block of the month from Southwest Designs.  There are a LOT of embellishments and dimensional work on this.  I decided not to quilt it heavily because I didn’t want to detract from the design.  All those feathers on the center block are two-sided and stand out a little bit.  It looks a LOT better in person.  Come over and I’ll show it to you!

So now I’m working on a log cabin.   One of the girls that I graduated with named Amanda does these wonderful pen and ink drawings that are stunning!  Since I couldn’t afford to buy one of them we decided to trade.  I’m making her a quilt and she’s doing this drawing for me.  I can’t wait to see it.  So that’s what I’m working on right now.  I still have lots of UFO’s to finish.  For those non-quilt people that means Unfinished Objects.  Some people call them PIPs for Project in Progress.  Either way – they are gonna get done!!
