The fabrics are from Kaffe Fassett's collection (except the back). The quilting is very close and dense - should make for a soft quilt after washing.
I've also made up a few table runners. Some inspired by Japanese zen gardens (sand raking) with rows and rows of stitches at about 1/4" apart.
And playing with shot cotton - woven beauties - to created this long runner.
I've been able to get a lot of sewing done over the past couple weeks, but am going to launch back into an overtime vigil tomorrow with my job, so will have to cut back on the quilting fun.

I'm working on keeping those stitches more uniform size... and other than that it's just fun to go totally free-style!

We returned this week from a road trip to Minnesota, where we attended a wedding and visited with my husbands extended family. Here are a couple photos...
We parked our motor home on about 4 acres of cut grass by a lake. The above picture is of the early morning fog over the water and the sky is tinted with the sunrise. The Jack pack loved running on the grass.

I made some with matching quilts too...
gave one, sold two, and put the rest on etsy.
They were fun time-passers for me as my sweetie was on his 4th annual visit to Alaska to see his brothers and fish for Halibut with them. He brought home a good bit of it, but it was very hard work - from the stories!
Smiles to all
and I hope your summer
is going GREAT!

This first picture is of Whiskey. We were up on the Little Grays River in Wyoming, just out of Alpine, which is about 50 miles south of Jackson Hole. Beautiful country. Whiskey had gotten in the water and was ready to climb in the vehicle with the heat on.
The next picture is Annie and Jackie, in the vehicle after exploring. They are trying to convince us to let them in the front. They were unsuccessful.
