Fracture quilt

Finished quilting my Mom's fracture quilt. 
I'm sure she will be glad to finally have it back (I've had it for quite a while).

Whole cloth feathers

I took a class in Grand Rapids, MI in Aug with Sue Nickels. 
When I got home, I made this project. 
I used variegated Aurifil thread on a silk/cotton blend fabric. 
I made this on my domestic Pfaff machine.

A10 in progress

It's 11:30 pm and I am working on A10. 
I think it is time to call it quits for the night before I make a silly mistake. 
I'll be dreaming of the block finishing flat...

New Threads - Longarm quilting

I received my shipment of Threads from Fil-Tec this morning. 
Now it is time to have some fun! 
I am going to quilt this fractured flower quilt top made by my Mom.

Welcome to my blog! 

Along with a few friends I am making a Dear Jane quilt. Here are some photos of the first block and first flag. The blocks are 4 1/2" square.
