Georgia's Blue Batik Stars

Georgia made this beautiful batik quilt.  I love how the stars twinkle in and out of the lovely fabrics she chose.  It was quilted with the circuit path design.

Kathy's Graduation Quilt

This beautiful quilt was made for Kathy's grandson's graduation from military school.  Kathy got the pattern for this quilt from the Joyful Quilter quilt shop.  They had a veteran's quilt display a couple of months ago and offered patterns for some, maybe all, of the quilts shown.  Isn't her back great too!

Marylyn's Iris

This beautiful appliqué and pieced quilt belongs to Marylyn.  She's moving to Florida in a few weeks and wanted me to custom quilt one of her quilts before leaving.  This was a difficult quilt to come up with a quilting plan for since there were all those odd white spaces.  She said she liked feathers so I tried to incorporate some of those.  She was happy with the result as was I.

Quilts and Feis Dress

It certainly has been a long time since I posted anything!  Thanks to Sharon L. for poking me to do so.  Since I last posted, I started a long arm quilting business, Stitch By Stitch.  I hope to add some pictures of quilts that I've quilted for others in this blog.

Here is one of Sharon's recent quilts that I quilted for her.  I love the fresh colors in this quilt and the design Sharon selected is just perfect!

Here is another of Sharon's quilts from a while ago.  Love the X's and O's!  Thanks for letting me quilt for you Sharon!

In addition to quilting, I completed another feis dress for my ever growing granddaughter.   She and I went to the fabric district in NYC to pick out fabrics.  She had a big hand in designing this dress.  Next time I'm going to make her sew some too.

This picture was taken before the bling was added to the back.  And here's the lovely Meg modeling her new dress before it's inaugural dance!

I've done a lot more quilts since my last post so I plan to gradually add more in. 

Until next time, go sew something!
