It must be spring, although we lost an hour last weekend the extra day light has made a huge difference.
Winter is refusing to let go of its grip and we found ourselves under a winter snow warning Tuesday night. We received about 25 cm of snow and the windchill’s were brutal in the -30C range. Today has been a beautiful and sunny day and the temps are looking promising for the coming week. I’m very ready to get my hands in the soil again 🙂
I finally finished the customer quilt that was on my machine for the last few weeks.
There’s something about the back of a custom quilt job, its always a surprise to me when I see it laid out.
My coworkers quilt is bound I’m just waiting on the label so it can be delivered.
Then it was time for a little fun so I loaded this little quilt and just played, I’m really pleased with how it turned out. I’m going to either make a little something or find a surprise to send to the big sister and then it will be on its way.
you can’t really see the quilting in the picture from the front
We decided to make this quilt abit bigger so today I made and added 12 blocks. They are laid out in my living room and will stay there until I put the top together. My girls and their friends are pretty used to this practice.
I’ve been asked to speak at Quilt Guild about longarm quilting Monday night and show a few of my quilts. I’m not really a front line person but when I’m speaking on something I’m passionate about I really don’t mind.
Work has been very stressful lately, thankfully my quilting helps to ease that stress. I can always tell when I’m at my limit, the quilts start appearing. At one of my most stressful times as a mom I pieced my summer wind quilt and quilted it in 3 days.
