I still have about a dozen of the quarter square triangle blocks to do, but I am calling it a day…beautiful here in West Michigan and I need to take advantage of it :-)
Judy’s Cherry Basket quilt is off…
And her stars quilt is on…
The weather has turned quite chilly in West Michigan today…I know it won’t last, but I can’t help feeling I should be making a pot of chili and an apple pie :-)
Judy’s Cherry baskets quilt – Judy chose Baptist Fan for this and dark red thread.
Off the machine today is Shelia’s Notre Dame quilt – this number 4 and the last of the football throws she is making for gifts
This quilt was inherited by the client from her mother-in-law. She is a non-quilter and is having me finish the binding as well. It’s a large one! 100×100 – Hobbs 80/20 batting and Superior Omni thread in Bahama Sand
There were a few issues with fullness that the client is aware of and are mostly resolved. I will see if I can explain the fix in a later post :-)
Linda’s bright, pieced top. Freehand large swirls – Hobbs 80/20 batting and Superior Omni thread in yellow
And new old scissors! These belonged to my husband’s great aunt who was a draper. They are Marks 10″ shears made in Brazil. They need sharpening and tightening so if any one knows a really good person to take care of that for me I would appreciate the info. I understand that scissor sharpening is an art and I want it done right :-)
And here’s the West Michigan Quilters’ Guild raffle quilt – tickets available at the show!
Here are a couple of detail pics from before it left my studio –

AQS Grand Rapids this week – Weds through Sat. so I will be out of the studio those days. Hope to see a lot of familiar faces at the show :-)
