In the mean time, I've been steadily cranking out the quilts at the studio ....
Anyone remember this Thimbleberries BOM from years ago? Guidel had this for a while - and now just wanted it quilted - you understand, one less thing on her to do list! I quilted it using Wisteria panto (Urban Elementz) and Wonderfil Konfetti cotton thread top; Superior bottom line in the bobbin. I have to say, I had a few problems with "pokies" in the backing - Guidel used a grey/black flannel back and the white batting really came through. I'm thinking it was the poor weave of the backing fabric - but whatever the cause, she was happy with the end result and this quilt will actually get bound and on a bed before winter!

Brenda put together this shop sample for Addie's - it's a great combination of colors, don't you think! The fabric is the Wilderness Lodge fabric by Studio-E. It's quilted using Taro panto; Glide thread

Maggie is an excellent piecer - as is evident in her Kansas Troubles sampler quilt. This is going to be a gift for her brother. Each square is quilted differently, leaves in the sashings, swirls and twists in the borders - I'm really partial to Kansas Troubles fabrics!

I've been busy quilting for "Quilts for Calgary" - once they are all done I'll post pictures for you! There are some beautiful quilt tops that have been donated by such generous quilters.
