Looking forward to 2014!



HAPPY NEW YEAR!  I hope everyone has recovered from the busy holiday season and ready to get back to their normal routines.  As I looked back on the quilting part of my life from 2013 - I can honestly say - whew . . . busy, busy, busy!  And that's OK - but I also realized that I missed posting a few quilts.  If I've missed yours (even now) I'm really sorry - sometimes they leave the studio before I get a picture - but I truly enjoy each and every one.

Here is a few that I missed posting . . .


Chris's Sock Monkey Quilt - isn't it the cutest???


Chris's Sock Monkey - peek-a-boo!


Diane's musical notes quilt

Diane's Musical Notes Quilt - Effervescence Panto; Glide Thread; - really works well

 
 
The colours in this next quilt are way off (took the pic on my phone) - it really is a beautiful deep brown tone . . . 
Sheena's Hopscotch Quilt - beautiful flannels  El Passo Panto

Sheena's Hopscotch Quilt - El Passo Panto 
Sheena also did another Hopscotch quilt in purple tones - but sorry, no picture :(

Remember when I went to Greece in June - well I made this quilt for my friends who were just the most gracious hosts and "tour guides" for us while we were there. 

Mikonos Pattern

That's all the pictures I have on my camera right now - but like I said, I think I have missed a few.

The first quilt of 2014 was finished today - here's a peek . . . I'll post more about that late in the week.




and . . . . I've just purchased a Quiltazoid . . . which is a fancy name for quilting templates - that can make the most amazing designs . . .

like this, for example . . . (not my pics, by the way) . . .

I am looking forward to playing with it, and seeing what I can create - it doesn't take the place of pantos or freehand quilting, just another "tool" to use to enhance the quilts.



Wishing you all the best in the coming year - 2014 already feels good!
