We should be back in March, but, you never know - if the space is too tight, I might be back in January! The plan is to enjoy the winter months in Mexico - we just love Mexico - so, the countdown is definitely on. Little House Creations will be closed from Nov 15th to April 1st, 2015. I have 10 customer quilts to complete BEFORE November 15th . . better get at it! You know, I don't seem to have time to quilt my own quilts . . . what's up with that!
Today I delivered (yes, I deliver) three quilts.
The first one is Rose's Dragonfly quilt - it is soooo cute! Rose is an excellent applique/piecer! I made a template from her appliqued dragonflies - quilted that in the white blocks, echoed all the dragonflies and filled in the blocks with 3s and Es. Hobbs 80/20 batting; Glide Thread
Because of the white on white, the quilting really doesn't show in the pictures. I need to have them taken when the sun was shining tangentially on them . . . but it was snowing today - so hope you can get the idea of how this looks . . .
Barb's quilts are just so great to work with. This first one is a simple quilt made with srtips of Zoo like juvenile fabric. Glide Thread - Buttercup; Animal Crackers panto... again, the quilting really doesn't show in these pictures, but the quilts are just so great!
Barb's other quilt is just so up my alley! It was a Block-of-the-Month that Barb had hanging around for quite a long time! I just love these colors and star block combinations! Pansies pantograph; glide thread . . .

When I was quilting this, I thought what a wonderful challenge it would be to custom quilt it . . . but you know, Barb is just so happy with the quilting choice. It's all about what the customer wants . . . and I think this quilt turned out fabulous!
I'll be posting more as I get them back to their owners . . . deadlines, deadlines - from the Little House!
