Getting finished before heading to Greece!

Yes - tomorrow I'll be on my way to Greece - via Frankfurt - I'm always amazed at how small the world is now with air travel and internet.  I'll be able to keep in touch will all my family and friends just as if I was at home in my jammies . . . but - I'll be in Greece!!!

I had a few quilts to finish before heading off -

Sherri's Stack and Whack Kaleidescope quilt - made with Laurel Burch fabrics - it was pretty wild!  I quilted it with Glide thread - freehand swirls (cat tails) in the kaleidescope, and swirls in the sashings and borders.

Sherri's Kaleidescope - wow!

 Next up was a totally different quilt - a very country home-like nine-patch variation made by Barb.  I quilted it with Wonderfil Konfetti Thread (100% cotton) and Garden Frills panto (Jodi Beamish)

Barb's Quilt - love the home like country feel

Barb's Quilt hanging with Freeda - I'm loving the way the studio is looking today!
Here are two of  Heather's quilts - the first is such a beautiful teal color arrangement - there was a lot of "busy" fabric in this quilt, so the quilting just gave it the right amount of texture.  Fil-tec glide thread; Taro panto

Heather's second quilt was more Autum-like colors - how beautiful!  Light custom with different fills in the blocks and sashings; feather borders; Glide Thread

Oops, a little off centre but you get the idea!

and last up for a few weeks . . . . Louise's Hawaiian quilt - made for her friend  whose favorite place is Hawaii . .  . I used Glide Lemon Ice thread just to give texture - and my new favorite panto - Clematis by - you guessed it - Jodi Beamish!  I have to say, Jodi has a great selection of panto designs!  This pattern looks like a great way to use those scraps that we just can't part with . . .so simple, but sooooo effective!

WOW - no wonder I'm tired!  So tomorrow I'm off to Greece - an amazing step back in time - and looking forward to a wonderful time! 

 Until I return, στην υγειά σας from the Little House!!!
