And speaking of color....

Here's a quilt with lots of it.  It's one that I just finished quilting for a friend in the guild that I'm in.  Lots of bright colors, and I used lime green thread to quilt it with.  I really like how this one turned out.

Now that's some color...

I'm currently quilting a quilt for a friend, Judy, in the quilt guild that I'm in.  One of the things I like about Judy's quilting style is that she loves color and isn't afraid to use it.  This quilt is a wonderful example of that.  My color schemes tend to be much more muted colors, but I think Judy is about to make a convert out of me.  This quilt has beautiful magenta pinks and lime greens in it and I'm quilting it with a lime green thread as well.  Lots of pop!  The colors reminded me of a mimosa tree and I just happened to have a quilt pattern called "Mimosa" so that's what I decided to use on it.  I think it's turning out really nice, it's becoming one of my favorites.

Paper pieced pin cushion

Here's a pin cushion that I've been working on for several months (yes, months - I'm slow). The top is English paper pieced hexes, made from French General "Rouenneries" fabrics, with focus fabric from Andover. This was the first thing I've ever tried to paper piece, but I wanted to try it to have something to work on by hand when away from the studio. I think I like it, I need to find another hand project now. Even if it takes months, haha.

Currently on the longarm...

Here's a pic of what I'm working on at the moment.  I'm quilting a quilt for a friend in my quilt guild.  It has a lot of different things in the top, sort of like a sampler, so it's a lot of fun to quilt.  Many different types of blocks and piecing, some applique, etc.  So it's fun to decide what to do where and try out some new things on it.
