A look around my quilt studio...

I recently rearranged things in my quilt studio, so took the opportunity to take a few photos of the new arrangement.  It came about when our oldest daughter moved out into her own apartment, thereby opening up some real estate in the house.  Melissa moved her sewing things into our daughter's old bedroom, which allowed me to expand my quilt studio in the basement.  Below are pics.  I'm really liking the extra space and the new layout of the room.  And I found all kinds of things that I forgot I had!

I'll fly away...

Below are pics of a quilt that I recently quilted for a customer.  Lots of flying geese, and I like the gradual shift of colors in the triangle flying geese blocks.  I did a freehand swirling pattern in the sky area to give the feeling of moving air, and then did a leaf pattern in the border area.  This one measures 82" x 102", so was large and took a while.
