Surprise!

Last week I spent all of Tuesday quilting another heart practice quilt.  I really wanted it done, because I was leaving for Road2CA the next morning, and didn't want to come back trying to figure out where I'd left off, never mind being out of the groove!

I left it unrolled so it wouldn't wrinkle, yet still pinned in case I had missed something.  When I walked into my studio Saturday morning, I was greeted with all this wonderful texture!  Damn, that looks awesome!
Even though it's a rather plain jane quilt, the quilting is really cool!  


Now, I have to thank Judi Madsen of Green Fairy Quilts as my source of inspiration.  She does absolutely stunning workSpeaking of Judi, the horse quilt she quilted for Jan was at Road2CA, and what a beautiful quilt.  You can see pictures of it here.

In regards to Road2CA, what a great show!  The quilts were stunning, the classes were worth it, and it was just awesome to spend time surrounded by all the quilty stuff!
Took classes with Dawn Cavanaugh, Deloa Jones, and Cathy Wiggins.  Met Renae Haddadin, Eleanor Burns, Emily Cier, and another of my favorite quilters, Angela Walters.  An absolutely fun time--I highly recommend going!

Happy Quilting!

  1. LOVE what you've done. Especially the way you've continued the quilting in the plain blocks. It is simply spectacular!

    I need to remember to think outside the box myself. Wonderful quilting, as you've done, usually occurs to me AFTER I've finished the quilt. :-)

  2. That is beautiful! I love the circles and lines. Might have to try that on a quilt I am working on at the moment.
