Catching Up

Between quality time with the baby Matthew, three trips to Algodones to the dentist [400 miles round trip each time] a session with the local A-1 rep to adjust my long arm machine and some actual quilting, I haven't had time to blog about it all!
I have another of Andee's quilts to show- that Andee is a prolific quilter and since she had a bit of a shopping spree at the Shop Hop on Saturday no doubt she will be turning out even more quilts!

I think this one looks very Provence-like, the colors are quite lovely.

It's custom quilted with the spineless longarm feathers and graceful swirls and gentle curves.

Aren't the fabrics beautiful?

I have one more quilt on the LA that I plan to finish before we leave Thursday- we are flying to Boston for DH's 50th. HS reunion[ he's an old guy you know, LOL!]

Stop by my blog if you have a chance. I'm having a little giveaway.

Beautiful feather quilting! The fabrics are really luscious too.

Have fun at the reunion...Dan really enjoyed his and even actually recognized some people! (I found that hard to believe!)

Gorgeous quilt! Lovely fabrics and a nice design. Your feathers are beautiful Ros. Although my FMQ has been put on hold for awhile, feathers are one of my favorites. I enjoy making them and looking at others' feathers. They were a perfect choice for that red border.

Yet another quilt I am very happy with! Not sure I will be able to part with it Ros! You do such nice work! THANKS!

Oh my gosh, 400 miles.. that would do me in. Your quilts are absolutely gorgeous. QUESTION: Do you sell long arm services? If so, to what size in inches? Hugs. tammy

LOL! I was looking at your photo as the page loaded ( it's loading slow today for some reason) and I was thinking that the photo looks like you're in your 40's! So I didn't bat an eye when I read that it was your husbands' 50th coming up - until I read the HS reunion part!

What a gorgeous quilt - I love simply everything about it!
I'm saving my pennies so I can buy a quilt for myself, when I finally get home! ;)
