BJ's Quilt

The past week has been very busy, young Matthew here, a family party or two and a little health issue! Then when I wanted to blog, Blogger kept telling me that I was "not the author of any blogs"! Hmm, last time I checked I maintained two blogs, the other one gets much less attention, it's for the Colorado Chapter of "Home Of The Brave Quilt Project ". I need to put a link in my side bar from this blog, there is a link to the website but that's very out of date as I have no one to help me with the HTML.

This is the first of BJ's quilts to be "professionally" quilted and she is very excited.

It's a really pretty quilt and in keeping with the organic nature of the fabrics I chose to quilt a meandering leafy vine in the main body and a leaf border.
The thread is Superior Sew Fine in a light green and the batting 100% Hobbs cotton.
BJ stopped by to pick it up after work and has challenged herself to complete the binding by Saturday when our AZ Huggy Bunch gathers again.

Last Saturday BJ,Lauren and I sewed and I finished the shams to go with the red,white and black quilt I gave to my brother recently- I used a scrappy D9P second generation design.
I have to mail these off to Australia.

You have to be on the "right" email address to access your Dashboard and post to your blog. I've done the same thing. If you have more than one address it will only show your Dashboard on the one that you use for your blog. Crazy.
Beautiful quilt and shams...

Lovely quilting on BJ's floral quilt, and the shams are marvelous. Just starting a red & white quilt, myself, for a cousin's wedding gift. :D
