Egyptian Quilt

Check out this cool Egyptian quilt, original design by Barb, that i picked up yesterday:


and a close up of her center section:


This quilt is a special gift for her husband, Lewis.  Now to start sketching what i plan to do on it- quilting wise.  Yes, I will workin some Egyptian designs into the quilt,  in case you were wondering.

Jack update:  We babysat Jack last night, he is so blasted adorable- though I might be biased!  Here is a recent picture of him eating out at a restaurant:


He looks just like my son did at this age, but he has his own personality.

Enjoy your autumn/spring day, depending on which side of the globe you live on.  Hugs, Carla

Slashed Poppy quilt

Here’s a poppy quilt I pieced for myself one day when I was feeling like I never get to piece quilt fabric together. Haven’t named it yet… the colors appeal to me though. It is loaded and ready to quilt now:

I started with a large piece of the poppy fabric. I laid it out, slashed it, then added black strips to the mix. Some pieces I swapped with colorful batiks. Threw on an interesting border and I’m done. Now I loaded it for the machine quilting. I added an interesting border just for the heck of it.

While I was hunting for supplies, I came across a mini quilted top that I did a while ago. Actually, I was just doodling:

That’s all for now Just click on the image to see it better.
