My plan for taking most of the summer off has not happened. Saying that, we did have a great two weeks to the Grand Canyon and we go away again next week for Boy2s grad trip. To get to take all this time off, I've been working what seems like double time in the studio. And with beauties like these, I don't mind.
How about this gorgeous quilt by Nancy?

The pictures don't show it, but most of the fabrics had sparkle in them. I loved this quilt!

Thanks for keeping me out of trouble ladies! ;)
I've been spending more time card making than quilting lately. Earlier this year, a girlfriend moved away so I made her some cards for a going away gift. All my other girlfriends requested that for a birthday gifts this year as a result lol.
One birthday was last week and before I knew it, I had 12 cards finished to wrap up for her birthday.
Homemade gifts are the best gifts!
Yesterday was my mom's birthday. I saw a quilt a few months ago that I wanted to make for her. I gave her the fabric requirements so she could pick the fabrics from her stash and I started sewing.

This is such an easy and fun quilt to put together! The pattern can be found here.
I love how the quilting pulls it all together.
I debated about what to use for the binding. Once I sewed the black print on, I second guessed using it but it was/is the perfect choice.
Now I need to find some time to make one for me.
Wouldn't it look fabulous in Christmas prints?
I haven't really felt like sewing yesterday but the other night, I had to sew! I had a charm pack and felt it was the best way to 'test the waters' lol.
Pattern is based on this Moda Bake Shop pattern.
I used one charm pack and it made a really long runner. Really, really long lol.
Now to decide how to quilt it!
This is another of the grad quilts I did this year. This quilt was completely inspired by a client quilt(posted about here). When I was quilting this quilt, my client came in and I told her she had inspired me. Actually, it was her quilt that got me wanting to do all the grad quilts this year.
Anyway, here it is.
I absolutely adore the Persimmion fabric line and wow, was it ever hard finding enough fabric to make this happen!
I absolutely love the quilting pattern on this quilt. I was originally worried it would be too much squares but it works perfectly.

The recipient, his favorite colour is yellow so I focused on more of the yellow and browns in this fabric line. It worked out well since there isn't a lot of this line left anywhere to choose from!
