I've been lucky enough to play with some fabulous client quilts lately.
This one by Sharlene, love, love, love the batiks.
She chose the ever popular, Greenery panto which looks fabulous.
This super cute one for Hamels Quilt Shop.

It was a holiday weekend here; so weird that it is already the unofficial kick-off to summer. Certainly hasn't felt nice enough until recently.
I did manage to get a few things worked on.
One of my favorite baby quilt patterns. So fast and so cute. Too bad they had a boy lol.
That inner border is actually a navy blue print; not nearly as dark as in the picture.
I played a bit more with some of my Swoon leftovers.
Popular opinion seems to be to add some sashings; I'll keep you posted.
I also found a bag full of 2.5inch squares of Hello Luscious.
But this is all you get to see for now ;)
More fun with words.
Something fun to fill an empty space on the wall :)
I had enough leftovers from a quilt a few years ago; such a great fabric line.
Quilted it with my favourite panto for table runners, Paisley Max.
I love these colours; I should have hoarded more of this fabric!
I absolutely l-o-v-e how it turned out.
Absolute perfection in my opinion.
I had an idea for the quilt. I wanted to keep it simple and once I saw a sneak peek of babies room, I was on my way.
The quilting softens up the hard lines.

The binding was a little darker than I had hoped but it still worked well.
And I've finally reached the end of the bolt on my favourite flannel.
This is a long over due post. And in more ways than one ;)
I had been promising Boy4 a new bed quilt for a while. A long while. I cut it out, got sidetracked. Started some blocks, got sidetracked. I finally carved out some time and got it finished.
I had originally had a whole different colour scheme planned but he asked to go pick the fabrics and this is what he came up with.

The quilt is a bit of an odd size. it's quite long but he wanted it a specific length so I kept making blocks until it was right :)
I love how the backing is the perfect compliment.
And he loves even more that it is finally finished.
We had a great Easter long weekend. I was able to spend some time with my sewing machine but not as much as I wanted.
I'm about halfway through assembling my Swoon quilt blocks.
And I learned that it doesn't matter how many times you've made a Swoon block, you need to use your full attention.
I love how the block looks square instead of round. All it took was an HST in the wrong spot.
And I picked up a few new temptations.
I did not mean to disappear for so long. The weirdest thing happened, my computer did a update. Normally not a big deal. But this time? The boys Xbox Live updated at the same time. When they changed the password, since my email is tagged to their account, I was completely locked out of my computer.
I did have keep busy though
I had one or two things to keep me occupied
I even played with some old friends
And sometimes other thought they were helping
It's good to be back
Is in full swing here and there isn't a lot of sewing going on lol.
But I have been keeping busy lately quilting and since it has been too long since I've shown some client quilts, here we go!
Up first, this gorgeous quilt Cindy made for her daughter's 16th birthday.
The straight line quilting was the perfect choice.
I love the fabrics Sherri used in this quilt.

This quilting pattern has quickly become one of my favourites.
This is Nikki's second quilt ever.
