More Circle Lord fun

Can you tell how much I love having the Circle Lord system? I quilted up two more fun quilts using the boards.

This first one for Hamels Quilt store. Love the Bernstein Bears.

I used the Square Dance boards for this one.

And this lovely quilt by Jean.

Jean requested the Bubbles board for her quilt. A perfect compliment to the quilt design.

Have a lovely Easter weekend!

Crazy 8's

I've been noticing lots of modern quilts quilted with a crazy 8 pattern lately. I love the look and wanted to get in on the fun. I contacted Circle Lord and they made me up not one but TWO boards using this fun pattern. 

Yesterday I decided to give it a go so I pulled out my chevron quilt that Rhonda made me and went for it.

I love the ease of the pattern and even better, how it looks.

This is most certainly a pattern I will use again and again. I have a denser figure 8 that Circle Lord made for me as well that I still need to try but I know it will be another hit.

I've been working hard on a lovely king custom quilt for a local quilt store. I'm not able to show any pictures; I might post a sneak peak when it's done but no full quilt pictures.

I snuck some sewing time for myself while we were away last week and finished this quilt top.

The pattern is from Eleanor Burns book Day and Night Quilt.

Before I started on this custom quilt, I got this lovely quilt for Marie quilted.

The pink and yellow fabric is a lovely textured print.
I love how the quilting shows up on the black.

quilted with Bell Blossom

And I love the flannel she chose for the backing.

Now back to this custom quilt!

Dave and I leave today for a working holiday. And last night while watching the hockey game, I finished the embroidery I bought to work on during the ferry ride.

See you next week.

It was quite a sale

Back in January, Rhonda, had the idea of offering a sale on longarm quilting. The sale was offered until February 28th. Did it ever take off!

This is our quilt closet.

The rack is stuffed full; we had to move it out today and it took two of us to move it lol.

Quilts piled on the floor under the shelving. Quilts stacked on the filing cabinet and on the floor in front.

And more quilts stacked under my quilting machine.

Now I better get quilting!
