Juried into Denver National Quilt Show



Thanks to my friend Heidi "nudging" me along these two quilts were juried into Denver National Quilt Show at the end of this month.

It will be fun to see them hanging with the big dogs! There is a lot of work in these two quilts. Hours of painting the" Feathers & Flowers" quilt and hours of custom quilting in both of them. The Mariner's Compass quilt I named "Finding My Way" because it helped me find my footing in the custom quilting world which by the way I am loving!!! Would rather custom quilt than do patterns any ol' day!!!

Mariner's Compass






It's almost done! Spent 5 days custom quilting it now I need to put the binding on it. The neat thing is the back is a whole cloth quilt because I used the 108 wide material!!! So I will have reversible/two in one.

Memory Quilt Done

Finished my memory quilt of my Mom. Put her HS graduation picture on it along with lots of her jewelry, a watch, old buttons, tatted flowers and lace she had done, etc. etc.
I tea dyed all the fabric. I quilted a feather boarder around it.
I like it turned out really nice.
