Wildroot Border

This little flower in the fabric was the inspiration for the border
I drew all the half flowers on,  this way I won't have to mark as I go along to get the right spacing around the borders.    Decided that a quarter inch lines would make the flowers stand out.......

Wildroot of Montana

This quilt is going to Montana ...........   the inspiration came from the  fabric which will be repeated through out the quilt.     I drew the pattern that will be place in each corner ( mirror image)  plus cross hatching.    I drew the design on with blue Mark Be Gone before it was placed on the frame,  this way each placement is perfect.      I've had this quilt on and off the frame several time to get out customers quilts,   this time it will stay on the frame until completed ..........   about a week.
Time for basting.....

Cardtrick Finished

Finished and ready for delivery........      It was hard for me not to quilt the sashing,  but to keep the cost down that was not touch.    The only places that were  quilted was the blocks and border.     It turned out quite will  for simple........


This quilt is amazing....   It was brought to me to quilt befor this saturday for her sister shower.   The photos are of the sister growing up meeting the husband to be and then the engagement.    What a wonderful gift!!
Will post more photos when I'm finished.    These photos were taken at night with the flash so it doesn't show the fabric very will.

Customer Quilt & Apple Pie

                                    Finished hot off the frame ......   now onto the next one

The back looks a little interesting .......   pebble & straight lines

This is an apple pie that I baked up with apples that were taken off a apple tree in the yard of a house that we looked at on Monday when we were house hunting.     Wonderful apple trees  ...... the owner left a ladder next to the tree so we could pick a bag full.     Of course I took him up on his offer ..... 

This is one of the houses that we looked at,   very nice,  sets on 2 acres,   room for my quilt machines.
The boys  (dogs)  loved it!

Shows over back to normal,   we were so busy at the quilt expo that I couldn't leave the booth to take pictures of quilts.    It was a very busy show this year,  it was better the Milwaukee for attendance.

Couldn't sleep last night so I got up and wash jars for the tomatoes this morning.   I planted three plants and this was my first picking.     These will taste really good this winter.......
