Leap Frog Quilt

Another cute  little quilt from " IoWay " .....    Now just to bring out it's personality.  
I love these little frogs.    The embroidery work in each block is awesome.  Really nice work!!
I kind of give all my customers a cute name from the state where I received the quilt.

These photos were taken in the studio,  so the colors don't show up as well.

Marche De Fleurs

Love this Fabric......     Went to the quilt shop Friday looking for toile and spotted this fabric.   I knew I just had to have it to make up a quilt for the guest bedroom.    Sunday cut all the strips, pieced and I'm short fabric.     Another trip to Busy Bobbins.    Oh yes!!   I did find toile in the sale room and bought the whole bolt.       

The block pattern will be a 6 1/2 x 6 1/2  nine patch and rail fence.


I will use this for the border.

Spring Finished

Used two layers of cotton,  So Fine #402 for the top and bobbin.



I like the way the back turned out with all the different quilt designs 

IoWay's Spring Quilt

A cute little Spring Quilt sent to me from Iowa
This is a fun one to quilt ....     I'm adding different quilting designs in every block to make it interesting.

Have you noticed my new name????
I used this name years ago when I was out in the work field and decided to go back and use it again.  I have a new blog that will be up and running a few weeks and will post all my work on it.

Quilted Shams

These shams are for a customer in Illinois for a granddaughters wedding.    There is a queen cross stitch top to go with the shams. 

There is a lot of stitching going on.......   They sure are pretty when they are quilted.

Suzan Pons (aka Frenchie) Here In The States

After three  years I finally met Suzan for the first time......  
We met through the APQS forum when she first started quilting.   We corresponded through emails, letters, and skype.   She is such a fun person,  it is like I have known her all my life. 
We talked quilting,  had lunch talked more quilting,  made a trip to the Cove Quilt Shop for a little shopping.......
Suzan buying  2 yards of fabric to challenge me in a quilt project.    This should be fun,   ( I have mine all planned out )    will post that later.
