Blog Catch Up

Well, despite my lack of blog posts lately, I have been busy quilting.  I will attempt to get the blog caught up this week.  Here are a couple quilts that I've worked on recently. 

This is Gina's flannel quilt.  You might think that quilting straight lines would be super easy, but this one was a doozie for me!  Notice the pointed edges.  I had to make sure that all those points were aligned just right.  Then I rotated the quilt and put it back on to do the vertical lines. 

Good luck binding this one Gina! 

Here's another tractor/farm quilt.  This one has all the farm critters on it!  Puppies, kitties, horses, chickens, cows...

A large swirl is what I quilted it with.

Here's a shot of the center panel.  I just love it!  That big white barn reminds me of the one at my Grandparent's house. 

And in other news, I have decided not to return to my job from maternity leave, so I am now officially a full-time stay-at-home Mom and Longarm quilter!!  I think I am going to love it!  Also, today is my Birthday.  Yes, on St. Patty's Day.  I am not too excited about it.  I'm now officially in my thirties.  UGH.

Love the straight line quilting. That is perfect for that type of quilt.

Congratulations on your decision to be a stay at home mom. You won't regret it!

And, by the way, I had the Christmas Log Cabin quilt you quilted for me judged at our quilt show last weekend by a professional judge and her comment was that "the quilting was expertly done"! So keep up the good work!
