This really amazing quilt is a scrappy quilt made by a 90 year old woman who is nothing short of amazing. She used scraps and the color choices are perfect. the fabrics are everything from chicks to calico to batiks and it looks fabulous! I free motion quilted a hook feather all over it. The back is the last pic.

This is a commissioned quilt for a coworker. She ordered the quilt from Keepsake quilting and I said looks great! I didn’t realize it was minky. I had to stabilize each seam with Heat and press. I borrowed a walking foot. Today I started to long arm it in all over swirls. ITS WORKING, and I am so thrilled. Finish quilt will be the next blog post.

I am settling into a fall and winter schedule. It was a stay home weekend. My husband has had an ear infection for 5 months. So we took it easy. I am catching up on my quilting. I started testing blocks for Quilt maker magazine. I have been planning quilts since I had a big splurge on fabric purchases. I have been following Quilt market on Instagram and I want to buy tons of Tula Pink. Yep I am a big fan. I may buy something before the week is over, thanks Internet.
