Time is flyin'!

I feel like I've been sewing like crazy, but I can't show you most of it!  I completed a quilt top that our guild is doing as a mystery.  I'm working ahead to make sure there aren't any "surprises" in the pattern...but I don't want to show a picture and ruin it for a few ladies that might see my blog.  :)

I also completed a mini quilt that will be part of an exchange at retreat in May.  I took pictures of it though, so I'll show you someday!  LOL

I have been doing a lot of quilting too...this quilt was just delivered today.  

 The focus fabric is a "space" theme....

 The owner wanted circles, sort of like a solar system in the large squares....
...disregard the "X" in the middle...it's soap and will come out when she washes it.  :)

 The corners got some orbit circles too...

The rest of the quilt is "stitched in the ditch."

My friend, Tammy is coming on Thursday for a week-long sewing/shopping/sight-seeing vacation...we will have tons of fun, I know!  I'll try to snap a few pictures of our excursions, so you can keep up with the fun!  :)

Happy Quilting!


  1. Yes - do take lots of pictures and have a fabulous time!! :)

  2. Great quilting, Michelle! The circles are perfect, and suit the space theme very well. I bet there are times when you have more to do than you can handle with that long arm, surely you are in demand!

  3. Michelle, this is gorgeous! Nice job -- I'm sure your customer was very satisfied!! :)

  4. I love how you quilted it, looks wonderful!

  5. I don't understand it, Michelle, but this post just barely showed up on my reading list. Go figure! I love this quilt. It is a simple 9-patch, but the colors are rich and the fabric is fun. You did a great job on the quilting.


Love hearing from my blog friends! I had to disable "Anonymous" comments though. Thanks for stopping by!!
