I'm going out like the lion!

Spring has yet to arrive here in New Hampshire.  The hubs is off skiing today, yup, March 31 and there is still enough snow to ski!!

I've kept pretty busy with all of the really fabulous quilts that have come my way.  Grab a little something to drink and enjoy the show!

ROSEMARY!!!  OMG!!  This is one of the coolest quilts that I've seen!  How super cool is this quilt?  Rosemary sent me a photo of the quilting and I pretty much just copied (purchased) the same design to stitch out on her quilt.  It is PERFECT!  Great job Rosemary!!

Dana kept me busy for a while with these three little quilts!  I enjoyed working with all of the quilts, but the first one!  Sushi!!!   Dana let me stitch out Koi fish and using a blue thread....LOVE IT!!  

YOUNG - Grandma to be Kristina sent me this adorable little quilt for new 
Grand baby in the family.  How perfect is that little quilt with the owls?

The colors on Donna's quilt are beautiful!  Love all the dept the purples bring into this great quilt!  Simple quilting design, it's a wonderful gift!

LOVE the colors on this one too!  The brights are so alive and with the VanGogh modern quilting design, it's a real winner!  Sarah, good job!

Pat put together this great t-shirt quilt for her daughter.  The shirts show all of the  years of hard work and commitment  that went into a variety of jobs.  Mix that with a few special events and it's a real keeper!

Sue has been a busy, busy girl with these two quilts!  Love the way she incorporated a simple flower panel into a great quilt.  Her second quilt is amazing!  The modern design and colors are so cool!  I stitched a modern triangle on it to finish it off.

Here's a super quilt to welcome spring!!  Sue's lilac quilt has tons and tons of little blocks and must have taken for-ever!  It is beautiful!

Who doesn't love Mickey?  This is a fun quilt and it was a pleasure to have
hanging around for a few days!  Kristin, thanks for brightening up my working space and good luck with the raffle!

How amazing is this one?  Candy mixed a touch of yellow in with the blacks and whites on this quilt.  The result is fascinating, just a little makes a huge difference of the overall look of the quilt!

Most of you know Terry, she keeps cranking out those incredible tops!  With all that she does I'm not sure how she finds the time!!  Terry's quilts begin warm and fuzzy, I'm sure once they are completely finished, washed and dried, they are the BEST!!  You can visit Terry over at :  Terry's Treasures

WHEW!!!!!!!!!  This is almost all of the quilts that I had the pleasure of working with during the month of March.  I've got a couple more, but I'm hoping to share those with you at a later time.  

Lots and lots of things happening in my world!  Good things.  

Adding a second retreat and learning lots of new things for the machine quilting.  Meeting new customers is always one of my favorite things and I've had the pleasure of doing quite a bit of that too.  Heading to MQX for some classes, keep your fingers crossed that I absorb loads of good info from some of the biggest names in quilting.

Okay, gotta go put some dinner on...the hubs is going to be home and he'll be looking for something to eat after a hard day on the slopes. 

Don't forget you can see more of these wonderful quilts over at the other blog....

That's it for now!
Thanks for checking on me!


love to hear what you've got to say..............
