Helen's: Star Wedding Quilt


Helen made this quilt for her granddaughter's upcoming wedding. I used a suggested 'poopie green', King Tut 910, for the quilting on the blocks and for the side borders (the large blue borders are the sides of the quilt). The thread reads metalic on the quilt - whodda thunk it!!!

The stiching in the white blocks and on the borders are from a panto and block set called "Heraldic Hearts" from Patricia Ritter. This was interesting to do. Not only did I use a contrasting thread (I'm not usually that brave!), my laser light went kaput, so I had to McGuyver a fix (remember the show??). DD Leslie is working on fixing the short in the laser. That AirForce training is useful not just on airplanes and choppers.

For those of you that don't know, the studio is in a former church. I think this is the first photo I've posted on the blog that shows the high ceilings. Maybe it's time for a studio tour..

Elaine's: Neimeyer Spinning Bear Paws

This is another raffle quilt. It is a Judy Neimeyer Spinning Bear Paws. I love the colors in this one. I used Warm and White batting, Rainbows thread on the top, with Bottom Line in the bobbin. As always, click on the pictures to get a closer look.
