MQX at Rhode Island

Just returned from MQX in Rhode Island where I traveled to take classes, ( hopefully to enhance my quilting techniques), and also to see the many quilts that were entered in competition.  Wow, I was truly humbled! There are so many very talented quilters out there with works of art that are magnificent. The teachers there were incredible and the classes were excellent.  
But all that aside now and I am back to work on my own projects (i.e. Michael's Frogs).

Ringbearer's Pillow for Wedding

Today was a real test of treading into the unknown waters. I have a customer, Kelly, who brought me her Great Grand Mom's Wedding dress and asked if I could make a ring pillow for her sister's wedding from the back portion of the dress. This dress was incredibly special because it was worn in 1930.  Wow, what a treat! So very old and so very special.

Michael's Frogs

Thanks to Megan ( ) and her inspired baby shower card I was able to create the
faces for Michael's Quilt.

Jayden's Jungle

Nearing completion, this quilt has indeed given me a few challenges. A pieced backing was necessary because the quilt exceeded my original design size.  It does, however, give the option of being used as a reversible quilt.
So, at present, Jayden's Jungle is on my long arm table and in the process of being quilted. Yea!! Thanks Jeanne and Debbie for your help along the way.  Every project is a lesson in patience and creativity.
