A Few Finishes

8.19.2014

First...I LOVE my job!! I am so thankful to be working at a darling quilt shop (Cotton Creek Mill) that I love and with people that I love. =) I will say, working has cut into my blogging time. When I have my days off, I would much rather sew than blog. Just keeping it real. =) So, if I have been absent from  your blogs when it comes to comments, that would be why, but I do read every one of the posts. =)

That said I am, also behind on posting some finishes, so without further ado, here are the latest quilts I have finished up.

The Nested Churn Dash...Pattern by Quilt Jane.




 I am only slightly obsessed with Bonnie and Camille fabric lines...Dare I mention I have a Miss Kate Jelly Roll in my stash. One of many perks of working at Cotton Creek Mill. ;-)




 And this is a wedding gift for a couple in my church. I used two layer cakes of Holly Taylor's Woodland Summer.


And the pretty back...


I quilted it using 12 weight Sulky thread (purchased from Cotton Creek Mill...Yet another perk of working at a quilt shop). I used a size 100/18 needle in my Juki and it worked like a charm! I used regular 50 weight thread in the bobbin. I will definitely use the 12 weight thread more often. I love how it looks!



Oh, and today is our 14th wedding anniversary! Yay, us!! Please ignore my helmet hair and the awkwardness of this photo. We were sitting in a hammock and trying not to fall out!


                Have a happy week!!

  7. Happy Anniversary! Love the helmet hair!

    I think if I worked at a quilt shop, I'd just be signing over my paycheck every month! Can't wait to see what you do with Miss Kate.

  11. I never tire of seeing your "masterpieces",Amy! We love the same sort of fabrics. Do you wash your quilts after you finish them? Yours always look so soft and cozy. Also, what needle do you like to use in your Juki if you use Aurifil thread? I'm having a terrible time with tension trying to quilt with my Juki...God bless you in your sewing, marriage and new career!

  15. Lovely finishes! Happy, happy anniversary!
    Sounds like you are loving your job! I think working in a quilt store would be my dream job! Definitely, the only job I can imagine going back into the workforce for!

  16. Happy anniversary - you're a cute couple, hey?! And the back of your wedding gift quilt is nicer than some fronts - they'll love it. Let's hope they'll be as happy in a hammock in 14 years time! We celebrate 13 years next month :)

  17. First off - sending you (belated) anniversary wishes! Hope your day was wonderful, and that you get to celebrate many more!
    Next, I have to make at least one of those Nested Churn Dash quilts - I have the pattern - just like you though, I don't have half enough time to do everything I want to do.
    I LOVE Bonnie and Camille fabrics too!!! I don't think I have any leftover bits, although I might have when I finish my August project - it's a Herringbone quilt made with 2 Vintage Modern charm packs.
    Finally, that wedding quilt is GORGEOUS!!!! You must really love that couple!

  18. Such a joy-filled post! Happy Anniversary! Congratulations of the job. And what great finishes. I'm wanting to do a red and aqua winter themed quilt, but I have to get this red, black, and white finished first. augh! So many projects, so little time. Have a great week!
