How is everyone doing? I am sure busy with the holiday season in full swing. I know I have been. =) My poor neglected blog was getting lonely. I had no idea how much busier working part time would make my life! Trust me, that is not a complaint. Just a fact. =)
There hasn't been much to blog about lately due to working on secret Christmas projects. Now that they are done and ready for gift giving, I did get to work on a couple of projects that I can share. =)
Last month I worked on a shop sample. Wow....I was a bit nervous and I knew it was going to be sent out to a longarmer to get it quilted. A first for a quilt I have made. We got it back last week and now it's hanging up for all to see. It turned out so nice!!! The fabric is Moda's Atelier and the pattern is Tapestry that can be found in Fat Quarter Shop's book, Fat Quarter Style.
Next up, I found some motorcycle fabric to make Rusty a quilt. Poor guy is severely neglected in the manly man quilt pile around here. I added in some grunge fabric by BasicGrey for Moda. I love the grunge fabrics!
The weather is daily today, so inside photos are the best I can do. I wish the blue grunge fabric photographed better. It's a richer blue that what shows up in the pictures.
I backed it with a Moda flannel and used a wool batting. It's been napped tested and approved couple of times already. =)
We have had some busy weeks at the shop getting ready for the Christmas season and I worked extra hours. So far, this week looks like to be a more normal week so I can get some stuff done around here.
Russ and I are planning a weekend away in Milwaukee for my birthday this weekend. We will do some quilt shop looking and we are going to take a tour of the Harley Davidson museum. Can't wait!!
Have a happy Monday, everyone!! And have a very merry Christmas...
