Forgotten Finishes!

Do you ever get so busy you forget to share your finishes?  Some things I just plain forget about, time passes, stuff comes up and they get pushed to the side in a pile or in my mind!

So let's do a little catch up!  

30" x 40"
Peppered Cottons
Assorted Kona Grey
This little jewel features six different Peppered Cottons.  The colors are vibrant and bold, the grey tones let them shine!  And rightfully so!


A pinned quilt is always a great opportunity to play with the camera!  I love messing with angles and close-ups...you never know what you will get!


Some intense geometric quilting, a wash & dry, equals magic!


36" x 20"
I also finished this large ocean wall hanging.  I blogged about it here:   Treading Water
It has been finished and sent to it's new home for some time now.  I think turned out so beautiful!


I'm in love!  With the finish, with the quilting, with the colors!



While making the large wall hanging, I was also making this one.  It was inspired by The Blue Ridge Mountains (for a customer).  It took five tries to get it right, but we eventually got there!


13" x 18"
And this gray thing...is something I have been working on this week!  I'm excited about it and cannot wait to show you!


Now I'm off!  It's a beautiful, amazingly not humid day and a little fresh air is needed!  I feel like I'm getting stale sitting inside so much!

  10. The texture on that diamond quilt is just phenomenal! And I think I've swooned over your ocean commission a few hundred times already on IG ;) Hope you enjoy a beautiful, humidity-free weekend, and still manage some time to finish your improv piece which is coming along so nicely!

    1. I think it's safe to say this is my favorite kind of quilting to do! You can't go wrong when you quilt the heck out of something (usually)! I hope to start quilting the gray improv quilt this weekend, which I am so excited about! I may miss the beautiful weather, but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!

  16. This collection of finishes has blown me away. Your projects are incredible!! I especially love the grid quilting in your peppered cottons quilt and the colours and quilting of your ocean wall hanging. Makes me want to lock myself in my sewing room for a week! Thanks for the inspiration and beautiful eye candy.
