The Color Red

I never thought I would like the color red as much as I do today. Blue or green were always my go to colors. Still are in this new house we are building. Smoky blue with creamy cupboards. Oh, but to cook in a kitchen again. Soon. In the meantime I realized I haven't posted anything in awhile so found this little gem I once made. The thing is I can't remember how I did it. But I sure do love how it turned out. Hope you like it too. The centers are my original red work drawings.

Genie in a Bottle

Working on some more applique' and hand quilting. This one is 16.5"x18". Not sure where I found the leaf motif. I think it was wallpaper. I want to try and put that in a four block arrangement.

Alex's Quilt

I am hoping this is the last graduation for awhile. Had a lot of fun creating this "guitar" quilt for my nephew, Alex. 
Favorite color blue, so used batiks and a splash of red.

Jillian's Butterflies

My great niece drew this cute little butterfly and I transferred it to a quilt design. Reverse applique was used on the butterflies. Hand quilted with some embroidery details.

Keeping Warm

I decided I could wait no longer to use my soon to be studio. So I am staying warm and quilting away. Life is good!

Antique Blocks

Mom, what a find, from a garage sale. Looking to do something with these beauties. I think there are 10 or 12. Will have to double check on how many I have. Fairly nice size. 
A design wall for sure to see which way I might like them to be. 
She also found 2 Double Wedding Ring tops. Pay dirt!
