I have recently discovered this lovely lady how has some great unique quilt patterns and she is having a give away!! These fabrics look wonderful and rich.
This photo is from her blog- not only can she create beautiful quilts ( I just purchased She Zigs, He Zags pattern) but she is talented with photography.

Long-Arm Love

I found a 15 year old APQS longarm on Kijiji that I just needed to have and my husband said yes. I loved it, it was great fun- in fact too much fun. I used it a lot and realized that it was too much for me- four children, big dog and a husband who works a lot of long hours. So, as my dad said, I grew up and sold it. I showed great maturity in this decision (I need to keep telling myself). I miss it but the good thing is that the people who bought it don't live too far and they said I could use it any time.

While I had this tremendous machine I was able to do a lot of quilts for Margaret's Hope Chest. Carin is amazing and I am thrilled to know here. Here are some of the quilts I quilted for her. I was also able to donate some as well. Two of these quilts were designed by Crazy Mom Quilts at the retreat last summer. (the long ones blue and green).

Here it is with two quilts on it!! Double duty.

One of my all time favorite blogs is Crazy Mom Quilts. I really enjoy her blog. She is down to earth and so inspirational. I decided to join her quilt along this summer. I was quite faithful and finished the quilt by Christmas for my daughter. I made it queen size (what was I thinking?!?) which was perfect because we rearranged beds and rooms and now her room is the guest room which allows me to have my very own studio for sewing and creating!! This is very exciting stuff.
So here is it- in all it's queen size glory.
