THE SEWING MARATHON

So many quilts, not enough time. I have stopped for a minute just to give a little update. Janice is slaving away in the studio as I write. She has one quilt on the machine, this is the CHEZ MOI fabric that got lost in the mail.
Here is the sneak peak before it hit the machine. It will have some beautiful embellishing after it is quilted. It is a combination of old meets new, and, in my opinion, moda's chez moi collections are one of their best. Look for the finished quilt pictures in the next couple of days.

I have flown to Florida for the week so Janice and I can sew, sew, sew. We are getting about 4 to 5 hours of sleep a night. Two quilts have been finished so far.
The First one of the machine was the pink diamond quilt made with Westminster fabrics. It is absolutely my favorite. The pattern will be ready and on the website at the end of next week. We have already had quite a few orders for it. I LOVE IT!



The second one off the machine was MARMALADE SKY. This is such a great generic quilt for whatever fabric you want. And besides, you can never go wrong with black and white chains.





Last item for the day, we are so excited to show you our first picture of a quilt made from one of our patterns. Our friend Marcia, who helps us out once in while, gets the privilege of shopping in house. She and her daughter decided to make the baby quilt, "Baby, It's for You." Marcia added two borders and shifted the color scheme. It is beautiful. Thanks Marcia for sharing. We really mean it when we ask you to send us pictures. It just makes our day to see that something we have made has inspired you.

We have three more quilts to finish in the next three days. We will be posting some pictures as we go. Wish us luck.

That first quilt is darling. The colors go great together and that backing is fantastic. Nice work!
