Indian Summer Quilt.....

I have a  three commissions I am currently working on - all which need to go out by next  week.  I love being this busy in the studio.  It's so exciting to work with clients on a piece that they have designed and want to see come to fruition, or to custom design a piece for them according to their specifications.  Really rewarding and so fun.

  I finished a few Kindle covers over the weekend - two special orders and two others.  I love this one and just may keep it for myself.  Kaffe fabric with a really cool fused glass button - such a pretty combination.

Monday I got this quilt all pinned and ready to quilt- but have to put it on hold until I get the commissions out.  It took me three days to decide upon a quilting pattern.  Rather than a grid or meander, I've decided to quilt individual tribal suns in the large white blocks. I did a few last night - and it looks awesome.  I'll post pics when it's done.  I just made these blocks for fun (improvisational log cabins - mod style) not knowing what I was going to do with them.  I ended up having enough for a pretty decent sized quilt (50+")  Click HERE to purchase this quilt on my Etsy.

I've also seen some mod quilts with color on the back and I really like that - so on this one I pieced a three inch strip for the back of representative fabrics from the front.  It runs down the middle - pretty.

I'm working all day on a smaller version of the whale quilt I put on Etsy over the weekend as a special order.  I love working with these aqua homespuns - they make me happy!  I'll post a picture of my progress on that one this evening as I promised the gal who purchased it some photos - so they will be up tonight.

Enjoy the day!  I swear I feel Fall coming - I really do. It hasn't been as humid and I've even notice a few leaves dropping (from exhaustion!) Cool Weather - Bring it ON!

Fall is definitely knocking on the door up here in the north! Today I planted ornamental kale and cabbage along the walkway and picked up CHEAP perennials to fill in some other places. Kind of want a Kindle just so I can make it cover - love the button a lot!
