I didn't make this quilt, but I quilted it, but I don't think it qualifies me as a cover girl. yet. But it's as close as I'm likely to get this month. My friend Michelle over at DesignCampPDX  designed this row along for Gen Q.  And she asked me to quilt it. Find directions and links on her site.

I free hand quilt on a frame and do not use digital tools. I mark very little and rarely use rulers.
 I usually make a very simple written plan and then just "go for it".   In this case,  each color was assigned a "theme" or "stitch concept" and then I just kinda winged it.

I love Feathers. Love them! They aren't right for every quilt, I wish they were, but I felt with the Carnival theme I was "working" they were just right.

I love quilting! I'm super grateful to my quilty friends.

Where I've been, What I've been doing

 I've been away from the blog for a long time. 

I quilted some quilts
For the guild, some charity quilts
For my friend Michelle, her quilt for Gen Q
For myself,  this one for Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show


and this one for me
here is a detail of the quilting.  This quilt is 4 years in the making, spawned 3 or 4 quilts in its wake and im thrilled its finished and it may get its own post. because I love it so. 

I taught some classes

I sewed some pretty together in an effort to get some more "pretty" in proper focus.
 So. Now your all caught up (mostly) I need to write some "Finish" posts,  update the the pages and add a section on doing longarming but I'm really working like crazy getting caught up and now just isnt the time for posting. Its Summer. 

 Quilters Rock!
