Root Beer and Cotton Candy

I got to quilt another Root Beer and Cotton Candy quilt.


Here's a close up of some of the blocks. This picture is more true to the color of the quilt.

I did freehand feathers in the border, ribbons and diamonds in some of the pinwheels and diagonal lines in the others. In the square in the square blocks, I did Terry Twists and I did continues curves in all the small squares surrounding  the blocks.I love doing the design in the sashing. I think it adds softness to the overall feel of the quilting.
Thanks for looking and please come back!

Where has a year gone?

 Hard to believe but it's gone.  I spent most of it going to school.....It's official. I have an Associates Degree! Since jobs are still not plentiful in the Rockford area I'm working at a quilt shop. Not what I went to school for but it's a great job and I'm having fun.  Next week I get to go and work at the 2011 Quilt Expo in Madison, Wisconsin. It's a large show put on by Nancy Zieman of  Nancy's Notions. Should be lost of fun.

                       I did manage to get a customer's quilt finished                                                      

I used a Pantograph for the center of the quilt and did freemotion quilting in the border. I was pleased with the way it turned out and the customer liked it too.

I'm still working on the Wool Applique but I'll save that for another post.

Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment!
