Catching up Again!

I won't waste time apologizing for all the time between posts. Lets face it, I'm a bad blogger.
I will however get straight to sharing pictures of  some of the quilts that I've finished since my last post:

This first one is a quilt that I helped my friend piece for her daughter's wedding present. It's a photo quilt with pictures of both the bride and groom from childhood to adulthood.

It was custom quilted with lots of feathers. 
Next is another custom quilt with lots of feathers. I'm on a feather kick.........
I used a ruler from Deloa Jones for the rope border, it's really slick.
The center star is surrounded by curved crosshatching and the same treatment is applied to the center of the star along with feathers in the points. I used a variegated thread in the colored parts and black for all the backgrounds with a solid red in the sashings. I really love how this one turned out. I wish I could have kept this one. I'll have to make one for myself (Who's dreaming now?)
Think I'll end now and save some for another time.
See I really have been busy.....honest, I have!
