The Debut

Okay, here it is... the big unveiling! I took some photos of some quilts over the weekend. A couple of them will be entered into my guilds' quilt show next month. Please excuse the photography as I get use to all of this. Shew I am breaking a sweat trying to get this all organized on here! Anyway, the first quilt is Star Patch. The pattern is by Jan Patek. I just taught this class at Cottage Quilts last month.




This quilt... I wish the picture came out better... is Figgy Pudding by Fig Tree Quilts. I will enter this one and the one above into the show.






I used the Quilt Soup fabric line "Ellery" for the houses. I had been wanting to do a house quilt for a long time... so this is Cotswold Cottages from Miss Fig Tree, Joanna's book.


Here is a happy spring-ish quilt. Huge flowers! This is from an older Fig Tree pattern. Virginia, a friend of mine did the quilting on all of these quilts... I just love what she does.



Okay, that is it for now. I have one more that will be entered into the show but that one is in my office (at my big girl job). I will take a picture of that this week.
Now, on another note... it is Monday and I have been happily in the sidelines yet still a part of Red Geranium Cottage's (aka Sharon) looser Monday group. I am happy to say that I did lose 4 1/2 pounds! I gave up drinking hot tea in the morning. This, if you knew me you would understand, was a huge sacrifice! Mr. Earl Grey: I still love you... I just can't have the caffeine
right now, you understand... okay not just the caffeine-the sugar, the cream, yada yada!
Thanks for stopping by!

Don't like Fig Tree much, do you?! LOL! I love your quilts--I just may like the flower one best because it's so different from any I've done, but it's hard to choose! Oh, the houses from the Ellery line--I have pieces from that line and haven't decided what to do with them yet, but you've reminded me that I'd like to pull those out and do SOMETHING!

A good beginning on your blog. Don't you just hate when you lose pictures or they show up in the wrong place? Keep showing your work -- it is inspiring to see others. institcheswithbonnie.blogspot.com
