Joni made a fun doggie quilt for her friend and wanted a thematic pantograph to compliment it. She picked out “DoodleBug” which has cute doggies with bones and balls. The motif is not as noticeable on the front but the back is Minkee so it shows up pretty well!

The Wedding Quilt
NOW AVAILABLE—Celebrate one of America’s most romantic and enduring traditions with The Wedding Quilt.
Sarah McClure arrived at Elm Creek Manor as a newlywed, never suspecting that her quilting lessons with Master Quilter Sylvia Bergstrom Compson would inspire the successful and enduring business Elm Creek Quilts, whose members have nurtured a circle of friendship spanning generations. As the wedding day of Sarah’s daugher, Caroline, approaches, Sarah’s thoughts are filled with brides of Elm Creek Manor past and present—the traditions they honored, the legacies they bequeathed, the wedding quilts that contain their stories in every stitch.E

Just ran across this fun Christmas table runner! Do you think I can find some time before Christmas to make one?! Check out Diary of a Flutter.Kat for the instructions.
Celia and Janann made Debbie Caffrey’s mystery quilt, Rain & Fire. Janann added extra borders to her quilt and you can see that here, Blue and Yellow #3. For Celia’s quilt, I ordered a dark purple OMNI thread by Superior to match the fabric and quilted feathers in the border. The center is a freehand peacock feather design with OMNI natural white. The batting is Quilter’s Dream Blend. The matching thread creates texture and movement without adding another color element and is perfect for this quilt.
The bobbin matches the dark purple which contrasts with the light backing fabric but that guarantees a perfect looking stitch from the front. Because it matched so well on top, it was hard to see, so I’d stop and crawl under my longarm to look at it!
My one year anniversary for blogging is approaching! I’m very thankful to my friend Candace of The Double Nickel Quilt Challenge for encouraging me to start blogging and my son, Drew, for helping with the website set up and maintenance. He’s been very patient with me! Having a photo diary of my quilting has been fun and helped me keep a better record of each quilt, whether it’s mine or a customer’s. I will be having my first giveaway on my blog over Thanksgiving weekend. So check back for my Thanksgiving Giveaway post next week to see what you can win!
Thanks for looking and just keep stitching!
