Working on my PHD: Tumbler, Gypsy Girl, and Merry Go Round

I am happy to have been so productive over the last couple of weeks!  I haven't been able to post really due to data/internet troubles, but I've got some fun quilty projects to show you today!  First I have a tumbler quilt that I put the finishing touches on.  It's all in subtle country prints and I like its little country charm. 
I've had a bundle of fat quarters that I've been hoarding for about 4 years.  It's a Free Spirit line called Journeys from Kathy Davis.  I just loved the prints and couldn't find a pattern that I though was worthy of my coveted bundle.  I finally took the leap and cut into my bundle and I'm really happy with the results!  I used the Gypsy Girl pattern from Heather Mulder Peterson's Fat Quarter Five book.  It's so full of color and fun!

I've been rather disappointed with my free motion results lately. While I like the stitching that I'm putting in to the quilts, I haven't gotten a satisfactory backing la…

North Woods Quilt Pictures

I got out yesterday and took some fun pictures of my north woods quilt in this beautiful north woodsy setting that we're currently in!   It was really fun to get out and take these pictures, so please enjoy! 

My sister was kind enough to let me borrow her living room to lay out the quilt, so it's all set for free motion quilting.  I'm already looking ahead to my next quilt which I'm just chomping at the bit to get started on!  I decided to do make the Chopsticks quilt from Jaybird quilts from my True Luck fabrics.  I had originally only purchased Fat Quarters and the pattern calls for half yard cuts. Therefore I placed my order this morning for some more fat quarters from River's Edge Quilt Loft in Hayward, WI.  I can't wait for my bundle to arrive so I can get started on that quilt!  It's going to be great!

Now, time to get free motion quilting!  Sewing machine, here I come!
