Being busy is fun!

Between finishing customer quilts and looking for a new vehicle, I have been a little busier than normal. I love to be busy! Right now I am sitting in my studio looking at a beautiful quilt that needs to go on the frame this week. It is one that my mom pieced. She is coming up for a visit this week and bringing more tops. Yeah! She lets me do anything I want on them, which is wonderful! I have been watching Kim Brunner's Twirly Whirly Feathers DVD and I want to do feathers on this quilt. The quilt keeps telling me it wants feathers. I was going to load it on the frame, but she is bringing a top with her this she wants me to do first.

I also finished several quilts in the past few weeks. When I took the pictures of my studio there was a beautiful pieced State of Grace quilt on my frame. I had so much fun quilting this quilt. I got a lot of SID (stitch in the ditch) practice in. Plus I used a sashing design that Sue Patten taught us in one of the classes she taught in Greensboro.
I just had to do a little line dancing too. Line dancing is just too much fun!
Here is the border with Sue's sashing design. I have done this one on a couple of quilts now ranging from a 1.5 inch sash to this 6 inch border. It is a fast, fun design that I am sure that I will use often.
