With Milk and Sugar?

I recently had the honor of quilting a gorgeous hand appliqued quilt titled, With Milk and Sugar?,  for my customer and friend, Rhonda.

The hand applique on this piece is just phenomenal and this was such a fun and whimsical quilt to quilt.  This was a Block of the Month from Material Obsession by Wendy Williams.

Here are some of the pictures I took as I was quilting:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This quilt was entered into the Ocean Waves Quilt Guild Quilt Show recently and both of us were so excited that it had won “Best of Show” and a First Place Ribbon.  Congrats to Rhonda!!!

At this same show, another customer/friend, Ellen, won ribbons on two of her quilts:

New York, New York won a First Place Ribbon & a specialty ribbon of “Best Use of Color”, and her Gypsy Quilt won a First Place Ribbon.  Congrats to Ellen!!!

This past Novemer, the Handi Quilter Educators were given a challenge to quilt ice-dyed whole cloths that were made by Debra Linker (here is her facebook page).  She does exquisite work and I was honored to be part of this challenge.

If we turned in our completed projects by a certain date, we were able to get our quilts into Machine Quilting Unlimited Magazine.  I decided to give it a try and what fun I had in this process of quilting this piece.

So I started my process, and will share some of my progress shots:

The binding on this is a “faced binding”.  This was new to me, but I am totally loving it!!

Make sure to pick up your copy of this magazine, as there are several others featured in this article, and they are all extremely unique and beautiful!!!

 

Happy Quilting!!!
