Winnie the Pooh Quilt

Winnie the Pooh Quilt

The Pooh quilt is ready to go on the longarm.
Got the back finished up today.
We have had a busy week with grandsons
here for hunting.
Now back to my quilting

Here are some pictures of what has been added to the
back of this quilt.   To make it very personalized
we have a picture of its new owner and one with great
symbolism for the one commissioning the quilt.
 And the label for the quilt.  I love how this turned out.

Eagle Camo Quilt

Many hour have been spent finishing up the embroidery
for this quilt.  It will be next for the longarm
just waiting for some important elements to arrive so
I can construct the backing for it.
In the mean time here are some embroidery high lights.



 Names for quilt
 Red, White and Blue American Eagle
 Deer in cross hairs
 Elk and deer embroidery
Just a peek.  Opps I left one out......
will share it next time.  
Until then.

Retreat Time

Time for a Quilt Retreat

Retreat time
Spending time in the mountains
and sewing for hours upon hours upon hours.
 Our surroundings at Sunlight Retreat grounds.
Early morning sunshine
 Viewed from our porch
3 days of sewing, chatting, eating and more sewing
the Winnie the Pooh quilt top.....done

 Eagle Camo quilt top, ready for the long arm
 Close up of sections of the scenes
 another scene
 Black bear for Kirk, ready for the longarm
 And finally, the Ruffled Roses quilt top is done,
it only took 4 years, but it is done.  Next it will be longarm time, 
but after the others are done, as this one will take extra
time to do.
Very productive weekend to say the least.

More updates to come on each as they get quilted and 
all final details are completed.

Quilt Teasers-Eagle Camo & Pooh

Eagle Camo

Pooh

Teasers

Fussy cut blocks for the Pooh quilt.
 What is fussy cut?  Cutting holes in yardage of fabric to get
a special element.
 Fussy cutting leaves fabric with many holes in it.
 3 of the 4 colors that will be going with the fussy cut Pooh blocks.

And two elements that will be included in the Eagle Camo quilt.


 These are both Willow Bend designs

Robe

Robe 

for Tristan

One of my grand children made a special request
How could Nana say anything but yes.  

So he asked for a black fleece robe
he also has asked for his name on it but that will
wait until he visits so we can do that together
at the embroidery machine.

Finished it today.
It is very snugly.

 Some detail.
Have had 3 more requests for robes
Looks like a robe type of year
shaping up.
 It turned out really well.
Will have to share it again once we 
monogram it.   
With Tristan wearing it.

Taz Quilt Completed

Taz Quilt Done

Happy to say the Taz quilt is done
I was not sure along the way if I would like the results
It turned out better then I expected
in fact
I like it!

Now for some final highlights.
The center was kicked up a notch with the 
addition of two borders, one in a bright fushia, and
the other in the blue of the blocks.   It really made a huge difference.
 The label embroidered
 Adding one of the elements to the backing of the quilt
 Picture of Erin and Brooklyn printed out.
 On the long arm at last, ready to begin quilting.
 Quilting underway, using a variegated 4 tone blue thread.
 Another look at the quilt on the longarm.
 Here you are looking at the reflection of the back of the quilt
in mirrors that are under the quilt as it is on the long arm.
You are seeing another element on the back of the quilt, an
embroidered eagle. 
 Close up of one of the embroidered and quilted blocks

 To the borders I also added a flange trim and the binding.  
I am happy with this quilt and hope it's new owners will be also.
I call this quilt finished.
