Zig Zag Quilt Along

I know, I know...I don't have time...but you always seem to find a little tiny bit here and there for the things you want to do. Yes, I am zig zag quilting along. I've seen so many of these zig zag quilts on various posts and thought, gee I'd like to make I started a doll quilt size that I have finished piecing, a warmer up to this quilt along hosted by Park City/Old Red Barn...I'm going to make a throw size for my kitchen table....using some of the new Kaffe Fasset fabrics I just got in (listed on my etsy site, I might make a couple kits up too). I'm using the 5" charm size block, and here's my first few photos, cutting fabric for the throw size. First photo is the doll quilt.

Pink Saturday-Cottage Home Part 2

It's time for Pink Saturday, hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. Be sure to visit Beverly's blog to see a complete list of all the participants in today's Pink Saturday

2 quilts finished

The Black, Pink and White quilt is one I quilted for a client. The novelty print is all different pieces of undergarments, and I just happened to have, and was wondering when I would ever use it or if I would, a pantograph design of undergarments with some writing also, quilted in pink thread and her back was white. She is giving it to a friend with cancer and having all the girls sign the back, too cute. The second quilt is the first one I've ever done with chinese coins pattern, was so much fun, I see myself making lots of these, a great way to use of smaller pieces of your stash.

Outdoor Wednesday-Garden Walk

Welcome to Outdoor Wednesday, hosted by Susan of A Southern Daydreamer. Beautiful outdoor photos can be found, when you stop by Susan’s, each Wednesday. Below is my contribution to Outdoor Wednesday this week.

I went on a Garden Walk on Sunday and toured about six houses, this one I'm blogging about is just one home, and it happens to be my bosses, she's an amazing gardener. The home is situated on an extra wide triple lot. The home is reminicent of the English Cottage style, with character, charm, and romance. Her and her husband have just moved in only 18 months ago and she has completely revamped the whole landscape that had been let go. The gardens were amazing, stunning, georgeous, fantastic and inspiring. They dug out old yews, removed huge pine trees and put in an incredible rock garden feature in the front of the home on a small hill...quite an ingenius way to use the's all about vision. The variety of perenials is breathtaking mixed with annuals gives just the right color splash. The property is surrounded on each side and along the back with a stone wall "to die for", the stone was quarried when the house was built. There is an inground pool on the grounds but I missed getting photos of that, a really cute potting shed and porch boxes surround the front and side, a couple of arbor gates and just the right touch of adornmentation without being tacky. Take notice of the "conversation pieces", man and woman planter heads and I love the little cherubs "sharing a secret" and are a few others here and there. I manipulated a few photos in photoshop, the "heads" to give them a real old feel of texture, the full house shot to give a drawing effect, the flowers for a monet look, the cherubs for an artsy look and another one of the house. Come back on "Pink Saturday" this week and see a few more shots with all the pinks in them that I'm saving for that. I hope you enjoyed this little tour. Thanks for stopping by.

Doll quilt

I think I have another new little obsession, doll quilts this is the 2nd one I've made and they are just soo much fun....quick finish, great for using scraps and trying new techniques. I experimented with some texture fill quilting with a variegated thread.
