These two beautiful table runners where made by Jayne from Twiggy and Opal.  I love the simple yet modern designs.

   

Terry from Terry Aske Art Quilt Studio made this beautiful quilt as part of her second second entry to the MQG Michael Miller Petal Pinwheels fabric challenge.  It looks quite complicated to make, but after seeing the pictures she added it really is very simple.

Anything Goes Mondays #71

With a shock I realized I never posted the link-up last week, I do apologize.  Sometimes life has have a way of interrupting, and one morning when you wake up you realize more time has passed than you care to remember.

This morning I thought of sharing a little something of my own...

I am part of a small group of ladies on facebook, each month we swap a single fabric postcard.  Last months' theme was feathers, one of my favourite free motion quilting designs.  As I was practising I made a few extra cards... If you're interested in making you're own, I shared a tutorial how I make mine, you can find it here.


Now it's your turn to link up...

Labour of Love - A Finished Quilt

A couple of weeks ago I shared my experience with you when I visited the Carltonville Country Counters' Regional meeting, and how I volunteered to quilt this quilt for them, you can read all about it here.  


Well the time has finally arrived to share the finished quilt with all of you.  

After they sent it to me I had it 'sit' for a few weeks until I finally decided what I wanted to quilt.  I really wanted the quilting to pop and to emphasize the quilt design.  So I used my all time favourite quilting designs, alternating between swirls, pebbles and some dot to dot quilting with a wiggly filler.  
I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story.... 


















I enjoyed every second I spent finishing this quilt for them.  It was a totally new experience quilting a quilt not pieced by myself, the fabrics used in this quilt is truly beautiful, I love the rich colours.

I am really proud of what I have done and I hope they approve and will call on me again in the future for projects like these... it was honestly 'A Labour of Love'.

Guest Host for Anything Goes Mondays - Diana from The Red Delicious Life

Todays' guest host for Anything Goes Mondays is Diana from Red Delicious Life


She currently calls Orlando, Florida home and is a stay at home mom to a very active 4-year-old son. She’s a former theatre professional who dabbled in fiber crafts for over 20 years but it wasn’t until after her son was born that she decided to try her hand at quilting. 



It’s now become her passion to learn as much about quilting as possible. Everything she’s learned so far has been through the internet and self-taught through trial and error.



Finding time to sew regularly can be a challenge with a busy family schedule. Her list of finished projects is relatively small but her quilting mantra is “It’s all about the journey.” With each and every project she focuses on a new technique.


I hope you have fun visiting her blog and see what she is up to, so head on over to her link up and share some love.
