What's new?

Well, it's been a while since I wrote so I thought I'd do a bit of show-and-tell to show you what I've been up to.

This is a quilt I made for a swap.  I received fabrics from my swap partner, who mentioned she wanted a lap quilt with an ocean or beach theme to give as a retirement gift to a coworker.  This is what I came up with.  The outer border is a Disappearing 4-Patch, which gives it movement such as water rippling in tide pools.  The applique was just a lot of fun to add to the quilt, too.

I made this quilt for a friend.  I'm not sure if she was trying to stump me when she said her favorite colors were pink, purple, teal, and BLACK.  But I found the perfect pattern, and this quilt was born.  She LOVES it, and that makes me really happy.  :)

A client fell in love with this quilt, which came as a kit that she bought.  But she's not a quilter!  So she hired me to put it together for her, and it turned out so super cute!

I loved the teacup pattern so much, I made another one for a friend using fabric from my stash.

Today, I'll be binding this behemoth.  It's a King size t-shirt quilt, made from my client's running t-shirts he's been collecting since around 1982.  It turned out beautifully, and I can't wait to finish it and return it to him.  :)

Oh, and have you seen?  Bonnie Hunter's new mystery is under way.  She posted the first clue with colors and yardage, you can see it here:

Celtic Solstice Mystery

I'm debating doing it.  If I do, I think I'll choose a different colorway.  This one just isn't speaking to me like last year's did.  Oh, and the great thing is she's offering it in two sizes!  Big and Bigger LOL.  Will you be participating this year?
