New Quilts

Beach Landscape #1

Beach Landscape #2

I just had to use the rusty color hand dyed fabric, so of course I had to use it for a beach scene! The multi-colored fabric was just the right color for a sky with sun rays quilted in. Beach Landscape #1 was quilted with feed dogs up and using my 1/4" foot on my Bernina. I really like quilting narrow lines, but it is time consuming! The next one has a bit of free motion quilting added.
I thought I better post since it's been so long since my last post. I have been crazy busy in my studio getting ready for QSDS! I leave tomorrow! Yippee! Saturday, I have the Sacred Threads Artists Reception to attend. I hope my quilt made it there without too many wrinkles.
I must finish packing my projects tonight and it's late already! I have some cool new pieces I am excited about. QSDS will be so much fun but really hard work, too. I will try to write a blog post while I'm there.
