A Sparkly ✨ Sherpa Christmas πŸŽ„

I love this large panel I found at My Girlfriend's Quilt Shoppe while we were driving through Utah this summer! 

Just quilt and bind! I quilted it with freehand swirls:

⻘ Blue & White η™½

Blue and white quilts are a classic color combo. Combined with a log cabin design, Missy has made a beautiful, classic quilt!

Here are some close-ups:

⼆ Two By Two ⼆

My sister, Quilter Bonnie, is a very prolific quilter! I've quilted 44 quilts for her over the past 7 years. And she's made more quilts that she quilted herself!

Here are her latest finishes:
Now, let's get to the close-ups:

πŸ‘œ Indigo Handbag πŸ‘œ

While on our road trip, my handbag zipper was getting stuck. Back home, I started on a new one. I already had the fabrics. 

The first step was to quilt the upper fabric to the Annie's Soft and Stable. The quilting doesn't show up on the indigo print, so here's a picture of the backside:

Grab πŸ‘Š & Go πŸƒπŸΌ To California

In prep for our road trip to California, I made DH and myself each a case for our laptops:
The Grab and Go Sleeve from Sew Sweetness is adjustable to any size device or book. It is part of the Minikins Season 1 pattern bundle. 

Although the pattern doesn't call for it, I like to quilt my fabric with the Annie's Soft and Stable. Quilting adds so much depth and stability to fabric and quilts. You can clearly see the "Egg Carton" quilting on DH's case, below:

The surgery was successful and Mom is on the rise!

🌲Northwoods Vibes 🐻

At first glance you might think this quilt was made in Minnesota, with the Northwoods vibes going on. But it was made in Nashville by my friend, Missy!

On the other hand, it was quilted in Minnesota! I quilted birchwood leaves across the quilt:

⾚ Red Fuji πŸ—»

Meet my entry for the 2019 Global Inspiration MQ Challenge! If you're going to the Minnesota Quilters Annual Show in Rochester, MN, over the next few days, June 13- 15, look for my quilt in the Fabric Challenge section:
The challenge fabric packet came with 4 Cherrywood fat quarters--red, blue, light green and yellow. We could add 4 international fabrics, plus a white or a black fabric. More than 50% of the quilt had to be the Cherrywood fabrics.
  
Mount Fuji is the most popular art subject in Japan, so that's immediately where my mind went when the challenge was introduced. My inspiration comes from a famous woodblock print by Hokusai, called "Red Fuji", also known as "Fine Wind, Clear Morning", created in 1832:

✈️ A Transportation Quilt 🚚

My quilting neighbor, Patty, made this quilt for her 4 year old grandson, Elliot. She saw something like it on Pinterest and drew out the design on her computer!

Patty chose "Modernish 4" for the quilting. It looks like an intense driver's ed course, which seems appropriate for all those vehicles!
