Customer Quilt sneak peek....

I soooo wish I could show you the front of this absolutely beautiful quilt, but sadly it will have to wait as it will be in a book later this year.  I didn't design the quilt, a fabric designer friend of mine did... I will keep it all under wraps until she gives me the go to tell you more- but for now I just had to share the back, which is my favorite part due to the unique pattern the quilting created and the high contrast of the thread to show it off.  She asked for organic straight lines and hills- I didn't try too hard to make all the lines straight or evenly spaced-as the organic feel would then be lost- I just kept my shoulders loose and tried to stay in the zone and quilted my little heart out.  I so love how it came out... hope you do too!

Eye Candy from Road to CA

I had a great time at the Road to CA show a few weekends ago.  I kept meaning to share these fun pics, but life has distracted me over and over.  Oh well, better late then never right?  There were so many beautiful quilts at the show.  Lots of quilts with beads and lots of bright modern fun color.  I just had to snap a few photos of my favorites, but I could have spent all day and filled up my SD card with all the eye candy there was there to see.  I hope you enjoy!
