Another Day on Dorothy's Quilt

Spent some more of today working away on Dorothy's quilt.  So far, so good - I'm pretty happy with it!

Structured Quilting

I started quilting Dorothy's quilt last night.  Making it up as I go.  So far really pleased with it.  Her quilt reminds me of a few things - Celtic design and mosaic tiles.  I decided to work with the tiles idea.  It's going to be fairly densely quilted by the time it's done - necessary to pick up some "wavy" fabric.  And I think it will look nice, too!

Starting into the body of the quilt.  More pix to come as the work progresses.

First Judged Show

One of my customers entered a quilt that I quilted for her into the Calgary Stampede's Creative Arts & Crafts exhibition, which is a judged show.  The quilt won a second place ribbon.  The quilt is the Midnight at the Oasis quilt pattern by Jen Kingwell.  I took the top pix, the next one was taken at the Stampede and shows the ribbon - I grabbed it off Facebook so it's not a great pix.  It was a fun quilt to quilt - lots of tiny pieces to  work with - the idea is to make the piecing pop with the quilting.  I was happy with it when it was done.  Needless to say, I am very happy about the quilt winning a ribbon!
