Well, I have finished the first quilt(s) in the new Nook! All of my finishes this week are commissioned projects from The Quilt Nook. The first is a memory quilt for a graduation gift. The recipient was in awe of her mom for
getting this for her- I called it “Shabby Chic Memories”. She said it matched her bedroom perfectly! I would have to say it was hard to give this one to them! I may have to make a quilt in this fabric line, Simplicity by Moda, for myself.
Here are some close-ups:
The next finishes were for going away presents. They are on their way to the customer as we speak and she will be presenting them on Wednesday I believe…I will find out then how their recipients liked them! : )
Otherwise I managed to clean up and reorganize (it gets crazy in my room when I am working LOL!) the Nook and it is ready today for me to get back at it. I took the class on my machine a couple of weeks ago and now I guess I need to schedule the embroidery class too so I actually am using my 440 with actual knowledge instead of winging it…I tell you though it was a dream working on that memory quilt with a good, scratch that, GREAT machine! Thanks Bernina! I have been trying to use it on my own but Vista is giving me grief!!! I think tomorrow I will call and schedule the class!
Well, since the Nook is cleaned up and ready for more creativeness, I think today will be a day to work on personal projects and see if I can whittle down my WIP’s and TBQ’s lists on the side. Hoping to get them completed before my Cinderberry Stitches patterns arrive (hopefully tomorrow: ) – more on those later!)
Happy Memorial day and God Bless our troops (and my Marine!)
The quilt is lovely, looks like you’ve been getting a lot done! Wish I could say the same.
Your quilt is so beautiful and the pillow—oh, my, it is truly breath-taking! You did such a gorgeous job!
What a beautiful quilt! I just love the small details, espcially the yo-yo grouping!>~Emily
