2 Semi finishes

Have 2 more quilt tops finished.

First up is what I am calling Bargello of the Sea.  It doesn't show in the picture but the borders bring out the fish and coral in the one print.  Am thinking of gentle waves for the quilting.




Next up is from a local quilt shops BoM.  Will probably just do stitch in the ditch for this one.  Don't know how I will quilt the borders.  The picture is a little dark and yellowy guess I forgot to use the flash.

SRE & Embroidery Wisteria comparisons

As you probably all know I have been taking Crazy Quilting classes with Kathy Shaw.  During the course of these classes I have now done 3 Wisteria vines. Here they all are in the order in which they were done.

This one was done in August 2014


This one was done about 3 weeks ago.


This one was just finished today.


All so different.  Which one is your favorite.

What I have been working on.

Finally finsihed my April CQJP block.  Still not completely happy with the upper right corner but anything I tried just didn't seem to fit so am leaving it alone.

Can you find all 4 of the Easter Eggs?




Have most of the basic seams done for the May block.
