A start on a double wedding ring.

I also decided I needed more practice with curves so I cut out and started piecing a red, white, and black double wedding ring quilt.  I think it's going to be really pretty once I have quilted the heck out of it!  More to come on this one as well.  

Playing with orange peels

I have been wanting to make an orange peel/petal quilt but was a little intimidated until I watched Missouri star quilt company's  Jenny Doan's tutorial explaining how to achieve a great needle turn look using fusible interfacing. Here's my first try at it.  Worked like a charm!  

Within an hour I had chosen some material from my stash and cut out enough peel pieces to make a queen size bed quilt. I will post more pictures later. 

Green chevron quilted

Well my machine is now fixed and I am up and running again. 

Love this chevron. This is just for our home.  I quilted it with double quilters dream wool batting and backed it with a medium weight white minky backing.  Now just needs a white binding and I can slip it on the bed.
