I bought this Lemonade stand for Kamryn last year for Christmas. It is just adorable, and she loved setting it up and selling lemonade a couple of weeks ago while a neighborhood garage sale was happening in her neighborhood. She is a hard worker!

This is such a lovely quilt by Julie Sefton. Each color is carefully placed.
She liked the idea of ditch quilting are the squares, which really allows the colors to POP!!!
The small turquoise inner border is stunning, and it picks up the blue in the outer border!!
A gentle swag design was quilted in the outer border. Perfection!

Christina emailed me that she was sending another quilt to me for quilting. She asked me to email her when it arrived, which we always do, but she was unusually concerned about this one, NOW I know why! It measures approx. 48X79, and screams FUN! I look forward to trying out some modern quilting designs that I have not yet had the right quilt for. I planned on making one for myself so I could play with these type designs, but I don't ever seem to accomplish my piecing goals. So this will be perfect! I have several quilts awaiting my quilting so it will be some weeks before this one comes up for its turn, but you can bank on it being even more fun quilted!!! Thanks Christina!!

This quilt was made by Julie Sefton, and she named it 'Shirley's Journey'. I am sharing some photos of how I quilted it with Free Motion Baptist fans. Check out more photos in my 'Public Albums'.
This is a photo of the backing and the great label that Julie attached with details about the quilt. You really MUST check out her post today about this amazing quilt, if you haven't already!!! It is a great story behind this great quilt! I just love how it turned out, it kept the 'old' feel to it!! AMAZING!

I started cutting on my fabrics for my new bed quilt. I loved the fabrics Julie, Arlene and I chose on our visit to the Delta Patchworks Store earlier this month, but when I laid them out, I felt as if something was missing. Julie had mentioned that I could always order more divine fabrics from Delta or even go into my stash, so that is what I did. In my stash, I found this amazing brownish-gold batik, with the blue accents, it pulled it all together!!!
I am terrible at starting a project and then dropping interest quickly. The pattern I am using is extremely easy and there is no reason I can not get this done! I thought I would post about it, so I may feel an extra push to get it done to share with the quilting public.
Another thanks out to Julie for helping me read the instructions on this one! She was gracious enough the other night to stop what she was doing to call and walk me through it! Is that a great friend or what!??!!! Thanks Julie!
Ok, so I am off to cut! Big weekend for Kamryn's dance recital and Mother's Day. I hope you all have a great day with those love ones you will share your day with!!
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!
