I'm thrilled when someone sends me a photo of a quilt they have made from one of my designs, and always ask if I can post it on my blog so all of you can see, and this quilt is no exception. Nancy Payne of Oregon sent me this photo of her version of my "Vintage Tiles Revisited" which she called "Never Again". She made some changes to her quilt to add her own touch to the design.  I love how she added the butterflies in the corners of the border.  Nancy assured me the "Never Again" title didn't mean she was put off doing any more hand applique quilts, she was just going to take a break.
Unfortunately, the quilting doesn't show up in the photo, but Nancy asked me to acknowledge Lisa Taylor of Waldport,Oregon who did a fabulous job on the machine quilting.

On the home front, I've been busy trying to get a project made for Lecien to showcase their 20th anniversary collection of Yoko Saito's Centenary Collection. I can't show you any photos until after Quilt Market, but will post it when I can.

I got the baby quilt I made for Ayden back from the quilter on Thursday and have already got the binding sewn on the front.  I know, it's so out of character! lol
I just have to hand stitch it down and I'll be able to show you a photo.  It's hard to believe Ayden is already 6 months old.  His parents had him at the pediatrician last week for his 6 month checkup and everything is fine.  He is slowly but steadily gaining weight and now weighs in at a healthy 13 pounds, 6 ounces.

Bye for now.

Oh my she did a lovely job- I have the pattern for this one saved and really want to get to it. I'm looking forward to see the project you're designing for Lecien! Good to hear Ayden is doing so well.
