Another Finish

I can't believe it's been 6 months since my last post.  It's been a long, hot summer, but quite a productive one. After the renovations were finally finished I had to spend some time making curtains so my quilting had to go on the back burner for a while.  I no sooner finished the curtains when I had to put everything away again to get the house in order for my brother-in-law's visit.  He returned to Scotland last week and I've been able to get my machine set up and get back to the quilt I started at the beginning of the year.  No photos yet, but it's another quilt using the Japanese taupes.

I did manage to finish another quilt that had been hanging in the closet since before Mom passed away.
Karen Veenhuizen of Oakville did the quilting, and she did a fabulous job. Here's a photo.  No name for the quilt yet... and the binding hasn't been sewn on yet!

New Quilt Photos

It's been a while since I've had some photos to share.  The weather has finally co-operated and I was able to get outside yesterday , and with my husband's assistance, take some photos.

Here is a photo of my "Roses In Dresden" quilt.  I made this quilt quite a " few" years ago, but it is a big quilt and needed custom quilting so I had to save up my pennies to get the quilting done.  It was beautifully quilted by Karen Power of Oakville.
Roses In Dresden
The next quilt was made last year.
 "Nireko's Roses Revisited"  was made using a fat quarter bundle of  Lecien's original line of  Mrs. March's Basic, which was sent to me by Nireko, who used to be the "go to" person when Lecien was in California.
My original design "Nireko's Roses" was made using Lecien's taupes.  Here are photos of the two quilts.

"Nireko's Roses"

I can't decide which version I like the best!

This last quilt was also made in 2016.

Dresden Plate

"Nireko's Roses Revisited" and the Dresden Plate quilt were both quilted by Karen Veenhuizen of Oakville.
She did a fabulous job!  I wish I could take better photos so you could see the quilting.

I haven't been able to fix the problem I'm having with leaving comments on your blog posts. They're still bouncing back to me as "undeliverable".

Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter.

Bye for now.
