I’m back! Moving is behind me, and while I still have some settling, organizing and decorating to do, I have found time to create again, and that makes me very happy.
My Mom and I spent this past weekend at a quilt retreat in Ankeny, Iowa, a ‘burb of Des Moines and I managed to finish the binding on my Kiwi Kisses quilt that I first showed you a month ago. Here it is in all it’s Lime & Black glory:
The front and binding are all from the Timeless Treasures Kiwi line of fabric, hence the name of the quilt. It’s made from Atkinson’s Designs Happy Hour book.
It was quilted by a friend of mine on her Gammill, click on this photo to enlarge it, I dream of one day being able to do free motion quilting that looks like this:
The back is pieced, and I love it as much as the front! The only piece not from the Kiwi line is the black & white print at the right of the photo, from the Luna line by Maywood Studio.
This one I will definitely be keeping for myself…it was made as a shop sample for Quilter’s Cupboard. BTW, if you come to Des Moines for the AQS show in a few weeks, be sure to stop by our shop, it’s a great quilt store with something for everyone!
I also made two tops for kid quilts (finished photos to come soon, I hope!), assisted Mom in completing two of her tops, ate too much junk food, and basically had a great, relaxing time! I have a four day overnight retreat coming up in a month…can’t wait!
Stop back soon, I have a fun artsy project to share with you tomorrow! And studio pics are coming…you don’t want to miss that!
