This is Yvonne’s Island Sunrise quilt done in batik fall colors. This is the ninth one I have quilted since our guild held a Judy Niemeyer workshop for this pattern back in September 2012. I quilted free hand swirls in the outer border and in the background of the curved blocks. I SID around all the circles and spikes and used medium brown So Fine thread. We are enjoying a break in the cold weather with a high of –7’c today… feels like we are having a heat wave!
Tomorrow our guild is having a UFO day and since I do not have any UFO’s I’ll have to start a project so I have a UFO by the end of the day! This is what I’ll be playing with, the fabric collection is called Sunnyside and I’ll share what pattern I’m making once I have a few blocks made.
I have been quilting for 20 years and have turned my passion for quilting into a home business. Tamarack Shack Longarm Quilting opened it's doors January 2009.
This blog is where I share photos of my quilts as well as my clients quilts. I have recently become addicted to dyeing fabric especially snow dyeing as we have snow 6 months of the year. I also throw in few personal stories about living on the shores of Schist Lake, in Northern Manitoba, as life isn't all about quilting.
