I finished the Japanese Garden. The pattern is from a German Magazine called Burda.
Some of the fabric I used in this quilt I started buying about 8 years ago at a Quilt Show in San Jose, California. The rest, after I saw the pattern in the magazine.
I saw this quilt and just new the person for it. I won’t be able to say the name because I’m not sure if she reads this blog or not. So I just won’t spoil the surprise. I know she loves those fabrics.
So here are some pictures.
I had a very bad time taking them since the quilt is so big and the sun was shining. I hope you still can see.
and here is one more with the detail from the quilting. I used superior thread "sand castle" and sometimes I had a hard time seeing what I did because it blended in so good with the fabric. But it turned out real good. ( at least thats what I think, Im very happy with the out come. lol )
It still is a while before she gets it. But I’m happy I got it finished because now I have to get busy on the Baby Quilts and Diaper Bag, bibs and so on.
My Grandsons due date is July and that is just around the corner. Lol.
Today I felt him kicking, gee that felt sooooo good. I’m all excited.
But know, I will tell you first about the new man in my life.
His name is Richard and he lies around all day long on my iron board. Lol . He likes it hot.
He was kind of short so I had to extend him a bit. Lol . I tried out right away the feather quilting
Diane Gaudynski showed us with the free motion quilting challenge at Sew Cal Gal blog.
He was the hit the last time when I had the girls over to sew. We had a bunch of laughs and giggles.
You all know what happens when you get his towel hot.
Well that’s for now. I hope you all have a lovely Sunday.
