April Showers...................makes quilting time!

Here we are again, another month gone! Where does all the time go? I finished my sisters quilt.

She wanted black and white but I had to throw in the red corner stones to give it some life <G>. And then used quilted circles to soften it. Have to get it mailed!
Then I dug out my Double Delight, a Bonnie Hunter pattern. I finished it last year and then put it away. It still needed borders so got them on and realized I'd forgotten a border. It was supposed to have a narrow border of dark blue before the final wide rose one. Oh well. I'd cut and mitered those borders so they are not coming off!

I love that stripe fabric. This quilt is now on my longarm and the first row is done. I get to play all weekend!
This was supposed to be Shipshewana retreat week but due to car issues I had to cancel my trip. Nice thing about having a studio separate from the main house is that I can do a private retreat where my family cannot bother me <VBG>. Well they can but are mostly too lazy to walk the 200 ft to get to me! I will plug in my IPod and turn up the tunes and my machine and I will create away.............
On my machine upstairs I have 'Alex Grey All Wrapped Up' A design I created for my Alex Grey art loving son.
This is my EQ design for it. Its going to be a fun quilt to put together. All batiks.

Well enough for one night!
