Another house quilt on the longarm frame

A nasty cold has kept me company the last week, and not much quilty stuff going on. I have several projects I want to finish and work with, and can't wait to get rid of these bugs. 

Got to load up Astrid's house quilt #2 yesterday, and I have finished quilting some of the blocks. I took the photo with my phone, so it might not be the best one. Had to try writing a blog post using my phone and figured if it works good, I might be writing blog posts a bit more often ;-) 
I really love doing this custom quilting, even if it is time consuming working with rulers. 
I'm using a wool batting that will make the quilting pop up. Using the So Fine thread. 
I haven't quilted the borders yet, but will do so before I move down to row #2.

Wish you all a great new week! 
Happy quilting,

I've missed Blogland!

I've really missed Blogland! Haven't written a blog post for such a long time!

I'm so happy Spring finally came, and with the nice weather the last days it looks like  Summer is coming now :-)

Captured this photo in my brother's back yard a week ago. Looks like there will be lots of  blueberries this year :-)

I've been doing some sewing and quilting since my last blog post. This is a new Belle Wave quilt using Moda fabrics. Scraps from my scrap bin. Quilted a freemotion pattern on it, and since I used wool batting it really shows up. My friend Kathy did show me how to do this gorgeous pattern :-)

I have been quilting some client quilts too. This one is Astrid's beautiful batic quilt with gorgeous colors. She chose the panto pattern that looks like fire flowers. Perfect for this quilt.

The next quilt is a top I quilted for our charity group. I didn't know Astrid made this, so when I did ask her to add the binding, she told me she had made this and would love to finish it :-) Freemotion pattern on this one.

This is a Buggy Barn quilt also made by Astrid. She wanted me to quilt what I felt was right for this quilt, and I figured this would look great custom quilted. I'm so glad she liked it!
 This is the back of the quilt. Love to see the texture on the back of quilts!

This is a lovely quilt made by Sølvi, and I quilted this using freemotion quilting. I know this quilt has a special story, and I'm so glad she liked it.

I got to finish another quilt today, but have to wait till tomorrow to take some photos. It's a large quilt, so I need help from Hubby to hold it up for a photo shoot :-)

Happy sewing,
