Back from Holidays

I have been noticeably absent from my blog for the last month or so.  We have just returned from another wonderful beach holiday - I think the following photo sums up our holiday perfectly!

From a quilting perspective, I don't have much to show for the last month.  I usually take the month of January off from customer quilting, taking some time to work on my own projects.  I have started another pieced quilt - the Urban Nine Patch quilt by Jenny of Sew Kind of Wonderful.  I am a long timer admirer of Jenny's piecing and her incredible machine quilting.  My Urban Nine Patch is being made with solid fabrics only and I am hoping to eventually quilt it in a similar manner to Jenny's quilt.  Below are the first blocks I have made.
I have also started another trapunto quilt - here is a snippet - not sure how it will turn out - there is a long way to go yet.
With the end of January fast approaching, it is time to return to customer quilting - I am looking forward to seeing what quilts 2013 will bring.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend and as always, happy quilting!


  1. I love those Urban 9 patch blocks and the fabrics you're using are sublime!! Your trupunto project looks wonderful.

  5. The trapunto project looks very interesting......have to ask about the paper on that to help transfer the pattern or are you going to stitch through the paper.....Cathy
