Frame Friday and a couple of top finishes

Hello 2015!!  What a great quilting start I've gotten on this year.  That humongous log cabin king size quilt - not only are the blocks done but they are all sewn together!!  This thing is plenty big enough to handle the shrinkage from quilting and the first washing, I LOVE it.  It's subtle and colorful and everything I like.  I'm going to go some fancy stitching on the star to bring that out a big more.  Can't wait to get this big ol' thing on the frame.  Oh boy will you at the mess in that room.  I was so busy getting those blocks together that I didn't tidy up a bit.  Plenty of time left in 2015 for that tidy up stuff :)

I also have a tumbler in Kaffe Fassett prints.  Just an extra throw for the bed for little naps or extra chilly nights.  Nothing subtle about this one at all!

But I have to wait to get those on the frame because I have Marie's square pants quilt on the frame.  I love her fabrics.  You can't tell from the pictures but one of the prints has gold in it, so it sparkles when I'm quilting, so fun!!  Oh boy can you see that one spot where I forgot the pebbles in the feather vein?  I always forget something when I do custom quilting.  This is why it's a good idea to take pictures *while* you are working on something.  Easy fix when you catch it while it's still on the frame.

Do you wee where I skipped the pebbles, you know what I'll be doing first on this one.

I love pictures from under the frame
Hope everyone has had a great start for 2015!  Check out the linky parties on the left side bar, there's a few for Fridays'

  2. Yep, photos help a lot with color, wrong turned pieces, blank spots that need quilting. Your work is gorgeous as ever, Sue.

  3. I would have never noticed - even if you had quilted it for me and I had it in hand. I'm just not that particular about things!
