Here is the custom quilt currently in process, ready to go on the frames. I'm just shaking my head. I can't even believe it myself. I am so excited to see the quilting motif that I have planned to really finish this off.

Here is my variation of Ice Crystalz. The snowflake print fabric is actually shimmery, although that doesn't show up in the photo, and really looks pretty up close and personal.
|Front of Ice Crystalz quilt. It looks so wintery. After counting the stitches I realize now what took so long. I absolutely love it!|
|Even the back is looking pretty sweet.|

Wow! I am thrilled with the finished product!
Next in the line-up, warm coppery/rust terra with a splash of aqua set off with unbleached muslin for this rail fence pattern. I'm crossing my fingers to be able to really make this quilt special by hand-quilting some sort of double wedding ring motif. In my quest to quilt freehand without stencil, this should be a challenge.

Funny thing happened yesterday. I had checked the mail around noon and nothing was there. I don't know why but around midnight for some odd reason I checked the mailbox and lo and behold I got the biggest shock. I brought this package in, totally confused, not expecting any outstanding deliveries, ripped it open and read the nicest card.

Had a few scraps of fabric leftover: Here we go, quilt near completion. I just need to add the sleeve to the back and it will be ready to go. Almost knocked the postal driver down getting this special delivery. The fabrics sent to make this custom wall hanging in the Bargello style quilt are bold,beautiful and vibrant. I couldn't help daydreaming with the sunny yellow, ocean blues and Florida orange while I pieced this together. Top done, time to get it on the frames for quilting.

Here is the next quilt top in the lineup. When I saw this paisley fabric I was in shock, then I absolutely fell in love with it. It's bold and beautiful, vibrant and amazing in this quilt pattern called Ozark Puzzle(the variation of Drunkards Path) teamed up with purple and a splash of gold.

So much for a blank canvas. Are you loving it? As soon as I picked up this fabric I knew it had a purpose. Are you seeing my vision? There is an appliqued pink ribbon in the centre that I will reveal as soon as I can quilt up that far.
