Some recent finishes worth sharing

A former student of mine and his wife recently had a baby. They met at a school with green and orange school colors and he works in construction now I thought these fabrics were very appropriate. A simple zig zag using my WW Baby #2 design.

This is a Triangle Frenzy design using Catalina fabric available currently from my shop. My mom put this together for me as a sample.

This was a 'quick commission' request and went together in no time! Side borders on a panel, quilt and bind. All available in my shop. Here is a link to the kit.

This was a long time in the making ....a Gen. Physics College professor of mine from many years ago moved near me in retirement. I got reacquainted with he and his wife but he later lost her to Parkinsons. Some time went by and he got reacquainted with his grade school sweetheart. After many notes were passed, one that said 'Will You Marry Me' was intercepted by the teacher. Many years later he wrote it again and she said Yes. So, I thought this "Paper Obsessed" fabric line was perfect for me to make up an envelope-like quilt. In the spring this year my husband and I were able to visit them and present them with this quilt, "That Note". This was adapted from several envelope-like quilts that I have seen. I added a bit of additional fabric for the large envelope (red "Letters from the Heart" and insert - "I Do"), but otherwise I used a FQ pack of Paper Obsessed and yardage of the notebook paper fabric and Eclectic Elements Postal Stripe for the binding. I used the Envelopes fabric on the back.

I had the opportunity to go out to the Root Pickers, which are within a few miles of the shop, and take a photo of the Tahoe quilt. All 3 wishes fabrics available at the shop. Separator diamonds and background are both Northcott-Toscana also available.
