I finished a quilt top that was started in the year 2000...hand pieced Grandmother's Flower Garden. We were living in Germany at the time and pieced a lot of the GFG flowers while sitting in our garden. We had a rented garden plot...actually, it was a huge plot with a little garden house on the property and we spent most weekends there...loved that garden! I brought the finished GFG flowers over to the States with me and had just about enough of the hand piecing so I appliqued them down to a floral background. Not sure why I chose a floral background. But there you go. The blocks sat for years but I got them out and have sashed the blocks in a variegated yellow fabric and it is now waiting to be quilted. In my spare time. ;)
This quilt will have a lot of memories in it. :)
Here are a few tutorials that I found interesting:
Don't you just love the internet? Honestly, there is so much to find on there and so much to learn! :)
This month's Oil of the Month at Spark Naturals is Bergamot...one of my favorites! It is such a refreshing floral scent and I really like to diffuse it on dreary days or on days where I just need a pick-me-up. Rudi just called to tell me he seems to be coming down with a cold and will *need some of my potions*! LOL! It is back to school time...

Quilts are coming in really fast...must be September! If there are quilts you need finished by Christmas give me a call and I will schedule a time for your quilt. Christmas will be here before you know it and it is a really busy time for the Studio. :)
I am also planning on having a sale on some retail items and need to go through my personal quilting books and purge a bit so, if I have the time, I will do so and they will be for sale.
I have an Etsy Store and and Ebay Store now. Go on over and see if there is anything you would like. I hope to continue to stock both of them.
And...the customer quilts...
Yep! Been busy! LOL!
Anyhow, let me know if you want your machine serviced next week!
