Anita's quilts and quilting

A professional longarm machine quilter for hire and some of the work I've done.

Weather is hot

I’ve been staying busy indoors to beat the heat.  Even with air conditioning the studio gets pretty hot in the afternoon.  I finished this quilt.
I put a feather design on the outside and the inside border.  A leaf design on the setting triangles and line dancing on the pieced squares.
I did a cute line danced butterfly on the inside blocks.
Here’s another look at the quilting.

Then I finished this small quilt too.  I couldn’t do much to it because whatever I did would distract from the design.  I did simple stitch in the ditch around everything.

A look from the back.
Now……. I have my own quilt on the machine and some of the quilting done.
Except for working on these quilts, and a couple of sewing repair projects, I’ve not done much the last few days.  My house gets way too hot in the afternoon to work.  I could crank up the air conditioner but that would also create a much higher utility bill.
Fair time is coming up very fast.  Or at least it seems that way to me.  I want to finish this quilt and my SILs quilt this week if I can.  I’m not sure if I will get the third quilt done or not.  Gonna try finishing it…. only if it doesn’t cause me to start to stress.

    It's hot here, too. The quilts your customers have brought you are really fun, I like the tribute to the King of Pop– but I love the one of yours you're working on. Gorgeous!
