Stack & Slash!!

I have FINALLY found another quilter. The first and only one that I have ever used had NO children when I met her....and then had 3 over the next 5 years. Needless to say since #3 she has been on permanent maternity leave. (Well she does her own quilts and immediate family, but the last time I talked to her still no paying clients!!) I have a growing a stack of tops needing quilting but I have been avoiding making any serious inquiries..........but how long to you reckon I could go on like that??

And THANKFULLY I have found a goodun.....Price was good, work is good....SPEED exceptional!! The day we (me with 1 quilt, girlfriend with 2) dropped our quilts there....Mary was loading a new one on the machine, so we were at least after that one. That was on Thursday the 28th! To our surprise we received a call on Tuesday the 9th to say that all 3 quilts were READY!!!!!

From the beginning this quilt was me trying to step out of my box, so I thought I better carry it through with the quilting! Was thinking brown or beige for the thread but went for PINK!! It is hard to see the design but it is really funky weird floral shapes!!

The Binding I am saving for quilt camp, the plan to have a stack of quilts with binding machined on ready for sitting and relaxing and hand stitching!!!

Did I tell you I am going to Quilt Camp?? YOU should come too! Visit Mrs Martin and see if she has any places left!!!

I like that quilt! I would be out of my comfort zone putting it together, too, but the end result is fabulous.

Lovely..... and lovely quilting also.
I have a lovely new lady who is close and I must visit as my two super quilting friends...even more than two actually are all a fair way away.
