WOW – February 27, 2013

I’m so happy to post my WOW this week.  The last two weeks I have been AWALL my computer got a virus and I lost three days of work. Then last week we had server problems and on top of that we are in the middle of closing the biggest deal we have done in five years. 

I finished my Promise is a Promise quilt.  This is one of my favorite quilts that I have made. I ended up using clear monofilament to quilt were the words are on the blocks. I was really worried about distracting from all the embroidery.  I think it worked well.


You will see that some of my friend escaped the block and started roaming around the quilt.


Yesterday if finished another quilt that just needed to be quilted but I did not have time to take any photos last night so I will try to do it tonight and do another blog post this week. 

Have a great week,

Regards Lisa

WOW – February 6, 2013

I have been able to keep up my momentum and I finished my Henrietta Whiskers quilt and started quilting my Promise is a Promise quilt. This is the last quilt I have to complete for the quilt show. I will really feel good to have all four complete. 
All in all I’m very happy with the quilting on Henrietta Whiskers. I’m in love with the design I used on the border and I plane to use this again in the future. 


I quilted yesterday for about seven hours and got a good start on my Promise is a Promise quilt.  I’m not sure exactly what to do on the embroidery blocks all I have done so far is stich in the ditch around the block and quilt around the border of the embroider.  I feel like it need more quilt to please chime in if you have suggestion on the quilting.  I have used a small floral and leave design in the sashing.


Hope everyone has a good week.  Hopefully I can show you another finish next week.
