Let's get right to the show and tell, shall we?  First up is a baby quilt I made.  Awww!
An original pattern baby quilt for Amadea and Frank's little "cowboy or cowgirl?" which was the theme of the shower.

I really love the colors I chose for this quilt.  It is so hard when the dang parents won't find out the sex of their baby to help us quilters out.  But I think this strikes the right balance between boy brown and blue and girly yellow and flowers.
boot detailing, two are girl boots, two are boy boots.  (notice the heels)

I stitched "cowboy or cowgirl?" in the top border, and their last name in the bottom border.  Each star got a "badge" saying, this one below says "Diaper Duty"

I quilted this beautiful purple and rosy pink quilt for a new customer whom I would love to work with again.  I was in a cheery mood throughout this one!  It was even more exuberant than my poor camera work would have you believe!

Here is the back of the quilt.  I free hand quilted a simple spiral roses pattern.

I have quilted 5 of the 6 tiger quilts that I was asked to quilt by members of our guild who participated in a workshop.  They were a lot of fun to do - #6 should be done by tomorrow. .. 

This is a customer's pineapple quilt, super queen size:

I quilted simple daisies and loops, and some flair for the corners!

I have been busy teaching classes and designing patterns for our table runner of the month program at Gathering Stitches.  Here is the June table runner I designed and made with Lakehouse fabrics.  (Kits are available if you are interested!! Just $15 plus shipping, contact me!)

Here is the May runner I designed and made, hanging on my design wall, pre-quilting.  Can't figure out how to rotate it.  ha ha.  And I can't locate a picture of mine finished.  oh well.
 And here are some customer interpretations of the May table runner I designed:
Darlene added lovely foliage and metallic quilting to her lily of the valley.

This is what "un-sewing" looks like on the longarm.  Yikes.

aww, this quilty blog is interrupted to bring you a bouquet from my sweetie, picked from our yard.  

This is going to be an awesome Strips n Curves quilt!!  I am teaching this class and making one along with the students. Here is my array of fabrics to go with that awesome amy bradley focus fabric.  stay tuned!

Ok, now the "tell" part of show and tell.  Come see us at the Southern New Mexico Festival of Quilts at the Otero County Fairgrounds in Alamagordo!  June 21-24 we will be there, representing Nolting longarm quilting machines, our own designs, and if we get our shipment in time, we are also a new distributor for Quilter's Rule products!!  Yay!!!

Off to finish July tablerunner and the last Tiger!!
