You know you husband loves you being a quilter when you

 so you don't get blood on your quilt

Stolen Quilt | "Gray Bird At Dusk"

No automatic alt text available.
Just learned that "Gray Bird At Dusk" was stolen from a local Gallery. Please contact me if you see it.
"Grey Bird At Dusk" highlights white hand embroidery on a grey bird standing watch. A sentinel if you will.
Measuring 23 1/2 inches X 28 1/2 inches. Notice the silver/grey button eye for a pop of whimsy.
For this composition I challenged myself to only use gray fabrics - a stretch since I usually use many bright colors. And since I'm still having so much fun creating birds, it made sense to make a larger version of the Bird Art from the April Art Daily 2016 Challenge. I was delighted when it came home from a competition with a blue ribbon. Hanging sleeve makes is a breeze to hang.

Tweaking Flowers | Day 205 A Block A Day Challenge

Tweaking this composition to make the flowers more prominent 
and added the lime stitching for contrast.
 The flowers were originally the light purple fabric like in the centers.
 Any guesses as to how I changed the outer flower sections for 
Day 205 A Block A Day Challenge?

Me & My Guy
No automatic alt text available.
I'm thankful for 39 years of marriage today and how fitting that I would finish 
our new queen sized bed quilt today - Day 195 A Block A Day Challenge with hubby's favorite verse on the label. "As for me and my house we will serve the LORD - Joshua 24:15"
Image may contain: indoor
 For our honeymoon, we camped in a borrowed Popup throughout the Blue Ridge mountains and joked of how we were just going to stay and have our stuff sent to us. So we made plans to move here and God has allowed us to here for many years now. And yes, I took hand sewing on our honeymoon.

Curvy Quilt "Corners" | Day 190 A Block A Day Challenge

No automatic alt text available.
Curvy quilt "corners" are not necessarily easier than squared ones 
but I do like the effect much better. 
Day 190 includes the 2nd "corner" and a decent distance on the 3rd side. 
Slow progress is still progress.

The Cat;s Meow | Day 184 A Block A Day Challenge

No automatic alt text available.
"The cat's meow," an expression referring to something 
that is considered outstanding; coined by 
American cartoonist Thomas A. Dorgan (1877–1929)
4th corner, final block and a bit bitter sweet for
Day 184 A Block A Day Challenge. This green cat/purple batik 
Free Style Cobblestone Block is hand quilted highlighting 
the cats then in a rectangular spiral. Interestingly, 
it will lay over hubby's feet on the bed and even though he doesn't care for cats,
 I still often tell him, "he's the cat's meow."
