This is one of the prettiest quilts I have ever quilted, I just wish it could have lived with me! The pattern is called "Faceted Jewels" and it is put out by Glad Creations. It is almost all batiks, some of the lights are an oriental fabric and together it is just stunning. The customer pieced it beautifully and it lays so flat, it was a pleasure to quilt it.
I don't have anything of my own to show right now. My Pfaff has been in the shop for 2 weeks and even though I pulled out my Featherweight, I haven't had time to sit down and sew. I did paint my "studio" AKA the living room. I've rearranged the furniture that was in there so it left me with more wall space to hang quilts. I've got a few on the walls, I'll post pictures when I finish!
This week is Vacation Bible School at our church. My 16 year old daughter is directing this year and she has done a great job of putting it all together. I'm very proud of her! There are about 40 kids signed up to participate as well as a crew of teen and parent volunteer helpers. This is the first time I've worked on VBS and I had a lot of fun last night. I'm the registrar, so for me the hard part is done. I don't know that we'll get many more kids to sign up tonight. When I finished my part last night, I helped in the kitchen with snacks. Tonight I hope to sneak around and see what happens in the groups.
