J-Quilts blog


Last week I finished my recent project using the accuquilt diamond die, which I bordered around in these gorgeous moda fabrics and added a pale moda marble border to enlarge it slightly.  It won't be quilted in a while though, as I have a few customer quilts to finish first, with a rush order of two single quilts to be quilted this week.   This will give me some time to think about how I would like to quilt it too.  It will probably have a pantograph allover design for a sample to show customers choice of designs available. 
I also had my lovely large cutting/work table delivered last week which I had to wait for 5 weeks for delivery.  It is large and sturdy and a perfect height for measuring customer quilts and cutting fabrics.  My studio is coming together nicely, although it is clear that I am digging myself rather a large hole as it is becoming increasingly difficult to down size and move back home if I need to in the future, or to fit into a log cabin in our garden!!
Our two boys have had very exciting times too, with my eldest son Ben leaving secondary school and attending his school prom.  Here he is with his girlfriend all dressed up for the prom.
And here is Sam all dressed up for his Hollywoods nights party which was his leaving primary school party.  Don't they look smart.  I feel so old, as they are growing up so fast.  Both have big years this year, with Ben going onto college, and Sam moving up to Secondary school.
