I made another quilt for a client. Some of her kids clothes are in the quilt. She liked that.

And here is the border -



The School let me march - I have two classes this summer and will be totally finished the end of July.

Very cool. Looks like a lot of hard work. It must be difficult keeping the right shades of cadet blue block sides in order. Well, it would be for me ! Nice work. Bert

As usual, very interesting. You seem to sew out quilts very fast. I'm impressed!

Hey -

I did not worry about the way the tones fell as much on this quilt. The buyer said she wanted organisation and pattern but not too strict. And, she sent many denim and other fabrics to go in the quilt. The border is all my fabric.

Ive been slowly working on this one for a few months. I had a few false starts. The buyer is an old High School friend and her family was in the process of moving she told me to take my time and, I knew she meant it.

Im taking 2 summer classes. One at a time, and Ill really be finished with school in late July. I got lucky and only had to take electives. So, I took a movie class with a fave teacher and an art history class.

Everyone here seems to be doing well, I have been reading lots. I have not had much new stuff to say.

Tomorrow, Ill try to get the quilt basted and quilted. Im planning to only SITD - this pattern leaves a little un stitched piece in the centers of the "star" shape and, I like to nail all of that down and secure it. Its hard on needles when I quilt too fast. We will see how it goes this time.

Ive got another quilt like this to make - and another jean one. I like working with denim. It has many color variations. While it does not look like Stone - to me it does look a little like the Stonehenge fabrics.

It might be worth saying the Grand Quilter pieces denim including seams with 5 seams easily with a 70 or 80 needle. I do quilt the 3 layers of a denim quilt with a 100 needle -- and I TRY to quilt slower. I only have trouble when I go to fast.

Great job Portland!

I'm so happy to hear school is just about finally done! With your degree will you get a job near where you live - not have to move to some other place?

Love these Block quilts, have not tried one yet - but you are right, the denim has so many good colors to them, I bet they do look very stone washed. She will be Very Happy :-)

I did finish another top, but had to leave that to quilt later - MUST make myself some summer clothes, it is close to 100 every day now. Then I can't wait to get back to quilting :-)

Always good to see your work!!

This is a very interesting quilt. I notice the bright ones here and there. If there any significance to them or did you just do them randomly? Also I see all the steps and in the back is like you have black holes. Where you could fall down in between the columns. It's like looking down on a city landscape seeing the tops of the buildings. As some if columns are bigger with with the shading effect. I've seen much less interesting pictures in a museum. It's stunning.
