Magic Binding from

I have been showing this technique to my customers for the past month or so. I cut my binding 1 3/8" for the main binding and 1 5/8" for the faux piping. I like to cut my bindings at 2 1/2" and once you sew these two together you get 2 1/2" binding. I just love the look of this binding, and if you are short your main binding fabric this helps stretch it so to speak.
Have fun with this all done by machine binding. No wonder they call it Magic!

Purple Takes the Cake (with a big slash of LIME)

Linda made this for her granddaughter who is graduating this year from high school. This quilt is a statement all into itself! The colors are so spectacular! I do believe the granddaughter will LOVE IT!

Here is the fun texture on the back of the quilt. I am not a big fan of solid backs, but in this case I really like the look of the quilting.

I knew this quilt for a young adult, so I quilted in some groovy designs.

Oh Those Crazy Cats

Lois's Embroidered Cats. These are so fun! I really love the mouse and fish too. This quilt was really fun to quilt. I laughed at the mice on this quilt, so funny!
Here is close up if the sashing and background quilting. Just look at that face! 

Here is the backing. Perfect for the crazy cats.

One More Lonestar Down!

I have quilted several Lonestar quilts since arriving in Yuma AZ! Here is another beauty, the color is off a lot in this picture, oops.  You will see the color better in the other pictures
Here's a close up of the feathers in the star.

Maybe I should take some photo taking classes! Not my best shots here. Still a beautiful quilt!
I am honored to quilt these quilts!
