There Is A Rooster Flying West...

and his name is...

I donated this quilt to a fundraiser that benefited the Muscular Dystrophy Association.  My good friend Carolyn won the quilt and has been very patiently waiting for it's arrival.  I am happy to say that it is ready to fly west to California!



I quilted a lot of texture in to the body.


I love the bamboo treatment on the tail feathers.


The border has a sun in all 4 corners.  If you look real close you will see the words "Suns up Get up" quilted on the inner part of each sun.  My nephew Jordan used to run in to his mom's bedroom when he was little and holler this at her.  With the bold background in batik I thought this saying suited the quilt perfectly.




Would you like to make Rob Roy for yourself?  Visit Florine Johnson's website and grab you up a pattern!  She has 12 to choose from!

I also finished another customer quilt this week.  It is going to my client's granddaughter this weekend for her birthday.  It is a shabby chic gingham quilt just perfect for a little girl.



I love the texture that line dancing gives to a quilt.

That is stunning! I love the fabric and the background. I don't know how you do the quilting so well in such a tiny area! It's amazing.

You know I love Rob Roy - and your quilting looks terrific! I received my pincushion and absolutely love it! I haven't use crushed walnuts before- That is one pincushion that won't roll around and fall off the table! Thank you so much

T, I am so glad to see some of your quilting-you had just stopped when we met due to health reasons and I am so happy for you that you are back on your beloved machine. You are an amazing quilter-line dancing indeed !~! Wow, I am suitably impressed with your work--someday I would like to make one gorgeous enough to warrant sending it to you to be quilted by your talented hands. The Rob Roy is a great-looking quilt and you have embellished it beyond belief. Lovely, my dear Thearica.
