I'm Still Here!

I haven't been posting much but I'm still here! Brace yourselves this is going to be a long post!
You can click on any of the photos for a larger view.

I've been doing a lot of work on my LongArm machine. Here is a Vanity Square quilt pieced by Val using Mambo fabrics plus a few others. Val pieced this masterpiece for her teenage daughter.

I quilted Twilight on this one in honor of "New Moon", set to start in theaters on November 20th.
I have quilted Vanity Square in 2 other colorways which you can view here. (These two were pieced by Val's sister)

Because Val's work is so awesome and because I always enjoy viewing others workspace I thought I would share some pictures of Val's studio workspace.

There she is, Isn't her stash out of this world? It makes me weak at the knees!

See her project on the design wall. That quilt won a ribbon at our local guild show!

I've also been doing some piecing work. My sister and I got together to piece our Christmas table topper's using Rachel of p.s. i quilt's design (Moda Bakeshop tutorial) and kits made up using Moda's Glace. We bought the kits from the Quilt Shoppe and they were packaged so nice. You can view the package as I received it here.

Here are a couple of sneak peeks at my quilt top, yet to be quilted.

Isn't Glace deliciously festive?

And... just because of the cuteness factor here are some photos of our precious Schnauzer's.

We couldn't resist taking a picture of Kia with her sweater on which she hates, but which was necessary because she was shivering and a picture of Jasper looking extremely bored.
