Fluffy Flannely Quilts

It is that time of year again, where a LOT of my personal stuff takes a side line. It's all good, it's a part of life, and it only makes me LOVE my personal time oh SEW much more!!!

Between my real job ( Quilting for Clients)( Which I TOTALLY LOVE btw)  and my Life job ( Ranching/4H-ing) with the hubby and kids.... my personal quilting spot.... is sort of ..... well..... organized!....
Usually there are tons of piles on it ;-)



So!!  Back to the flannely Quilt!
This is a client quilt - made out of all 10 inch squares 
It was SOOOOo Soft!!



Here is a close up of the back - I did florally quilting, trying to pull out the florals from the top.


And this lovely scrap quilt is the Fluffy one!
We used a Quilters Dream Puff so it would be more fluffy!


That batting sure allows the texture to shine!!


Even though I don't have a personal finish this week - I thought it would be okay to share two Clients finishes ( and yes - I did get their permission )  It's nice to revel in the quilty goodness!


I'll be linking up to some other Friday Finishes - as soon as they all wake up lol ( early rising is getting the normal around here!)

Oh Confessions of a Fabric Addict  Is awake!!

RSC Red's

I am a little late in the game on the Reds.... BUT!! I am getting there!

I have dug out all the Red 30's prints and they are all trimmed up to 2 1/2 inches!!!  I am ready to sit and do some stitching..... Which will have to wait just a bit - but I am ready!

I did make the executive decision to not include the Christmas 30's prints.  So I will have to come up with something for those - but, well, they didn't mix well with these.


My dog and I took a walk and when we came back she was on high alert
"Look Momma, those big dogs got out.... More are coming Momma!
I'll protect you"

She loves me that way




 This guy was my riding buddy
I laughed because 
I haven't mastered the art of sitting on a moving animal
while shooting a moving animal

Row by Row part 2

I might have planned my trips and appointments around quilt shops..... and I Might have picked up a few more license plates.... and rows...

I had to go North to Ft Collins - and did you know there are 4 quilt shops in that town??  All of them are participating - but only 3 had their plates available....

The first I stopped at was the Fig Leaf.....and I might have found some really cool fabrics that I will show you in the fall.... when I can actually take a photo without a certain child around....


Then I went to the Loopy Ewe.
The Air in that store just makes you creative...... 


Then I went to The Sewing Circle
Which made us all laugh - because this summer....
I sort of feel like I am going in Circles....

There is a new store in Loveland
( okay - new to me - it used to be Sweethearts quilts)
It is called Quilters Dream



Then we headed to Windsor
To the Quilters Stash!
This store used to be in Greeley and was the VERY first Quilt shop I ever went to
So It brings back memories.

The first time I went in I had a picture and an Idea -
 Patty and her Mom were fantastic and they LOVED my boys. 
 They didn't mind them coming in with me at all 
( this is not always the attitude at shops, but my kids are perfect, ( giggle) 
but  I didn't know that wasn't always the case in all kids - lol)

My boys were much smaller the first time.

We walked in this time and I think Patty just about had a heart attack!
She said - are these my Little Boys?
And looked up at them, almost got a cramp in her neck.
The boys were tickled! 


Then last weekend - we had to head East to the Sale Barn and left a few minutes
early so I could stop at Inspirations Quilt Shop in 
Ft Morgan



I made the long trip to town ( not really, but I want you to sympathize)
And I opened the mail box and Look!!

Kevin The Quilter sent me a little something from the Quilt shop
he is close to!!!! I LOVE it!!


And My Dear Liz - 
She sent me one from Washington -
from her quilt shop!!!

So Througtful!!! I really was surprised!!

Stay tuned for more........
