In between finishing at least one client quilt each day, I am working on way too many other things (besides 2 unfinished show quilts, a magazine article, and prepping for teaching in April). This is a piecing project I have started whose mess is beginning to consume my studio. I have some of the sections put together, and am currently working on the center, which has a little handwork. The brighter fabrics are Moda Weave, and I simply love this line of fabric. It is a great weight and has wonderful sheen for a cotton.here! I've got some work to do this winter to get my samples and notes all congealed!

Yesterday was a day of small quilts. These two were brought to me by the same local client. I did one of these fish quilts for her last year, only the larger version. This was a fun and quick 13" square! The only real challenge is that there are many threads needed, so I am constantly changing thread color, and it is raw edge appliqued. She brings them to me just ironed, without any stitching around the pieces, so they are very delicate at the edges. She will do the fish eyes - hence the expressionless swimmers.
