Turquoise Jewel

I finally finished up Lara's quilt - Turquoise Jewel. Lara chose the fabrics about 3-4 years ago for this queen size quilt, but didn't have a queen size bed!  She's moving in to her apartment this week and will now have that bed. Timing is everything.

This quilt was made from a Kaffe Fassett pattern, machine pieced and quilted on my HQ16. I've included a close up of the quilting, and also wanted to show the pretty back. It could be a reversible quilt!

The Garden House

Our wonderful Garden House has been built. Of course it still needs some painting and quite a bit of landscaping but all in good time. I'm storing garden tools in there now,and  it's so convenient. I'm looking for a great work table and some shelving and we'll be in business. It is very light and airy inside with the high center roof constructed of clear polycarbonate and the lower roofs are done with a "rusting" corrugate metal, huge windows and french doors.
