I know I haven't blogged in awhile, but the 4th quarter of the year is really busy in corporate sales, so I have been heads down... I have managed to find some time late at night to quilt. I need to get some XMas presents done... so much to do, so little time. But, I am making progress.

I have been working on a lap quilt for one of my nieces. I have two that requested a purple quilt to cuddle with. One is almost done, the other... well, let's just say.. I might have to give an IOU :-).

Here are some pics of the one that is almost done. As you can see, I am in the process of quilting the piece. Here are a few close ups of the front, showing the quilting. I am using purple Masterpiece by Superior in both top and bobbin.
I have been playing with different types of feathers. I'm playing with "molar" feathers that have loop-di-do's along the spine.
Here is a view of the back. As you can see, I am using my doodling method on this quilt. I just quilt one design until I am tired of it, then start something else. I know, I know... but as you can see from the front other than the sashing the blocks are kind of busy, so it is a good place to practice :-). The back is actually pieced in all the leftover fabrics from the front... although you can't really tell from the picture.

thanks for the comments... My niece loved it as well and wrapped right up in it Christmas day.

What purple challenge??? I am doing another for another niece now.. she isn't coming into town until the 6th, so I was spared the XMas deadline :-).
