Welcome to Farm Quilter

Enjoy your stay under the variable skies of Eastern Washington and watch the seasons change, from planting to harvest here on the farm...be sure to wrap up in a quilt during the winter, it's cold!!

Joan's Quilt finished

I just finished quilting this quilt for a customer.  It was fun!

I alternated the design I quilted in the red and blue of the log cabin blocks on every other row - fun and changed up the look a little bit.  Several of the designs were inspired by Angela Walters!  Sure do love her quilting!!  It goes out in the mail to my customer tomorrow, sure hope she likes it!

What I'm working on

I have been working on the quilting on this quilt for about a week now.  The pattern is Radiant Sun by Cara Gulati and can be found at http://www.doodlepress.com/store.php  This is the first curved piecing I have done and found the pattern to be forgiving!

I love the quilting Angela Walters does with her Modern Quilts and she blogs at http://www.quiltingismytherapy.com/  I own her first book, Free Motion Quilting with Angela Walters,  and her second one, In the Studio with Angela Walters, should be coming soon!  I am really looking forward to it!!!

Jacquelynne, who blogs at The Noble Wife http://thenoblewife.blogspot.com/2013/01/happy-2013-this-is-third-year-in-row.html posted the most beautiful poem about Choices by Max Lucado yesterday.  I think it is a perfect reminder of the choices I should make every day.  Please take a moment to go to her blog and check it out - you won't be sorry!  (She has a great blog too!!)

My First Quilting Goal for 2013

A Lovely Year of Finishes
I want to finish a wall hanging of a wolf for my daughter.  All I need to do is sew down the binding by hand and it is the part I hate the most!
