Marabella Sneak Peek #3

Good day, Friends. This week I was able to finish my Marabella quilt for The Quilter. I took some pictures before sending the quilt off to the editor. One final thing I did was to attach the ribbon bows onto the vases to add a little special something to the block:

This quilt is made with Henry Glass‘ Marabella fabrics. It will be featured in the July ’10 issue of The Quilter.

I did some “apple core” quilting after reading Diane Gaudynski’s post about it on her blog:

Some more quilting pictures here. I do all my quilting on my home machine, no long arm here:

I will show you the quilt in its entirety once the magazine hits the newsstand in May! Meanwhile, have a happy weekend! :) I will be busy working to meet yet another deadline…

Marabella Sneak Peek #1

Happy Monday, Everyone.  I hope you had a good weekend.  Ours was wet – but at least it was not freezing!  I had told you that Wawa is following the progress of my Marabella quilt with great interest:

I have been working under the watchful eyes of Wawa, and here is the quilt top partially put together:

These were happy blocks to put together, especially the applique blocks:

These fabrics are from Henry Glass‘ Marabella collection.  The quilt is scheduled for feature in The Quilter‘s July 2010 issue.  Come back later for more sneak peeks.

Meanwhile, I wish you a happy start to a new week.
