What have I been quilting

The end of April I put a couple little quilts in a local quilt show.  I won a blue ribbon on the faux trapunto one.
The other small quilt I entered was a trapunto star.  I taught a trapunto class last fall.
Not everyone likes feathers so I designed a star and then with my janome sewed around
the star and embellished it a bit.  I put a grid on the sides of the star and free motioned and
used my janome's embroidery.  My 6500 just has some basic embroidery stitches.  It took
a long time to finish this little quilt.  I used colored pencil plus archival ink to draw on the
I am practicing with some different threads on my longarm.  I drew some crazy feathers
with chalk first.
I am not done yet.  I still have to fill in the sun with some fancy stitching.  I have to do the  background fills also.  I will show you later when I am done.   Hope you liked the photos!

Thank you

I had a nice Mother's Day.  My Kids are the best.  I always get a quilt store gift certificate from Little Pickle and my son gave me the largest basket of new guinea impatients.
I also was taken out for a delicious meal and went golfing.
I haven't been very good about blogging.  All the family was home for Easter and after 6 
tries I liked this photo of the family.
It is finally spring here.  I love the spring flowers.
I will blog more later!

She finished a triathlon!

Little Pickle finished her first triathlon.  We are proud of her.  Now she can rest. 
She doesn't even look tired.
Momma Pickle would never be able to do a triathlon.
