So Lucky.....

I'm very lucky to work in a job that I love to do.
 Machine quilting, quilt designing and teaching patchwork are my passion and I get to share it all with you....
I have been extremely busy lately quilting and designing and have neglected my blogging terribly. I check in with you all at your blogs everyday and I get loads of inspiration from all you've been up to.
 
Anyway, here's a little of what I've been doing...
 
I have a little somethin' somethin' in the latest Quilts from Precuts.... in stores now..hehe
There's my name on the front cover and apparently I'm an "Artisan".... lol
 
 
 
 
This is "Lucy" (in the sky with diamonds)
I just took this photo. You can see the smoke from the horrid bushfires that are raging around our area at the moment. Very scary and sad stuff :( That little pink dot in the sky is the sun !!
 

A paddock shot...
 
A while back I started a couple of quilts to get me out of my design slump. I used two patterns from Sew Kind of Wonderful and Jenny's awesome quick curve ruler.
 
This is Metro Medallion

This is Metro Hoops
 
I LOVE them both so much !!! I won't get to quilt them until January when I take the month off and get to quilt my quilts....

This little number below came back to me like a boomerang...I basted it for the owner for her to quilt it herself and, well you can see the size of it, she chose to bring it back for me to custom quilt it.
It took me 3 full days to quilt. Lots of stitch in the ditch...

 
And lots of pretty swirls and feathers....

 
 
Happy Quilting
Leanne xo

Terrible conditions, but Lucy looks magnificent. Beautiful colours. Looks like you have definitely found your enthusiasm.

It's great to see all the wonderful quilts you have been working on! I love the photo with the smoke in the background. I wish it was big grey rainclouds and not smoke but it makes for an effective photo.

Oh, gosh - I thought it was such a very cool photo with a storm in the background until I realized it was the smoke. :( Fun Metro quilts - I've got the Hoops lined up for piecing in January. Yours are both so pretty.
