Paige's Custom Quilt Pictures

Paige's Custom Quilt

I completed my 2nd customer quilt last month for my friend, Paige. She made a queen size quilt for her friend, Phil. It had alot of pictures on it of friends that they both knew and names of the friends. This was a custom quilt due to stop annd starts plus using different patterns on it. It took about 2 weeks to do it and I used several motiffs in it. I love the design Playful which I used alot on the quilt. I will post some pictures of the quilt. It great to have my photography stand to take a picture of it. Paige did her own binding and will give it to her next week.

Maui Vacation

Last month, we went to Maui, Hawaii from Febr 11-20. We have been to Maui many times and it became our favorite island in Hawaii. We stayed at Kaanapali Beach Hotel which is right on the beach beside the Sheraton/Black Rock. It was nice to enjoy paradise for 9 nights. I will post a few pictures of our trip. I posted more about the trip on my other blog. I worked on Paige's quilt before I left for Maui. She is my 2nd customer who had a queen size quilt made for her friend, Phil. It had alot of pictures on it which made it more of a custom quilt. More on my next posting about it. Maui Pictures
