2nd Healing Garden Quilt

Finished the 2nd Healing Garden Quilt and got it listed on etsy. I totally enjoyed doing the quilting on it, in fact I enjoyed everything about making the quilt.
The fabrics are from Kaffe Fassett's collection (except the back). The quilting is very close and dense - should make for a soft quilt after washing.
I've also made up a few table runners. Some inspired by Japanese zen gardens (sand raking) with rows and rows of stitches at about 1/4" apart.
And playing with shot cotton - woven beauties - to created this long runner.
I've been able to get a lot of sewing done over the past couple weeks, but am going to launch back into an overtime vigil tomorrow with my job, so will have to cut back on the quilting fun.

Happy weekend all!

Dearest Cathy!

You you remember me? It' has been ages but I still remember you! I just did a blog post about some lavender hearts and took a look at my blog archive. It was back in November 2006 that you sent me a little parcel and tough me how to print on fabric! It actually changes my life! And I am still so greatful that you inspired me! Thanks you so much!

If you have time, you are more than welcome to come around my blog and have a look at what I am doing these days.

As I see, you are still busy, too. Your quilts are wonderful!

Warm wishes from Germany
Anita
