Are you up for a little Romance?

I'm editing this post in order to add it to a linky party, who doesn't love a party!
Val's Quilting Studio is asking quilters to dig into the archives for a weekly theme.  This week the theme is Awards and Animals.  Although my "Summer Romance" quilt hasn't won any official awards, I've been told it could.  Oh we all like to be recognized for our work, but for now I'm happy with just sharing it with y'all.  

~Lea Anne~

So glad this one is finally finished!  I'm in love with it!  This quilt was supposed to be for the Iron Quilter Challenge at the Missouri Star Quilt Company but you know how it goes..LIFE.  So I missed the deadline and it became a UFO for a few months.   The little birdie design if from Ivory Spring Blog.  You can find it here.  I changed the feather part up a little bit but it's still her birdie.   I love Wendy's work, and she shares so much of her talents with tons of tutes.

  6. Wendy from Ivory Spring said/told/ordered us to come over to look at your quilt. Well...I am gobsmacked with this art work. The whitework quilting at the back makes two quilts.
    I love the colour scheme, I love the bows, I am.....

    Congratulations - how many prizes will you win...thank you for the inspiration and sharing.
    ps wish I could "pin" it.

  20. I too am sent from Ivory Spring's blog. I'm blown away!!! How do you do (the process) the quilting pattern that looks like a cross between swirls and Mctavishing located between the feathers and the quilted frame surrounding the medallion. If you could email me a schematic diagram of how that pattern was produced I would be most appreciative. My e-mail address is quilt@bell.net. Thanks so much.
    Sincerely

  21. I'm also here via Ivory Spring. WOW!!! I just finished my first FMQ quilt (nothing like this masterpiece, I'm afraid) and I'm in awe that anyone can do machine quilting that is so precise, so spectacular! Did you mark some of the larger motifs and section lines ahead of time, or are you one of those quilty goddesses who can just "eyeball" everything and have it come out perfect? Such a beautiful, inspiration quilt -- thank you for sharing!
