Vintage Quilt All Quilted

Duchess would like to say Happy Monday to all you sweet people.
Can you see the pink thread on her, she has been in my sewing room.  LOL!
Duchess was just groomed and she has already started picking out her hair out of her bow.

I just had to show you this sweet vintage apple core quilt I quilted for a customer.  The pattern I used to quilt her quilt was clam shell.  The pattern was fun to do and it did not take as long as I thought it would.  All in all I think it turned out pretty good.

Well, this is what I did this weekend.
  I cleaned a ton of reclaimed boards with bleach and a broom to scrub and let them dry in the 100 degree sun.  And I have a ton more to do.  This is the beginnings of my new shop in the attic.  In most places in Texas we do not have basements.  So what is a girl to do when she needs more room.  Move to the attic.  This project will probably take us some time.  We are also going to have to add an air conditioner.  In this part of Texas there is no way you can live with out an A/C.  Now I have to paint them.  I will show you more pictures as we get started.

Hope y'all have a great start to your week.
