Out Of Retirement

Some of you may remember (well actually probably on Jody and Jan) my joy at being able to retire the Chantilly Lace pattern for quilting..After a gajillion quilts I did for my quilting couple in AK and the fact that they ONLY would let me do Chantilly Lace I was so happy to retire it when we moved!

I even took it out of my sample book...Lol..Well evidently absence does in fact make the heart grow fonder...I broke it out today. I have a baby quilt to do for a shop sample and they refused to tell me what they wanted on it.Just something cutesy they say....Pfffft was what I was thinking. But I knew this one would fit the bill. What was even nicer was that it was exactly like riding a bike. Ahhhh something to be said for comfort and the fact that I could do this in my sleep.

I have been a very good girl this week :)...Quite a change from my telling you I am not getting anything quilty done...I also completed 4 burp rags and a baby quilt that actually has to be at a baby shower in Texas next week....Yes it will be going priority! Nothing like a little procrastination and now I am paying the price!
But isnt it cute!

Sweet ! And I, too, love Chantilly Lace. Perhaps because I didn't have much call to use it when I was quilting for others.

Very cute indeed!! So how long does it take to quilt a blanket on your longarm machine? I quilt by hand...takes forever.
