Teacher Gail's quilt, Julie's quilt, and more

Well, I finally have something more to share.  This having a real job is really cutting into my quilting time!  Anyway, about a year ago, I donated a coupon for a quilt for the auction at Bella's pre-school.  On the day it was to expire, the person who purchased it got in touch and we finally got together to talk about what she might want.  After looking at my blog, she decided on something bright and 15 Min play style.  We met at a local fabric store, and she selected some of my favorite colors in batiks.  I told her it would be a while, but I didn't realize just how much time it was going to take.  I have managed to make the first five of the 20 blocks I want for the top.  I promised to post the progress, so Julie, here is what I have so far.  I hope you like it. 
It being the end of another school year, and Bella's last year in pre-school, I wanted to make a quilt for her teacher, Gail.  Gail is one of the best pre-school teachers I have met.  She teaches the little ones and at the same time, the high school students who are learning about teaching little ones.  Bella has had a great year.  She did a little sleuthing and learned that Gail loves green, so I had fun gathering green fabrics.  Have you tried the virtual quilt wall at The Old Country Store?  I love this store.  Fabric is beautiful, and most reasonably priced.  Shipping is fast and also very reasonable.  And now, they have a place where you can put all the fabrics you want to see together before you add them to your shopping cart.  Can't beat it.
Gail was very surprised by her quilt, and Bella was proud to be able to give it to her.  I love it when people like the quilts I make.  Bella did a great job choosing the color.
In a completely different direction is this months Improvirobin piece that came my way.  I absolutely love it!  So far, this is the work of five very talented people.  I hope my addition, whatever it will be, will add to the wonderfulness of this piece.  I may have to try and recreate something similar so I can have it on my wall.
I leave you with this inspiration.  I just know it is a quilt waiting to be born. This is the first year since we moved in that the clematis bloomed fully.  It is a real beauty.  Many of our neighbors have very full vines, so I am very happy to see ours has come back to life.
I have a little bit of work to do tomorrow, but I hope to have time in the studio again.  Oh!  I almost forgot to tell you about the new quilt shop I found today.  Gossypium opened in Issaquah four months ago, but I just heard about it today.  It is fabulous!  I know I will be spending more time there, and probably more money.  I am so happy to have a new quilt store in the area that carries fabrics that I like.  If you live in the area, and haven't stopped by yet, it is in Gilman Village on the back side of the building with the clock tower.  Enjoy!
Have a great weekend everyone.  Joyful quilting.

We don't see in a while and then you pop our eyes! Great start to a very colourful and pretty quilt and how delightful a quilt for a teacher. Flowers always inspire.

That green and white quilt is so pretty! Very nice fabrics for that pattern. And the IR piece is looking awesome... eager to see how it progresses.

Very pretty teacher gift. I am sure Belle had fun picking the fabrics and giving the quilt. What a great gift.

I'm often amused as to what you consider not very much quilting! I hope Bella's teacher appreciates your work as much as we do. How interesting the clematis quilt might be. It's nice to see you back occasionally, Miki, how annoying of work to take up your quilting time.

best, nadia
