Quilts Beyond Borders

Today I’m working on this beautiful pink quilt top sent to me from “Quilts Beyond Borders”. 
When I received this top for Longarming, I immediately saw butterflies and flowers flowing over the top of the quilt. Quilting this top has been a joy and will share more photos of the finished quilt soon.
More information about the organization “Quilts Beyond Borders” can be found here: Quilts Beyond Borders. 



I’m off to quilt more butterflies! :-) ~ Tracy

Behind the Scenes...

A few weeks ago, I traveled to Northern Vermont to save a log from the firewood lot.  I purchased a Cherry log that was ~ 6-7 feet long and ~14" diameter.

After a couple of weekends worth of work, I rough turned 18 bowls from that log.  All are sealed with Anchorseal green wood sealer and will be stored for 6-12 months for drying - the Anchorseal seals the green wood and slows the drying process to eliminate cracking.

These will be inventory for next year. ~Brian
