More long arm quilting, pin cushion and reading

I’m working on another customer’s quilt, she brought two that are very similar, very MODERN, totally un-like her quilting style….. they are gifts, so that’s why Winking smile

Here I had free reign to quilt it and thought of bubbles right away, sent her this picture and she wants more in the triangles, like the curves I often do, I can easily do it on the center triangles but maybe just something similar on the tips of the triangles, this way it’s easy to tie the blocks together too, so I’ll go back today and “fix” it.

Meanwhile, yesterday I got my pin cushion from the pin cushion swap I’m hosting, all the way from England! it took a long time to get here- stupid mail… not her fault.

It’s very nicely cross stitched and has a lovely fabric heart and the same fabric type on the back, which she wrote was some high end English fabric, it’s very smooth!

I LOVE this: “Enter your pin” hilarious!!

She also sent a small charm pack of these lovely fabrics!

I also got a BIG package in the mail, I had ordered pillow shapes from, I ordered 8 but only got 4 Sad smile I ordered 4 different sizes, 2 of each, and I really want the smallest one for a “secret” project. So I sent them an email.
