What I’m working on

I don’t know the name of this quilt pattern, only that the fabric is by Paula Nadelstern.  This is a custom quilt job.  Difficult to see the quilting…. the fabric is busy.  Have to stay off certain areas where the client will be adding beads.  Trickier than the standard fare in our shop.

In progress…..



If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you MAY be able to see the gold thread.  It is Reingold thread, one of my favorites for adding a touch of glitz without having to fuss with metallic thread.  I can use Superior metallics just fine, but have to change to a larger needle.  So go ahead and say it…. I’m lazy.  And I like Reingold.

When finished, I will post photos of the whole quilt.  This one is for show, and I was nervous to start.  Then Steve said “all of her quilts are for show, so what’s the difference?”  He is so right….. and that brought me to my senses.  Once I got started,  everything went well.

    Oh, wow, I’ll be watching this one progress. I love that circles & petal work you have done so far. I love Rheingold also – it can be slippery but it is just the right amount of sparkle.

    WOW Gale! That is going to be beautiful. My I ask what the circles are that you are using?

    The circle templates are ones I bought 8 years ago from Carol Thelan. She no longer sells them. You should be able to find similar nested circles from





    That should burn up your credit card!

    This will be entered at the Canfield Fair this year, Labor Day weekend. Beading is done and it is hanging in my living room. Gayle did a wonderful job on it as always.
