Some Show-and-Tell

Here's a little video clip for your viewing enjoyment of Daughter #2 and her fiance. They included the 'extended' version of this with all the invites. I think they are a darling couple. Just click on it an enjoy. (let me know if it doesn't work.) It's called Skankey-Love. Yes, my daughter is going from the surname Love to Skankey. I think I will send in the newspaper announcement to Jay Leno. He'd get a kick out of it, I think.

Also here are some quilts with an 'Asian' flare. The first is for a lady who's son loves Sushi. I love all the cute fabrics she used in this quilt. Anyway, I don't use pantograph patterns anymore with my longarm ...just freemotion designs, or stuff out of my head. But on this quilt, I altered a pattern called Sydney by an artist named Kimbery Darwin. I followed her pattern but made it more angular. I don't know if that makes sense. Maybe you can understand by checking out the pictures.

The second one is another quilt with a beautiful collection of 'Asian' fabrics. I just love this one. A gorgeous collection of fabrics. The quilting I did was all freehand. I tell ya, every morning I get up and look forward to my work. (back in the days when I did accounting...I never felt like that.) Thanks for allowing me to show and tell!

Beautiful quilting again Vivian! And I enjoyed seeing the video -- what a cute couple. Funny you mentioned Jay Leno -- in an earlier post I thought the same thing -- you should definitely send it in!

I guess the "Skanky-Love" invitation would be agood one for Leno or Letterman. See ya Vivian.
