Heather and Zack's Wedding Present - Burgoyne Surrounded in Scrappy

My friends, Heather and Zack went and got married in a quiet ceremony
this past April before moving to Michigan.
It took awhile to get around to finishing all my summer quilts up,
 but they all went into the mail or Fedex just before school
started again. In my haste, I even forgot to take some picture!
However, I did get 3 nice pictures of this quilt to share :)

The quilt ended up measuring 120 x120 with out any borders -
so the perfect size for a king size bed. The only thing that is consistent with this quilt is the center square - a burgundy fabric to represent Heather's heart and all the other squares are indicative of the love that she has for us all and the lives that she has touched through her teaching and just being the wonderful woman she is!

A new Babylock Jane has found a new home!

Let me introduce you to Jane!

Here she is my straight stitch and FMQ machine.
My dear husband, Carnell bought me this machine for our anniversary.  I had been tossing around the idea of a new machine, as I was wearing out my Sapphire 830. I was leaning towards a Juki 2010, but Carnell said why buy something off the internet when we already have a rapport with our local sewing machine shop.  Ian, over at Tanner's gave me an excellent deal on Jane and I have been happily sewing up a storm ever since she  came to live with us!  She isn't fussy about needles, thread and sews beautifully straight stitch.
