Quilted but not bound...


but they look much better this way. The binding will only improve them, too. Frame them out so to speak. So many steps to quilting. As my Dad says, "No such thing as a little job."
I'm loving the green one. Used up some batting scraps with these smaller projects. I need to get some bigger batts at the local quilt shop this weekend- she is having an early bird special and I plan on being there when the doors open. I am completely out of batting and how can one quilt without it? Does make for interesting times when you are splicing little bits together- trying to make sure you are using all the same loft... I could just say that I meant for there to be mountains and valleys in the quilt. Yeah, I'd buy that.

well, the green is very pretty and the quilting makes a huge difference, doesn't it. I'm a bag lady today.

You could make a sampler quilt if you keep making hexagon blocks like these.

Three posts in the last couple of days? Wow - I am impressed! I love the green one too. I piece my left over batting together too - usually for baby quilts. I heard this morning that WE might get snow tomorrow night! The kids are really excited! Love you!

Your Dad is very wise...so true.

lol Had to laugh at your hills and valleys! Too funny. And I can so relate.
