Some quilting "dones"...


Here are a couple projects that I have finished recently. The top picture is just the back of a small wallhanging, showing my freehand feathers and the red and green... well, it speaks for itself. I love it! My Aunt Sheila gave me the top which was appliqued by her grandma. I have been meaning to get to it for a couple years, but you know how things can get crazy on ya. So I finally bought the backing and goterdone. It reminds me of a Hawaiian quilt, so that is how I quilted it- echos and such. It looks great on the bed. I am still needing to bind it- binding is cut, and I just bought some green thread, so soon, maybe.
I do have a couple quilts to do for family of family. Ordered thread for these projects as I am running low. I have been finding my empty cones all over the house with strips of fabric wrapped around them- imitating lighthouses. The kids and their imaginations never cease to make me smile. I must being doing something right as a teacher as I have been having to make them put the books away and go outside and play! I am working on a wedding quilt- I have three weddings this year. I'll be keeping it simple. Then I went and bought 42 yards of fabric... yes I think that deserves a post of its own. Maybe tomorrow. Stay tuned...

Lovely, Lovely. Your freehand quilting is great. Check out the Marylandmama site to see how that 'monster' quilt looks on the bed.

Look at you and all your fancy quilting! I am amazed and jealous! Can I come rub against you and borrow some of your talent? Please???

Finally working on Maddie's Paris quilt - hopefully in time for her birthday.

Miss you and love you!
