The Quilt Rush is On.

I don’t know about you but this is one time of the year that I do not like.  It is

almost time for school to end and the kids are out for the summer.  Gone is

the peace and quiet, for a little while anyways.  Don’t get me wrong-I love

my kids but I do enjoy being home and quilting without any added distractions

or noise.  So, the quilt rush is on, to complete as many tops as I can before the

end of the school year.

Last week, Jeanette brought me a HUGE quilt that needed to be done quickly.

Her daughter wanted a grey quilt for her bed and she needed it before the plane

took off.  It was finished on time and we chose “Happy Times” as the panto and

a white thread to top it off.

Here is a close up of the quilting and of the top.  Jeanette did a great job!

Judi, from Farm Lane Studio also wanted a smaller quilt done.  It is a panel quilt

made up of dogs.

She decided that an all over of bones would be appropriate and I

agree.  What do you think?

Even the border received special bones all over it.

Bernice also had a special quilt that needed to be done for an

upcoming anniversary.  Her son is celebrating his first wedding

anniversary and what better way to celebrate than with a quilt.

“Quirky” was the panto that we chose.  It was a new one that I had just

purchased so it arrived just in time.

Bernice always manages to make the back of the quilt just as interesting as

the front.  This quilt was no exception.  I love the horizontal lines in the middle

of the back.  Gives the back a whole new look.

The quilting even is more visible on the back.  If her son gets tired of the front,

he can always flip the top over and have an entirely new quilt on the back.

I too will be making a quilt for an upcoming special event.  One of my nieces is

getting married next year and guess what I will be making her?  Yes, a quilt.

I really don’t think that she likes traditional quilts so I thought that a modern one

might do the trick.  I was Orilla on the weekend and stopped into

Thimbles and Things-a local quilt shop.  On the wall, hung a gorgeous modern

quilt.  I am hoping that my niece likes it.  The flowers will be omitted but I really love

the rest of the  pattern.

What about you?

Well, that is about it for this week. Have a great week and keep

stitching.

      HI Susan, Thanks for checking out my blog. I think that I may change the colors in the modern quilt, depending on what my niece’s favorite colors are. I am hoping that she will like it, if not , I may keep the quilt for myself-ha!
