Back to Work

It’s been almost 3 weeks since I was quilting and I am finding it too

easy to not work.  But I am back at work now and am trying to

catch up.  Last week, I showed you several blocks that I had completed.

Drum roll please.

Here is the top-almost done. There is a little more blanket stitching to

be done but maybe by next Christmas, it will be totally completed

and ready to hang.

Take a closer look at some of the blocks.

Santa is still missing his eyes so please bear with me.

I hope that you are not sick  of Christmas memorabilia by now.

This is another finished quilt but not by me.  Joyce brought me this

quilt and it was a delight to quilt.  No creases, ripples or wonky borders

at all.  Everything was nice and flat and square.

I used a polyester thread-gold color-on top and back.

Quirky was the name of the pantograph I used.

I love the flying geese in the border.

Joyce certainly loves a challenge.

Arlene also brought me a cute quilt.

Who doesn’t like bunnies?

How adorable are these bunnies?

In the interior squares, I did a panto titled”Waterworld.”

I know, what a wierd name.  I do love the swirl design though.

The border also was stitched in a swirl design but I echoed around

the swirl to jazz it up a bit.

I used a peach and light purple polyester thread for both

the top and the backing. Around the bunnies, I merely

echoed the shape of the bunnies.  Hopefully, it breaks up

the swirl design and helps the bunnies to stand out.

It is such a cute quilt.  Well done, Arlene.

And one last photo of winter for you.

Can you tell that I am loving my new camera?

My one year anniversary for this blog is coming up at the end of the month

and I am going to be making a draw for 2 patterns.  I will mention more in my

next post.

Have a great week!
