Spring is taking a long time in showing up but that has not
slowed me down at all; I am happily stitching along.
Kathy brought me this quilt and wanted an overall design.
We used a light green polyester thread on the top and a darker
green polyester thread for the backing.
I think she did a great job. If I remember correctly, it was
her first quilt.
The backing is a nice shade of green. And the quilting
does show up nicely on the backing.
“Flirtatous” is the name of the pantograph we used. It
has a whimsical feel to it.
This next quilt belongs to Lynn. She is a quick quilter and
has the most colorful fabrics around.
Isn’t this a cool pattern? I love the bright colors.
Is is so much fun to see how color, shape, and pattern
all work together. For instance, this is the same block but
the fabrics and colors have been reversed or placed in
a different position.
We used a light blue polyester thread for the top and
the backing. “Happy Times” was the panto of choice
because it resembles waves.
Don’t you just love the backing too? Pieced backings
are one of my most favorite things and it enables you
to use up more of the fabrics from the front.
I hope that you are happily stitching along. Doesn’t
your day just get better when you get some stitching
How do you manage to sneak in some stitching
during your day?
Have a sneaky stitching week.

Very nice work
Lovely quilts! Hard to believe that was her first quilt–it looks great!
The bright colours in the second quilt make the design stand out well. A little stitching or fabric trimming adds a greater sense of productivity to my days, even if it’s only for a few minutes. As does planting seeds in the garden 🙂
Yes, even 5 minutes of stitching time makes me feel better. Housework always seems to be never ending.
Does it get any better after all the kids leave?
I really like that second quilt. Hooray for color!
Nice work – the wonky one is super fun.
i do love pieced backings so much! they add that extra layer of interest. nice work on your finishes!
