Working away…

I have been working away this past week, both on my

own quilts and on some customers’ quilts.

Eleanor created this cute quilt;  there are alot of cute

cats on it.

Eleanor chose a simple floral design all over the quilt top.

She also chose a light pink polyester thread for the top

and the backing.

The cat border.

I really like the cat border print.

Dale created this beauty.  I have seen strip quilts

before and I really like how Dale created her own version

by adding a strip of white fabric with the diamonds.

“Autumn Oaks” are the name of the panto stitched on

the top of the quilt.

The backing was a beautiful golden color.

This quilt was created by Wendy; I think the fabrics

are from Northcott, Stonehenge, to be exact.

“Modern Curves” was the name of the panto design

used. It looks like a gentle way all over the top of the

quilt.

A light blue polyester thread was used for the top and

the backing.

The backing also has a label on it. Well, done,

Wendy, you already have the label on the quilt.

A baby quilt

This is a fun baby panel I bought for a new baby, but now

it is going to another new baby that is due soon.

I thought that the alphabet was cute and suitable

for a little boy.

I stitched around all the blocks and the letters. I left the

border unstitched because it wasn’t very wide at all.

The backing fabric.

The backing is blue and it has lots of fun things on

it, like teddy bears, ice cream cones, lolli pops etc.

A finished project

I also managed to quilt this wallhanging for

myself. It has been waiting for about a year and

a half so it felt good to get it done.

I have lots of embellishments to add to the top yet

so it isn’t completely finished.

It was alot of fun to work on this quilt. It did

take me 4 hours to complete; That kind of

surprised me because I thought it wouldn’t

take so long.

The background of the skies was the hardest

to stitch out. I  followed the designs that were

printed on the fabrics itself.

The backing

I found some umbrella fabric at a local

Quilt Show, in September. I didn’t have

enough for the whole backing so I added

a strip of white to make it big enough.

Can’t wait to see what I can complete this

week.

What are you working on this week and

hoping to complete?
