Previous Quilts…

Because I am still working on an applique quilt, I will play catch up

and show you some completed quilts from before Christmas.

Lynn’s Quilt

I am guessing that Lynn created this quilt.

The border area

I used a light blue polyester thread for the all over design. The panto is called

“Fresco.”

One of the blocks in the quilt.  I love the blue in this block.

The backing of the quilt. Pieced backings are a great way to use

up left over blocks. Nothing gets wasted when it comes to quilting

and fabrics.

A blue quilt

Another quilt that was completed before Christmas.  The “Friendship Star”

is a great traditional quilt block to make.

The variety of colors adds interest to this quilt top as well. I used a

blue polyester thread for the top and the backing. “Popcorn” is the

name of the overall design used on the quilt top.

The backing

The backing is pieced as well; the batiks are a great fabric to use as well.

The backing shows off the quilting beautifully.

Anne also created this beauty;  I really love the batiks in this

quilt top.

There are even snowflakes printed on the fabrics.

A tablerunner

Anne also used up some of her floral print fabric for this table runner.

It is quite charming and would make a lovely gift for someone. I think that

is what Anne was planning on doing with it.I used a clear monofilament

thread to stitch around all the flowers. Why use an all over  design when

Anne has gone through so much effort to piece this together?

The backing

The backing is great as well. I love the Poinsetta fabric. Totally Christmas

all way round.

I hope you have a great week. Linking up with

Needle and Thread Network.
