I am not sure where you live in the world but in Ontario, right now, it is hot. It sure
makes quilting less appealing, as I would love to be outside and basking in the
sun, just for a little while though.
Here are some finishes from the last month or so. Maybe next week,I will show
some pics of some recent tool purchases and fabric bundles.
Evelyn is becoming very talented in the area of creating baby quilt patterns from scratch.
This is one of her creations and it is so cute!!
Yes, my cows are upside down; I wanted to see how many of you caught that!
I love the black and white cow print. I used a light lime green polyester thread for the
top and a white for the backing. The overall design consisted of swirls. It adds some
movement to the quilt top.
Evelyn was on a roll when she made this second baby quilt using the same fabrics as the one
We used the same swirly pattern but switched out the thread for a grey color. Both were used
for the top and the backing.
Dale always has the most interesting quilts . She is also very fast putting them together.
I think that I may need to take some lessons from Dale in how she manages to do this.
What do you think Dale?
A close up of the blocks that were used in the quilt top. Because this quilt felt so modern to me,
Dale chose to have straight lines stitched across the top. I think it works great. I used a
monofilament thread to SID around all the blocks. A dark blue thread was used for the
straight line stitching.
Even the backing fabric matches the top of the quilt. Great way to use up all the fabrics
when creating a quilt.
Ruth E. made this “Trip Around The World” Quilt. It was huge!
I love Flying Geese and Ruth made the border out of these. It adds a nice touch to the quilt.
The central square. A small swirl was added in this block.
Swirls were added on each side of the Flying Geese. In the Geese
triangles, I did a quick swirl as well.
The backing of the quilt was a cool relaxing tan color. You can see the lines from the top.
I used a monofilament thread to go around the Flying Geese and the center blocks. A light
tan polyester thread was used on the rest of the quilt.
I think Laura made this lovely quilt. Stars and swirls were stitched all over the top. A l ight
purple polyester thread was used for the top and the backing.
Please consider if you want your stitching to be noticeable on the back of your quilt. If you don’t
want the stitching to be noticeable, then use the same color as on the top. If you want the
stitching to be more noticeable, then use fabric that is a different color from the quilt top.
I know, so many choices to make.
I can’t remember who made this quilt but it is quite eye catching.
A grey polyester thread was used for the top and the backing. Dragonflies and Hearts were
stitched all over it as well. I really love some of the graphic prints used in this quilt.

Have a great week and stay cool.
