Hit And Miss..

Unfortunately, my blog posts have been a hit and a miss lately. I am hoping to

remedy that by blogging more. In the meantime, here are some quilts that

I finished for customers in the winter.

I am unsure of who made this sampler but I do love the colors.

A light polyester thread was used on the front and on the backing as well.

The backing wasn’t made of cotton but flannel. You can see the texture so much

more with flannel.

Julie made this quilt for a special someone. It consists of a Robert Kauffman print and

pieced blocks.

Maple Leaves were quilted all over the quilt to make it truly Canadian.

The backing fabric.  Blue thread was used for the top and the backing.

Eugenia’s Quilt

This quilt was so cute. I love it. Eugenia made it for her grand daughter.

It has famous female heroines in all the blocks. And the colorful border was

made of strips of colorful fabrics.

I quilted straight lines around all the blocks so that they were emphasized.

In the background fabric, I quilted in loops, which  ties in with the theme of the

quilt.

The backing is great too, matches the quilt top.

Japanese Fabrics

These two quilts consists of Japanese fabrics and I quilted them in two different

ways.

A cross hatch was quilted on the top of the quilt and flowers on the bottom section.

There was also an orange Japanese quilt as well. I wanted to quilt something

different in this one so I quilted in floral motifs.

The backing shows off the quilting beautifully.

This is what the second quilt looks like.

Pat made this modern baby quilt for a new baby.

Don’t you just love the giraffes?

To keep with the modern style of this quilt, straight lines were quilted all over

it, using a white thread.

Minky was used on the backing and it shows off the textures so well.

It is extremely soft and oh so thick as well.

The whole backing. Love the texture.

Anne made this colorful quilt out of a printed panel. Borders were added and

voila, you have a quilt.

I used a lime green thread to quilt around the lily pads.

In the border, I used a pink thread and added a simple vine motif.

The backing is pink as well. The young lady receiving this quilt really loves

pink.

Julie made this second quilt as well. Again, a Robert Kauffman print was used and Flying

Geese were added too.

Oak leaves and acorns were stitched all over the border.

I love the bear and her cubs.

The backing shows off the quilting nicely.

I love the colors in this quilt. I can’t imagine the time it took to piece this

beauty.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures and have a good week. See you next week.
