I Am Back…

I am back. I have been away for a while but here I am once again.

Hopefully, everyone had a great Christmas Holiday. Mine was pretty

quiet, which was nice.

It’s been so long since I completed these quilts for customers that I can’t

remember all the details. If you are wanting information about the thread or

pattern I used, just ask me and I will go back and find out for you.

Green and pink quilt

This is a pretty cool pattern.

The backing

Pieced backs add so much interest to the backing.

Christmas was coming and here is a panel that was cut up and sashing added to

look like you are looking out of a window.

Overall picture

You can see how the pieced border adds more interest as well.

The backing fabric, a nice navy blue to match the front. I used a blue polyester

thread for the top and the backing and “Swirls” for the pattern.

 

Centennial Quilt

This quilt has so much fun blocks in it. Because it is Canadian, I had to stitch “Maple Leaves”

onto the quilt.

My neighbour always says that he is “as cool as a moose.” Well, this moose says just that. I really

love this block.

And what says Canadiana more than a pair of mittens?

 

The backing

The pieced backing is neat as well. So much information and I love the provincial emblems

used too.

 

Red Cardinal Quilt

This pattern is really lovely and the fabrics used are really nice.

The Birch trees and Cardinals are really stunning. A swirl pattern was used on the

quilt top. A light grey polyester thread was used for the front and the backing.

A grey fabric was used for the backing.

A child’s quilt

The bright colors in this quilt are so cheery, which is nice for this time of the year.

“Splat” was stitched all over the quilt top. It is a fun pattern to stitch out.

The backing

Using leftover fabrics  for a pieced backing is a great way to use up fabrics from a project.

Once again,  pieced backs adds more interest to the backing. Please remember to press the

seams flat,  as the seams add more bulk that has to be stitched over by the longarm sewing

head.

Have a great week and it is good to be back.
