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.

Japanese Quilt

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.

Going Back…

It’s a good thing that my husband is retired because March Break turned out to be

extremely busy. My daughter is in HIgh School and wanted to check out some

universities in the area. McMaster and Lauriantan University were on the agenda and

I tagged along for the trip to Sudbury.

Now life has settled down, I am back at work and trying to catch up on my

photos for this blog. These quilts were completed in the summer so I am going

back a few months. Nonetheless, everyone seems to enjoy a  good Quilt Show.

Eva’s Quilt

I have two  good friends who are very talented hand embroiderers, Eva being one of them.

This is one of two  hand embroidered quilts that she made.

The colors are very soothing and Eva even hand quilted it as well. Did I mention that

she is also very talented in this area as well?

The backing

I love pieced backings. They add so much more interest to the back  of the quilt and you

feel as if you are getting two  quilts for the price of one.

Eva’s 2nd Quilt

This is another hand embroidered quilt. Crabapple HIll is the designer and I really like

the patterns that they create.

Eva also created this beauty. Does she ever sleep?

This quilt is hand quilted as well.

You can see her  evenly spaced stitches on the back of the quilt.

The colors are really soothing in this quilt. Do you find that certain

colors draw you to a quilt and make you want to buy the pattern?

Swirls were stitched all over the quilt top. I love  helping

people finish their quilts so they can be used instead of

sitting in a box or drawer somewhere, waiting to be finished.

And yes, I have quilts  in a box, waiting to be finished too.

I love this light blue backing fabric. I am wanting to start a miniature

Wedding Ring Quilt and I couldn’t decide on the colors. I think that I

just found my colors.

This quilt is very graphic in nature but who can resist a black and white Quilt?

Swirls were stitched on the top and a black polyester thread was used for the top and

the backing.

 

The backing matches the top beautifully.

Wolves

Wolves anyone? I think that this may be a Robert Kauffman print. Anyone out there

know for sure?

This was fun as I was able to stitch around each of the wolves. Some guy is really

going to love this quilt.

The Backing

You can see all of the wolves on the back as well.

Have a good week. Spring is almost here.
