Strip by strip…

Here is what I have been working on lately. Linda created

this quilt for her grand daughter. I think that she’ll love it!


This is such a quick quilt to piece together. It is created by

sewing strips to strips and then a border is added, if you

so desire it.  And it looks  like a million bucks.


What a great selection of prints in this quilt. Her grand daughter

will certainly love and have fun looking at all the prints in

this quilt.


“Flirtatious” is the name of the panto chosen. And a light

yellow polyester thread was used for the top and the backing.


The back of the quilt.

Orange is the color of the backing and what a great color it is.


You can really see the stitching on the backing.


Guild Charity Quilt

This is a Charity Quilt that one of the members, in my local

Quilt Guild made. Brenda is a very generous person with her

time and always pieces together quilts for the Guild, which

are then given to the local Hospital.


This is an adorable panel. I wanted to stitch something

out rather quickly so I chose “Swirls” by Norma Sharp.


The backing

I used a light purple thread on the top-So Fine. And a dark

purple polyester thread on the backing.


Hope you are enjoying the warmer weather. Don’t forget

the time change this weekend. Spring ahead and not back.

Busy as a beaver…

The Even though it is hot outside, I am still quilting away. Usually the summer time

is quiet for me but this year that is not the case.

Anne has also been busy.



This quilt is made from strips of fabric sewn together. The colours remind

me of fall.



Here is a close up of the strips. You can also see the panto that I used.

Anne is giving this to her son in law and he loves camping; thus the tent.



Isn’t the tent cool?  Makes me want to go camping. Too bad you can’t control

the weather when you do though.

The back of the quilt was  a solid green colour. We used a gold brown

polyester thread for the front and back of the quilt. Anne Bright designed

the tent and camping panto.

I am sure that her son in law will love the quilt.



This is the second quilt that belongs to Anne.  Another strip quilt

but in a different layout. It amazes me of how many different quilt

layouts can be made using the same idea, in this case, strips.



Again, we used the same gold brown polyester thread for the top and the

back of the quilt. This time, though, we used a panto with oak leaves all

over it. This was an autumn theme quilt for sure.



The back of the quilt shows off the quilting nicely. Anne is certainly going

to be busy making and adding the binding now too.

Hope you are having a great week.
