I skipped a week of blogging because I've been so busy, but I haven't stopped quilting. Today I'll catch up on showing you client quilts I have finished in the last couple of weeks. Enjoy the show!
This adorable baby quilt belongs to Mary Jo. It is for her first grandson. The pattern is called Action Jackson by Sandy Fitzpatrick. It's really sweet with some 3 dimensional pinwheels and peek-a-boo squares. I quilted a loopy meander all over with gray thread.
Next is adorable quilt #2. This is Becky's winter quilt with cups of hot cocoa, coffee, or tea. Becky hand stitched the steam coming from a few of the cups. The fabrics are so cute, too. I quilted with the Snazzy Snowflakes and a gray thread.
Marilyn asked me to quilt this nice big quilt. It has a large purple border, and the center she pieced with "strings" and selvedge edges from fabrics she used in different projects. I quilted with an overall stipple design. I love the fact that she can see those fabrics and remember what she made with them. Beautiful!
Sherri brought 2 baby quilts for me to work on. Who doesn't love Olaf? - and I loved that she didn't want snowflakes quilted on this one. I used the Whirligig edge-to-edge design, and it was just the right amount of whimsy for this little quilt.
Sherri's second quilt is a log cabin design made with a jelly roll, I believe, of the Moda fabric line Horizon. You can find out how to make these blocks at The Little Foot Quilt Shoppe. I love this fabric, and, in fact, I am currently piecing a top with it also. I quilted the Easy Orange Peel design over this one. It looks great, modern, and fresh!
There is even one more quilt that I didn't have a chance to photograph. I am so thankful to be busy quilting this summer! Thank you, ladies, for letting me quilt for you.
One last picture that I'll share (Facebook friends already saw this one) is my daughter, Lydia, showing off her Row By Row wall hanging. We LOVED this particular design from The Quilt Company. They conveniently had little kits made up for sale. Of course, Lydia had to change up the color placement. She learned how to do some ironing on this project, and I only helped to prepare and stitch the binding. It is now hanging on the wall above the desk of this young artist.
Happy Finish It Up Friday! I hope you've seen something to make you want to get quilting. You can find more inspiration over at Crazy Mom Quilts. Thanks for stopping by.
This is me...
I LOVE to quilt, and every day I must sew for my sanity!
