The last couple of weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind around here. The kids started back to school, and I started a new job. This has all been really good, but we all have to get used to a new daily routine. I have still been quilting some client quilts. Here are the latest two.
This first one belongs to Terry. I did an edge to edge stipple in white thread. Terry did a beautiful job piecing this bright, happy quilt. She followed a pattern that was a block of the month kind of quilt in the McCall's Quilting magazine. Terry is a relatively new quilter, and she tried some new piecing techniques making this one - some she liked, and some she didn't like so much - but it's a wonderful way to learn. Great job, Terry!
This second quilt is Janet's. The color palette is the polar opposite of Terry's quilt, but it is also very beautiful in the soft muted colors and nature prints. She pieced this large star design with half square triangles using a layer cake. She also pieced the back which is just as lovely as the front, I think. I quilted it with a design called Raindrops and a light green/yellow thread that looks great with all the fabrics.
Thanks, ladies, for letting me quilt for you. It was fun!!
I'm linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday. Please visit again next week when I have even more things to share. Happy quilting!
This is me...
I LOVE to quilt, and every day I must sew for my sanity!
