Finally Finished

I was going to wait until I got a picture of the baby girl twins on their quilts but I will post it when I get it. I have been busy working Shop Hop. Great fun. I have never talked so much in two days, ever! Thanks again to Zany Quilter for quilting these. Check out the close up photos here.

Nicole"s Quilt Nov. 2012
Snapped these photos just as the wind was picking up. Mom wanted orange and yellow for the babies and the Timeless Treasures Pink Lemonade strips were perfect. For someone who has pattern issues this came together without a hitch. For me, that's saying something!

I love the backs and binding. 

On my list right now are two more baby quilts, my daughters wedding quilt which we will be working on together. I am really looking forward to that. Wait till you see the pattern. My sisters quilt she designed, MQG challenge quilt and the Christmas exchange for MQG. The toaster quilt that is half finished, The Kaffe fabric one that is half finished and a class that I am taking on Friday, the fabric has to be cut and ready. These are the only the ones I can remember! Oh and my handwork hexies in 1" and 3/8".

Hawaii Twins and Sister

These quilts put a smile on my face and the fact they are done is due to a good friend quilting them. They would still be in a pile waiting to be quilted if I was responsible for getting them quilted. Thanks Zany Quilter. Check out the close up quilting there. She did a wonderful job. Thank you Zany Quilter

I didn't follow a pattern, I just stacked, cut and shuffled to do the blocks. It is all freehand cutting. Give it a try, it's fun.

The boys quilts are the same except the backs. One is blue with trucks and one is gray with trucks. The binding matches the backs. The backs being different is so they will know which one belongs to them.

Sisters quilt I did quilt and I am very pleased with my work. It was fun but I still think that is an art in it's self. 

Twins Sister quilt Nov. 2012

That border is called piano keys and I love doing them. I"m usually not a border person but I like this one. I also made her a pillowcase that has colorful fishes on it because I heard she loves the ocean. Now to get it all in the mail. It will arrive before the boys turn one so I have met my goal that I have a year after they are born to get the little ones their quilts. Their cousin in Virginia is on the list.

Until next time...have fun, whatever you do!

Modern Quilt Guild Challenge

Our last challenge for this year for the Modern Quilt Guild is to use all Bonnie and Camille fabrics and has to be bigger than 20" X 20'. It has to be quilted and bound. It is due the 29th of this month. Here is where I am with this project.

MQG B&C Challenge Nov. 2012

Tomorrow is my 12 hour sewing gig so I should make great headway on this piece. I think I know where I'm going with this pile so I just need to do it.

I am washing all the baby quilts as I type this and I am so excited to post and distribute these cuties. I have to admit there are two that I haven't even started. Bobby and Riley aren't very old yet so I still have some time.

See you again on Wednesday. Until then...happy quilting.
