Just a binding and it will be done! A great quilt for the upcoming holidays!
A close up of the quilting pattern. Large sweeping lines leave soft spaces between the quilting.
A wonderful choice of fabrics!
Marie has finished a quilt for her sister's birthday and I just received it today and quilted it. She chose the "Florence" quilt pattern which really looks nice on the quilt and Egyptian Topaz thread, a bright gold. Your sister will love it!
My aunt Sharon inherited this wonderful lap quilt from her neighbor. It was mostly hand pieced with one inch pieces of old vintage scraps of fabric of all colors and patterns. A wonderful keepsake from a dear neighbor!
I quilted this with a near white thread and used the "Sticky Buns" quilt pattern. An addition of red and blue borders finished the quilt.
Here is the finished postage stamp quilt that Sharon had acquired from her neighbor's family.
Winter's coming, time to get those flannel quilts done! This has the "Garden" pattern of quilting on it and Fox colored thread.
There's nothing like a warm flannel quilt!

Marie has again made another paddlewheel quilt, using up that fabric stash but they are so nicely put together! She chose the Chiveblossom thread and the pattern was Grains of Wheat. The pattern is a very neat all over pattern and looks great on any quilt.
This must be the year of making fish quilts for kids, because I have quilted 3 of them this week! But they all are going to be loved by the grandchildren that get them! Here is Suan's rendition using fish prints.
The light pink minkee backing, so very soft and cuddlesome!
Susan picked the simple meander for her granddaughter's quilt. I used a fushia thread. Using the minkee backing has created a heavy warm quilt that is wonderful!
This was quilted with Lilac colored thread and a quilting pattern called Pretty Posies!

She was working on this quilt at the retreat and it is now done! So beautiful! There's just something about batiks and purples that can't go wrong and the sashing that she used is so neat! You really should see this quilt in person to get the full appreciation of it!
