Here is a very old finish! I’m not sure exactly how old, but it was three houses ago so sometime before 1997!

I loved these fabrics and wish I had more of them! I quilted this with a walking foot and the whole thing is a bit oddly shaped.

The squares finish at one inch. Nice puckers in the back, huh? Haha! Some people say I shouldn’t point out my mistakes. But I’m all about being real. I think it gives others permission to do the same. And things don’t have to be perfect to be beautiful anyway.

Have a great day!

QOV #19

This lovely QOV was made by Lynda.

I used this panto from Urban Elementz .

I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to get this smooth enough, but I’m pleased with how it turned out. Here’s a look at the back.

Have a great day!

It’s QOV week again! I’ve missed quilting these. This one was pieced by Nadine. This pattern is called Stars and Stripes. You can see the tutorial by Missouri Star on Youtube here.

I was really glad to see this in person as it is on my bucket list!

Isn’t this backing fun?

Off to load another. Have a great day!

Red and White

This is another beautiful quilt pieced by my friend, Donna.

I learn something with every quilt and this one was no exception. The backing is batik and I hadn’t done a quilt like that in a while. I had to do a bit of ripping in the beginning, but once I figured things out, it was smooth sailing!

I needed to use a size 18 needle and loosen the quilt on the frame a lot. Then it was easy peasy. This is the panto I used. It is from Urban Elementz . I loved every the texture it gives!

Have a great day!

Finish It Up Friday ~ The Wedding Quilt

Beware of picture over load! This quilt is done and gifted so now I can share.

And to quote our friends from across the pond, I’m chuffed to bits with it!

I was able to gift it to the happy couple after the rehearsal dinner.

And here they are after the wedding. My niece is so beautiful! I just love her.

Have a wonderful day!
