Quilting these tops is a great way to try out different designs and techniques while creating something that will bless someone else. Here is the quilt I finished for QBB yesterday.

I quilted the bottom rows to look like grass, the next two flowers, the next two like meandering butterfly trails, and the too rows like wind. I hope the child that receives this will love it.

Sadly, I am at a standstill after the current quilt is finished because if this:

Yikes! I am out of batting! I ordered two rolls last week. I sure hope they get here today!

In the mean time, I just may have to start something new…

  1. Your quilting is amazing! And the cause – sew worthy! Hope your new batting arrives soon. But starting something new is always sew fun!

    Wow! The gradation of shading reinforced by the quilting creates a great sense of distance out of simple stripes. Love it! Also like the flower and butterfly figures added to it for focus.

    uh oh – is that a longarmers night mare or what.  I start to panic when on roll gets low, but two empty, sends shivers up my spine.  How the batting gets there soon!   Sue Daurio http://suedaurio.blogspot.com/
