You've been keeping me VERY busy!!

Here are just a few of the quilts I've done in the last couple of months.  Many have been edge to edge on busy quilt, and nothing shows up - which is by design!!  But here are few where the quilting was able to add to the 'story'.

First up is Becky's quilt.  She's actually a shirt-tail relative and I was THRILLED that she allowed me to work on this special quilt. 

This was an edge to edge for Suzanne.  Finding designs for guys is not easy!!  Her son, the recipient of  this quilt, was a basketball player.  What could be better than 'Bounce' by Anne Bright on this Turning Twenty!

Our local library holds a quilt raffle each year to raise money.  The Wheat Country Quilters pieced the quilt.  None of the fabrics, other than the background,  were repeated.  Amazing how such different fabrics can play so nicely together! Most of the designs are Anne Bright, the Friendship Star quilting was designed by Leslie Sevigney

Jane made this Irish Chain as part of a class at a local quilt shop.  It is the first of several I will be quilting.  While both of us were thrilled how this turned out, we were both extremely disappointed that the back was pieced.  I was quilting along, thinking "Man, this really looks gooood!! as the back would show on the roller as I advanced.  Then, the back piecing showed up...I had forgotten that she pieced the back.  This would have been a two sided quilt!  We've both learned a lesson from this!  The two outer border and block quilting designs were Anne Bright, the small inner border was a modification I made to fit that skinny border.  This digitizing stuff is FUN!!

Now that the camera is out of the shop, and we're getting some sunny weather, I hope to be able to post more pictures.  Happy Spring!!!
