Donna and Beckie

Today I quilted a border and basted this quilt made by Donna
for one of the grand kids. Donna added embroidered musical clefs and notes
to the square blocks and the blue 'doors'.
All of the blue squares flip up to reveal musical instruments 
Donna fussy cut from the same music print fabric used for the backing. 
It's very cute! 
Borders are quilted with clef symbols and music notes in black thread. The middle field is basted and Donna will finish the quilting on her home machine. El cuto petuto!

Also finished today is binding added to Beckie's Chevron quilt for Ruthie. The quilt is made with home dec fabric as well as the binding. It made for four layers heavy fabric plus the batting. The stitching went well on my industrial straight stitch. Like butta! That's what it's for!
This pic is Beckie's quilt before trim and binding. No new pix, not much to see as the binding is only sewn on and will be stitched down by hand. Here is my post with more of the Chevron quilt as well as info on using Home Decorating fabric for quilts. 

Enjoy your weekend!
Stay cool, it's going to be another hot one
