Finishes this week

A wall hanging made by Tess
 Tess' request was for a circular design in the blocks
 This wall hanging will go to a Mammography center.

I quilted a circle of hearts with echo stitching around them
and then repeated that design in the borders and corners.
Added a little ruler work in the HSTs
All quilted with two Glide threads in Pearl and Black
with two layers of batting ~ Wool to give it loft
with an under layer of cotton to help it hang nice. 

Thank you Tess
Tess also dropped of a wool applique quilt that I am anxious to play on.

Meanwhile got caught up on a few more...
This quilt is made by a new to me customer, Sally V
Love the fabrics!

Quilted with Williamsburg e2e
using an Omni thread from Superior Threads
on Quilter's Dream cotton Select.
Love the paisley backing fabric too!
Thank you Sally :0)

One for Claudia

 Quilted with Escargot e2e

The backing fabric is the dark blue background with yellow flowers. I used two layers of batting for this quilt as well. A wool with a cotton layer. The reason for this quilt is because thru wool dark backing would shadow the light fabrics on the top. The cotton helps keep the top nice and bright white. Claudia also added some of the strips to her backing.

 Love the loft of the wool, you can see it in these pix taken early in the morning
 with a bit of sun as it rises.

Thank you Claudia!
Perfect piecing and good fabrics as always :0)
You are very much appreciated

 Christmas in July for Barbara H
Love her pieced backing altho it was a challenge 
to center the top with the backing
both horizontally as well as vertical.

Close up of the back 
with my Points and Berries e2e
Its a wonderful red! 

 This baby quilt was quilted yesterday for my good friend Janie
She is so creative and loves to challenge both of us!

Top fabric is a knit, that when washed, created the crosshatch pattern
The batting is wool and the back is Minkee!
Kind of like trying to quilt three sponges together! 

Janie raw edge appliqued all of the fabric squares onto the white knit fabric
using a decorative feather stitch on her machine.
That was a challenge in and of itself :0)
Really cute fabrics with Fox, Owls, a squirrel and a hedge hog
Stitching is added to the animal block prints
with Omni and Glide threads
and an extra square of wool batting
 behind the blocks
 and this is Little Tweet on the Minkee backing...

Thank you Janie! 
Took a break this morning to post pix, now off I go to add the binding! 
See you soon! 

Enjoy your weekend
Tot Ziens, Jo

  1. Wow! These are all so inspiring. It makes me want to run home and start quilting.

  2. I did go home and start quilting. I didn't get very far but I started. I also wanted to tell you I love the owl you quilted into the quilt.
