4 for Carol!

Carol is the queen of "Gwennie" style free form piecing! 

Quilted with Humming Birds 
using a blue variegated SoFine 40 thread by, of course, Superior  

All four of these quilts are made from scraps from Carol's mother. There are orphan blocks and cut off pieces from quilts Carol's mom made through out her life. Carol combines them with her mom's stash plus fabric from her own collection, many from Hawaii :0) She has been working on this for some time and I've had the pleasure of quilting several. If you click on Carol F from the Search by Customer box on my sidebar, all of the blog posts with quilts Carol made will come up :0) Her goal is to give each of these quilts to family members, very cool!!!

Each one is quilted with different threads, this one with a coral Omni 
quilted with Quilter's Dream Pink batting

 Love all the borders Carol added to this one!
and her backings are often pieced as well! 
This one has some of those Hawaiian fabrics.

A third... love how Carol changes up each of these quilts 
with all sorts of borer treatments and free form layouts!

This one backed with the same blue fabric as the first

And one more for four...
with similar fabrics as the first one with all pinwheel orphan blocks

btw all are quilted with the same Humming Bird design 
at Carols request because hummers were her mom's favorite bird :0)

Thank you Carol, you are awesome!!! 

Up early today, finished a quilt for Linda D, pix another day :0)
Stopped for breakfast and a blog break and now it's back to quilting 
before it gets too hot... again... 
we are going back into triple digits this week and next :0( 
That's Chico summers and THIS is the last summer I am quilting full time! 
Tot ziens, Jo
