|Bright and pretty string quilt|
|Panto: Trellis Vine|
|A jelly roll baby quilt for a soon-to-arrive Great-Granddaughter.|
The customer is a newbie and wants to turn the backing to the front instead of making binding. No trim, please...
|Hmmm...dark gray on the back. That's different.|
|Panels make these QOV shine|
|Panto: Simply stars|
Meanwhile, I got the sleeve and label on the raffle quilt and sent it home with my friend, Sue, who will be the quilt's keeper from now on. Bye bye, Misty Mountain Beauty!
|Kay made the beautiful label, complete with flowers from the quilt's border!|
I also put together my round robin challenge for my evening guild and got it quilted. I figure I can use it for my binding demo at the retreat, killing two birds with one stone, as they say.
|Getting things together for the retreat|
|Here, the blocks are sewn together, but no borders yet|
|The Pfaff is making the trip to Dillard. Big Bernie never leaves the studio!I hope I get better at the quilting to teach the other gals.|
|Borders on, quilting in progress|
|All done. It is a little wonky, so I will have to block it when I get home.|
I added the sleeve and label, so all I have to do is put the binding on.
|I put some buttons and beads on it to 'bling' it up.|
|One of the other quilters made this strip of 'Loosey Goosey' blocks.|
I opted to do the turn back curve technique on them, and add some flowers and beads.
|This is the block I made. I added the bees after quilting.|
|The quilting is fun swirls and flowery stuff.|
|I also put some prairie points in the border, and held them down with tiny buttons.|
|Blue birds on a wire on the back.|
|Kind of a loser team quilt, but I guess it has fond memories for the tee shirt guy|
|Panto: Simply stars...in blue thread!|
|I do love the wild backing!|
|This one had some fishing tees. I actually enjoyed quilting over 45's face.|
|Panto: Star swirl|
|Another kookie backing.|
Damn!! It's pouring rain again...sigh.
