Looking back through pictures, I realized I only have to finishes two share from the last couple of months...finishes that are MINE, anyway. I've made three tshirt quilts in the last few months for clients, quilted many tops for clients and for my local guild's Honor Quilt program, and I also made lots of progress on my WIPs...so I guess I can't complain too much!
First up, is a quilt I made for my brother's 50th birthday in August. I rarely use batiks, and I'm not sure I've ever made a quilt with ONLY batiks. I LOVE how this quilt turned out. I used one of the disappearing hourglass block patterns found at Missouri Star Quilt Company. This is one I would definitely do again!
I finished the binding while we were on a trip to Atlanta. Our hotel had this nice fence for picture taking!
It's hard to see in this picture, but I used Omni's new variegated thread, which I love!!
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to give him the quilt in person, but here he is when he received it. I think he likes it!
Next up is my Spoolin' Around quilt. I think I've mentioned before that my friend Lisa and I swapped fabric for the spools for almost 2 years. Most of my spools were made as leaders and enders. When I got to the last 100 or so, I just had to finish them up!!
I quilted it with a pattern called "Chartreuse." It's a little too busy on the front to see such a detailed design, but it looks awesome on the back!
I love, love, love, the quilt...but I'll be honest and tell you I'm wondering if it's "too" busy on our bed. What do you think? I definitely think I need something other than WHITE pillows!
In my next post, I'll share how my summer block of the week went and a few other works in progress!!
