I really have been working/quilting!

Really, I have! And here is the proof, in reverse order. This one I finished today. I quilted this one for my Mother. She made it for my sister Ann. Mary quilts most of Mother's quilts. She must be busy right now, so that's why I got this one to do. I used Fairfield machine blend batting ( they sent me a sample of this last year. It really is a nice cotton/poly blend) and Superior "so fine" thread.
In this photo, it looks like the 2 inner side borders aren't quilted...they's just the light.
And this is a customer quilt...beautiful, bright batiks. Quilters Dream "Puff" batting and Superior" so fine" threads.

And closer...

And the back.

And this is another local guilds' raffle quilt. I used my circle lord to make the circles, and then embellished them.

Again, Quilters Dream "Puff" batting and superior "bottom Line" and bottom.
They wanted no background quilting, and those of you who know me, know that was a hard thing for me. But, I muddled through.

Word is that they were pleased. Lets hope it make them a lot of money.

My choice of course, would have been to do a tiny background fill to really bring those circles and butterflies forward. But, that as they say, was not in the cards. Oh well.

Still effective, I think.

They like it and that's all that matters.

So, you see I have been busy....not just loafing about!

Have a great night!


  1. I still don't see my quilt on that list of those finished!

    I do have one to quilt for Ann that Mom pieced too and no I'm not too busy to have done this one but I told Mom that I thought your quilting would suit the quilt a lot better than mine. It's beautiful - Ann's going to love it.
