No, I didn't drop off the face of the earth...

I've just been working like a fiend!  With our  guild's quilt show less than a month away I have been busy on all fronts.  I am working on the last client quilt to be done for the show now. Then I'll be able to get mine'll be down to the wire for mine!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Mother called me last night and reminded me I hadn't posted in a long time.  So, here are some pictures of the last two quilts I finished.  This is Sharon's "Burgoyne Surrounded"
She wanted feathers and and straight lines.  I love two color quilts!

And the back.

And this one belongs to Janice.  This is such a cute quilt. She hasn't gotten it back yet, but wanted to see the photos.  Hope you like it Janice!  

Those are 1/2" 60 degree diamonds in the block backgrounds.

The motif in each cup was taken from the fabric in that particular block.

The border is all one printed fabric. Sometimes these can be challenging to quilt.  I elected to split this one into 4 sections and quilt each section differently.  There is a row of brown diamonds on either side of the 'words'  I just stitched those in the ditch.  The 'word' section I did 1/2" 60 degree diamonds.  And from the swirls section to the edge I did beadboard.  Gives the effect of separate borders.

And I did swirls in the sashing and a loopy thing in the sashing posts.  A fun quilt to do!

The next few weeks are going to be crazy, so don't expect to hear much from me.  But once the show starts I'll have plenty of pictures for you.   After that, life settles down, Whew!

  1. You are always so good a matching the quilting to the quilt!

  2. Both quilts are great but the blue/white Burgoyne Surrounded is fantastic!!

  3. Though my tastes have changed a lot over the years, I've always liked Burgoyne Surrounded and have always liked two color quilts, esp. in blue & white. Very nice.

  4. Exquisite quilting, Deb! They're both great, but I sure do like that Burgoyne Surrounded quilt!

  5. Deb, you're an artist! I love my quilt. Can't wait to see it! Thanks for posting the pictures. Your work on the Burgoyne Surrounded quilt is lovely, so intricate and balanced between the swirls and the straight lines. The art of matching the quilting to the quilt is one that demands both a practiced eye and skilled hands, and you have both.
