Hexies and Stars

IMG_0349 IMG_0350 IMG_0351

Jill sent a few more quilts. She always makes beautiful quilts.

I always look forward to what comes in the boxes she sends.

This first one is hexies..she used mostly stonehenge fabrics…great colors and design.

I quilted continuous curves & swirls.

IMG_0352 IMG_0353

I just love the finish!

This second one is also a stunner. I used a bright raspberry colored thread in the background ….and it stands out!

IMG_0354IMG_0355-001

Curls, straight lines. loopies, continuous curves..and in the border I just followed the pattern in the design of the fabric.

IMG_0356Lighting hasn’t been to great here..getting photos has been a challenge.

Fire & Ice

I wasn’t sure what to call this piece. I have quilted a few variations of this. It’s a great pattern because it showcases fabric so well…and Deb did a great job with this…the fabric choice was very modern…the setting is modern. It’s going to be a wall hanging…so I used two layers of batting.

IMG_0338

 

I used my ruler to just do straight lines in the sashings…..Didn’t want to take away from anything…just wanted to frame in each “picture”

IN the center piece I did some pebbles and waves. created movement and texture.

IMG_0339

 

I gave each element it’s own design to bring some texture and interest for the wall. I love the finish. Clean simple and eye catching. IMG_0341 IMG_0342

Here’s the back:

IMG_0340Thanks! Deb. always a pleasure working with you!

Falling Leaves for Deb

Deb has been working on many fall themed projects…I can’t say I blame her…I love fall! I love everything about fall…the rich colors, the smells, the cooler crisp clean air…..cinnamon, apples, pumpkins….In fact my family is going to the Apple festival…there is apple dumpling..YUMMY! punkin donuts….music, corn maze…kettle corn. Yes…all of that working out I have been doing is just going to go down the drain in one day..I am pretty sure. But it will be worth it!

IMG_0365

This is one of those OBW quilts…I think that is the term right? I love them..they take a fabric and completely change everything about it. Always interesting to look at. This one is a beautiful fall themed pattern. I quilted all over leaves and framed it in with a leaf border. IMG_0366The back shows the quilting a bit.

IMG_0367

She also made a few table runners….Can we talk Turkey for a minute?

IMG_0347How cute is this guy? ADORBS!

IMG_0346 IMG_0345Then the Sunflower beauty:

Thanks so much! Always a pleasure working with you!

2 Block- Batik

IMG_0335

 

Elvida is a local quilter. She brought me this beauty. Batiks are always beautiful and I combined a few different designs for the blocks.

IMG_0330

 

In one of the blocks there are 4 small ferns that meet up.

In the next block there is a continuous curve flower that fills the space. I framed it in with a feather and the side setting triangles got wavy lines that follow the pattern of the strips.

 

IMG_0336 IMG_0337

 

The pictures don’t do this quilt justice. It’s so pretty I wish the quilting showed up a  bit better…but lighting hasn’t been my friend lately. :( such is life.

Here’s the back:

IMG_0334

I can’t wait for Elvida to come pick up her quit…we are going to trade some Iris bulbs. I love iris…but all of mine are one color…light purple. The last time Elvida was here they put on quite a show because they were in full bloom. She has all white ones..so it’s the time of year to plant them..so we are going to trade some..so we can have a variety. yay!

I hope you all have a wonderful day!
