This lovely little quilt is for the new baby of Joy's nephew. Lucky little girl!
|Here's one that Jan made for her granddaughter. Gotta love all those pretty pinwheels, and I'd like to point out how well those points all match!|
|All of the white background is quilted with continuous curves, and then the sword is stitched in the ditch|
An update. Susan decided, and I agree with her, that it needed background fill, so I put her quilt back on and added a tight meander in the background areas.
|I so admire people who do applique to begin with, but then to do it by hand is even more impressive in my book. Yes, all those little wedges are sewn together, then hand appliqued to the background and the centers added as well.|
|I'm not sure if this quilt is "finished" or not. I can't decide if it needs a background fill in the spaces between the wreaths and the plates, so I've emailed Susan to ask her opinion. If she says yes it needs fills, then I'll update this photo.|
In addition to all the applique, the outside edge of the quilt is made up of pieced triangles. Wow. Well done.
Two sweet baby quilts that Veda dropped off for quilting. The elephant is made up in flannels, so very soft and cuddly.
I love his/her (?) expression. Both were quilted with the "African Pull Toys" panto, but I couldn't get a decent shot of the quilting to show. Trust me, it really works.

Story I got is that mom Carin and daughter Kathleen live in Arkansas, but the quilts will be going to an aunt in Oregon. I think that's how they picked me to quilt them. Kathleen isn't really sure who made them or when, but I believe this one is original 1930's fabrics, some of which were "repurposed." As in the background fabric has obvious lines old stitching lines where something had been taken apart, and then resewn into this lovely quilt top.
