Quilting Up a Storm

This weekend I pulled the quilt frame out and worked on several quilts for a friend. I quilted this flannel baby quilt with a sage green King Tut and Bottomline. It turned out so nice and cozy.

I also quilted up this pink/green baby quilt she had made several years ago and wanted to get finished.

I spent the most time on this small table runner. It gave me lots of headaches because each of the leaves is loose, think prairie points and I had to really watch so they wouldn't snag. Plus there there extra layers there and I had a lot of problems with skipped stitches. I slowed down, changed needles, used sewers aid, but it was only in the thick spots it skipped, so I am sure that had something to do with it. I

Here's a close up of the quilting, yet it is hard to see. I used a yellow, orange, blue, green King Tut with a blue Bottomline.

I've also been working on putting together this quilt top since quilt retreat. It's really a fun quilt to sew because the seams match up so perfectly! I couldn't believe how easy it was to get them to match. It's using up scraps from a sample I made at the beginning of the year. I'll hopefully get it quilted this weekend as I plan to teach this class in the next quarter.

This is the last remaining pieces of the border print I used for the Farmyard Friends quilt. I made a little table topper that I quilted up last night. Now I just need to put binding on. I've got a lot of projects that just need binding finished, so that may need to be my March goal.

Last night I also quilted up this little table runner made with the leftover pieces from Briar Rose. I made a whole bunch of pieces wrong, so instead of throwing them away, I just made them into a table runner. This is squared up and the binding is cut, so I just need to put it on now.

It's been another very productive week and I feel great. I also am working on my ahhhh's 2 & 3 which are English Paper Pieced. I got them all prepped and basted at lunch today and now it's time to sew them together.
Find time to enjoy your passion and everything else will fall into place.
