Catching Up!

I know it’s election day!  Maybe this will distract you for a few moments.  I have been working a lot, getting caught up with client quilts, and here are some pics of them!

First is Phoebe’s quilt.  Phoebe is the granddaughter of a friend of mine, and this is her first completed quilt project.  The instructions I received were to quilt it just like the magazine, and I sort of did.  I just added a few flourishes.  Really.

Halfsquare triangles, not too hard…but the hearts on the outside? Lots of bias edges, pretty hard to piece together

Just imagine it right side up…

These are the flourishes I was talking about

Corner detail, just a sweet quilt

I did get a chance to see this quilt after the binding was sewed down, and it is truly beautiful.  Phoebe will be able to enjoy this quilt for many years, and I’m super happy to have been a part of it.

AND THEN…Deanna’s Fairy Quilt

Deanna is the same quilter who made the Wedding Star quilt that took Viewer’s Choice at the Coburg Quilt Show.  I think this piece will take some honors as well:

Each fairy is associated with a flower, and the border also has each flower appliquéd on it

A quilt like this is tricky to quilt.  There is so much beautiful space for quilting design, and yet you don’t want to take attention away from the appliqué.

And notice the matching flower in the border…

I love each of these girls!

And a couple more:

I love this kick. And look at the beautifully done legs and feet!

The detail shows the triple crosshatching I did on the border as well as the variety of feathers

So I think this quilt is another winner from Deanna.  Thanks to her I got to work on this gorgeous quilt, and I didn’t have to do the applique myself!!
