Three Down One to Go.....

On June 1st, I had 4 full size quilts pieced but not quilted…as of July 2nd, I’m down to one….. I’ve been pretty focused. Two and ¾ are binded and ready for use. The last quilt will hopefully go on the frame tonight. I have a three day weekend and then it will mean I’m back to work.


One of the quilts that I quilted I did some line quilting that I was coached on by Linda. The lines are not evenly spaced, nor are they straight and parallel with one another.
It was fun to quilt together though I did go through two spools of thread. I did some loops around the flowers in the corner.
I still pretty much meander most quilts but it was fun to try something a little different.

A friend sent me fabric for my journalist daughter. Newspaper pieces splashed around will make a cute desk topper or journal cover for Chelsey. The Christmas pattern came with it. I just love holly and berries so I had a wonderful day at the mailbox. Thanks Again....

Love it Melanie, it looks terrific. The line quilting I find so much fun and totally stress free. Enjoy your long weekend.

Your quilting looks very nice. I seem to be more in a "make the quilt top" mode than a "finish 'er up". You inspire me.

Have a great holiday weekend. I'll be thinking of you next week when you are back to work.

I like the lines of quilting. Seems very appropriate for the quilt you did it on. I had not thought of doing something like that.

That newspaper fabric made it into my newspaper quilt. :o)

I like the pattern of the quilt featured, was that an original idea? I haven't been over your way for awhile so I surfed along and quite enjoyed my stay.

I love that little quilt with flowers and boxes! And I love the lines going back and forth!
