The Rush is On!

We (I mean the members of the Covered Bridge Quilt Guild) have about 6 weeks to finish all our quilts for the our Bi-Annual Quilt Show Saturday, March 16th and Sunday, March 17th, 2013.
Judging will take place on Thursday, March 14th and then on Friday the quilts will be hung for viewing.  First I am finishing customer quilts, as a fell behind at Christmas time because of working 60 days back at my job with the State of Illinois and then three weeks of fighting off that respiratory flu virus.  I was able to do some piecing while sick as long as I could just sit.  It was a nasty virus.

This a 1600 jelly roll quilt I worked on over the weekend.  It has alternating rows of waves and fishies.  The orange border fabric is full of fishies.  It turned out really cute.

Here's a view of the fish.  Its very hard to photograph.  This is the back of the quilt.  It was fun to be creative with the Pro Stitcher. 

Here's the next quilt which has snowmen heads placed over the face of this large strip quilt.  Again, had fun with the Pro Stitcher and free motion quilting.  Placed Snowflakes randomly  on the different strips of fabric.  Some show up nicely as shown above.  Filled in with meandering loops.  Below each Snowman head are a set of mittens. This was a pattern given out at Garden Club at Quilter's Garden Quilt Show.

Have a great Monday!
Yours in quilting,
