Hi there! I know its been a while since I sat down to write to everyone. A week ago I finally got away for a few sewing days. I think my sewing machine did a happy dance when we arrived at the quilt store. (This post has been waiting to be published for a few days as I got a new smart phone and couldn't get the photos to download to the blog. Argh! Today I am thankful things are back to normal.)
It was a very productive few days. I finished a baby quilt top and five pillow cases. WooHoo! It felt so good to sew again.
Here's the pictures of the progression of the baby quilt during my sewing days.
The baby has arrived so now the quilting needs to get finished. I have the cutest turtle fabric for the backing. The inner part of the quilt is a pattern called "Child's Play" by Emily Cier published in Quilts from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Spring 2013. The outer border of fish is my design. The original pattern called for the quilt to finish 41" x 41", and it felt too small. I would rather the child have to grown into the quilt. My outer border is an additional 6.5" wide.
Above are my pillow cases. The three regular size pillow cases with puppy prints will be donated to charity. The king size pillow cases are for our new pillows from Ikea.
Below is a sneak peak at the quilts I have been finishing for customers. I will post full size pictures of them on Friday.
Next on the list for quilting is a bright orange quilt. You might have to wear sunglasses to look at it.
I hope you are enjoying this beautiful fall weather. It was a little chilly this morning but has warmed up nicely.
Today I am linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP.
Yours in quilting,
