It really feels good to get some of those unfinished quilts done !! It truly gives me a sense of accomplishment. The first quilt was done by my LQS as a Mystery Tour Around the World. I started this at least two years ago. Here is the quilt for Japan.
This was machine quilted by Sarah Parrish. She used beautiful Asian Butterflies as the quilting pattern.
My next finish is from the book "Quilts Without Corners". This was super easy to make and you can just about finish piecing it in a week-end. So why did it take me so long to put the binding on??
Hmmmmm...no real excuses, just trifling!! This was also machine quilted by Sarah.
My last finish is a table runner that is both machine piece and appliqued.
It is from the Thimbleberries Calendar Quilts book. This runner was machine quilted by Deb Jacobs. It was quickly claimed by Mellow Yellow, Mel for short. Sometimes we even call him Melman from the Disney movie where Melman the giraffe worried about his spots. I think the runner received a FOUR PAW approval !!!
I will leave you with one last photo...of my favorite day lily "Always Pink".
Follow along with me on my quilting journey. I hope I can inspire you on your quilting journey. Meet all of my quilt inspectors (QI's) and watch them excel at their appointed task of giving each quilt a full CAT SCAN !!
I am a Registered Nurse by profession, but prefer to spend my time quilting. I have a wonderful husband and grown daughter that I am so very proud of. I spend most of my free time quilting and enjoying the antics of my furry little feline helpers. Every quilt gets a full CAT SCAN by a certified QI (QUILT INSPECTOR otherwise known as one or more of the cats), made by the IQ (INSANE QUILTER)....ME !!! I am a third generation quilter and enjoy the creative process of quilting.
