Quilting, quilting, quilting

I just wanted to let everyone know that I am still alive and well!

The same Saturday night that I got the binding put on the pink and brown quilt, I also got the binding put on the scrappy quilt below. I am giving it to two friends that are getting married right before Christmas. Her bridal shower is tomorrow night. Hopefully, not too many college girls will be there - so they all won't start expecting a "wedding" quilt. (The two people getting married are in their mid- 40's.) This quilt was already done except for the binding and was just sitting there waiting for a good home!

Sunday afternoon there will be a baby shower for a lady from church. This family's oldest child is Ian's age - 5.5 years old. This one will be number 4! We are all excited because this one will be a girl - after 3 boys! This quilt was made from the leftovers from the quilt me and my mom made for my cousin's new baby girl. The only thing I had to buy was the pink for the border and the backing. I love the polka dots!

Naomi - DON'T READ ANY FARTHER IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SEE YOUR CHRISTMAS PRESENT. Can you be trusted?

Today I got to sit down and piece a while. A few weeks ago, Susan posted a picture of a quilt her daughter had made and it had a great polka dot fabric in it. I had to get some for me and a friend - so I emailed Susan to double check that it had come from her store. When I called to order it, I happened to think to ask the lady if they carried Denyse Schmidt's fabric line for Free Spirit. They do! So I asked the lady to send me a variety of fat quarters in blues and greens. My sister is the one who turned me onto Denyse Schmidt - so I am using the fabric to make her a wall hanging for her dining room. Yes, it will match - her dining room is a lime green color!


Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Very nice quilts. I can't remember if I commented on your brown/pink quilt. It is lovely. Thanks for sharing your beautiful work with us.

I love the Christams wall hanging -- what a great collection of fabrics, I may have to go on a general hunt for such things....

Sarah, You've been really busy. Both of these quilts are so pretty. Congratulations on finishing - that's the hardest part for me! I like your quilt hanger too. Don't need a human kind with something like that. The lime green colors are so different from the soothing Christmas colors you had in the first quilt. You are so versatile!

All three quilts are beautiful - even more so since they are special gifts!

Sarah! I didn't know that was you! I'm glad you're enjoying your Flea Market Fancy - they've now released 11 of the prints in pinks and yellows.

What are you going to do with the big dot?

Are you a show-off, or what? Love all the quilts! Especially the wallhanging! If Naomi doesn't like it, I'll take it! I have the lime green one that you made for me in my bathroom and it cheers up the room, considerably- it's hanging up about 10 feet from the floor so the little ones can't use it for a towel!

WOW! I haven't had time to catch up and found such great eye candy today! The wedding quilt is wonderful and the other 2 quilts are too cute!

Susan said...

Oh, those polka dots are wild! Darling baby quilt, though, and the green one is a really interesting study in color.

Love the scrappy. Were there lots of young things who will be expecting a wedding quilt now?

Great great quilts. Love both the bright ones and the scrappy ones that you do :-)

These are all great quilts. I especially like how you worked in the border your scrappy quilt with the green.
And the lime green one is so bright and cheerful!
