pictures

These are the quilts I have been working on since vacation started. You will notice most are from Mary's Quick Stripie pattern, located on the side bar. Most of these tops were made by other people and given to me to quilt. Cory, Nancy and others made the tops and I did the quilting. I am making a dent in the pile of quilt tops I have sitting here, patiently waiting their turn on the machine!













This one I did some different quilting on. It was from the Pajama Quilter Reloaded book and was some pattern that reminded me of Christmas candy. I had a hard time with this one and it looked like fingers, not like the pattern in the book, but it turned out ok.





Close up of the quilting. I'm trying to do something new with my quilting. This was some swirls with echos from the Pajama Quilter Reloaded book. It took less thread than my normal meander and I like the way it turned out. I think I will try this one again.


Here are some pictures of the quilt tops I have finished this week. It is only Tuesday and I've been busy. I got another two done this morning. That brings my total this week (since Saturday) up to 7. Not bad to reach my goal of finishing up all of my quilt tops before the year is over. Plus there was that one quilt that was nearly done that I just quickly stitched in the ditch and then wrapped the edge over and bound.
