But onto quilts.
These first two quilts came from Rebecca in Alaska. She sent me two quilts to quilt for her and also sent along these two finished quilts for Kazakhstan. I was surprised that these were already done and so happy with them. They are just so cute! I love getting to look at what other quilters are doing since I'm not in a quilting guild. I want to join one soon, but they meet at strange times, like evenings, when I'm ready to go to sleep :) or during the day, when I have to work :(
more of the 63 squares. Can you tell I like this one?
Easy quilt for infants to teens--see the link on the side bar. Just 8 1/2 x 10 1/2 and 5 1/2 x 10 1/2 rectangles sewn together. What could be easier? Well, maybe a whole cloth quilt?
Baptist fan quilting--my daughter's favorite
These last pictures are of the quilts I quilted for Rebecca in Alaska. I didn't want to show the whole quilt since they are hers to show off. I will have to look up her blog and post that later, I'm not very technical at these things. She did a great job with these quilts and my favorite part of quilting them was getting to really look at each fabric. Since you have to pay attention when quilting, you get to spend time admiring each of the fabrics used in a scrappy quilt. I didn't realize until the one on the right was finished that it is a rail fence quilt. When you look at it closely, some of the blocks have smaller blocks in them, but when you step back, you can't see that and the rail fence pattern comes out. So neat. And so many different fabrics. I recognized a couple of them from fabrics I have but most were new to me. It amazes me how many different fabrics there are out there.
and finally a close up of the quilting on the rail fence quilt. I did one of my favorites, the sunburst quilting. I love it because it is easy, and looks really good. It could be masculine as well, but doesn't have to be. My daughter and son both love this one, so I think it is good for a girl or boy and since I didn't know who the quilt was for, I figured it would work.
