I've been very busy. My quilts quilted on the Tin Lizzie now number sixty-one! 11 of those were included in my Christmas gifting!
|1st gift quilt is and ABC quilt for granddaughter Serenity. I quilted the letters of the alphabet in the blocks adjoining pictures depicting things that start with each letter.|
|The backing is a pretty floral from the stash.|
|Next up is a quilt for my sister, Mary.|
This is made from winning of the September 2011 block lotto. Batik Curvy Rail blocks. Quilted in an all-over freehand design I'm calling "Sun Swirl Meander "
|Back of Mary's quilt also from the stash.|
|The quilting shows really well on the dark green corduroy backing. I quilted a freehand ribbon-flower meander. the pillow panel is made fro a cotton velour. A very comfy-cozy quillow. Mimi loves it!|
|Here it is folded into a pillow. I used another 9 patch and border fabric to make the pillow panel.|
|Next I quilted six quilt tops Mom had made to be donated to a veteran's center. I only took picture of 5 of them. This one is outline quilted on the appliqued picture, meandered in the background and a simply feather type border.|
|This one has star centered fan quilting.|
|Outlined the Eagles and ribbon candy in the border.|
|Outlined the flag and the rest is allover paisley echo freehand.|
|Back of the above.|
|Back of the following. The quilting really shows up well on this. I did a fairly detailed outlining of the center panel, a swirl centered fan freehand, and a simple feather border.|
|Front of the above. |
I also quilted one more for Mom, but failed to take a picture.
|Last quilt is Johnny's. I asked him his favorite color: green. Found a large piece of green I thought he would like in the stash and used it for backing, binding, and the main diagonal of Scrappy Trips Blocks from Bonnie Hunter's website.|
|I quilted with a freehand swirl centered fan design. i love the texture fan quilting gives to a quilt.|
