Quilt for hurricane Sandy victim.

I finished my leader's and ender's quilt .
It was so much fun, so I am working on another one. 
I wasn't sure about a border, so I used the rest of the double four patches in the border. It worked out well, because I only had a set amount of backing fabric to use for the back and border. I had to splice the blue fabric in some sections, so I sewed a piece of orange rick rack on it. 

I quilted an all over rectangle and square design on it, bound the quilt with left over binding from about seven other quilts and  now the quilt is ready to go to the East coast for a hurricane Sandy victim.

Leftovers make wonderful baby quilts!

 I had blue minkee left overs from my sons quilt and bright flannel fabric from my grand sons quilt and I made a scrappy baby quilt. I had the green polka-dot flannel in my yard bin, also the blue for the binding. 

I did a modern wedge kind of quilting on it,filled it in with some designs.  I must have been hungry for pizza. 

Close up. I am still working on my free motion long arm quilting, especially small sections and ending up  on the design where I want to be. This is not easy for me.

Quick Christmas Quilt

I needed a quick Christmas quilt, and luckily I found in my stash a charm pack with 5 inch squares in Christmas colors. I made 96 half square triangles with them, and trimmed them down to 4 1/2 inch unfinished size. 

My quilt is only 6 blocks ( each block is 16 inch finished ) , so I made 24 of these units. I than rotated these units to give me the layout I wanted. 
 I added a border of this nice Christmas fabric and I quilted a feather motive on it, bound it with a gold binding and it is done, except for some loose threads. 
I like the way it came out.

Teenage Grand Sons Quilt is Finished

The quilt turned out bigger than I thought.
 I backed it with a nice deep red flannel. 

I added a scrappy border on three sides, left the top without a border so my grand son knows which way is up. 

Close up  of my swirls quilting.
 Now to tell the winner of the pattern Magic Maze
................ Drum Roll.............
It is Judy! Congratulations Judy, I will get it in the mail to you soon.
