Gina's Christmas Charm Quilt


Here's another Christmas quilt I did last fall. Gina made this sweet little quilt with some 5 inch squares. 


Loved these sweet little festive prints. I quilted all-over curls and holly leaves.


Thanks Gina!

Peg's Red Machine Embroidered Christmas Quilts


Peg stitched up a couple more redwork machine embroidered Santa quilts. Just like the first one she made. She decided to make one for each of her 3 children for Christmas. Yes, these were quilted last October. I'm that far behind in the blogging. 


So, naturally I quilted them all the same way as before.



A little wreath with holly, berries, pine twigs and ribbon curls.


And outlining and backfilling the Santa blocks- just making it up as I go.


The back.







Thanks Peg!

Pink Tulips and Table Topper


Diane brought me these two small projects to quilt up. I just love this first one. Scrappy pink tulip baby quilt.


It totally looks like something I would make :)


I quilted an all-over design with paisley swirls and leaves.


This one was done without batting to keep it lighter weight and have more of a drape. 



The backing was a white fleece. So cozy!



More all-over quilting for this table topper quilt.



This did have batting.



The back.
Thanks Diane!

Black and white bear/Sheep


Sharon made these sweet little baby quilts. They are black and white with just a tiny touch of pink or blue in them. 


I outlined the sheep and lightly filled in the bodies with some stitching.


I filled the background with lots of swirls and curls and things.


For the wide borders, I quilted an echoed undulating wave all around. 


The back--more dimpled minky in a soft gray.


Here's the blue bear version.


I did the same type of background and outlined the bear as well as his tie.


I did a different border with a big ribbon candy/loop design.



Thanks Sharon!

Linda's Bright Orange Floral


Linda made this super bright quilt with some bright floral fabrics.



I quilted all over with lots of flower designs.


Leaves and half-feathers.


Love this colorful fabric!



This was my first time quilting with this dimpled minky. I was concerned about how it would look after it was quilted. Would the dimples deflate? 


Nope. 
They are just fine. 
No issues at all. 
Keep quilting on!

Thanks Linda!
