Joan's Just Rosy

Joan made this adorable wallhanging. The pattern is from American Patchwork & Quilting Magazine--Aug. 2016 issue and called "Just Rosy".  I think it is just awesome!  You can see the original version here. Almost identical!

I quilted it similarly to the magazine article, but did a geometric design in the snowball blocks where they did a feather wreath. 

I used a coordinated gray thread throughout. I changed to an invisible thread and quilted around the inner circle of the flowers. That way my little wobbles and imperfections would not be as noticeable.

I just love this pattern! Joan let me keep her issue of the magazine, so I just may make one of my own someday.  Thanks Joan!

Katie made this lap-sized pinwheel quilt.

I've done this design before in an all-pinwheels-all-the-time-quilt before and Loved how it turned out. 

This one was no different. I put the feather/swirl in the solids and c2c in the prints so the quilting will shine where it's supposed to and the pretty prints can shine too.

I used a medium brown thread on it. 

I love the back too!

Thanks Katie!!

Minne Mouse Embroidered Quilt

Peg made this adorable Minnie Mouse themed machine embroidered quilt for her little granddaughter. Soo adorable!

I quilted hearts and swirls in the black areas, outlined the embroidery and back filled with little curls and hearts.

The mouse eared fabric was a perfect choice for this one.

Cute cute cute! 
Thanks Peg!

Linda's Baby quilt panels

Linda made a couple baby quilts using printed panels. 

I outlined the bear and flowers and things and filled in the background with a meandering loop.

On this adorable giraffe quilt I did an all-over on it, except for the center scene.

I outlined the tree, giraffes, and clouds. 

Thanks Linda-these panels were fun to do!
