Remember Melinda's quilt (7-13-2009). She sent a pic of her daughter, Heather, snuggled with the quilt on the couch. It was Heather's birthday present!

Good Monday morning, I finished my "Celebrate Spring" quilt for my friend's granddaughter. As I finished the quilt top, I was thinking of making a run to the fabric store for backing. But, when I thought about it, I had to buy so much extra fabric, that I made 6" strips for the backing. What a stash buster!!
Countdown: 1 quilt for my friend's daughter and 4 quilts for my sister. Plus 2 baby quilts for a gal at work. Quilting sort of keeps me out of trouble!

I have been visiting Laurie Simpson's blog (click here) quite a bit lately and telling her how much I love "Prairie Paisley". I finished the binding on this 60" x 60" darling last night and brought it to work this morning for "Show and Tell". One of our engineers bought it immediately!
I think that I need a "design wall" to see the whole picture. I would have changed a few placements. But, I still love it!

Remember Dick and Jane?
This is Vicki's Christmas present for her grandson, who will start kindergarden this year.
By the way Vicki, this will not look good on your couch!

This is a quilt called "Antique Brick" designed by Judy Rothermel. I really liked it. Then when I started sewing the pieces together, I didn't like it. The sashing was a woven fabric that stretched as I sewed. I put the whole thing away for awhile and then two weeks ago brought it back out and finished it. Now, I really like it again. Our niece is getting married in the fall and she might be getting this as our gift. We shall see...
