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!

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...
