been busy

i had a bunch quilts go home lately.

first Theresa's block swap from a LQS.

i quilted feathers in the setting squares. i CCed and loops in the pieced blocks.
pearls in the border and my scroll design for the outer border.
then, rose's Christmas tree BOM.
 a simple E2E filler with CCing in the blocks...
third, Roxanne's Sylvia's bridal sampler from the elm creek quilters books.
those are 140 6inch blocks!
she said it took her 4 and a half years to piece the quilt.

see the quarter? those nine patches have 1/4inch finished squares!

i quilted a dense loop meander to match the proportions of the tiny blocks.
this quilt is Lisa's.
it is her very first pieced quilt.
she did a great job and i'll bet it'll be the first of many!
she choose a solid white for the backing and the pink thread really shows the quilting!

i did two for betty, but seem to have missed getting pictures of one.

this is a a classic blue and yellow color scheme.
made for a day bed in her florida home!

quilted with my 'scroll work' E2E.

then i got the binding done on my 30s swap quilt.
i went with Kona solid green.
it washed up great!
and it's done!!

so that's what i've done the last couple weeks!

thanks for looking
