Weekend Quilting

Yeah! A finish. This was a BOM I inherited from my sister. I have already finished the fall version and here is the winter quilt. I love the scrappy look of this.

I hand quilted with #8 ecru perle cotton making chunky, primitive stitches. I got most of the quilting done on Thursday night during the Broncos and Ravens game. I put the binding on it this morning and watched the morning football games as I hand quilted it down. The fall and winter versions of this quilt are being sent back to my sister as a house warming gift. They get to move into their new house next week...

I basted this Sea Life Baby quilt and this Welcome to the Jungle Baby quilt and will also quilt them with #8 perle cotton and chunky stitches.

Aren't the bright colors awesome! So, I desperately wanted to piece another embroidery quilt today, but I restrained myself. The embroideries are fall themed with a scarecrow, sunflowers, and a cornucopia and I plan on making it scrappy. I have to make progress on the hand quilting of these two baby quilts...Maybe next Sunday during the football games!

I got more zebra fabric to bind this one with. Too cute! Thank you for visiting.
