Finishing Quilt Projects

“Finishing” has been the goal during sewing sessions the past two weeks.

Flannel quilt top using the puzzle block for  Elizabeth was finished in 2010. Last week,  Emily,  of Quilt’m , did the wild large meander quilting. I bound and labeled the quilt and made a pillowcase to match the flannel backing material, a precious moments little girl and goose print.

McKenna’s quilt was started   November, 2010.  Emily quilted it with curves, and petals, and a gentle meander accenting the piecing. Now it is bound and labeled and ready to be mailed.

Elizabeth has a little brother, Jonathan. Their father was raised in Montana, when I saw this fabric with  printed forest scenes, I knew it was what I wanted for Jonathan’s quilt.   The top was finished in November, 2010, the backing was made from leftover print squares.  Emily quilted it with close attention to the patterns in the prints and the quilt block. This week it, too, was bound and labeled. Tonight Elizabeth and Jonathan’s quilts finally made their way home.

I am member of Kaye England’s “bread and Butter” quilt group and I have been working on a log cabin quilt for several weeks. This week I finished the log cabins.I’ll add a 3 inch border around the cabins. Tonight I’ll be putting together the backing, by making two rows of the 5×1 1/2 inch pieces leftover from the cabins.  These two rows will give me the length I need. I’m still trying to decide if I need to do something to add to the wideth. This picture is taken in the guest room at Brother Bob’s.

I already have two projects in the queue, I’m not sure which one to start next. Of course, there are several in my playhouse in various stages of completion.
