Quilts

Josh helped me take a few pic's today of some finished quilts.
Here is two table runners I did last fall, I finally quilted them and the Binding Fairy worked on them last weekend. I will give them as gifts this year.

This is my Christmas Hanky quilt. Mom gave me the fabric a few years ago and I got it done this summer. My sewing skills were a little off on this one, everything I did was wrong and the seams don't match real good but after ripping a few times I gave up and just finished it. (I started wrong by trimming the blocks to small...) Just another to add to my Christmas Quilt Collection.


The Lighthouse quilt will go to charity, I think a nursing home will get this and a few more we have done with this fabric with our Orchard Quilters Group. This make 4 finished lap quilts.



And last but not least this is 1 of 3 pre-print baby quilts I quilted for quick gifts and charity when the need arises. I am working on a baby quilt stash and these make the best gifts.
We had Orchard Quilters group tonight and Lori from SD came and sewed with us, she's a lot of fun to be around and she sews fast too! (Thanks for the help Lori!!!) We got 32 string blocks done in dark colors, I will be setting them together within the next month and getting it quilted. I brought them home because Mom is heading to Seattle for her Uncle's 75th B-day. (Happy Birthday Uncle Jack!) Then she will be on her way to Florida for the winter, gonna be a great place to spend all the COLD months this year. Soooooooooooo if anyone out there is interested in the Binding Fairy job please apply here.........................................

Jennie, Jennie, Jennie you are such an optimist in thinking there are applicants for the Binding Fairy job. WE all wanted your Binding Fairy. I think I've figured out the growing strip basket problem too. Other quilters are breaking into your studio at night & leaving their scraps. Can I loan you one of the neighborhood Pit Bulls as a watchdog to keep that from happening anymore??? LOL (I'd do just about anything to get rid of those dogs that doesn't bring the law down on my head.)

Jennie, all your quilts and gifts are beautiful. But I'll pass on the Binding Fairy job ... have enough of my own to do. And yes, Lori is a hoot! Glad you all have been able to spend some together.
