I’m Back…

10 May

… and apparently I’m a quilter again!

I put the knitting away for a while and got the quilting back out and started quilting up a storm.  I’ve quilted six tops and already given them away without pictures being taken.  Here are some others that are finished or nearly finished from tops that were in my closet.

I think I pieced this at a retreat from nickels in my stash about 2 years ago. We are keeping this one and have already used it numerous times.

To be given away eventually. It’s a nice lap quilt for St. Jude or somewhere like that. These pieces were cut with my AccuQuilt GO!

Freehand quilting swirls in a variegated thread. Turned out nicely.

B.U. Butt Ugly! What was I thinking when piecing this one?

Thought I’d try a little custom quilting on this small (45 x 45) wall hanging.

Feathery-swirl fill didn’t turn out too badly. Stitch in the ditch left MUCH to be desired.

And finally a busy quilt top of Sonia’s. No quilting was going to show up on this baby – even with Dark Charcoal thread! Quick and easy panto and it’s done!

I’m doing some piecing of UFOs that are oldie moldies right now but plan on getting something loaded soon on the longarm.  I really enjoyed the quilting I did on the above quilt and am slowly getting back into the groove.

    Wow! You have been busy! Your quilts are beautiful…yes, even the one you said is “butt ugly”. I must say though I think the first one is my favorite. I love all the different colors.

      Thanks. I love RED~ It’s the new black. It goes with everything. 😉

    Great to hear Gina! Does that mean Keith and I will get our wedding present?! No pressure, but it would be wonderful to eventually get that beautiful quilt!
