Graduation Quilt Done

I finally got the Graduation Quilt finished and am happy with the results. This quilt had to be quilted with one color thread, then rewound and quilted with another color. The problem with this is that if at the first passing, some of the backing is not taut, them when you go back over the quilt, puckers can happen, and it is not pretty!

Machine quilting

Here are a quilt that I finished and delivered last week. It belongs to a young lady who lives 20 miles from me. She makes a lot of quilts, more appilque and t-shirt quilt. Her mother also quilts, I have done several for her as well. It is always interesting that they will usually bring 2-4 at a time, very proficient both of them.

I have two quilts that I am making for myself right now, one is a Stack & Whack Four Patch Posie, made using Outhouse fabric. The blocks sure turned out nice, that is a fun pattern, once you get up the nerve to cut your fabric. I will post a photo when I get it done.

I received one of the nicest boxes in the mail today. I belong to an on-line art quilt group, one of the ladies, BJ Elder has been talking about Dark Chocolate Peanut M&M's. Now I have never seen those lovely purple bags in the store, so she was so kind as to send me two bags, wrapped in a Fat Quarter of the cutiest Chicken fabric, all tied up with a bow. What a terrific lady she is, and by the way she has a blog here, BJ Elder Thank you BJ, you are the Bomb!

Time to get back to it.

Here is a quilt I finished in the last few days, it is now home with the owner. This was a nice change from normal, as it has been a while since I have done anything Christmasy so to speak!

Well the hackers are still trying to get to this blog, but I have or did change my setting so that I have a say over what comments are posted. Just this morning I had another one, again from Asia, I promptlty rejected it. Maybe after a while they will get the idea, "Stay away".
