Some Finished Quilt Projects

A few weeks ago I got quilts back from my longarmer, Michelle. I finished the bindings, took photos and meant to write a post. Then Thanksgiving and Christmas events jumped into my path. I have wrapped most of the Christmas presents and sent some off to recipients who are out of state. 

I am happy to have finished my Rings Quilt. The idea came from Missouri Star Quilt Company's video. This was a very easy pattern to work up and I am so pleased with the colors. Michelle did a fantastic job on the quilting with pebbles in the centers of the rings and swirls in the blue rings and the border. It is just a bit larger than a lap size.






 My Halloween 4-patch Kaleidoscope Quilt is done and it IS a lap size quilt. 



I like all of her quilting here, especially the curved lines in the wonky orange borders around the kaleidoscope centers. 



The Kaleidoscope Tablerunner is done. It is long, but it fits the table well. The photo is not the best but I think you get the spinning look of the hexagon blocks. Michelle quilted the top in a lime green and it is so impressive. I would not have thought of using lime. I had asked her to do a web motif and she did it in the centers of the hexagons. Outside of those blocks she used an overall curved motif.




The backing was the last bit of flying witch fabric I had, so there is a short middle seam in the backing. 


The final quilt is my QOV. I began this a few years ago. It is finished and only needs a label. Our guild gathers the Quilts of Valor at a showing we have in July and then we send them to the organization.


This week I will help my daughter with the quilting on a baby quilt she finished over Thanksgiving. I am looking forward to our sewing time together. 

May the holiday spirit keep you cheerful and smiling and free of stress.
