Two Finished Projects

Happy Weekend Everyone!

I have finished a couple of quilts over the past few weekends, they are wrapped and in the mail...finally!

This is the finished birthday quilt which I posted about a few weeks ago:

I made a wavy grid on the panels...

...and a spiral design on the sashing.

Kitty was part of the action when I was doing the layering:

During my week off at the end of February I also decided to make another birthday quilt for a friend in Colorado. I needed something quick and simple:

I did a meandering stitch in the blocks...
 ...and what my husband just called "a DNA design" on the green strips. (I'm sure there must be another name for this but DNA works for me right now!)

The next projects will be to put together the blocks for the school quilt and the bee quilt.

Hope you all are enjoying the spring weather. 
I wish I could take my machine out and sew on the balcony!


  1. It's lovely to see your latest projects my, you've been productive!! I must learn how to machine quilt one day. I have only done hand quilting so far:) I love the free flowing patterns you've used to make your quilts.

  2. Both the quilts are beautiful! I need to get brave and try free motion quilting again. I love using my walking foot for straight line quilting...but sometimes I need something different.

  3. Beautiful! I love the colors in the second one. So bright and cheery!!
