I've been busy trying to finish a wave of quilts so I can spend some time with my kids and get them ready for school before it starts.
I quilted these two cute quilts for a sweet lady named Gay--my husband's aunt. She was my very first customer, and started bringing me quilts when she heard I had gotten a longarm.
She is adorable and makes adorable quilts. This quilt is for a great-grandchild of hers.
Gay doesn't like heavy quilting, and she likes PUFFY quilts, so that's what I gave her! I found the highest loft poly batting I could find, and then doubled it on this quilt. It's a seriously puffy quilt.
For her blocks, she painted pictures of little animals with fabric paint.
I stitched around each animal, then around each block, and did some loopy-loops in the inner borders. I stitched in the ditch in the outside borders and left them plain. Simple!
I think this little duck is just adorable!
It's such a fun, happy quilt! It will be a super soft and cuddly quilt for a lucky baby!
This second quilt was made by Gay as well. Like I said, she doesn't like heavy quilting, so I tried to keep it simple.
It's whimsical and cute.
I crosshatched each block, and quilted some fun designs in the borders. Simple, and cute. Now that I've had time to rethink it, I probably should have done something else in the outer border. Something a little more whimsical, like hearts or something. Oh well, I still like that outer border, and I'll be using it again.
And, a view of the back is always fun to see!
This was a BIG quilt. 88 x 110. And, I just noticed that I missed a line...oops! I'll have to get it back from her and fix that! Luckily, she's local!
I have lots more pictures of finished quilts--I'll share more in another post! Thanks for taking a look!
