Finished PIGs

 DH helped me with quilt holding for pictures to show some of the quilts I have completed recently. The first one is from a kit I purchased from Fig Tree fall of 2010 at PIQF. This pattern was written with a good plan for dealing with all the bias in this quilt. I used a pattern called Feathered Curls for the quilting.

This one is more Fig Tree fabric that I purchased back in 2005? and is used in a Schnibbles pattern called Four Corners. I love the pale lime green border! I quilted it with feathers from a pattern called Chocolate Feathers.
I used the same Schnibbles pattern to use up still more floral scraps from the quilt I made for my mom last year. Quilted with Feathered Curls. This will go to my cousin who loves romantic and Victorian decor. She is traveling in Italy with my sister right now so I will send it to arrive when they get home.

Today I'm sewing borders on the Double Wedding Ring quilt that I'm finishing from a class back in 2003 (!) I leave you here with views from inside the sewing room and out the front window. I have a good group of helpers :-)

new blogger and quilt show

This is my first time posting with the new format so I'll just have to see how this goes. Elinor is sitting in my lap, 'helping me'.
The local Seven Sister's Quilt Show was this past weekend and I have a few photos to share of quilts I enjoyed.
First of course, a turtle. Really lovely!
 This one was a favorite partly because of the lime green border.
 Loved this country road of mailboxes.
 Nice selection of colors and applique in this one.
 This may have been my favorite in the show. The smaller blocks in borders around the center and the big stitch quilting.

 My friend won a ribbon! This is gorgeous with wonderful quilting.

I have some quilts of my own completed but need to coordinate with my quilt holder to get pictures of them. So more later...
