Quilt 39! - Cinderella

 Cinderella, made with a PHQ swap in the nineties. I had the blocks all together with the QNM June 1995, waiting to be sewn. Not sure why I waited so long to make this quilt but it is completed and will make a nice travel quilt.
 It finished at 76" x 100" so is a nice large twin. Lots of different fabrics on the back, using many of my purples from back in the nineties, too.
It's interesting to see all the different fabrics from 15 - 20 years ago. A little piece of history here.

Quilt 38 - Under the Sea!

 Another quilt using leftover fabrics! What fun!
 I found a fish fabric for the back I already had, too,
and finished it with a nice machine binding!

Quilt 37 - Raspberries!

I officially quit doing long arm quilting for others this past week when I had another birthday pass. After nine years, I thought it was time to get moving on some more of my quilts. It was a hard decision as I had so many wonderful customers but I can already tell I made the right decision!
Here is the first quilt I made with leftovers from another quilt.
 I've always been a fan of strippy quilts!
 Always the close-up and 
the backing! Why do I like fun backs?? I guess it's the surprise factor and also a way to use up the rest of the extra pieces. About an 1/8" of a yard of fabric is all that was left of these scraps.

Quilt 35 & 36 - Black & White Quilts!

This is the 2010 Black and White BOM I worked on again this year. Finally completed, and glad I went forward with it!
 This quilt was made for a great nephew who was born on the 4th of July. That will be an easy birthday to remember.
 I followed the theme and colors shared with me.
It was a fun quilt to design!

Quilt 34 - Camouflage Quilt!

 This camouflage quilt was totally made in a weekend. A very easy pattern but it highlights the fabrics. From Atkinson Designs, The book Happy Hour. I resized the blocks to 12" finished which was simple to do with EQ7

The recipient was overjoyed!!

Quilts 32 & 33!

 I took scraps from Lacey's baby quilt and made this quilt for a baby girl. It's always amazing how many scraps you have left over, isn't it?
 Here it is quilted with some hearts and daisies!
 Then, scraps still left, I made this dolly quilt for Lacey for Christmas. She loves her baby dolls and always has several in her crib at night with her.
I used a soft minkie for the back.

Quilt 31 - A Cat for Dana!

An 8" quilt for a friend's 70th birthday. Our group makes birthday quilts for special years and this time, it will be small quilts all attached to each other. Can you tell? She loves cats!
Don't know why but I always like to see the backs of quilts!
