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!
