Love Never Fails

In celebration of the love month coming up, I quilt-scripted 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 onto a quilt today. I haven't put the binding on yet, but was so happy about it I wanted to share. :)  

I don't know the fate of this quilt yet. Maybe etsy.  I've been working on a lot of "healing quilts" for donation quilts as well.  I also have another similar top to this ready for a poem...

Have a happy.

Thanks for peeking in!!
Added picture. Added to Etsy shop for now.

Baby Quilt finishes

 This is a baby quilt finish. The top is improv log cabin in orange, aqua, neutrals. Backed with minky with little owls on it.  It came out wonderful soft.  Little problem is I have tiny specks of black that carried up from the bottom with the needle as it would go thru the black parts on the owl. I don't think it was a tension problem because my tension was good. ???

A second baby quilt, I quilted in the same concentric loops, but with a fuzzy white minky backing. It shows off the quilting more. 

That's it for the weekend. I better decorate the Christmas tree!

Quilt finishes

These are quilt finishes after an upgrade to my quilting machine. For years I have quilted with my Juki on a Grace frame, now I'm using an Avante 18 on it's frame from Handiquilter.  I've been finishing up some tops that have been sitting for a long while, plus making new.

1. Green Cross quilt. Made just because.
 2. Crown Royal quilt.  Made for a nephew to gift his father-in-law.
 3. Wintry stars.  Made with fabric gifted to me. Will gift at Christmas.
 4. Alabama Crimson Red quilt. Made for a friend to gift to his wife.
 5. Small squares of all scraps.  Gifted to son's girlfriend. 
6. Improv baby quilt. Just mellowing out with lighter colors.

That's the stack. I still have tops to quilt, and squares to make tops out of, and ideas to materialize.
