DIL's first quilt!

This is my daughter in law's first finished quilt! "Finished" because she has been working on a quilt top, but needed to put together a baby quilt quickly for a gift.  I taught her how to use the Juki on the quilting frame yesterday and she quilted it up with stars and swirls. She did great. I think she is a natural. : )

Scrappy and a little bit improv

I don't know why, but I love to just sew pieces together, they don't even have to match! Makes for a bit of an ugly but unique quilt... Maybe I'll start pulling a color-way before I sew. 

Happy Weekend.

Reverse Applique

I have been experimenting with Reverse Appliqué on the sewing machine.  fun fun fun.  You layer your quilt sandwich with a second layer on top, do the stitching, then cut away parts thru the first layer only... Very easy, and fun to watch the color pattern emerge as you cut.
