I know, I've been totally MIA here all weekend. I have a really good excuse.
Chris and I got home from the river Friday evening and I decided to get started on quilting my 3 veteran's quilts. I really wanted to get them done this weekend so that I could quilt 2 for Estelle. I made good progress Friday night so I called her Saturday and offered her a deal. I would quilt her quilts if she would bind mine....I even had the binding already made. She agreed and I became a woman on a mission! By the time she arrived Sunday afternoon I had finished all 3 of my quilts and was ready to lead hers. She left with my 3 quilts and I got started quilting hers and I finished both of them by 7 pm.
Here are her quilts. Of course they are all quilted with pantographs.
This one is made from leftover blocks from a veteran's quilt that someone else made. Estelle added the dark blue from her stash and some of the batik scraps. I quilted this one with my favorite pantograph, Square Spiral.
All of these quilts go to the local veteran's hospital and are given out for Christmas. These are a little different from QOV quilts because they are smaller. The average size is 48 x 60.
This one, bad photo and all, is a kit that I made up for Estelle with my Go! 6" tumbler. I am slowly getting rid of my print stash for charity quilts. This one takes 110 tumblers and they are arranged 11 tumblers in a row for 10 rows. She put this together in a day.
After the marathon of quilting I decided to cut another quilt. Another guild friend, Nancy, asked for a kit and she will work on this at the next Sewing Saturday. These are all some of the old Kyle's Marketplace prints and I think it will make a fun quilt. I was happy to reduce the produce stash a bit.
Willie needs a good cleaning right now but once I get that done I will load this Stack n Whack that my Mom made.
First I have to pay bills and do some laundry and other chores so go on over to Patchwork Times and see what everyone else is doing.
