Charms

I have two more quilts to show you this week, also finished a long time ago.  This first one features charm packs of fabric — precut into 5″ squares.  Looking back on the project, I’m amazed I figured out how to add these scalloped borders with the binding.  It turned out real pretty, don’t you think?

Virginia Ohr did the lovely quilting for me.  She also quilted this “DNP” (Disappearing Nine Patch).  I love the apples she quilted for me.  This pattern is easy to do — you simply make several nine patches and then cut and turn them into certain patterns before sewing them back together.  I enjoyed making this quilt, too.

Two New Quilts

I recently finished two more quilts that had been in the works for a long time.  This first one is a Jo Morton pattern for which I used a back-basted appliqué technique.  I really love how it turned out.

Isn’t Virginia’s quilting beautiful?

The other quilt I recently completed is a pattern called “That 70’s Quilt.”  I used Kaffe Fassett fabrics for this one.
