This is a wholecloth cross stitch baby quilt that was made by a mother and her daughters for a great grandchild. Since it was pre-marked, I quilted it as indicated. The backing has blue, tan and brown dots and I hand sewed a chocolate binding. The embroidery on this quilt was excellent -- the best I've seen in a long time. I think it turned out cute.
You've all heard of the Jellyroll Races. Well this was a batik jellyroll that one of my friends made. She LOVES batiks. She also loves these colors, which also happen to be some of my favorites too. It's fun working on quilts with pleasing colors and much easier on the eyes than looking at something that doesn't appeal to you. The requested quilting pattern she wanted was a simple curvy meander, which turned out perfect with all of the straight lines on the front. It's a gift for one of her grown daughters.
I only got a couple of shots of the finished QOV quilts from our quilting yesterday. This was a pretty patriotic sampler. These are so much fun to quilt because every block is different. You don't get bored at all!
We had a very productive day and the host church served the best lunch -- a large variety of all kinds of salads and wonderful desserts. You know, quilters are the best cooks and we were a large group to feed.. There were 110 women and we finished 7 or 8 quilts by the end of the day.
