A Few Projects In The Works

A few months back I purchased a kit from Green Fairy Quilts as a Christmas gift for a special somebody in my life. Of course can't give that away in case she reads my blog. Her favorite color is pink. I've just got borders and quilting to do before showing it again.

Then there is a bit of hand piecing. This was a little Inklingo kit that Quilt Obsession sent me awhile back. One thing I absolutely love about her blog post is she includes photos of Lester and Smudge in each one! You must go see who I'm talking about.
Then this quilt is on the frame. This the best photo I could get to show some of the quilting. Hopefully soon some finishes to share!

The pink quilt is so sweet and pretty. I'm working on a UFO DWR quilt that's been sitting around for a while, I switched from hand sewing to machine and it's looking great.
I love the echo quilting.

Mary, you are a busy quilting girl. The free motion echo quilting is gorgeous and I love all the projects you are working on!

Great projects, Mary - I love what's on the frame!! The pink quilt is going to be so cute!

That's a pretty in pink very feminine quilt from the green fairy. A blue wedding ring! Oh that will be gorgeous. Your quilting on the applique looks great! Is this your quilt or a customers?

Ginger Patches said...

Is that Posh I spy in that block? I love that block! I had the hardest time finding something to do with my Posh...don't know why. I wish I would have waited until I saw this!

Magnolia Bay Quilts said...

Your Posh quilt is very pretty! I can't wait to see how you quilt it. I know it'll be spectacular!

I'll have to check out Inklingo. The kit looks interesting. Are the pieces pre-cut? I like the way the corners are beveled.

LOVE the Ma-Ma's Garden quilt in the frame. I made that one a few years ago, and a co-worker talked me into selling it to her. I love your echo quilting. Very nice!
