I'm Quilting Here!

 Peggy (no blog) sent me several quilts to custom quilt for her.  Here is one of them.  For my records I call this one the Purple Geese Quilt.  I can't hardly see my feathers in the border.

 Nice, the last two photos of this quilt turned on me (as usual).  But I'm hoping you can see the quilting better.
 Karen from Log Cabin Quilter has now received her Great Pumpkin BOM back.  This was such a fun quilt.


I've been lurking about in blogland when I get a chance.  It gets me in trouble as I keep adding to the bucket list of quilts I would love to make someday!  Don't even get me started with Pinterest!  *sigh*

I now have a folder called "Top 100 Must Make Quilts!", and there's more than 100 in the folder! I just keep adding to it! And yes, I'm so afraid of Pinterest.....I know I could get lost in there for hours at a time! Just not enough hours in a day anymore!

Beautiful quilting on those quilts, too!

Cheryl said...

Okay, Karen's pumpkins are perfect!! You did a fabulous job enhancing it. I know what you mean by 'Pinterest. It seems to have replaced blogging.

Tina said...

Oh, I LOVE the first one with the flying geese! What a great job Peggy did! Do you happen to know what the pattern is called??

Tina said...

P.S. I can't wait to see your quilting on it!

Strlady said...

I just discovered Pinterest recently and I was on the boards for hours!! Ugh! I could have been quilting!
I must tell you that I have seen that BOM many times over the years and I think this has been the best quilting I've seen on it. Not surprising that! :)

Gorgeous and more gorgeous!!

Needled Mom said...

Those are both fabulous! The pumpkin one will be so much fun to display for Halloween and the fall.

My lists gets longer by the day too. The days are just too short to accomplish all that one wants to do.

Your quilting always amazes me, I really need to practice more and learn more about types of designs and what works best in spaces.

Karen M. Walker said...

Great quilting on both these quilts! I know what you mean about can't see the feathers in the border....i just recently quilted a quilt with a busy border fabric and i could hardly see the feathers i stitched. All that work, oh well....in the right light, you can see the texture a bit.

AnnieO said...

Beautiful, as always! Love the diamonds in the border on the pumpkins, and all the pretty feathers in the other.

Candace said...

Gorgeous, Mary! One way to beat the heat in your area, huh! I'm sure both quilters were thrilled!
Cheers!

These are showstoppers :-) You have such great design to highlight each quilt.

Valerie Z said...

Been out of town (again) but checking your blog every chance I got! I agree, the quilts are spectacular! Adore the pumpkins! If I had a folder with "must makes" these would be in there! Hope you are staying cool and all is well!

Vroomans' Quilts said...

I am a 'geese' lover and this is gorgeous. And then the zing - oh, those pumpkins are so cute and the quilting is just a fantastic addition to their presence. Just lovely.

Lynn said...

Beautiful!! The quilts and of course the quilting on them.
Yes, pinterest can be a dangerous place, my "quilts to make one day" just grows longer and longer.

Leeanne said...

Both stunning! I love the pumpkin one. Yes looking can land us in trouble.

Cyndi said...

Hey Mary! I totally agree with everyone...both of those quilts are awesome (I love those 'geese'!), but made especially wonderful by your remarkable quilting. Those pumpkins are soooo cute...one of these days I'm just gonna have to learn to applique! And I have to admit it...I have NEVER been on Pinterest. I don't do Facebook or Twitter either. Heck, I barely have time for my blog anymore. I'm sure if I went on there, I'd never get off the computer! :o\

Chat soon!

XOXO,

Cyndi

Great quilts. You do very nice work on the quilting.

Gerri said...

That is such beautiful quilting, Mary. And, what's not to love about pumpkins?!

Vivian said...

If you're feeling overwhelmed by a "bucket list" of quilts, there is a way to control it. Have a computer crash.
I lost 100s of quilt photos I'd found online, saved through the years. It was like a punch in the stomach. So I'm starting over and having a great time doing it.

Your quilting is exquisite. There are going to be two very happy ladies.

Wendy said...

Me too! My list keeps growing and growing.

Kaaren said...
