Bits n' Pieces of Quilting

This week's QAL we made the center stars.  It's not too late to join in with Happy Quilting's QAL.

 This is Nicoles's quilt called, "Country Hill Baskets" that I completely forgot to share.  I love the colors.
 Another from Nicole that was quilted about the same time is called, "Long Road Home" and gorgeous!
 This next one is so huge that I cannot get a full picture of it to share so I will just show Bits n' Pieces of it and ironically it is a Bits n' Pieces design called, "Star Light, Star Bright" - pattern #830 made by Valerie.
 She used batiks in this one and requested custom quilting since this one is for her and her hubby.
 I really wish my back lighting was better to really show off that outer border.
I woke this morning to 63 degrees, gray skies and more rain.  It's August right?  I was so chilled last night that I wore my winter sweats and was not going to turn on that heater.

Lovely quilting. Oh, we have been dipping into the 50's at night - yes, the sweats are sleepwear and an extra blanket on the bed as I am not ready to start the heater either.

Beautiful quilting on some lovely quilts, Mary!
We are in the 50s at night, but the days are still in the 90s, so the house doesn't cool down all that much--no sweats here yet. : )

beautiful quilts - I can never get enough of quilt blogs!!

Nicole said...

I am loving my quilts Mary! No bindings on yet, but I have them trimmed and ready to go. My plan is to set up the sewing room this weekend and get those bindings on next week. Thank you for your beautiful work.

Beautiful quilts & quilting! I love seeing your work. Great stars too! have a happy week!

Valerie Z said...

Wow, I love Nicole's Country Basket Quilt and Long Road Home! The colors are so rich and warm!! Might have to find those patterns and see about making them myself! Bob loves the quilt heading back to us..he's already looking forward to using it...just love it! Weather here has been hovering around 75 with a low of 50's last week...making me nervous thinking what winter has in store for us! Your star centers are fabulous too!

Jeanna said...

Gotta love when the points come together like yours! Love the star blocks.

I know I've said this many times before but your quilting is just amazing. I love seeing pictures!

Great job Nicole on her quilts too!

Leeanne said...

Lovely! I love the colours & of course your quilting.

QuiltSue said...

Your stars are looking great Mary, I'm looking forward to seeing this finished and quilted (I'm just guessing here that you won't be sending this out to someone for quilting?) - it's going to be gorgeous.

The other quilts you showed us are all lovely and your quilting finishes them off wonderfully.

Beautiful work and Nicole's quilts are stunning. We have had cool days too but my home is so compartmentalized opening windows is of no use. I enjoy the temps in my rocker in the yard. Id prefer sweats anyday, however my tomato plants don't like this cool weather at all.

Aunt 'Reen said...

Your stars are looking wonderful!
Such beautiful quilts - your quilting is gorgeous.

Needled Mom said...

Just catching up here, Mary, after being gone last week. Your stars are so pretty. The colors are just fabulous.

The quilting you did on Nicole's quilt is stunning too.

The house is coming along nicely. I can imagine how eager you are to see the studio space. I think I would be climbing the rafters!

It has been a strange summer in so many places.

Carrie P. said...

lovely quilts and quilting! It is weird weather we are having for sure.

PunkiePie (Jen) said...

awesome quilting as always!

Karen said...

The "Long Road Home" quilt is one I like a lot. The nine patches on point makes a nice setting for a variety of blocks or for a more subtle effect with the repeat light blocks between. Pretty.

MARCIE said...

Beautiful display of quilts! And quilting!

Jo said...

As always..wonderful quilting!!

Ava said...

Wow. You've been busy and they are all beautiful.
