4 Patch Posey Quilt

Another UFO (unfinished object) nears completion - now on to the binding.  This 4 Patch Posey Quilt has been on my To Do list for about 3 or 4 years.  I'm so pleased to have it quilted.  I put feathered wreaths in the 4 patches, feathers with curles and leaves in the first border, and meandering feathers in the outer border.

Pumpkin Wall Hanging for Judy

This is a comfort quilt/wall hanging I made for Judy.  Her favorite season is fall so I hope she'll like the pumpkin.  This is my first attempt at hand quilting a quilt.  I took a class at Foothills last year and finally decided to give it a try.  I really enjoyed it so may do some other small pieces in the future.

Embroidered House Quilt Quilted for Joy

The other custom quilt I finished in April was a cute embroidered house quilt for Joy.  This quilt has feathered wreaths, feathered swags, and a meandering feathered border.  It's a little bit hard to see because of the dark fabric.  She was thrilled with how it turned out. 

Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilted for Darlene

I quilted this colorful Grandmother's Flower Garden for Darlene.  I decided to put a feathered wreath in the blocks.  When I took it to her at our Foothills Meething in April she showed it to the other gals.  They seemed to like the quilting and said that the wreaths made it look like the blocks were spinning. 

Here's a close-up of the quilting.  Darlene wanted light gray thread which worked pretty well except I thought blue might have been better in the bright blue "sashing".  She gave me a white backing so she preferred the gray thread.  All in all, I'm pleased with how it turned out.
