A Finish for May

The second gift quilt is finally quilted and bound. Hooray!!!  I quilted this myself with some simple stitch-in-the-ditch and the great wavy line patten in the borders.

It's a good size lap quilt  (or couch quilt as I call it) with extra borders that were not part of the original pattern.  The pattern is Blaze's Star by Buggy Barn quilts.  

This was a project from my sewing group many, many moons ago (back when Silver Thimbles was called Stitch n' Sisters).  The top was nearly finished and needed borders and was waiting for a good home. I added slightly smaller boarders and then it was ready for quilting and binding.


This is a belated wedding present for friends of mine.  I thought the hearts were fitting for a wedding quilt.

In this second photo, you can see Gomez trying to photobomb the quilt.  Gotta be fast to not get one cat or another in a photo at my house.

Great wedding quilt. I think you should have allowed Gomez into the picture, such a handsome model.

I really like this quilt and the colours. Is that a caramel colour or soft gold? Hard to tell with all our different monitors.
