Good Tuesday afternoon all! I don’t know about you all but I’ve had better days. You might remember my last post consisted of a cute picture of my son sporting a splint from breaking his arm.
Well, this morning I made a trip to the ER. This has been one heck of a vacation. It looks like I have more back issues that will need to be resolved. I’m hoping if surgery is required it’s quick like the last time.
Any who…I have some pictures of the quilts I quilted before this nightmare trip to Missouri commenced. Mom and Gene have twin grandbabies and they turned 3 yesterday. Mom, Kathy and myself all worked together to create some awesome quilts for their birthday presents.
Mom and Kathy did all the piecing and embroidery and I did the quilting. And I was forced to bind one of them against my will. Just kidding. I did it because I’m so super duper nice.
Quilt number one is for the grandson.
Hopefully you can see my quilting in the pictures. I stippled in the blocks that have embroidery and did little bubble things in the nine patch blocks.
I stippled the border and quilted the side triangles with one of my favorite things, wavy lines.
We used a heavy weight fabric for the backing. I wasn’t sure how it would quilt but it turned out pretty awesome. I didn’t have any issues with my tension or thread breakage.
Quilt number two is for the granddaughter. Since they are twins the quilts are similar but there are a few things I did different on hers.
I tried to mimic the flowers in the border fabric with my quilting. I think it turned out pretty good.
