DWM 5/27 - Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial, and thanks to all who serve so that we can celebrate this wonderful day.

In honor of memorial day I finished a QOV that was sent by Jane who is my QOV partner this month.   Beautiful strings  on this one, love how it looks together.  I used a stencils for the string blacks and simple  straight line quilting around each of the blocks.   Love this one.


I did get a lot of things done yesterday.  But not a lot of pictures  yet to show  for it :)  I went through the batting scraps  and was able to put together all four battings needed for the H2H quilts. And I still have some left.  I pieced all the backs for the quilts and now just need to get them quilted.  I'm trying to resist the "quilt it like crazy" urge and hoping more for finished:)  Well I have one quilted - Twinkle.  I used fantasy flame pantograph  on this one, just love the texture it gives.  And I get can get a quilt completely quilted in a couple of hours with this one.
Twinkle - H2H#1 back

I got the last of the tops pieced - this is the girls pezzy print zig zag- now on to the quilting....

  1. The QOV is amazing in how you used color! It looks three-dimensional. Good luck with finishing your other quilts. It's always so tempting just to make blocks than to finish. Especially the binding!

  5. Wonderful quilting... Great job. I love using up odd ball pieces of batting -- but not the putting them together so I can use them. That Girls Pezzy Print is a great design.
