Monday Monday so good to me. Monday morning was all I hoped it would be....

I did a bit of quilting this weekend.  I finished up 3 customer quilts, what fun.  The first one is just adorable and getting ready for a long trip to Germany. Pattern is Coming Soon by Thimble Blossoms. Just love the fabric choices on this. So bright and cheery.  I quilted simple swirls in the background and 1/2 inside each of the boxes.  Quilters Dream batting, Bottom Line in bobbin and on top.  I wanted this one being extra soft for that baby.  I sure hope it's warmer in Germany that it is here ;)

Coming Soon - back - isn't that a fabulous fabric?
The second one is a panel quilt that is for a baby shower.  This is the first quilt that I've made that is flannel on the front and back.  Usually  only the back of mine are flannel.  I even used flannel for the binding.  Cute little owls.  Hobbs polydown batting, Bottom Line on top and in bobbin.  I used aurfil invisible thread to outline and SITD.



And the last one I'll be sorry to see this one go.  I LOVE scrappy quilts and this one had so many different fabrics.  I quilted all over feathers on this one.  Warm and natural batting, Glide on top, bottom line in bobbin.






I've got another scrappy quilt on the frame waiting for some feathers. Don't forget to check out all the linky parties on the side bar.  And if you haven't already signed up for Hands 2 Help 2014, it's not too late.  It's too late for the sign up prize, but there's plenty more prizes at the end.  This year there are 3 wonderful charities.  I've signed up for 1 per charity, but I"m hoping to have a couple sew ins before June, would be nice if I could get 3 per charity - wouldn't that be great?  It's a stretch goal.    Its' the first button on the side bar, go take a look.    I'm donating quilting up to a queen size quilt as one of the prizes.  I have 2 quilts done already, as I was anticipating this coming up.  I'll show those next week.    

I sure hope this Monday is better than last Monday.  I left my coffee on the counter Monday morning.  That was one long train ride to the city without coffee.  I'm hoping it's one of those things that only last once.  I think they need a coffee car on the train - there's gotta be a market there waiting for people like me.

  12. I love your quilting! Is it fair to say that if you have done FMQ with domestic sewing machine, it is easier to do wit a longarm? I'm asking this as I'm a proud newe owner of a Handi quilter Avante machine since two weeks... :)
