Wonderful Quilty Weekend

I had a customer quilt finished up on Saturday and another started on Sunday. I love quilting weekends. The first is a great quilt, a gift for girls hockey team coach. The hockey team colors are the bright green and black (like the borders). The colored squares are the college colors of the girls on the team. They will all be going to college next year. This is a gift one of the mom's made for the coach. The girls will each sign one of the blank white squares. The other white squares are emblems for the colleges the girls will be attending. What a great keepsake. The hockey player of the mom who made this quilt has been skating since she was 3 and playing hockey almost as long. What a great keepsake for the coach. Glad I was able to quilt it and hear the story of this quilt. The fabric on the back, hockey pucs, love it!  Oh and I think I FINALLY finished this quilt before I took it off the frame.  FINALLY!!!  Guess it helps when you do simple ;)
Girls Hockey Team quilt for coach
See I can do simple
Love the backing with the hockey pucs.
The second one on the frame is a scrappy broken  dishes quilt.  I'm doing an all over hook feather on this one.  There are so many different fabrics in this one, what a treasure.

Check out the side bar for the linky parties, so much fun and inspiration out there!!

  11. Wonderful quilting. Do you knot your beginning and ending stitches or do you start tiny and move to the correct size or ? When you begin and end your stitching? Just curious.

  14. I love your scrappy broken dishes quilt. I just love scrappy quilts. I quite often sit there just staring at my scrappy quilts, remembering the fabrics where they came from, what else I'd used them in... just lovely.

  16. Sometimes simple is just what the quilt doctor ordered. You always seem to know just the right design to compliment the piecing. Both quilts are very sweet!
