Auction Quilt

I finished another quilt.  This one is going to be auctioned for charity in Illinois.  I can't wait to hear how much it brings in.

I made this quilt before in king size for my bed.  The pattern is very easy and it works great with fat quarters and scraps.

Added a little color to the back.  It's also my cheater way of lengthen the fabric so I didn't have to buy more.
Hearts - Back

I did a large stipple in the border and then smaller stipple around the hearts.  I didn't do anything with the hearts, but the stippling makes them pop up.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a CREATIVE day.

Quilted for Another

I had a lady drop off a quilt top and back last Wednesday and was in a rush to get it quilted.  I think the baby it was for came much sooner than planned.  Anyhow, I had some time so it wasn't a problem to put it right on the machine.  The quilt is far to cute not to share.  The light in the girl cave isn't the best, but you get the idea.  It's 5" charm squares with the appliqued flowers.  The pink was VERY BRIGHT and cheerful.  It was hard to hand it back.  I quilted it with pink thread on the front and gray on the back using Frisky Feathers from Lorien.
