At last, some more quilts!

A couple of posts ago I said I would show you some of the quilts I've been busy with for customers, well that was a couple of months ago and we are now into 2011,  Happy new Year Everyone. 
Here are a few pictures of quilts since October.
Gwen's 1930's Hearts
Gwen's Hearts border
The hearts were echo quilted a bit like a celtic knot with simple lines in the setting triangles to complement the piano key quilting in the border.

Gwen's hearts block
Gwen started this quilt a few years ago and has been busy this year getting a few WIP's completed. There will some more photos of Gwen's quilts coming up soon.











A simple wavy line was quilted in the sashing using Invisifil thread

Leslie's niece saw this quilt in a magazine after a quilt gift was offered and said she liked it exactly how it was.  A few internet orders later and Leslie was piecing circles and squares with great speed.

This quilt now resides in the US after the binding was completed and it took up a fair bit of luggage space I'm sure, being a QS quilt.  Leslie was quite busy before her trip as she also completed a KS quilt for her parents and took it home to the US.

Bright Circles

Lilian made this bright quilt as a gift for a small person, I really like the wonky circles, they add movement to the quilt.
The quilting pattern I used is called Bayside and a variegated thread also adds some interest.









I've spent some time sorting photos so will add a few more very soon.  I have had to fight for some time on the computer. Holidays and 4 boys have dominated them for a bit. 

Happy Sewing
