Finishes for Friday

THIS!!! was a great week! Busy, but I finally got something accomplished!!

The most recent finish... hot off the frame last night. It was cooler in the basement, but it kept getting darker so I quilted faster and faster to beat the lightening storm. Got my machine all shut down and unplugged, and 5 minutes later... the hail came. Perfect timing ;-)

This was from the Monochromatic Color challenge that Judy at Patchworktimes.com hosted a few years ago.  This one is called Blindigo.   ( I combined two months - Blue and Indigo - brilliant right?)

 Hunh -I just went and looked - it's only from 2011... not too bad. (Don't laugh)






My son has helped me get a lot done - he even made me lunch yesterday so I could keep quilting. I am keeping him. Looks yummy !!


I also finished "Sticks"   This was a Scrapapalooza quilt from Cynthia Brunz 



And I finished my Wildlife top - I don't think this is too old, but I refuse to answer a date on the grounds that someone will take my chocolate!!  It was fun to quilt.


All of these were quilted with pantos. I am offering a special up in the top right corner. And I am loving it!! I forget how much I really love pantos, and how they add such texture to our quilts. Sometimes I get stuck on the idea that everything has to be show quilted, and I forget that really... it's doesn't have to be. The pantos are gorgeous, and they really do add to every quilt.  And they are FUN!!

Look at you GO! Impressive! Makes me feel like a sewing slug, but impressive. :) Lunch looks awesome! Will you rent him out?

The pattern of that first one looks like what Kevin is using for his QOV block drive. Great finishes there, girl. You sure get a LOT done!!! And what a sweet boy to fix you lunch. AWESOME!

Another great finish. You are definitely inspiring me to get some of my older tops finished. I think I only have 6 left!

Holy moly, you've been busy! I, too, love Blindigo. What a great name, and I love all the blues, set off by the whites.

Terri said...

Wow! You did get a lot done. Must be that lunch made by a son! Mom's need to eat, too.
Love the Blindigo - good pattern and colors for a guy.

Love the quilts- the curves of the quilting patterns look good against the right angles of the piecing. I like that someone else blogged their lunch too!
