Traci has been busy finishing quilts. She has three to share with us today.
“I am sending photos of four of the tops you sent me that I quilted. One is bound and ready to go to a local nursing home and the other three will go to Quilts for Kids; the organizer has a group that binds all the quilts that are donated. Sorry for the sunlight in some of the photos.
This top was in the first batch you sent me and was marked “from Sandra”. It came with a back but it was the exact size of the top which didn’t leave any extra to get it on the frame. So I used some fabric my mom gave me for the backing and used the backing fabric that came with it to do the binding. I quilted it in a pattern called French in the color linen thread.
For this next one, I used some flannel in my stash for the backing. I did a meander pattern in celery thread for the quilting. Love the I Spy in the Brick layout.
The next quilt is so cheerful with all the different fabrics and colors. I quilted it in a circle meander in celery thread. I used a flannel from my stash for the backing.
I did something a little different for this last quilt. I used fleece for the backing and did not use any batting. I love the resulting lightweight quilt which will be perfect in the warmer weather. I quilted it in Military Gold in a pattern called Ginko. You can really see the quilting on the back.
Thanks to all who pieced these tops!
I love all of these. I believe they were made by the Cresco Ladies. If not, please leave a comment and let us know it was you. All of these are scrappy and simple patterns but they do look so good…and Traci’s great quilting was really the icing on the cake!! Much thanks to everyone!!
