More quilts

Been quilting a lot and not posting much but I'm here today.

Here's one I did for Roxanna.
A great rooster wall hanging that turned out looking like trapunto because when it came time to quilt the background, I couldn't do anything but outline the chicken wire.  That mashed it down and popped up the rooster:

Here's the back:

Another one for Roxanna, the 4th deer friends quilt I've done for her!!
You can see my dear friend in this picture:

Here is the close up of Santa's beard, I made it curly this time:

This is one I did for Diane who had all her friends do one of the dolls.
She gave them the background fabric and pattern and they provided the fabric for the dresses and the aprons.
I hope you can see all the different lacy fabric they used.

Here you can see the heart meander on the blue background and some of the design I did on the pink.
It is like a cursive capital L, only with hearts instead of loops.

Here's a closer view of the design on the pink:

I did 2 other baby quilts yesterday but forgot to photograph them.
Oh well!

Happy Quilting!

Another Good Day

I had another good day of quilting today and had my first entry into the swimming pool for the year.
With the problems I've been having with my shoulders, I've been wondering if my treading water regime would be doable this year.
But I did just fine, the movement I do for treading water caused no pain what so ever, so it should be good for building up the muscles in the rotator cuff, thus strengthening and helping my situation.
The water is still just a little bit chilly. 
Oh, (this is embare-assing) when I did a butt check on my swim suit before I put it on and I could watch TV  through the suit before it was even stretched!
That means, my swimming friends totally failed me last year.
We had more than sun shinning at the pool!

Here's the first quilt I did Friday for Beverly:

A close up of the back shows the flowers and the whirligigs:

This is the one I did for Arthene,
a little Christmas in June.
I really love the fabrics and the pattern she chose.

Here's a closeup of the quilting:

And I love the pieced back:

Happy Quilting!

Quilting In the Middle of the Night

You might have noticed I have been absent yet again!
I finished another round of IVIG infusions for Myasthenia Gravis and after a week of recovery I'm finally quilting worthy.
In fact I woke up at 1:30 am today, looked at the clock and wondered if it was too early to quilt.
For the last 2 weeks even thinking about quilting made me tired, so I knew I was ready, but I opted for more sleep.
However sleep would not come, so at 3:00am I got up and started in.
I managed to get a baby quilt and a throw done today, and I'm not pooped;.
Doin' the happy dance here!!!!

These pics are not the ones I did today though.
I was sooo pooped the last 2 weeks I couldn't get these posted.

These first 2 I did for Sue
This is a really cute "I Spy esque" quilt:

Every square has a different pic and here in the close up you can see the quilting:

And this shows how the quilting looks on the back:

This is a good and quick idea for a baby quilt when you have some really cute fabric you don't want to cut up:

This one I did for Deb:

You can see the quilting a little better here:

Happy Quilting!!
