some finishes of late

I finally have some finishes to show. This quilt top was one of the first I ever made. In fact, it was done so many years ago that I even sashed it in really cheap fabric.

When I got it out this summer to quilt, the fabric bothered me so bad that I picked the whole thing out and ...

...resashed it with an excellent quality batik blue. The binding is attached by machine but still needs to be hand-done on the other side.

Jessi's has been done for several years and is hand quilted. I made both the girls quilts out of scraps that were given to me and some leftovers from a couple of quilts I had made.

This is my last orphan quilt. I won it my first year at Annual Meeting and finally added a border and quilted it. It is kind of cute for a poor little orphan, don't you think? I bought the border fabric and backing at a yard sale. It was fabric that was meant to be used for little girl's dresses.

This is Felicity's little witch quilt she completed at our Fall Retreat. She paid me to quilt it and make/attach the binding. She will finish up the hand work. I love her colors!

Here is the first of FOUR Halloween quilts I'd like to get done this month. This one is Jolynn's. I even made a little pillowcase for her to store it in while she goes on bus trips. It is a buggy barn pattern. I mixed the witches and cats because I liked them both. I borrowed the broom border pattern from a pattern Becky bought at our Fall Retreat.

Here are some close-ups of the quilting.

Justin's is ready to quilt and mine and Jessi's still need to be assembled but the blocks are pretty much done.
