sneak peak

I haven't been posting lately but a whole lot of sewing has been going on.  Next Tuesday I need to deliver the 2 quilts I have entered to be in the annual outdoor quilt show.  Ask me if they are finished yet?  :0)   These are the two quilts.  I have every expectation that they will be finished in time.
 Last night I quilted the year and my initials into my Corn and Beans quilt.  It`s a bit hard to see in the hst`s but it`s there as a surprise for anyone who looks closely.

This quilt I have been machine quilting.  It`s a big heavy monster and I can`t wait to be finished.  DD2 has been patiently waiting for months for this to be done.  On Mother`s Day I found a few hours to do the free motion feathers I wanted in the border.  They don`t show up too well either as the border print is busy but, I know they`re there  :0)
I should be back next week with 2 finishes!
Happy Quilting!!

I love the idea of quilting in the year and initials into a quilt, so simple, wonder why I don't think of these great ideas.

Annette said...

I can see it. What a clever idea. My favorite quilts are scrappy quilts and I love yours!

Cheri said...

An outdoor quilt show sounds fun. Your quilts are so pretty and scrappy looking.

Jan said...

Both of these quilts are scrappy fun. Love to see that hand quilting; it's beautiful.

beautiful wow two wonderful finishes. I love doing things like that too, finding surprises in quilts when you really study them is fun. I am starting to hand quilt more and wanting to put my initials in more of my quilts and the date too.
glad you did this
btw your feather border looks wonderful I can see it!

Janet said...

Your quilts are wonderful and I love the date and initials you put in. I'll be filing that idea away. Good luck with the finishing off.

Emma said...

They look great. Congrats on getting them done in time. :)
Can't wait to see them in the show.

Your quilting details are wonderful. I love to find quilted letters and dates.
Your LC is just fantastic! Your feathers are beautiful

I love quilting in initials and things like that, as a reward for those who study it - it's fun! Both your quilts look lovely!
