So onto the weekend!!! I spent a good part of this weekend, quilting and then quilting some more!!! Remember those fun metallic pops from Zen Chic's Modern Luster Background I shared back here, well, that quilt top got finished up and was the first to go on the Long Arm this weekend :) I opted for some fun open center swirls like I did on this quilt. This is the second time I used this twist on the swirl and I am just loving it!!! And now all I have to do is get the binding on this quilt and I will be sharing the finish this Friday!!!
Next, the Joel Dewberry Florabelle quilt went on the Long Arm. I was just so happy with how the blocks from here went together in such a pretty quilt top that I decided to do some of my favorite feathered swirls for the quilting which I just thought would add to the beautiful prints!!! These are always fun to quilt and I love the wonderful movement they give the quilt :) Again, time to bind this one and I will be sharing it at the first of October and it is going to come with a Tutorial as well!!!
And finally, I squeaked in one last quilt ;) Remember my Baby Petal Pop from National Sew a Jelly Roll day . . . It's all quilted and I am so super excited!!! I kept the quilting pretty small on this one and am just so loving all of the wonderful texture it gives the background :) I used all of my favorites to fill in the background and then I even tried some feathers (which still make me a little nervous) in the Petals. Eeekk, so fun, I really need to get this one bound fast because I can't wait to share it all finished ;)
So ya, it was a ton of quilting this weekend and the funny thing is . . . that was only half of the quilt tops that I was hoping to get done. (Ya, it was probably a little unrealistic to think I could quilt 6 tops in a weekend ;) I still have my second National Jelly Roll Day quilt top, the Jelly Roll Slice to quilt up. I think I want to quilt an all over curl, but haven't for sure decided on that yet ;)
And then there is the Chuckles quilt top that I finished back here. I decided on a cute simple wave design that I think will be so adorable with the fishes.
And finally, remember that Square Dance pattern that I decided to do at the end of National Sew a Jelly Roll Day . . . well, I took the fabrics with me this week to Layton Utah where I was teaching at the Utah Quilt Guild Retreat, and when I wasn't teaching, I was sewing away in my room. And yippee, I managed to finish the quilt top. So one more to be quilted right ;)
Luckily, all three of these are baby size so they should go pretty quick once I get them on the Long Arm :) So here's hoping lots of finishes to share soon!!! I best get back to quilting :)
I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!
