DD1 wanted to give a baby quilt to friend that had a girl in May so I made this for her. I used happy blocks from Mary's tutorial. Fast and fun to make and they make a beautiful quilt.
A quilting detail.
I finished this quilt in the end of Marsh and mailed it to Japan in early April. I used more than half of the blocks I'd made for the Virginia Bound quilt from Bonnie Hunter's book, Scrap and Shirttail (I think I remember this right) I named the quilt Japan Bound.
This quilt, a mystery named Circle of Friends, from a Yahoo group I'm in is a birthday present to my older brother who lives in Denmark. He will turn 50 in two days and I hope the quilt will have reached him then. I quilted this in early June.
The back is a part of curtains I got at Good Will. They are very soft and I got seven pieces that will most likely be enough for the back on six quilts. I made Japan Bound also with this backing and I love how it turns out.
In May I quilted this quilt for a dear friend of the family who was graduating from college. This is Dinah's Delight, a mystery from Iowa Star Quilts. I added the four patches on top after I made the quilt to short when I decided all those green borders were just to much, and cut most of them away. A decision I regretted because I figured out after the deed that I'd only needed to cut some of the side borders to make me like it better.
I got me new glasses in May and have since then finished hand sewing the binding on the back of both my California Christmas (mystery from Bonnie Hunter) quilts. It's great to be finally able to to hand work while watching TV. I quilted those two quilts last winter.
This is the Christmas Star part who belongs to hubby now. The blocks are 16 " and there was one left that I later used as a center in an international Round Robin I'm in. My center is now in Japan at it's last stop.
Back of Christmas Star, I think I quilted it (the sashings) a bit to much.
The Poinsettia part has not gotten a home, it will in time, just not jet and I will say no more about it. Lol.
This is the back, I thought about quilting it some more, but then figured it would be an over kill. I like it best as it is.
My goodness, how very productive I appear when I post so seldom. LOL.
That's it for now.
