New Quilts

Here are some quilts that have been recently finished.  They will be available in my Etsy shop soon or at Maxwell's Made in America.  You can check them out at those sites in February.

Sawtooth Star

Butterfly Mystery Quilt

9 Patch

Snail's Trail

Just received the new quilt rack the other day.  It make it sooo easy to take pictures now.  Four more UFO projects finally completed!

Couldn't resist taking a picture of Easy Street on the new rack.  Now I can't decide if I really want to put on those borders or leave it as it is.  I do know that purple will be the binding however I do end up finishing this quilt.

It has been fun working on Easy Street. The first version is now complete. Thank you, Bonnie for providing the directions and a month's worth of enjoyable sewing.

Easy Street - Almost There!

I was assembling the rows for Easy Street and stopped for a break to check email and blogs. Imagine my surprise when I read Bonnie Hunter's latest blog where she says that the linky for Easy Street will close tonight! I thought I had two more days!

Hurry up and finish or do the post!

I chose doing the post.

Here it is.

Half on the design floor...

And half on the design bed...

Completed top tomorrow at the latest!

Easy Street has been a blast!

Here is the link to Bonnie's page where you can see blogs that show other Easy Street quilts that are being made.  Enjoy!

The completed top!

Living on Easy Street - Heading toward the finish

And working on it day by day!

My Easy Street #1 Quilt is still progressing.

Somehow the blocks seem to be multiplying! I do one block, paying attention to my piecing to make sure all seams match, then place it on my design floor. I look for the next block to piece, count what is left to do and it seems as if the number left to do does not decrease. I thought I could count to 25 but apparently not. LOL!!!

It does look nice and I am pleased with the fabric, colors and arrangement. Thank you Bonnie for another wonderful Mystery Quilt for 2012 - 2013.

One half done....

Hey, did you notice my shoes?
I guess that's why I love the colors Bonnie chose for Easy Street so much!

Just Back!

From being quilted....
Another top is finished and quilted. The binding merely remains to be finished. Quilted by one of the three long arm quilters I am now using, this is another of the Quilt of the Month's I started awhile ago and now have time to finish.

The quilt is called "Regal Splendor" and will be available on my Etsy site once I have photographed it properly and not merely by draping it over the loveseat.

Now back to "Easy Street".
