Some Quilting Finishes!!!

At long last, I have some quilting finishes! They are all small projects but they are done!

A while back I made a couple of small table mats. I guess I didn't post about them! Must have been too busy with the remodel...

All of these are done with red batiks and cream colored batiks. I backed each with a neutral colored batik and used Aurifil thread for the quilting.

This is one of the disappearing windmill patterns quilted with Paisley.

The next one is one of the disappearing hour glass patterns. I also quilted it with the Paisley.

In the past week, I have finished the other three table mats/runners for our family room.

I made this one like a chevron going in two directions. Each strip is quilted as if it were a border. This is my 'entry' in the March FMQ Challenge - you can see more photos and learn more here.



The Irish Chain  is quilted with feathers. I had a few places to fill in so I used small circles/stones.



The last runner is much larger - it is for a behind-the-sofa table. It is quilted with an all over pattern with flower petals that are echoed.



All of the mats/runners are in use!

 

 























It's so nice to have some cohesiveness in the room. And it's even better to have found time to quilt!

  1. It's great that you finally had time to do some quilting. And I must say that they are all really pretty! I might just have to do something like that in our new place to make the place feel put together! Great idea Jeanne!!
