After 3 months

After 3 months finished the top, finally I have already quilted this pink lap quilt.

I just love to see these squares quilt from the back.

Leftover Lime

I had some time in my sewing room yesterday evening and used up the black/white squares and some lime pieces. It measures 34" x 48"

I don't know whether it's "Music Between the Bars" or "Bars Between the Music"

I have no plan for it - just enjoyed the stitching.

Now I really mean no more black and white - I have a sundress to sew for Allison - pink flowers, at her request. Fun!!!

Lime Green Linda

I'm known as Lime Green Linda by my quilting friends. I have liked the color for many years - and now so many more people are using it!!!!
I took the picture on my clothes line in the back yard this morning.
The top is done. I sewed many of the blocks together while at Quilting By the Lake in April.
The blocks and borders were sewn together this week.
I am in no hurry to finish this, so it may stay unquilted for some time.

The black/whites are all "opposites" - you can see that in this picture and the next.

Block size is 8" square and there are 56 blocks in the quilt.
I have a black/white sateen that will go on the back. It has been in my stash for some time and needs to be used. It will feel good on the back!!!!

I'm busy working on a multi-colored wall quilt that can be seen on my blog -
Enough black/white for awhile!!!!

mom's finished quilt...

...just wanted to share mom's competed black and white challenge turned out well, didn't it?...:

...multiple borders...:

...and lots of loopy quilting done on her long arm...:

...guess this means i need to get my black and white quilt finished, huh?...drats! beat me to the finish line!...

"Moo and Blue"

I made this "Moo & Blue" blanket for my little boy, Ian.
Since he didn't allow me to cut the moo fabrics into pieces so I just add a small blue strip in the middle.

I think "straight line sewing" is the easiest way to quilt this blanket without walking foot or darning foot. I haven't had it yet :(

This is the back..
