This year I have completed 11 quilts. I would have done 12, but one of my long arm appointments got cancelled. Ah well.
Here are quilts 9, 10, and 11!
This is a quilt I did for a ministry. It will go to a woman who has a baby and gets help through the Crisis Pregnancy Center in Lewisville, TX. This was a quilt from heck! I also call it the quilt of doom. Why?
Well, someone donated a sheet to be used in the fabric bin we have for FaithWorks (the name of the ministry) that I used for the backing and binding. It didn't want to lay right. It kept moving, refused to lay flat...oh man it was terrible! I don't know if the bias was off or what, but I hated working with it. I was extremely glad when I finished this quilt.
My aunt in law got this quilt as a Christmas gift. My father in law is standing on the left, my husband on the right. This was a 'Swedish Mystery Quilt" that I purchased back in March, I think.
I like the blue better than the yellow. :)
This is the back of the quilt. This is the second quilt that I've ever done on a long arm machine.
Our neighbors to the east of us have been wonderful friends to us. They have really ministered to us ever since we moved into our house. I wanted to do something for them, so I made this quilt.
This pattern is called a 'french braid'.
This was the first quilt I ever did on a long arm quilting machine. I wish I could afford one of my own!
