Keeping Busy

I know I haven't been posting any quilt photos lately, so, just so you don't think I've been goofing off, here are some photos of quilts I've made to donate to a charity group.


I've been trying to reduce my stash, and improve my machine applique, so these projects were perfect.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. The sun is shining beautifully here, and the snow that hit us by surprise on Wednesday is starting to melt.
Bye for now.

Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments. Ina and Allie, yes they are my own designs. I thought all the curves would be good practice for the machine applique.

Dorothy,

Long time no chat.... I hope you are doing well. Your quilts look lovely.

I have been swamped for all the months this year. I have gone through a relocation and am still settling down in a new place. But I am definitely still quilting.

Hugs. Let me hear from you if you aren't too busy.

Just thought you'd like to know that I finished one of your donated tops -- It was too pretty for simple outlining!

Elizabeth, you did a fabulous job. It looks wonderful! Thank you for sharing your photo with me, and for quilting the top for the guild.
