Look What I Found
The Caroling Trio, just needed a few hand quilting stitches, and binding. It measures 8 1/2" x 10 3/4". This is part of a novelty print I've used over the years for AAQI quilts---great for Christmas and/or Winter decor.
Love Among Confusion, this little quilt is made from silks. The background is made from various silks that I pieced, cut apart and then pieced again into a crazy maze. The heart is from a piece of light weight upholstery fabric and appliqued on the crazy maze. The border is a silk in a corresponding solid. I hand quilted around the border, machine quilted with a metallic tread in a meandering stitch. Then just folded over the edges and top stitched for the binding. This one was easy to finish, as I had completed the top and the hand quilting, so the work was on the machine. It measures 9 x 10 1/2". Now I have a total of 8 quilts going in my final shipment to AAQI--my total quilts donated will be 112. Have a wonderful Wednesday--I'm going to work in the yard today, before the next round of rain hits our area tomorrow. Happy Quilting!
