Oliver's orange quilt finished.

I can't beleive I finished this quilt top all the way back in July 2010. I sandwiched it in September then put aside and only just got myself motivated to quilt the darn thing!!Single bed size, it's been quilted across the width quarter inch apart lines, took forever, mostly quilted over the Easter long weekend and then a few more nights midweek. I used one and a half spools of orange, 13 bobbins went into the quilting alone.
Oh well, he loves it as do I, some of my fave prints are in this quilt. Will I quilt another one like this? Not on your nelly, mind you the quilting does look fantastic so never say never!

Christmas Quilt finished

It's a tad odd that my first quilt finish for 2011, is a Christmas Quilt. Simple and cute, bright and Christmassy, I love it. Perfect to just hang over the back of the couch."It looks like Clown Vomit" said Stuart. Brilliant, just the affect I was going for, not!Quilted in a simple straight stitch from one side to the other, some of the stitches cross over one another. Backing in retro santas and red spot, love!!
