Lots of Finishes


I hope everyone had a great week. I didn't have as much sewing time I would have liked but hopefully that will change next weekend. I finally managed to take pictures of all the finishes I have had the last month. Here they are.................................................................................................

I made three of these little mini's from the Klosjes I have made.

Here is my "Witches Boot".
Closeups of the quilting.

Here is the backing that Nancy gave me to use. I think the pumpkins look like they glow.
This is "Cracked Pots"
Closeups of the quilting.
Its a pretty all over swirly design. I love it!
This is "Vintage Valentine"
She did an all over with a heart pantograph and used feathers for the border.
Each heart was quilting different. I really love how this turned out.
This is a little mini that I made. I just love red/white quilts.
This is a cute, fun and fast project I actually put together in an afternoon. I bought the kit here. I think it would make a great gift. I'm not sure I can part with mine though. LOL
Look at the cute pink candy canes quilted on it.
I will finish this post with my second to last Kitchen Caper block. I look forward to getting the last installment of this so I can put them all together. I want to hang this up in the kitchen this spring.
I almost forgot to mention the book I won over at Janet's blog. The book is even signed by the author. It's a great book that has a ton of great scrap busting patterns. I will be collecting the author's other books soon.
Thank you all for visiting me this week.

I've been so bad at blogging that I haven't read barely a thing, but I'm so happy that I saw this post. I don't even know where to begin!!! I love everything, but especially the Valentine quilt. You do some really wonderful work.

WOW you've been busy. I love everything. MY Christmas package quilt is still on the machine waiting on me to quilt it. I finished Nancy's and my sisters. Now for mine. I love the red and white little quilt. But then I love all of them.

I was going to say Cracked Pots was my favorite until I saw Vintage Valentine - they are all so beautiful. I am in awe of your talent.

My head is spinning with all of your finishes. You must be feeling pretty good about now! They are all wonderful, but I'm with Karen--Cracked Pots (interesting name) and Vintage Valentines really speak to me. Who does your quilting? They do a beautiful job!
Glad you like the book you won--Lynn has some great scrap quilt ideas!

Joy said...

Lots of beautiful finishes!! Seems like you are whipping through those UFOs - Bravo!!

Have a stitch filled and hopefully blessedly short week!!

Barbara said...

Lovely work, Yvette! I think the Valentine quilt is absolutely stunning! And I agree entirely about the attraction of red/white (for me blue/white also). You are so productive...

Fiesta said...

OMG Yvette, what lovely, lovely finishes!!!! Your Vintage Valentine is breathtaking. Congratulations!!!

ranette said...

I agree with everyone else Yvette...beautiful work! Oh and the quilting looks amazing!
I'm impressed that you got the binding work done so quickly. I really must come take lessons on how you work so fast.

The striped binding looks great on Cracked Pots...always love a striped binding!

You didn't tell me you were making mini's with your Klosjes....they are wonderful! I don't think I've even made enough to make a mini....lol

All your work is just gorgeous! I still don't know how you get so much finished?? I always tease about giving up sleeping but I think that's what you have done. I know you work and commute and text and email and blog and and and so when are you doing all this beautiful quilting, stitching, binding and now cross-stitch. Yes everyone she is now cross-stitching.

Colleen said...

They are all wonderful, but I especially loved the Vintage Valentine's Day quilt! Lots of hard work, and some really impressive finishes!

I could get bitten by the "bug". Such pretty quilts. They made me smile today. Thanks.

Your quilts are beautiful. Your Vintage Valentine looks GREAT. I think I have had that one for a few years and I am still on block 2. You inspire to bring it out and sew on it.
