The last of the finishes



I finally finished binding all of my quilted tops.  The first one is a little twister wall hanging I made a few weeks ago while I was quilting with friends.  One of my friends was making this same quilt and she had some extra squares left over that she gave me.  
                                            The quilting matches the flowers on the border.  
 This is another wall hanging I finished recently.  It is from Primitive Gatherings.  I changed the pieced blocks because the one in the pattern called for a zillion tiny pieces in a 5" block.  I honestly tried to make the blocks but they just kept coming out terrible and I was about to throw the quilt out of the window.  LOL  I changed the block and am much happier with the result.
 The next is a lap sized quilt that I made in an afternoon.  It took me longer to bind it than piece it.  LOL  I wanted this to hang over my couch in the summer.
 The quilting is very patriotic too, it has swirls and stars.
 The last one I have to show you is my favorite.  It is called "Farm Fresh".   I really love how this came out.   I took several close up pictures to show you all the quilting.  I think it turned out great!



                                               My initials are even put on the shovel.



                                               I just love all the detail my quilter (and friend) put in this.
Well, that's it for the finishes.  I am going to try to get back to showing my weekly progress on current projects next week.  

Have a blessed week!
Yvette

Oh Yvette...what amazing finishes...between hyperventilating and drooling I'm trying to type...Love them all, but your Farm Fresh is beyond wonderful. I love what you did with the Christmas one...those pieced blocks were really what put me off from doing that quilt...LOVE yours!

Love all your quilts but especially Farm Fresh! I'm almost finished with mine. Did you do the quilting yourself or have someone else do it? I'll have to send mine off but don't have a clue who to send it too!!

So many wonderful finishes, Yvette! Your quilter friend does a lovely job of choosing appropriate quilting designs.
Farm Fresh is so fun. It has been hanging in a local quilt shop and I have admired it, but the quilting on yours is extra nice!

Barbara said...

An awful lot of work has gone into that; it's lovely, Yvonne, and the quilting, particularly the crosshatch on the pumpkins, is really effective.
