Worked on quilting my Candy Coated quilt today. I loaded the quilt on Saturday and so when I got down to my studio, I was ready to begin on Sunday afternoon.
Here’s the quilt draped on the frame. (before the binding was turned and stitched down) I used a simple geometric design that I created in Art & Stitch.
Here’s a different camera angle with the light hitting it just right – making it easier to see the stitching.
While watching TV on Sunday evening, I finished the binding.

Finished up the piecing on my Candy Coated quilt top. Work on this had kind of stalled while I decided exactly how big I wanted to make it. It’s a modern quilt, but I did it in reproduction fabrics. The colors are mostly purples, blues and creams. I decided to make it about 40” x 60”.
I loaded one of the mystery quilts that I did a few months ago onto the longarm this week too. Lots of continuous curve ruler work, and some fun flowers with the Pro-Stitcher.

Guess I haven’t posted any pictures of this quilt yet … It started out as a disappearing 4-patch kit from a store in Georgia called Little Quilts and I added a couple of borders using fabrics that I had in my stash. It’s a strange combination of colors, but it really works for some reason.
The quilting design is a pattern called Rhapsody from urbanelementz.com. They have some of my FAVORITE designs.

I’m a couple of weeks behind in getting this mystery quilt top put together. As you can tell – it’s scrappy! (done in Civil War repros) The pattern is from the mystery quilt done by the Just Us Quilters group on Facebook.
A new mystery quilt is getting ready to start on that group – so if you’re interested, look up the Just Us Quilters group on Facebook and click to join.

I found the pattern for this on-line at a blog, and decided to make it for Mom as part of her Mother’s Day present.
I used a couple of fat quarters that I had in my stash, and some thin Warm & White batting. All I had to do is buy the D-rings. I quilted the fabric with concentric squares.

My doll quilt swap partner sent my little doll quilt and it arrived from Maryland yesterday!
What a cute little quilt. Taryn told me that it was machine quilted and hand quilted.
I should probably show some photos of the one that I made for my swap partner … I sent mine off on April 9th. My partner Martha lived in Washington state.
