Finished up this little guy last night - but waited 'til this morning to get a better photo. It was called the Small Endearment Quilt, and it's only 15" x 21½". The brown fabric is that fabric that has the antiqued/distressed look to it - so that's why it has the color variations. It's a reproduction of a late 19th. century quilt. I kept the quilting simple - just diagonal lines in an medium brown thread.
It’s a bittersweet feeling finishing up some of the quilts that I got from Good Wives Co. in Marion, Ohio. They are preparing to close their doors forever – which is so very sad.

Finished up this X Marks The Spot wall hanging tonight …
… it measures about 19½” square. Here are a couple of pictures of the quilting …
I used a pattern from urbanelementz.com for the quilting. I used a variegated LAVA thread from Superior Threads to do the quilting. The Moda kit (from fatquartershop.com) was a Christmas present from my Mom back in 2009. I pieced it in January of 2010, and it’s been waiting to be quilted since then.

Finished up this wall hanging last night.
The blue prints were from an older Moda line called Heart & Soul. The white is a white print with white holly leaves printed on it. I used Superior Threads LAVA in a variegated blue as the thread for the corner quilting.

Finally had a chance to work on block one for the Aurifil BOM 2014. I’m doing this BOM in turquoise prints with a very modern white print as the background. I love turquoise and it is my birthstone – so I’ve collected a few turquoise prints over the years. Now I’m using them!!
