November

November brought another round of stunning quilts. 


Here's a couple of projects from Shirley in NH.  First up is a table runner in purples and greens, it was a great finish!  Her second project is a beautiful quilt in blues and yellows.  She wanted a modern feather design and this one from My Creative Stitches was just perfect!





All worked up in shades of purples and greens is this cool modern quilt from Dianne.  The overall design and colors remind me of those mod fabrics from the 60's.  Just proving all that is old is new again!



Janet probably got the "Grammy of the year" award from her grandson Ryan!  How super amazing is this quilt she made for him?  Janet machine appliqued all of the super hero emblems along with Ryan's name on his quilt.  Adding minky as the backing and a light batting resulted in the most perfect Christmas present ever for her little guy!  Great job, Janet!!



Here's a couple of quilts from Jo.  The first a variety of circles in colors to represent all of the colors you will see when looking into the Northern Lights.  Jo, who has had the opportunity to witness the beauty of the Northern Lights with her husband made this quilt in his memory.  This amazing quilt is a true work of art, I can see the full moon and it's transformation into it's different phases. Jo selected a whimsical star design for the quilting finishing it off magnificently.  Her second quilt is a cute little quilt in fun colors and lots of fun prints. 





Cheona did an excellent job on this great wall hanging!  The fading of the tans mixing with the lighter inner bordering fabrics was spot on!  Also notice the way she used the scrappy crazy quilting on the center of the piece, it was a superb way to bring all of the colors together! Can't move on without commenting on the quilting design, it matched perfectly!



Donna finished off this magnificent quilt for her son for Christmas!   Fabrics are soft flannels and the most perfect colors for a man's quilt.  We selected a modern square-ish quilting design and it was just the right touch to finish this one off just right!



Here's another marvelous quilt from Dorothy in WA.  The pinks, greens and reds of this kit blend together beautifully for a remarkable finished quilt.  Using a larger quilting design for the stitching was an excellent choice.  Dorothy in efforts to keep her leftovers under control also made a couple of table toppers.  Good job Dorothy!





WOW! WOW! WOW!  I just love this next quilt from Michele!!   An incredible bargello in shades of blues, grays and black with a hint of purple to bring it all together.  Michele's second quilt is a stack-n-whack that creates a amazing array of interesting blocks from the original fabric.





Another quilt that was under the tree this year was this superb quilt from Wendy in IN.  Made for her son this super huge quilt I'm sure will be treasured for many years to come.  Another perfect quilt for a young man!  We decided upon a geometric quilting design finishing it off beautifully.



Up next is a couple of quilts from Andrea here in NH.  Both of these are excellent patterns to show off a beautiful fabric that you just can't cut.  Love the larger solid blocks blended with the few pieced blocks.  Keeping the quilting light will make these more huggable than ever!





Barbara and Sandy finished off a Kaffe Fassett quilt last year and needed a bed runner to go with those quilts.  Here's their runners and Barbara also had me quilt up shams to match.  Couldn't see much of the quilting on the runners, but the sham shows the beautiful modern quilting design that goes amazingly with the Fassett fabrics.






Last quilt of the month is this t-shirt quilt from Jill in NH. Lots of fun shirts and bright colors in this one.  Finished off with a ultra modern quilting design and the fuzzy fleece backing was spot on for this one!



That wraps up the month of November!  I'll be back again very soon with December's finishes, so check back soon!

October Quilts are here!

Still catching up with the blogging!  Here's what the month of October
 brought my way.

Here's a great guy quilt from Beth Ann which was under the tree this year.  Working ahead of time Beth Ann made this camping themed quilt for her husband.  With minky as the backing this is going to see a lot of lovin!



Darsie did a fantastic job on this Storm at Sea quilt!  It was made as a gift for a very special friend who loved boating.  Darsie's choice of colors were excellent and the swirly/wavy design that she selected finished the quilt off beautifully!



Up next is a super scrappy quilt from Deb.  This quilt was constructed using scraps from fabrics that were gifted to her from a friend.  The finished quilt will hold great memories of all the fantastic and fun fabrics from her friend.  Using a simple meander quilting design finished this one off wonderfully.



This was a gorgeous quilt!  The bright fabrics that reads as solids mixed with the white popped the blocks right off the quilt top!  Jane opted for a super modern quilting design sending this one right over the top! I've added this one to my bucket list!  Unfortunately I did not get a full shot of this beautiful quilt!



Another quilt that was under the tree this year is this terrific little quilt for one of Jane's grandsons.  Perfect color selection and the great design made this a great quilt for a guy and this quilt will remain wonderful for many years to come.   



JoAnn here in NH always brings me the most incredible quilt tops.  This one is completely hand stitched using all of the scraps of fabrics left over from all of her other magnificent quilts.  The designs in this quilt are truly mind boggling!  I see blocks with some of the fabrics and then a six pedal flower that repeats with a diamond between the design.  Everything about this one is spectacular!



Here's another wonderful, wonderful gift!  Julene made this super huge, super amazing quilt for her brother.  The gray tones are an excellent color selection for a guy quilt.  The overall design with the complex center and the simple borders finish this quilt off magnificently!  Julene also sent a couple of cute baby quilts and a beautiful blue that I just loved! 








Linda in IL finished off this quilt top using a superb collection of fabrics. The simple design is just perfect for this splendid quilt top.  We finished it off with a fun quilting design making it a quilt that will be love for years to come.



Here's another fabulous quilt from Michele.  This month it's a stack n' whack with so many pretty sub-designs using the fabrics.  If you look closely at the fabrics you will notice the huge variety of floral, fruits and vegetable prints.  The black sashing with the green corner stones sets this one perfectly.



Here's a couple of quilts from Sharon over in VT.  Beautiful Around the World pattern one in red, white and blue the second in shades of blue and greens.  Sharon color placement was spot on with both of these and the end result was the dazzling design.  We opted for a more modern quilting design and it was the perfect choice for a superb finish.





Susanne's first quilt is a collection of fabrics she purchased while vacationing in Hawaii.  The bright and bold colors with the black background went together very well with the black sashing in this next quilt.  Her second piece is an adorable Halloween wall hanging that was super fun to stitch out.  





Here's another Susanne here in NH!  How wonderful is this great quilt with the burgundy, rose and brown shades of fabric!  I believe this quilt was a wedding gift for a young couple.  Susanne did a great job with the borders finishing this quilt off with a different twist.



Suzi is back again this month with another retirement quilt.  Beautiful batiks in rich jewel tones with leaves makes this a splendid quilt for someone living in New Hampshire.  Overall, this is an exceptional quilt and gift, great job Suzi!



That's it for October!!  November photos are finished and just about ready to go!  Check back soon!  In the mean time as always you can see more photos of these great quilts at the other blog, here's the link:
