Quick Post with two Fabulous Quilts!!

Quick post today got tons of stuff going on!! These quilts have just been returned home and they are absolutely FABULOUS!!  Love them both!!

Most of you know Laurie from her blog West Texas Threads.  You will find tons of great pictures from the Texas area, some quilting and hand stitching.  She's a doll mosey over to her blog for some fun reading.  Anyway, on to her quilt!!  It's a very modern baby quilt with all of the latest colors and fabrics trimmed in a Kona white color.  What sets her quilt off as being different she wanted batting WITH her fleece backing...new one for me.  You would not believe how wonderful this quilt ended up being with all that fluffiness!  It was amazing!! Don't forget to click on the pics for a closer look!! I went with a very light delicate quilting design, here's a picture.....


Here's another perfect quilt from Brandy!  Traditional design with great colors! It is always a pleasure to work on one of Brandy's quilts.  This one was made for her grandmother, how great is that?!?


I got a new toy and here's what I've been playing with in my spare time (because I have so much of it!! lol!!)



Okay, that's it for today!!  As always more pics of these fabulous quilts on the other blog and here's the link:


I'll be back soon I've got a couple of great quilts from Aunt Mil.  One has a ton of attitude, it was so much fun to have around.

Have a great weekend!!
thanks for checking on me,
hugs,

Beautiful quilts...I especially like the stars!

Have fun with your new toy! I've been thinking lately that it would be nice to have a "little" embroidery machine just for labels and such. Maybe someday...
