The First Two Quilts of the Year!

Despite the fact that I'm no great photographer (although I am in my head...) and that we just got a new camera, these photos are from the old camera.  That's all I'll say.  On to the quilting.

My husband works with someone who is pregnant with twins.  I have a soft spot for these ladies, I tell you.  So, I searched through my stash, wanting to stick with blues and greys as they are both boys.  I wanted them to be similar but not the same.

One is free motion quilted with a cheater binding (thank you Rae) and the other is done with straight line quilting - which I always expect to be easier than it is...  I think I have some things to learn here - either about speed (I really like going fast) or about basting (a pucker or two...).

There is nothing like taking a quilt out of the dryer and gazing at all it's crinkly glory.  I LOVE that!  I'm pretty pleased with how they came out.  My first quilt finish of the year x2!!

  1. Congrats on your two finishes, Beth! Doesn't it feel good? You'll get the hang of the straight line quilting before you know it.
