its not a quilt until it's quilted #2


Another little finish this weekend - my 'landslide' quilt
This was a great low-stress project for me, simple in both design & stitching.
And the fabrics are just so calming with all those scrappy neutrals



I had it professionally quilted in an edge to edge freehand 'continous 8' pattern
by Leeanne from 'quiltmekiwi'.















I've finally started to enjoy this part of the 'quiltmaking process'
hand stitching the binding down is such a lovely way to appreciate all the fabrics, all over again

I also had time this weekend to stitch down the binding on my 'values' quilt
so I made the most of a lovely spring day and got a little snap happy










Two more scrappy patchwork throws to add to the collection
- just until they find new homes of course

Linking up with Cynthia for 'oh scrap' here
and with Michelle for a new linky party 'brag about your beauties' here at frombolttobeauty

  5. Both of your recent finishes are favorites of mine! You have such a way with low volumes and then that pop of red here and there. Beautiful!

  14. To look at a scrappy quilt is always a most wonderful thing. Two lovely finishes. Love the binding on your Landslide quilt; the black and white stripe is perfect. How lovely, a scrappy quilt collection. Perhaps you could live with these two pretties for a very long while.

  18. Hi Linda! Two lovely finishes to share. I just love all the scrappiness of the first one with its stripped binding. But the second one - that quilting is just fabulous! Holy moly. That is just stunning - I'm going to PIN that for the future. That's actually a good giggle, to think I could ever stitch something even close to that. Ahh, but to dream. ~smile~ Roseanne
