Memorial Weekend Quilting

Saturday was the quilting day of the weekend and I finished Carole's Kaffe Diamonds using the Damask Rose pantograph by Keryn Emmerson, Permacore L. Strawberry and Warm & Natural batting. It turned out really nice, but I just realized that don't have a shot of the entire quilt.





The next one was a guild mystery quilt and I used Spiral Square pantograph This was one of my prizes from Judy's blog contest. I'm so glad I entered and won, because I love how this turned out. I used Permacore White and Warm & Natural batting. The backing is white flannel, which should make it a snuggly little baby quilt.





Then I quilted the happy squares quilt with Terry Twists in the blocks and a simple meander in the border. Permacore White and a Warm & Natural batting scrap. So I'm not only using up my fabric stash, but my batting stash as well.




And last but certainly not least, I loaded and started quilting my March challenge quilt. I used another new pantograph, Jacobean, Permacore black thread and Hobbs 80/20 batting. I am so glad that I went with a panto for this one. I thought about doing some custom and actually started to do some freehand feathers it the first border, but ripped them out and went with the panto. I finished this one on Sunday.

Ruthie, They all look great. I don't know how you get so much done. If I get one a day quilted I am doing good. Carol

After seeing your "sprial square" panto quilted on a quilt, I bought one for myself and used it on a quilt this past weekend. I absolutely loved how the quilt turned out. Thanks so much!

Carole's daughter, Krissy loved the Diamond Kaffee Fassett quilt that you used the Jacobean pattern on. It was for her birthday.
You did good!
