Small Quilts, Too!

Last week wasn't all big quilts. These were quilted and some even have the binding applied.

Barb made this cute giraffe quilt for a great grandchild.

The brown and black fabrics are minkee.  Popcorn panto and Omni Goose thread. The backing and binding are giraffe spotted fabric, how cute!

Look at all those squares sewn together. That was a lot of work! 

Vicci made this cute table runner.

Pink Paisley quilting, which you can hardly see. I got some practice on binding 60 degree corners.

 Here's the backing with a little better image of the quilting.

 Judy made this quilt for a nephew's baby. She wanted some special quilting as it would be a keeper in the family.
 I quilted 1/4" from the edge of the star, using a ruler, Terry Twists with a feather in the 4-patches, and meander in the background.

 I saw Judy at the One Stop Shop Hop in Kokomo last Saturday and only had a little photo to show her, so I 'm excited to show her the entire quilt.

Here is Carla's cute books wall hanging. It's only about 30" square and I used a new Fireworks panto for the quilting and Glide Silver thread.

How cute is the coloring on this one!

Big Quilts Week

This has been the week for big quilts at Ruthie's Quilting.

The first one was 114 x 104 and made by Carolyn. It's a Storm at Sea quilt for her daughter Andrea who is getting married next month.

We chose edge-to-edge feathers and I think it's beautiful! What a lovely wedding gift for a daughter.

Bountiful Feathers panto with a light tan thread.

The next one was 104 x 97 and made by Pam.

Beautiful fabrics were used to make this stunning quilt.

Pam chose Tea Rose panto and Sandlewood Omni thread.

Barb's Giraffe Quilt

Barb is a member of my Blue Star Mothers group and she isn't really a quilter, but she made this adorable quilt for a grandchild.

She followed the pattern, cutting and sewing all these background squares together. I might have sewn strips instead of squares, but the final effect of her quilt is adorable!

I quilted it with Popcorn Panto, Maize Omni thread and Hobbs 80/20 batting.
