More Quilts

On a cool day,I sometimes pull this quilt from the stair railing for a snuggly nap on the couch.

I thought I’d put in a couple more of my quilts. The “Flying Geese” is the only quilt that I actually use, except for the wall-hangings. I have another top of exactly the same pattern in greens that I’ve made and need to layer it and pin it together so that I can quilt it. I machine-quilted this one on my Brother 1500S. It was all straight lines, stitch-in-the-ditch, but now that I’ve used it for awhile, it has all fluffed up and feels just as good as a hand-quilted one.

I still love the look of this little purple basket quilt, which measures 23" X 30".  The design for this little quilt comes from Gai Perry's book, "Color from the Heart," one of my favorite quilting books, one which I have used and reused over the years.

The smaller one (sorry about the definition of the photo) I made for a colleague for her to put up in her newly remodeled bathroom. It was a fun little quilt to do, all hand-quilted.

I’ve made some kind of quilt, mostly wall-hanging type, for quite a few of the people at work–all women. Most all of them would have trouble even threading a sewing machine. I guess even back in the day, city girls didn’t have much to do with Home Ec. 🙂
