Quilting

I quilted two quilts pieced by my friend Sally. This first quilt has different blocks pieced by several quilt shops. The fabric is the new Fall line for Three Sisters by Moda coming out in October. Sally designed the layout herself. The quilt will be displayed at the October Houston Quilt Market.
The border is so interesting.
This batik quilt was a group project. Quilters made half square triangles and shared with each other. This is how Sally turned her triangles into a quilt.
I used the Bubbles panto...I love to quilt circles or swirls.
Batik border.
Scrappy batik backing.
Happy Quilting!
Here's a little reminder: I'm thinking of having a one day giveaway for my Fall quilt on Wednesday. I was too late to enter my blog in the Fall give away.

Totally awesome quilts, both the tops and the quilting! I can only do the tops... I would never be able to do the quilting! For a start I'd need a quilting machine eh? lol

The quilts look great! I love how the quilting brings texture to the quilts, while the piecing brings out the colours. Wonderful!
