Spring Quilting

I am now three weeks without my computer. I miss reading my favorite quilting blogs and communicating with my blogging friends. With all the extra time per day, I got so much quilting done. I could do more housework, but that was definitely not on my list to do. 
I just finished the machine quilting on Willeeen's Scrappy quilt. This is such a pretty quilt and an excellent use of her scrapbasket. 
 This Scrappy quilt has a bleached muslin for the background and the backing.  Just beautiful!
 This is another Tulip Time quilt I quilted. This beauty was pieced by Cindy. All the appliqued flowers are so cheerful and so springy.  You can tell she is a purple girl.
 Cindy is going to use this quilt on her bed.  With all the lovely batiks she can use any color of decorations with this quilt.
  Cindy's mom is going to help her with the binding.  This quilt is huge, 106" long and the handsewing of the binding will take forever.
 This is a Spring panel I quilted for Marinel. There is absolutely no piecing in this quilt. Aren't panels great for those lazy non-sewing days?

 I am working on a t-shirt quilt for Shannon.  The quilt will have around 30 t-shirt blocks.  All the blocks are cut out and fused with fusible webbing.  For the next few days I will be working on sewing the t-shirt blocks together.
 Hope you all are enjoying Spring. 
 Happy quilting until next time,

Is the quilting on your scrappy quilt freehand or a panto? If a panto, what is it? I am always looking for fresh new pantos and I like that one.

Die scrappy kwilt is nogal oulik. Ek hou van die kwiltwerk wat jy daarop gedoen het - dit lyk so vrolik.
Die ander kwilt is ook mooi - lieflike materiaal wat gebruik is. En natuurlik die kwiltwerk is besonders.
Groete, Elzaan

Maybe I should step on my computer, think I would be able to quilt as good as you? Might be worth it.

Oh Millie, what a beautiful quilt and excellent quilting. I do so miss your posts. I know how frustrating it can be with computer issues. Those darn little mice just get stubborn sometimes. Wish I could do something to help. If you can think of anything, please let me know.
