Quilted Tops

 I have been busy quilting several quilt tops. This pink and brown quilt was pieced by Chari.
 In the picture below is she with her daughter Cecilea.

 The backing is the same pretty pink floral fabric that appears in some of the chains in the front of the quilt.
 I love purple quilts. Shirley's quilt has a chain going though all the blocks which I think is so pretty.

 This is Shirley's Bargello quilt. The black background makes all the colors pop.
 This quilt made me smile the entire time I was quilting it, the colors are so bright and cheerful. Betsy pieced this quilt for a teenager called Bailey. She made up the pattern as she was piecing the blocks together.


 I have quilted several of these Red Hunter Star quilts. This beauty was pieced by Glenda.  It is such a striking quilt.

 Scrappy backing.
 I have been working on several t-shirt quilts.  I pieced and quilted this one and will show several more t-shirt quilts the next time.
 Happy Quilting until next time,

Some lovely quilts. I love the first one, and have quilted one similar for a customer. I would like to make it, but piece the blocks smaller. It is on my very long to do list.....

Millie, these quilts are absolute beautiful. Spectacular quilting.

Sadly, I'll confess the Hunter's Star is still on my bucket list. Someday I hope to make a quilt with this design.

Inspirational post.

Wow! Millie, you've been super busy, but your work certainly is beautiful! Can't wait to see more of your t-shirt quilts as you know I've got one in the finishing stages now and I have to quilt it, though on the domestic, not long arm ... though I could go rent a long arm if it'd be ten times easier ;) I really like the first quilt you show, with the mother and daughter, very pretty and your quilting makes it more so! Thank you for sharing!!
