Happy quilts

 My quilts make me happy and I love to create quilts from my stash. I have a finished Hugs and Kisses quilt. It washed up beautifully and I love how the quilts crinkled up after that first wash.
 Not only do I enjoy making quilts, but I absolutely love the quilting process. I can do it all day long, I wish I never have to cook and clean. lol I quilted this bright top for Jana.
 She used a panel, the border on the left is a cut-up panel.
 Cheerful yellow backing.
 Scrappy quilts are my favorite and Julie makes the most beautiful scrappy quilts. She used 1" strips to make this Jewel Box quilt.
 Plain white backing,
 Another Log Cabin I quilted for Julie.
 White backing again.
 I did not do a lot of cleaning, but a lot of quilting for myself. This weekend I will have to do some housework. I like how the Bubbles quilting turned out on this little quilt.
Blue backing from my stash, although this is a very traditional piece of fabric I think it goes well with the more modern charms. I like to use old fabric from my stash with the more modern tops.
 Another top I finished the quilting on.
This will be a cute happy little quilt when it is done. My youngest daughter's favorite color is orange and there is a lot of it in this quilt.
 I like this one too. I do like blue and purple, the colors calm me down. And with all the stress going on in the world I need more calmness around me.
 More purple on the back.
 I love the 1930's reproduction fabrics and I adore how the quilting on my Whirlygig's turn out.
 Very old green fabric from my stash for the backing, I think I have had it for more than ten years.
 My zig-zag quilt has been quilted. I like how the quilting on the white fabrics shows up so nicely.
 Now with all the quilts I have finished, I have a lot of binding work left to do. I have my Hugs and Kisses quilt displayed in my quilting room.
Happy Quilting,

Hi Millie- you are one prolific quilter! I always enjoy seeing your quilts and the ones you quilt for others. So much inspiration.
Other than that I am at a loss for words!

Those are some great looking quilts, Millie! Your quilting, as always, just makes each one even more beautiful. The 1930's are some of my favorites, too, they just seem happy. I guess thinking about the fact that those were really not happy times makes me love them more.
