Whirlygig Top and more

I am a huge fan of the 1930's reproduction fabric. I took some of my scraps to make a Whirlygig top. There are several free tutorials on the internet and I used one by Makelemons.com over here.
I have done some quilting too and quilted this king size green House top.
Close up of the pieced borders and corner.
Cute little green houses.
This Chinese Coin top was quilted for Michelle. It is such a happy quilt.
Pink backing goes so well with the coins.
I had seven charms and a few scraps leftover from previous projects. I found this Patchwork Chevron Modabakeshop pattern over here. It is perfect for my charms and 5" strips.
These blocks are huge and are cut on the bias. I love crisp fabric and like to use a heavy starch.
 My Hugs and Kisses quilt are bounded, but not washed yet. I can't wait to throw the quilt in the washer and dryer.
 
 Movin' On Up is my next top I would like to quilt. I could not make up my mind, whether to put a border or not. I think I am going borderless. I found the free pattern at Crazy Mom Quilts over
 here.
 
Happy quilting,
Millie

Look at you, Millie! Lots of productivity over there. I like the 1930's repros, too. They just seem so happy, don't they?

Millie, your 1930's quilt is so cute! I have been collecting some too. Good to see see you are busy on the long arm, too!

Enjoy your day!
