Back at the Quilting Machine

I am back at the quilting machine quilting customer quilts and loving every moment of it.

I quilted the first Red Hunter Star quilt for Pat with the panto called Curlz..

The next pastel 1930 quilt is also Pat's quilt.

This Red, White and Blue Patriotic quilt was pieced by Glenda. I think Debra Geissler's Stars panto turned out very nice on her quilt. Oops, I quilted her quilt upside down!

The last two Baby Quilts was pieced by Carolyn. I quilted the Pastel Flower quilt with Tammy Finkler's Faster Posies.

Thank you and thank you again!

Thank you so much for all the comments on my little give away and for all the new friends/followers I made. I am absolutely stunned and I could not believe the wonderful response I got. I wish I could give everybody something.

My 13 year old daughter picked the first comment for the winner. Leta's Bits and Pieces can you please e-mail me your snail mail address?

I am so grateful for all my blogging friends and decided to give away this little pink and green quilt with a watering can candle too. And the lucky number is 255, the last comment. Pamdux can you also e-mail me your snail mail address?

It seams like the whole country is having record time low temperatures. Max is staying warm with his new quilt.

Look what I got in the mail...the cutest coffee quilt by my friend, Zlaty from Zlaty Sews. Zlaty thank you so much for the PIF gift. I will treasure this quilt for ever.

I completely agree with this block. I don't think I could go a day without a little caffeine.

Also with Zlaty's PIF coffee quilt, I got this blue snowman panel. It's kind of lucky that blue happens to be my favorite color. If you do have time, please visit her blog.

My Green Strip quilt is quilted and washed.

I like the pink and green backing just as much as the front of the quilt.

This is my finished blue and brown quilt. Thank you so much for all the advice in this posting. I went with the second layout.

I had one 4 patch block leftover which I took apart and use as cornerstones. This is an easy solution for the stripe border fabric.

Brown scrappy backing.

Happy Quilting!

Give Away

I like to celebrate my One Year Blog Anniversary with a small give away. I have made so many wonderful friends through my blog. I also want to thank you for the comments I have received. After my first blog blowing up I thought of just giving up and being down with it. But I decided to stick with it and made this new one. I'm so glad that I did because its made me so happy sharing this blog and reading others.

First I would like to give away this quilt. I had so much fun making and quilting the quilt.

I also would like to include a pack of Thimbleberrie Fat Quarters and a book.

There is 5 Fat Quarters in the pack...a purple, blue, 2 greens and a red.

The Amish Patterns for Machine Quilting book is a great source for quilting ideas.

Please leave a comment this posting to be entered in the give away.
If you are a follower, please leave another comment for a second chance to win.
And if you have blogged about my give away, please come back with another comment for one more opportunities to win.

Good luck to all of you. Next Saturday I will ask a family member to give me the lucky number of the winner.

Happy New Year to all of you!
I hope 2010 is a lucky year for all of us.
