Snapshot, Antique quilt and more

 I hope you all are having a great summer. I am so ready for fall, we are having such a warm and dry summer  here in Texas. With my kids back in school again, I had time to do a lot of sewing for myself.  I quilted one of my UFO's, this is my youngest daughter's purple and blue Snapshot quilt.  She picked out the fabrics and the quilting pattern.  I am very pleased  how the quilt turned out after the quilting.
 Now from a very fast sewing top, to an old antique quilt.  It could easily have taken days or months to hand sew the top.
 I took a picture of the back of the top to show the hand sewing. A lady from Yerington, NV asked me to quilt this old beauty.  She had this top  for a few years and never got to the quilting.
 The fabric is so pretty.  I admired the 1930's prints for a long time.
 Look at the pretty scalloped border. I am sure it is going to be a challenge to finish the binding.
 From an old flowery quilt to a new Turnover quilt from Marrinell. All these pretty precut fabric makes quilting so much faster.
 I quilted this Basket quilt for my friend Shirley. The green fabric squares showcase the basket blocks nicely.
 And the last quilt,  Jan's Star quilt in fall fabic. She loves black and uses it in every quilt.
 The backing is black too.
 I am so sorry for not blogging and reading blogs in a long time. On a positive note, I have been quilting a lot and made a lot of quilts.  Can't wait to show more in the next posting.
Happy Quilting
