Judith's quilt

And today's little piece of catch-up belongs to Judith.  Super cuteness - I just added some simple yet effective point-to-point quilting.

Now I'm just waiting to hear back on this one - I think I'm supposed to be attaching the binding but I can't remember - the original intake form has been misplaced... shhhh, that's the first one I've ever lost, see, I really am human!

Carl's Crown of Isis

What an awesome quilt!  Here is the full finished picture of Carl's Crown of Isis quilt, pattern is by Deb Karasik.

And here's the detail:

Now, this is like Carl's third quilt.  Seriously!  Apparently he's adventurous when it comes to piecing quilts - he takes the no-fear method, which is great!  But (that darn but)... I really want to share this, because not everyone knows -- pressing your seams is crazy important.  Here's a picture of one of the overlapping seams on Carl's quilt.  I like to call it lazy pressing -- it makes it impossible to stitch-in-the-ditch and can cause some serious difficulties when it comes time to line everything up.

Just think if you were piecing a quilt block, and your seams were overlapping by 1/4", and there were say four seams in that block, by the time you were done with the block it would be 1" smaller.  Just think if there were 6 blocks across -- you can see how things might not line up.  Just a little tidbit of info -- take time and press seams properly, it will help you in the long run.

Not to worry, Carl is on his way to piecing many more quilts I'm sure!!

Mary's Two Quick quilts

I know, you were all expecting to see Sally's other quilt - you will, most probably tomorrow.

I had to squeeze these two quilts in over the weekend for Mary - no worries, I had a wonderful Mother's Day - hopefully you all did as well!

So here are Mary's two super cute quilts -

Update:  So many people asked about the bike quilt that I searched for it.  Yes, I would have asked Mary, but she is traveling.  The pattern is called Stowaways, here is the: link:

Sally's Summer Day Sampler

I started Sally's Summer Day Sampler (pattern by The Rabbit Factory) last week while my Mom was here visiting.  I did manage to work on it here and there, and finally finished it yesterday.  I was going to wait to share it until I had Sally's other quilt finished, but that won't be for a few days - and you all know how impatient I am - that and my serious need to over share...

So here goes - some super cuteness!!

No worries, I'll be sharing Sally's other quilt as soon as it is finished!
