Betty's Blue & White Chain quilt

This afternoon I finished Betty's quilt (sorry, I don't know the pattern).  I had to wait until early this evening for the late sunlight coming through the front door - isn't it absolutely stunning!

And a peek at the back:

Next up, I'm working on two quilts for Jan -- trying to get ahead of schedule... trying!

Ginny's Italia quilt

Well, it is really Ginny's Mom's quilt. Ginny is my client, but her Mom pieced this beauty. It is going to be a wedding gift for a very lucky couple. The pattern is Italia, designed by Sarah Maxwell & Dolores Smith, and it was published in the McCalls Quilting Jan/February 2014 issue. I absolutely love the colors she chose (totally matches my decor, too).

I finished this beauty up early this evening and right as I was taking it off the frame... BOOM! I'd call that perfect timing! During the rainy season it is hit or miss on my working hours.

Okay, now for some detail pics, I had some fun with this one:

And, of course, a peek at the back:

JoAnn's Midnight Garden

Finally, after an almost week-long rain delay I finished JoAnn's quilt - it's a beauty too!  The pattern can be found in Twilight Garden Quilts by Deborah Kemball.  Sorry, some of the lighter colors are washed out - the sun was directly above me and, of course, today's storm is rolling in.

And a few detail pics:

And the back:

This was a fun one (aren't they all).  Now to start on the next one, before the storm!

Betty's Argyll Quilt

Betty's Argyll Quilt (pattern by Jinny Beyer) is finished and I absolutely love it!  This afternoon's weather was perfect and I managed to get some beautiful pics.

And a couple of close-ups:

And a peek at the back (sorry about the lighting, I forgot to get a back photo outside):
