3 finishes and 2 tops...

I have some pictures to share with you. The first finish is my split 9-patch. It is beautifully quilted by Liz at Kaktus quilt.
This is my finished circus pinwheels tablecloth. Quilted in the ditch. I found the pattern in one of Kaffe Fassetts books.





Then my finished cuppaz, partly Jan Mullen, partly inspired by Tonya. It is handquilted with fans. My first attemmpt at this. I have used a quilting stencil to mark the quilt. Love the look of handquilting. Thanks to Tonya for inspiring summer classes!








And the vintage tumler is gotten bigger. I have added all my green and pink patches to make it a better size. I think this will be my next handquilting project.




This last picture is a flannel top for one of our sofas. No name for it yet. The fabric is so soft - Woolies by Bonnie Sullivan. I bought a roll of fat eights on my holliday of her spring collection and was able to add 2 patches from each of the of the blues and cream ( size 4" by 8") to make it a bit more scrappy.
My plan is to use it as a sofacover.
Autumn is coming soon. We have a few orange and red leaves on the maple three outside - so pretty! Just love the autumn colors! Dark evenings to spend sewing and quilting...
Thank you for visiting. Hope you will enjoy the rest of your weekend. And please feel free to leave any comments on my blog. Take care.
