I can breath again!

I finished Carolyn's quilt today and I can breath again!!  This is a pretty old quilt and was a joy to quilt it.  I'm sure whoever pieced would be happy!  The binding went fairly well..I had to cut it on the bias and there was no way I was able to attach it while it was on my longarm, so I attached it with my sewing machine and ironed over then to the back and stitched in the ditch on the top.  It was tricky doing those inside corners.  But am pleased with how it turned out.  Carolyn will be here soon to pick it up.  Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!
 This is Robin's quilt.  I took this picture because sometimes I have to turn off my overhead light and small bar light that is on my machine and quilt in the dark.  The fabric was a very busy fabric and I couldn't see the quilting....this way I can see my quilting..

This is Deb's fun Christmas quilt.  Straight lines worked good for this.

This is Chris's wall quilt.  I believe it was her first needle turn applique and she did a wonderful job!  I like the pebbles in this quilt.

This is also Chris's.  It is a table runner and she is adding prairie points which I think will set it off very nice!  FYI...when doing prairie points you have to leave about 1/2 inch unstitched all around the edges.

This quilt was done up by a different Chris.  Isn't this a cute quilt.  I love the little bird houses.  I did the pattern feathered curls on it.

 This quilt was pieced by Betty.  I did the pattern Bountiful Feathers on it.  This is the 2nd time I've used this pattern and I like it a lot.  It worked great for this pretty quilt.
 This is Sandara's quilt.  I used the pattern Popcorn on it and used a fun bright variegated thread.   It is for her 12 year old daughter.  They like their bright colors!

 This is also Sandara's.  I believe this is going in her husbands office.  Isn't it cute.  I've never seen one like this before!

My friend Melissa did up this darling Christmas quilt!  I really like the straight line quilting on it.  It was a toss up on the thread color.  Either tan or light blue.  I ended up doing the blue, which I am happy about.  Melissa is not picking this up till Friday, she is out of town.  But I know she is checking it out here on my blog.  Hope you like it Melissa!  This is one quilt, that will be hard to give back!

Colleen did up this fun batik quilt for a Christmas gift.  I used the pattern Gilded on it.  I'm sure who ever gets it for Christmas will love it!

This is Deb's quilt.  A small little flannel cat quilt.  Cute..cute..

This is also Deb's. I did a swirl on it.  It think it gives it movement around the horses.  These horses look like they are in Southern Utah.  Another quilt my brother would love!

This is Kayla's cute little apron quilt.  Each apron is a different fabric line.   I think she made full size aprons for people in her family ...then she made this quilt after, using the same material.  Cute! Cute!
Lisa did this cute little quilt up!  Makes me want to do one!

This is Elna's quilt.  She did this up as a shop sample for the Needle and I.  I did Feathered Curl on it.  It turned out pretty.  So festive!
