This is Yolanda's Quilt.  It was easy to do up...I just went back and forth with my quilting from one triangle the the next.  I used a gray thread and Hobbs batting.  Fun, Fun!

This is Sandara's quilt.  Fun quilt with fun fabric.  I did the pattern Gilded by Ann Bright on it and used a variegated Rainbow-white and black thread.

These two quilts are Sandy's.  They were block of the month quilts and Sandy did two at the same time!!  Way to go!  Sandy quilted each block with different decorative stitches (that was part of the class...learning how to use your sewing machine stitches), with the batting all ready on the back....the borders and sashing's did not have batting, so I quilted it, like I would any quilt.  I didn't have to do very much quilting in the blocks and I like how they puffed up after quilting around all the flowers.. I also tried really hard to keep my quilting keep down the hours!  I think I did pretty good!  As you can see a lot of the borders do not have quilting inside....I did stitch in the ditch for all seams though,  It bugs me to have seam pop up....although I like seams popping up sometimes!  Okay...I'm rambling...
About 6 hours per quilt and one thread color through out.  The piano key border was easy because I did a light squiggly line instead of using a ruler to make perfect straight lines....
and when stitching in the ditch I slowed my speed up a bit and did not use the ruler very much for that either...just tried to stay in the ditch freehand.

OK...I think that's it!  Sandy will be here any minute to pick them up!
Hope she likes them!

This Winter Wonderland quilt is Marcella's.  These are always fun to quilt up.  I think this is my 8th one I've done up now.  Tried something new for the sky in the embroidery blocks thanks to Sharon.
