Some Quilty News!

First off, I want to Thank everyone for all of the well wishes over my hand! Of course, my hand is still sore but I am doing fine! I tried to cut some quilt pieces but had a hard time trying to hold the ruler down with my left hand so I will wait a few days on that, no big deal. :)

But I have found that I can sew on my binding! That is one thing that does not bother my hand. I have two quilts that need bindings so I am working on that. Here is the first one, it is called "4 Patch Flip" I made the top several months ago, really quick and fun to do. This is the binding that I am currently working on. I have the binding about halfway finished on it.

This is the quilting from the backside of the quilt. It is backed with a blue sheet.

Here it is spread out on the bed...
Here it is again and if you look close in the background you will see my "Wall Of Quilts" or that is what Richard calls it. I have a ton of quilts folded and stacked in the floor. Right now I don't have alot of extra space so that is the only place to put them. But when I get the house finished I will display them better.This is the other quilt that needs binding. I have the binding ready so I will sew it on as soon as I finish the blue one. This is just a simple "Hole In The Barndoor" that I made several years ago. I really like this pattern and the scrappy fabric in it.
I forgot to take a photo of the back of it, but it is quilted with an Ivy design. I can't wait to get the bindings done on both of these.
I think I will go ahead and take these two quilts off of my list on the sidebar and call them finished because they will be. I have made myself promise that they will be completely finished this week! :) So 2 down and 73 more to go!!!! :(

I am glad your hand is some better and you can quilt. The quilting design is beautiful! To complicated for me. I love putting bindings on. That means a finished project.

Yvette said...

Did you quilt those? They are wonderful!

Amelia said...

Love the quilts..especially the last fact that is the pattern I have chosen for my next quilt - will be using what I consider rather old fashioned patterns and colors...not a difficult one (I suppose)

Glad your hand is on the mend.

Hugs - Lurline♥

Kristie! I love your quilts, and the quilting is absolutely awesome!
I'm sorry you couldn't cut today, but you did at least get to hand stitch the binding.

Glad your hand is feeling better.

Love the quilting! Congratulations on the finishes. I know how exciting that can be - I just haven't done it in a long time!! :)

Carol said...

Glad your hand is better! Love that Hole in the Barn Door! Very fun!

Tazzie said...

Your quilts look so pretty - and I'm glad your hand is feeling better that it was.
73 does seem like a lot of quilts, but one at a time they'll get done. Just keep chipping away at them.
Have a great weekend.

Kristie, I cannot believe you woman - you're dedicated on getting quilts done, even with a bum hand.

I love the quilting on the blue sheet you used for the backing.

WOW, they are both gorgeous, and the quilting really adds to the first quilt. I want to try and make the second quilt, i love it!
Hope you hand heals quickly!!

2 is a great start on your list!! Did you quilt them or have them quilted? I always get stuck at the quilting stage :-(

Guðrún said...

Both quilts are beautiful, be careful with your hand.
