Another one off the frame...

Another one off the frame! Today I quilted the quilt that I showed you in my last post. It is beautiful! Her mitered corners are perfect. It quilted up nicely with Hobbs cotton batting. She wanted it quilted with the "Chantilly Lace" design. I just love the fabrics used in this one. I'm always afraid to use larger scale floral, I'm never sure what to do with them and then I see a quilt like this one and I wish I had made it. LOL! This quilt was a nice size, it measures 92x104. I didn't get a photo of the backing but I think you can see a little of it in the first photo. It is a creamy floral wideback, I just love it.

I'm going to load my next one on later tonight and get started on it first thing in the morning after everyone leaves for school. I have to do the binding also on it.


During a couple of my breaks today, I sat down at my sewing machine and pieced a few more log cabin blocks. I think I'm up to 15 now. I still have problems with my hips from time to time so I have to take breaks every little bit from standing at the frame, so this was the perfect time to get a few more blocks finished. I didn't get a photo of them but you will just have to take my word for it. :)


I'm off to finish up some laundry and get that other quilt loaded on the frame before bedtime.

Very, very pretty! I usually don't use large florals either; for some reason I stay with small prints such as reproduction prints.

My neighbor, who does LAQ, had to take a break because her back was hurting. Taking breaks now and then is a good idea.
