A little machine quilting....

 I wanted to show you a couple of quilts that I just got off the frame.  This one belongs to my aunt.  She made it for a lady that lost her daughter due to domestic violence.  The lady loved daisies and the quilt in the photo is upside down but it has an angel kneeling down in a field of daisies, praying. 
 This is a baby quilt that I pieced last year when I had my surgery.  I am in need of a baby shower gift next week so I pulled this out and quilted it.  I still need to add the binding on it.  Just sweet and simple. 
 I have another huge quilt that I quilted before these two but I forgot to take a photo of it.  I'll post it next time as it is upstairs and I'm too lazy to go up there and take a photo of it right now.  :)

I need to try to do some more adjusting to my machine and then I think I will pin this quilt of mine on next.  It is something that I made a year or two ago from scraps that I wanted to get rid of.  It is brighter than I tend to work with but I called it, "Signs of Spring" 

 Hope everyone has a wonderful and Blessed holiday weekend.  No plans here.  Richard and Andrew have to work Saturday and Sunday night...

These all look great - I love the quilting on the angel one - it looks like cabbage roses or something like that -works great with this quilt.

That angel quilt is a tender thing, Kristie. Your baby quilt and Spring quilt are very fun! I enjoy playing with brighter fabrics now and then. : )

All the quilts are beautiful. I love the spring quilt.

Take time for you this weekend. Is it still hot where you live? Sometimes I love to just pop in some movies and relax.

You have been busy! I guess your weather has gotten a lot cooler there as it has here. Just wondering if you also end up having to mess with tension every time you put a new quilt on the frame? It is my major peeve.

I would love to see a full picture of that daisies quilt. What I saw was gorgeous!
