Pieced on Thistle Marie, quilted on Classic Lady, and decorative binding stitched on Janome, Lauren's baby quilt is finished.
I love the cherry theme to this pinwheel quilt.
Front and back.
A peek at the top of the quilt. All of the pinwheels were pieced using Thistle Marie (Treadle), and the prairie points were basted on using Classic Lady (15-91), since that required lots of starts and stops to make sure points were on correctly. Quilting will be done on Classic Lady.
This is the material for pinwheel baby quilt that I will make for Lauren's baby shower.
The cherry theme squares will be used to make the pinwheels for the front of the quilt, and the large fabric with the small circles (that Erica says has a pea theme; hahaha) will be the back of the quilt. The yellow dragonfly fabric will be the binding. I forgot to show off the yellow squares in this photo; they are underneath the block of red.

Today is my parents 60th Wedding Anniversary, July 29,2010 ( Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad). This is a quilt I made for them to decorate their bed and keep them warm. My mom loves blue and their bedroom has light blue walls. This is the front of the quilt. I didn't realize when choosing fabric that the quilt would have a modern Japanese look. Saw this pattern in magazine at the library and fell in love with it immediately (that one was made of different shades of green with brown). Made this queen size quilt in one week so that it would make it in time for their anniversary (had to get it finish before my camping trip and get it mailed off in time to arrive).
Up close of all the fabrics for the top of quilt.
The back of quilt. Somewhere on the back I signed the quilt (think on red strip).
A look at both sides. Used my favorite decorative stitch on the binding; front side has white thread and back side is red.
