more videos and batik quilt done and march collage

Here's a collage of my projects from march, some are mine, some are customer quilts or blocks I've won

here's the customer quilt I started friday.

quilted feathers and swirls

here's the back of the Dr seuss quilt

a little peek at the front

a video of how I quilted a loopy meandering

the quilt for my mom is DONE!! (without a label though)

I did a corner to corner curve on all the storm at sea blocks.

a video of how I did it :-)

on the large snowball blocks I did a feather wreath

and a video of it here

of course I did bubbles on the skinny border and a flowing glass inspired by Leah day on the large border

also took a video of that here

for the backing I used a fabric given to me by our friend from Singapore who studies at UNC (we pick her up to go to church with us on sundays) THANKS!!
I thought my mom would like the black fabric and the designs on it too

I'm sure I've shown you my daughters very LOVED quilt, here's another look at it.
it's the first quilt I ever made! it's been well loved

look! the outer border is almost done and part of the binding is still hanging on with a patch I had used a long time ago to patch up a hole in the quilt, now my daughter says the quilt has a tail!

I wanted to show you this picture too. this is the view of our backyard (to the fence line)
they are building another house on the corner lot of the street, boo hoo. it's really going to mess with my view...

see the red barn in the way back! once the house is done I won't be able to see the barn anymore :-(

another thing I did today was quilt the 4 seasons tree quilt, didn't take pics yet, the binding is sewn on so once that's done I'll show you!!

I really enjoyed watching the video of quilting the Dr. Seuss quilt. It was very relaxing to watch! Great job!

I just love seeing well loved quilts. My first quilt is the same. It's all raggedy, and it is the first one someone grabs to snuggle down with while reading a book or watching a movie. They actually take it off my bed (recliner) where I sleep with it at night!
