Charity Quilt finish and update ….

My Charity quilt is all done, except being washed and shipped. If you would like to make one, you can request a kit here . They ship you all the material, the pattern instructions, you just have to provide thread, batthing and some love.

We had sunny weekend so I took some pictures off the quilt on the porch. I quilted it on my New Joy Gold Standard frame. I need to get some more pantos, but I can go only about 6,5″ wide. Do you have any suggestions for good, easy to stitch pantos?
I did the binding on the machine. I like to hand stitch the binding, but this quilt quilt be washed a lot. I am happy how it turn out!

Talking about LOVE, I want to share the nice Surprise I got from my hubby for Valentine’s Day.

Isn’t he the BEST husband!
He did great! I was out and when I got home I found the lovely arrangement that was delivered.

What is Valentine’s Day without Chocolate?
I love taking pictures and I couldn’t resist showing some.

He also made chicken pot pie that was very delicious, and he didn’t use any recipe.

… and apple tart for desert. I know I am very lucky!
I hope everybody that is in love had a wonderful holiday!

I hope you made it to the end of my long post. 🙂 Here is the “Be Warm” block appliquéd.

It has been so cold lately and I was hoping it will get warmer if I work on that block! :)) Well it’s raining now, but we still have snow on the ground.

Happy sewing!

Quilt Shops Hopping and Quilting!

Here is an update on out Eastern PA Shop-hopping.

This is the quilt at “Quilter’s Pallet” in Fleetwood, made out of the basket blocks. The quilter used wool for the appliqué flowers. It’s one of my favorite.

This is “Happy Sewing Room” quilt. I am a little bias when I say, this is one of my favorite quilt since I quilted it and my mother in law designed and piece the quilt. It was the second quilt I quilted on my New Joy Gold Standard frame.
Here is a close up of the quilt on the frame:

I think the leave design went perfect with the baskets!

This is “Allentown Sewing” quilt:
This hand quilted quilt was a door prize, but either of us, me or Heather didn’t win it.
The quilt was displayed at ”Wooden Bridge” and bellow is their sample that was hand quilted also.
I have few more quilt shops to show you! Till then………..Happy sewing!

Flower Quilt and Help Wanted

I picked up this panel at the Muncy Quilt Show and I got to work right way!

I saw the sample in a vendors booth and I loved all the bright colors. She had it quilted with overall pattern with flower design. The kit I purchased was packed very cute in this little bag.

It came with the fabric for the borders, but it wasn’t enough so I added the yellow fabric.

I think it will be great for a wall hanging or a baby’s quilt. I imagine after it’s quilted I can add beads and buttons. I am still debating how should I quilt it? Any ideas how should I quilt it?

Some of you asked me about my quilting frame. I didn’t use it, yet.
It’s leveled and ready to go.
I am planing to quilt it on the frame. I try to load it but I am not sure if I am doing it right?

I have New Joy Standard Quilting frame. I am not sure if I have the backing right on the frame.

Would you quilting fairies have look at the frame and tell me if I have the backing right?
I really appreciate all your suggestions!

Thank you in advance for all your help!

Happy Stitching!
