Last of the Baby Quilts
Here they are -- the last of the baby quilts for this year. (I already have some orders for next year).
The cats are my favorite of this bunch.
They are embroidered with stem stitch (by hand). I just made up the piecing pattern with the squares and border fabrics and somehow got it all to fit. I was going for a pretty random look.
The train quilt is just a quilted panel. The backing fabric is railroad ties. I did quite a bit of hand quilting on this one.
Finally, the turtle quilt. I got this picture from a bunch of patterns my mom found at an estate sale. It looked like a very old coloring book page. No book, just this page.
Hope everyone has a safe and happy Labor Day Holiday. While I am so glad for the holiday weekend (so I don't have to come to work!), I'm always sad at Labor Day because that basically means summer is over. Seems like this summer went by faster than others. I'm not a winter person and am not looking forward to going through another winter.
