In the interest of my 2013 goal, which is to to use up the fabric in my stash and to practice on the long arm, I whipped up a few baby quilts and a wall hanging this week.
First up, an American Jane panel that I quilted on the long arm with my new love, Aurifil thread. My machine loved this thread. =)
I love how it looks. =)
A Dick and Jane and American Jane combo baby quilt.
Here is a small piece of trivia about me....I was named after the Jane character in the Dick and Jane readers. My daddy picked out my first name, and my 6 year old sister, who was learning how to read at school with the Dick and Jane readers, chose Jane for my middle name. =)
The view of the back. I quilted it on the long arm with Gutermann thread.
I need more practice with restarting after changing to a new bobbin.
Another American Jane baby quilt. Strip quilts work perfect with the large print fabric that would lose their charm if cut up too small.
And the back....
I have had this granny square flimsy sitting around for months. I used simple meandering on the granny square blocks and left the white blocks alone. If I could quilt a flower that didn't look like it was dying, I would do one in each of the white squares, but I can't, so that's that.
I really love how this one turned out!
How about you? Do you have any last minute finishes to share?
