Some finished quilts...

A couple of weeks ago I got 2 quilts back from my awesome longarm quilter. They've been gone for over a year and a half - she's good, but she's busy. And I figure they would have been sitting on my shelf too for a year and a half. It was somewhat of a reunion!

This took me a while to applique, so it was probably started 2 1/2 years ago. The pattern is from Kim Diehl's book Simple Traditions. It was fun looking at this and thinking about how my style has changed in the past few years. But I still love my traditional roots.

The quilting is fabulous! Butterflies...
Swirls and feathers...
This also came home and is bound. It was designed by me for my third book, but got cut for space.
I love how she quilted a feather wreath in the center.
One of my goals this year is to clear my pile of quilt tops. I'm getting closer! Thanks for visiting!!

  1. Your quilts are beautiful. I currently don't have a longarmer and wish I could do that level of quilting on my machine. Thanks for sharing.
