I've been busy with Freeda the last few weeks - and loving it! . . . a few pictures of quilts that have passed through the Little House this summer . . .
Kelly's Pinwheel quilt . . . love the colors! We chose Wildflowers Panto and Glide Thread - Buttercup; Hobbs 80/20 batting

Ruth's quilt - well actually it's Ruth's friend's quilt. When Ruth's friend, Bonnie, died, Bonnie's husband gave Ruth a box of Bonnie's quilting "stuff" - you know . . .we all have lots of those boxes. Well, Ruth came across a Kaleidoscope top that Bonnie had pieced, but not quilted. Ruth brought it to me, and we talked about what Bonnie might have wanted for the quilt - and chose feathers for the open spaces, and swirls in the Stack and Whack Kaleidoscope pieces. Ruth wanted it to be lofty - so she brought me two layers of polyester batting . . . lots of loft there! It turned out beautiful - and Ruth will be binding it and giving it back to Bonnie's family. Every quilt has a story - I love this one!

Lynne made this quilt for her daughter's wedding - she wanted it natural and earthy - so we chose "Come Dance with Me" panto; Glide thread; Hobbs Heirloom batting
Heather loves the modern look - this one is no exception! Glide Thread; Raindrops panto; Hobbs 80/20 batting
Ursula's yet to be born grandchild will be the lucky recipient of a Dr. Seuss quilt - it's so cute! I apologize for the quality of the photos - it really doesn't do it justice! Freehand 3s and es and fills; Quilter's Dream 70/30 batting; Glide thread - bright gold and white
by the way . . . if you look back a few posts to Facing your Fears you'll see that "old quilting granny" flying 6000 ft above the Mediterranean off the south coast of Turkey!
Guidel's quilt - Rosie Panto; Hobbs 80/20 batting; Glide thread
|Guidel's quilt - backing - love the way flannel shows off the quilting!|
Another of Guidel's quilts - this one was pieced and in a box for over 20 years!! There is one spot on it where her kids (now grown adults) have written on it - priceless!!! Glide Thread; Falling Leaves panto
Whew . . . that's a lot of quilts! Next post I'll show you the quilting process of another of Guidel's very special quilts . . . full on custom job - and it turned out fabulous!
Until next time . . . bzzzzz . . . . from the Little House :)
