Barb made this little quilt for her neighbor's baby - it's a very unique pattern - look closely at it. I quilted it with Glide thread - Bright Gold which worked perfectly, and freehand 3s and Es - I'm getting better at those!

I've had a chance to finish a few of my own projects as well. This Friendship Braid quilt has been quilted for a long time - a really long time - but I finally got the binding done! Hurray - into the done pile! Glide Thread (sand); Freehand feathers, curves and swirls; Hobbs 80/20 batting
Last winter I picked up a couple of packages of fat quarters - Hoffman Batiks River Rocks. I really like these colors, and had planned to make a couple of curve quilts - but I decided instead to use one of the packages to make a Hopscotch quilt. This is a great fat quarter pattern - you have absolutely NO scraps when you're finished (now I like that!!!). I whipped this up when I was camping this summer - well, OK, RVing with electricity and my sewing machine on board. The backing is a fleece type backing - so soft and cuddly! I used Diamonds are Forever panto by Urban Elementz - very happy with it - look at the design on the backing! I'll be making another curve quilt out of these fabrics to go on the bunk beds in our grandkids sleepover room - nice and cozy!
