A Productive Day

I bought this flannel children’s panel years ago, and finally got it finished.

Flannel Baby Quilt 002

I used the Daisies Galore panto on it as there are a lot of daisies in the panel.

This quilted up beautifully and I’m as happy with the back as I am with the front!  I used Superior Thread’s Highlights in the bobbin as it was the closest thread I had in colour to the backing.  There is a King Tut variegated on the top.

This ended up being one expensive baby quilt as I paid a small fortune for the flannel backing.  Flannel isn’t cheap around here and the backing alone cost me almost $50.  This will have to go to a very special baby!

I also finished this table runner.

Tablerunner 001

Mark the calendar – I didn’t do a panto on it, I actually free motion quilted it! 

Tablerunner 004

Although it’s really hard to see, I did a feather wreath in the middle of the 9 patches and tried some pebbling on the black sashing.  It’s a long way from perfect, but it was kind of nice being outside my box for a little while.

You've been Busy Irene, and it all looks great!

This table runner is breath taking. I love the subtleness of the grays and blacks. Lovely work.

You've been and continue to be very productive! I love the tablerunner. Those fabrics are gorgeous!

And the baby quilt looks so cuddly. I love flannel for backing especially on baby quilts. If only it didn't cost an arm and a leg!
