Two Quilts May 1st, 2009

The Granny

Leading up to Easter with the help of my sister and my friend we had blitz the house getting it cleaner and more organized than what it has been for many a year, then after Easter with the house still clean I decided that it was time for some stitching. I wanted to make my friend a couple of small cuddle quilts for her to give to her grandkids.

As it turned out we ended up with two not so small quilts because we decided that for one of the quilts we would finish one that I already had peiced and partly quilted…after we had finished the quilting and bound the edges and finished it as a quillow, I added a few small appliques to personlize it a bit…the fish down the bottom seems to have got himself a little lost….

Nine Patch and quarter square triangles

For the second quilt we started by using the same design as the first and made up the red and green nine patches, when we had them done and started looking for fabrics to go with them we decided that squares would suit this quilt better and with the help of another friend and her stach we chose enough fabrics for the squares, while looking for the fabrics for the squares we had pulled out the fabric that we ended up using for the borders.

And now my friend has gone home I won’t be getting straight back into blogging because bright and early tomorrow morning I am heading off with a couple of other friends for a 2 week caravaning holiday.

    Hallo Annie,

    have so much fun with your stitches-variations.

    Find your brand new quilts very intersting, also your variations from border is very intersting.

    Kindly find time to visit our visited exhibitions on the website of our group (ther I am a member) located in Austria/Europe.

    Sincerely Adelheid Wieder
