Two Little Quilts

The weather was beautiful this weekend...it got up in the high seventies today!  I did manage to get two tops quilted.

The first is a charity quilt that I picked up to do for the Quilts on Wheels charity of the Capital Quilters Guild of Raleigh.  It is a cheater cloth Crazy Quilt with one border added.  I decided to do another panto on it, "Feathers All Over."


The thread broke constantly and I did not like the look of the quilting as much as my own free-motion quilting.  This will probably be my last panto.



The next one is the first of five quilts that my customer Teresa brought to me.  It is a baby quilt with an adorable sea creatures theme fabric.   I just quilted ocean waves in a bright pear green thread.



I sketched some of these funny jellyfish and critters to possibly use in some future quilting.



The backing has the same blue fabric.



I will be leaving for Boone, NC in the morning to spend a few days with my dad.  He was recently in the hospital with congestive heart failure.  In fact, he went in the day before we left for Hawaii.  My brother and his wife from Florida have come up for a few days, so we are going to enjoy a nice visit together.  Two of my other brothers (I have five) also live in Boone, so I am really looking forward to my trip.
