End of April wrap up

And March for that matter. Yes, I'm a bad blogger. In my defense, I've been productive and working the second job too. Without further ado.... some of the finishes starting with the most recent.

My version of the Schnibbles pattern Hat Trick by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. This is made using two charm packs of Twiggy by Sanae. There were only 34 squares per pack so I added one other background fabric to make it work. Sinta and Sherri are hosting Another Year of Schnibbles (AYOS) and I'm hoping to participate as time allows. I do LOVE Carrie Nelson's (Miss Rosie's) patterns.

Center of the custom medallion quilt. This was a quilt top completed by a quilting friend who passed away last summer. She had marked the top and I tried to stay true to the areas she had marked. The trapunto doves were her idea.

Lots of ruler work.


The final border. It did turn out nice. I had forgotten how much time custom ruler work takes. I know her family will cherish this and a couple other of her final projects.
The crib size Discontinuity top is done sans a good pressing. The designer recommended not ironing during the construction process to avoid distortion. One of these days I'll take it on.

I did finish the Playing with Jacks top and hope to quilt it soon. Photos to follow.

Miles and Paisley say bye for now.

Some lovely finishes this month. You did a fabulous job finishing the medallion quilt. I certainly can understand the distortion ironing can do, surprised it had no impact to iron it at the end. Great kitty picture! See you soon, Sandi

You are forgiven for not posting very often. Your work is gorgeous! The quilting you did on your friend's quilt is just spectacular! Blogging should be fun and it should happen when you feel like it.

While I love your Hat Trick quilt, I'm especially in awe of your beautiful quilting. It's stunning.

Congratulations on the beautiful finishes. :)
