Happy dance with me, I finished a queen size quilt for my midwife today!
Her wedding is Sunday, so just in time.  It is colors I would never have
worked with on my own, so I am really pleased with it. It is fun to get
out of your comfort zone!  It is a five patch on point in scrappy bright
pastels, with cream plain squares and setting squares. The plain blocks
are quilted with entwined hearts, and the rest is straight quilting.
There are hearts in the corners with straight quilting in the borders.
The border is a cabbage rose print that repeats the colors in the
scrappy 5 patches.   It's in the wash right now (good excuse to wash my
sheets to go with it) and I will package and wrap it tomorrow.    
Now... on to the next quilt!       Christina

Bet your legs are in great shape. <G> I haven't even begun to think of
fixing up my treadle yet. Too many other things to do first. Sigh.

Last week I posted that I had finished 3, two big and one little. Now
you know I have had 4 quilts going at once! They are all done, so I
guess I get to start 4 new ones! Mine seem to go in bunches like that.

It is named one heart, because the entwined hearts look like they are
going from two to one.  Appropriate for a wedding I think :-)     The
quilting was easy on this one. The piecing is the star. Sometimes it is
even, sometimes the quilting is the star, but not this time.   Yours
will tell you how it wants to be quilted if you look at after enough
beers <jk>  Can you post a picture of the top and we will have a naming
contest?    Christina

Wow Christina, you are on a roll!  Didn't I just happy dance last week
for a finished quilt of yours?  Give me some of that motivation....
Christmas is right around the corner and I have sewing/quilting to
finish!

Here's a Teletubbie Shuffle for your midwife's quilt. Did you name it?
I'm having a hard time coming up with a name for my OB's quilt (not to
mention trying to figure out how to quilt the thing!)

Way to go, Christina!
