Hugs & Kisses Finished

Hugs & Kisses is my second finish for the year.  I used white & black variegated thread and am very pleased with the results.

032714    (998x1024)The to-be finished quilt list started out with 6 tops, but several other quilt tops joined the party, so now there are 8 – well, now there are 7 since Hugs & Kisses is done.  But I found a 2 more that may end up on the quilting list also.

I am making no promises that all these quilts will be quilted, but I am going with this for now.  The brown/red/green quarter log cabin is close to finished and the next one on the list is the Broken Dresden Plates.  It is funny to me that I didn’t start naming my quilts until I had this blog.

After the Broken Dresden Plates is finished, I plan on quilting Robots & Aliens.  For that quilt I want to use monofilament thread on my HQ Sweet Sixteen which will be a first.

Happy Friday,

Progress on Bermuda Sunrise

The machine quilting is done and I am sewing the binding on Bermuda Sunrise.

032214   (1024x706)The black & white variegated thread blended nicely on the quilt top and I am very pleased with the meander with flowers quilting design.

The top was completed in 2010 and measures 67″ x 67″.  It really doesn’t look like a Bermuda Sunrise, does it?  However that was the name of the pattern in the magazine.  I am officially renaming this quilt Hugs & Kisses since the blocks were set in Xs and Os.

This is the first of seven quilt tops that are in the queue to become completed quilts.  That will keep me busy for the next several weeks.
