Quilt Show Entries

Here are a few finishes from this month. The first one is Snowman, a BOM from the guild and will be in the show next month.

The second one is a sampler from many years ago from another group. This was going to be in the show, but it had issues with the back and pleats, so I decided against it.

The third one is almost finished, just need to do a little more quilting, binding, sleeve and label. It is a Purse Swap from another group and all blocks are signed with their name and hometown.

The last one is the Round Robin that I just got back and am in the process of deciding how to embellish it. I hope to have it done by the end of the week so that I can work on getting stuff ready for the quilt show. This and the one before will be in the show, too. I am thinking small green ric-a-rac for vines and then appliqueing leaves in between the outside flowers. I found some butterflies to be appliqued in my stash and I decided to use those along the border and in between the flowers. I was pleasantly surprised that they actually matched! What a great find. Not sure if I am going to do a solid border on the outside to finish it off or if I want to repeat the colors in a piano key or small squares and then a solid border. I am going to do dragonflies in a few of the corners and then a meandering stitch with flowers to quilt it.

Anyway, that is what I have been up to here lately. Chat later.

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
