But when it's time to give a gift of a quilt, I realize that a quilt top just won't do it! So, I have to get them quilted or - gasp! - quilt them myself! The Handi Quilter Sweet 16 has REALLY helped me in the past few months finish quite a few of my tops. I've given several away and have several waiting for the next time a call goes out for local charity requests.
Here's what I worked on yesterday afternoon:
|Cookie Cutter Hearts, tutorial and free pattern|
A few other quilt finishes in the past few weeks:
|Storybook Butterflies, quilted in August|
|Storm at Sea, waiting to be picked up as a pattern|
|Ring of Hearts|
|Throw Your Hearts to the Wind|
|Bright, Happy Hearts on Black|
I am so enjoying turning all these unfinished quilt tops into usable quilts. I am glad they will get to live in loving homes with little babies and small children. Oh, you didn't know? I DON'T make bed sized quilts! Lap size is the largest I quilt. If it's a bed sized quilt I send it out to a professional longarmer!
