I have NO idea when/how I will quilt it.
I recently found out my sweet son and his wife of 5 yrs. are expecting

Beautiful customer red and white quilt...lots of stars and log cabins. I really like the outer border too. She said she collected red fabrics for a year in order to get enough for this quilt. Kevin put a Baptist Fan in the center of the quilt, stitched in the ditch on the outer border, and did a small freehand vine design in the inner border. Thanks for looking!

And still no dent in the scrap bucket.
The third pic is a wall hanging I made using the pattern My Whimsical Quilt Garden by Becky Goldsmith and Linda Jenkins.
The last pic is a wallhanging my mom just made for me. She did all

I used a 4 inch pantograph for the borders, turning the quilt for each of them. I quilted the top border with the panto then free motion quilted the body basting the side borders as I went.
This pictures shows the quilt on the frame with the body quilting

The hexagons are pieced and quilted by hand. I used a spice container cap to draw a line from one corner to the other using my Clover hera marker. The borders are hand appliqué. They are machine pieced and free hand motion quilted. I quilted around the appliqué and in the corners where there is no appliqué I quilted

It has been many years since I needed fusible interfacing, so I don't know which to purchase.
