    I took a break from my commision quilt to work on a few little things....
    SO I finished a norman rockwell wall hanging..I still need to put on binding but I quilted it today.
    I also quilted a little quilt using "my little pony" and "strawberry shortcake" material....I usually don't use this kind of material but i had these from when my youngest was a toddler and we made her baby blankets..these are the scraps of what is left.

    I also used leftover scraps from a snowman flannel quilt I made a few months ago and made this raggedy flannel quilt. When I quilt it and then wash it all the edges of those squares will get frayed and look worn and comfy!..thinking I shoud use wool batting.

    Charismah, I really like the flannel quilt & the pattern. Those are appealing to the eye. Have you seen the Gee's Bend quilts by the Southern Alabama African American quilters that are abstracts? I think it was back in 1950s that a priest saw the quilts on the clotheslines around the town where he was walking through & somehow got them noticed by a Northern Museum, if I have my story straight. Your flannel quilt looks similar.

    I love your aesthetic- So fresh and contemporary. All the quilts are just terrific. Applause, applause!!

    ( I am also a Gees Bend fan - I've managed to go to 2 different showings of their work, since I heard about the group.)

    The Strawberry Shortcake and My Little Pony quilt took me down memory lane. I saw fabrics I used for my daughter's playclothes!

    You do a wonderful job on your quilts. Thanks for sharing!

    Beautiful work! Did the alphabet material come with the Norman Rockwell panel or did you buy it separately?

    I'd love to see the ragged one after it's washed! You are a terrific quilter--love that design.

    These are great --- and I'm so jealous that this was you "taking a break" -- I need to get someone to do all of my school paperwork so I can take breaks like yours more often!!!

    The norman Rockwell is a panel...so I didn't add anything to it....you can't really see in the picture but in all of those separate borders I quilted something different...in the picture itself I only outlined the boy,girl, dog , and hearts on the tree.
    I love the alphabet part.

    How nice all of them are. I couldn't pick just one that I like the best. They are all so nice. I enjoyed seeing the close up of your quilting.

    Sometimes you just have to take a break. Thanks for the closeup of the quilting on the pink quilt. I'm about to start a baby quilt and might try this.
