New Quilts




ColorForm 9 and 10 were made this summer. I decided to try something new with the machine quilting. The white background has stitching that is farther apart, the stitching on the colors is close together, and sometimes horizontal or vertical. I was happy this was easy to do, and I like the way it looks!

As a challenge this summer, I am finishing a quilt that is 5feet x 9 feet! Hard to machine quilt, hard to judge sizes for the shapes, and just plain hard to see! It went off my design wall. Now how am I going to take a picture of it?

  1. Oh I just checked in at the computer and there you are with new pieces which are both very, very nice. I can't decide which I like better. How big are these pieces-probably similar to the others in this series?

    5x9 WOW that is huge....!!! I can't imagine after I am stuck working on a 3x3 format right now. I can't wait to hear how you deal with it.
