Quilts, Quilts, Quilts!

 On the design wall

On the design wall

My design walls have been filled with color these last few weeks.  I've been sewing up a storm which actually started with some simple garment sewing which I'll get to in a future post.  Today's post is all about the quilts.  This one is straight from the scrap bin and will be donated to my guild's community quilts program.  I separated the colors in the bin so I could get this very hot version.  Cooler ones will also happen when I get some free time.

In the first picture you got a glimpse of Arches and Tunnels which is an applique quilt that I started about 2 years ago.  I finished the top a month or so ago and took it to a local long-armer for quilting.  I said I needed it to be done in time to enter into QuiltCon and she delivered, finishing it with over a month to spare.  I did a facing and will post photos when I get a chance for the official ones.

Also on the design wall is the gray and yellow shorebird quilt called Shoreline.  That one needs more gray on the sides so it's going to hang out for a bit.  The one in front is finished and while it's also straight from the scrap bin, the fabrics were a little more curated than the hot pink version above.  By the way, I used up every bit of that red print which is why it's called Every Last Piece.

The last one you've gotten some glimpses of is this piece below that I started in the Maria Shell class I took earlier this year. It's been on the design wall ever since and it's time to get it done.  I hope to be able to enter it into QuiltCon, so I better get cracking!
