Working Wednesday....

We have had a few computer problems here....grrr!
But it gave me time to do a little cutting and stitching....


actually lots of cutting, stitching and pressing....



And on Monday we finished a class....so I am excited to be able to share more fantastic finishes with you!!!


Susan made a GIANT coin quilt!  It is just marvelous!  I love the dark chocolate brown with those pops of teal and red!  And check out her pick stitching....


Susan used a variegated thread for the straight line quilting...I love the texture the variegated thread adds :)

And then we have Helen's baby quilt!  Helen is expecting her second little girl very soon....this is a perfect girly girl quilt....



Helen machine quilted with organic straight line stitching.  She always chooses such fantastic fabrics!


So sweet!
And speaking of sweet....Katie made a baby quilt as well :)  Katie will be welcoming her first baby girl VERY, VERY soon!

This is such a fresh, lovely quilt....perfectly suited for the new baby!


I love the fabrics in this quilt!  And she positioned the borders so cleverly....giving the top and bottom border a scallop effect!

  

What a great class this was!  Three mom's-to-be and an OB nurse!  LOL!  They were a fun group.  Best of luck to each with their new little ones :)
Happy Wednesday!

Beautiful coin quilts! Love the layout of narrow coins with wider bars. And the quilting is very pretty...

Lovely collection of Coin Quilts, even better that they are for babies expected soon. Love the idea Helen used of interspersing the coin columns with a flowered fabric. Beautiful!
