1st Quilted Quilt for 2013

I spent last weekend quilting 2 quilts. #1 was my "On Eagles Wings" & the other, i can't remember the name of the pattern. But it's gold & Blue

Here you go!

this is shown sideways & hanging off our deck railing. You are missing 2 rows in these photos.

Quilting pattern is from Urban Elementz. sort of a Fluer De lis type pattern. Still un-bound. I only finished it at 11PM on Saturday night.

This pattern is from Bonnie Blue Quilts. It's 6 blocks by 7. Again, you are seeing it sideways. also un-bound.

 I used a dark navy blue thread to TONE DOWN this chrome yellow. It was shockingly bright. I think I did okay. My daughter thinks so anyway.

 Back of the quilt. Quilting pantograph is from Urban Elementz.

Well that's it for now! I am off to start dinner. Sketti & sausage & garlic bread tonight ya'll.

That "On Eagles Wings" is a stunner. So much interesting stuff to look at! Lovely work, as usual.

Wow, what amazing quilts. I am most impressed! Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting. I enjoyed seeing your cutting table. Wish I could also only use a portion of the table's length, but I do seem to need it all for cutting out dresses.

Good luck on your hunt for a Pfaff 130. I do love mine. I once had a Juki 1541 industrial walking foot for upholstery and that is really the ticket if you are going to be doing a lot of that type of work. But the Pfaff is a good all-around machine that can handle occasional upholstery jobs much better than most domestic machines. And it's so pretty, in a brutal vintage way!
