A Little Quilt and A Bigger Quilt

 I can finally share the baby quilt in which I used some of the lime and black flying geese. 😁


James outlined the major elements of the panel in a thread that disappears in most places. Then he used that wonderful lime thread for the scrollwork.


 There are dragons in the two upper corners...


And a wizard in each of the bottom corners.


The end product measured about 36 inches by 46 inches. 

The bigger quilt is one I made for myself. Over time I made 10" Wrench blocks out of the last of some of my more favorite prints. Consequently I refer to it as my Final Wrenches quilt. 


James stipple quilted the background areas of this one so the individual blocks would stand out.


I used a rainbow stripe for the binding. 


This one measures about 60 x 80 inches. It' currently on my bed, making me very happy. 😊
