WIP Wednesday #31

Posted by Tanya

Additional borders were added to this 25 square rainbow quilt top to make it a little larger.  Most likely this quilt will go to Richard's Mom, for Christmas. It is basted and ready for quilting. 

The purple and pink quilt top from the Beginner QAL is finished.  Richard sewed the two outside borders on it and everything else was completed  by me. I still need to finish Richard's two that he started and start another for Rebecca for Christmas.  He does much better at all one type of block, than a slow based sampler. It is basted and ready for quilting. It is also a Christmas gift, for my sister.      

The plus quilt is about half way done with quilting.  We decided that it is going to be part of James' (17 yr old) Christmas present, good thing he never reads our blog. Richard was trying to decide what color of thread to use on this quilt and was having a hard time deciding, so I helped him out and told him to use a variegated thread we had on hand. 

This pile of fabric is for the pinwheel quilt for my Mom.  We found a block that is made of half square triangles, so no weird angles.  We are going to do half of the blocks in tan and half in the light green.  The plan is for me to start cutting it this weekend, if not sooner. 
This blue train rag quilt has been sewn, but not cut yet.  It is for a baby shower on Saturday, unless it doesn't get done and I end up using one out of our Etsy store. 
 This bright rag quilt with blue, yellow, green, and lizards is for another Nephews Christmas gift. I have three of nine rows done. He is four and likes all thing creepy and crawly. Some have asked why so many rag quilts.  They are easy and something I dare do. They are also what we have sold in our Etsy store. I am comfortable with beginning piecing, but not yet up to quilting a top. I have to give Richard time to catch up on the quilting. 

 This is a Halloween panel that Richard was having fun trying out different stitches on his machine.  He still needs to bind it, so we can hang it on our wall, before Halloween in over. The ghastly quilt for my other sister is on temporary hold, because I ran out of pins to baste with.  The zig zag quilt Richard is mad at, is patiently waiting for me to unpick the binding and prepare a new one. 
I think about every free moment between now and December 24th is going to be spent sewing, to try to get these and the other planned quilts/gifts ready.

Love the Plus quilt with Reunion! Can't go wrong with reunion! and I like how you've quilted it, accentuating the plus shape.

great job on the purple & pink sampler! I like to quilt with varigated threads rather than one solid color.
