Wallhanging finished

Almost forgot to post pictures of Barbara's
wall hanging.
She made this for her daughter and it goes with
the big green star quilt.
Her daughter picked out the border fabric and
Barbara picked out all of the other fabrics.
Glide thread in Prickle Pear.
Two layers of Hobbs 80/20.
I wasn't going to do a lot of heavy quilting since this is a wall hanging,
but look...
before background fill
I took this off the frame, but didn't really like that puffy
hourglass shape.
Soooo...I put it back on the frame and look at the difference a
little background fill makes, not micro, but just a little
Much better, see the difference.
All freehand on my Millie.
Have a good weekend, I'll be headed to AQS in Chattanooga.

A finish and a new one started

Finished the "Which Witch's Boot"
 The quilt maker said do what you want.
So I had fun.
SoFine black on the borders and white every where else.
Two layers batting, Hobbs 80/20 and cotton.
Started on a signature wedding quilt.
She asked that there be no quilting on the signatures.
Tried to explain they would be puffy. 
Don't really know if I like the signature block like this,
 might have to come up something.
The bride had everyone sign a block at the wedding, then I pieced the top.
Some guest didn't understand not to write pass the blue line
(I marked each block for the seam allowance)
Have a nice week.
