Weekend Quilting

I would like to post the pictures of the quilt tops I got pieced at Mrs. Miller's Cabin in Charm OH. It is a lovely place to be with good friends that share your passion for quilting.  We were lucky to have about 6" of snow too. 

First photo is my #5 UFO Tumbler Quilt.  I am leaving this one unquilted and adding it to my Etsy sight.  Hopefully someone will want to hand quilt it (or machine quilt it also.)

My second project was the Bric-a-Brac scrap quilt.  This comes out of a Jelly Roll quilt book that I cannot remember the name of.  I used my scrap 2 1/2" squares and 2 1/2" strips.  I only had to purchase the black inner border and the tangerine outer border.  Can you say bright?
I have fabric in my stash for the backing.  The fabric is red, gold, purple and green interwoven.  Binding will be black.

Thirdly, I finished piecing this homespun quilt top.  We already have one in our house, but Jeff and I seem to fight over who gets to use it.  I made this one one row wider.  I just love it.  I just picked up the pieces and sewed them together.  I made four patches first.  The backing is also pieced homespun fabrics from mine & Dora's stash.  Binding is a funky grey color.  The binding was all I purchased for this quilt. 

Finally, I finished piecing this beautiful Blue Batik Tile quilt. I have bought the outer border fabric and will get it attached in the near futrue.  This is one of my favorite quilt tops to complete. I still have to decide on the backing fabric, but the binding will be the same as the final border.  This was made out of fat quarters I bought at NQA in Columbus, OH a few years ago.

We all had a wonderful time with good fellowship and good food.  We even ate healthy which I think is unusual for a quilter.  I am looking forward to October when we have Mrs. Miller's rented again.
