My hopes were to get These Quilted. I accomplished much more! Both have binding as well! So excited. I must add labels and they will be in the finish category!
The pink anchor quilt was easily quilted in a fun circular spiral using the walking foot. I'm brand new to quilting so I am taking much pride in this finish!
The "It's A Boy!" was also quilted in a spiral consisting of straight lines. Aren't those little duckies just the most adorable ever?!
Head over to Elm Street Quilts and view all the other Fantabulous! Successes for the month of June!

From Dec 21, 2016 until June 20, 2017 Pat Sloan hosted a 25 block sampler she named the Winter Solstice. I joined her and Many other sewists in a journey. I am so tickled with the Christmas vibes I get from my completed top!
I used a small stack of Lynette Anderson Designs Fabric from RJR Fabrics called Festive Fun. Very Festive indeed, look at the details in her drawings on the fabrics!
There are snowmen, Santas, puppies and kittens, mistletoe and holly. See the line and a few of Lynette's projects with Festive Fun Here.
For the 2.5" blocks I used all scrap so it was fun to see how the final look turned out. I adore the little French lady. And the daisies made an appearance some how in the lighter blocks. So whimsical and I adore it!
The "Precious Fabric" star was my favorite of all the blocks even though I chose to use a bold red instead of a precious fabric.
You can create your own Winter Solstice, find all the patterns and setting at Pat's Blog. They are Free! And Fun! Share your projects with her!
