Down but not out

I have been absent, but not necessarily quiet.  I've been busy finishing off a few more items that have been sitting around for some time.  One of them was a top that I made with "leaders and enders" that has been sitting in my FMQ pile.  For those of you that don't know what leaders and enders are, you can go here to find out.

I did free motion quilt it, but not very tightly.  I wanted it to be rather cuddly so that it could drape nicely on someone's lap.   It was donated as a "Community Cares" quilt to my guild.

Another pieced top that had also been patiently waiting its turn for some quilting is this little "I Spy" quilt .

Again this one was quilted very simply in the ditch, bound and is now also in my guild's Community Cares chest waiting to be donated.

Now I'm off to see what else my studio has been hiding from me.

Lovely quilts for your guild's Community Cares chest! I particularly like the first one and how you've photographed it so beautifully on the rocks.

two great quilts! Now next time I want you to break loose of the straight stitching :)
