Did Some Quilting

Last weekend I finally got some quilting done. I think I posted these tops before, but now they are fully finished quilts. When I send tops away for someone else to quilt them, it's easy to part with them. But when I finish them myself, I fall in love with them, and I have a hard time giving them away. I do it, but it's hard. It's funny how much cuddlier it becomes when it's quilted, and it even makes a huge improvement from being quilted to putting on the binding. It becomes a "sealed"unit and so great!

OH, I love this quilting hobby of mine!! It would be fun to see all the quilts I have ever made in a big pile somewhere and paw through them all and have happy reunions with them all. I hope a lot of them are being cuddled and loved by kids all over the world.

These two quilts are headed to Project Linus, St. Paul MN chapter.

They look great! I agree about getting excited about the transformation from top to cuddly quilt. Sometimes it is so hard to give them away!

Good going Carol! I agree - a top that's just soso becomes something wonderful when it's quilted and bound - every time!

I hope you are saving the photos of your quilts somewhere. It isn't the same as "pawing" thorugh a pile but it does take up less storage space!

Great quilts. I'm sure they will be loved.
