I finished some stuff recently...

It's been awhile since I posted any quilt pictures. Here are some small things that I recently finished:

I posted a picture of this back in April when it was just squares up on my design board. This was a gift for a co-worker's baby shower.


I made another "Waffle Time" table runner. The first one is here. I do like this pattern and I'm sure I'll be making more of them. Anyhow, here's the latest:


Both quilts above were done entirely by machine. Here's one that I did entirely by hand. It is only 15" x 15", so it didn't take very long to make it.


I have a friend who re-did her kitchen and collects roosters for it. I found this rooster fabric and knew I had to make something for her. Just because.

I do do something besides read all the time. Ha!

  1. Phyllis,
    Your quilts are beautiful!

    I wanted to send you a message last night about your book reviews but I was rudely interupted by the tornado sirens! I did reserve some of your suggestions, I'll let you know how I liked them.

    I am very impressed by your site and plan to visit often!

    See you next week
    Tammy

  2. Phyl, lovely pieces! :) My fave is the Waffle Time piece ... the colour combination is great. Is the centre material silverish?

    It's very nice of you to make that rooster piece for your friend. Very bright and breezy ... I'm sure she was very pleased with it. :)

  3. Thanks ladies!

    Jace, the Waffle Time is made entirely of batiks; the center fabric is a gray/brown on a cream background. It has a nice sheen to it, which is probably why it looks silverish. But it's more brown.

    And yes, Lisa was surprised and happy with her roosters.
