Spring to finish

Well I took the Spring to Finish challenge. I had so much on my plate this month and finished a lot things. I also added a lot of things. Especially some new fabric...yummm.

So here are a couple finishes that you have not seen yet. These two quilts were pieced by my mother and quilted by me. I am working on my free motion quilting as I just started doing it a couple months ago.
This first quilt is an auction quilt that will be at her local quilt show this year. I tried stippling for the first time inside the blocks. We also embellished it with a few beads.
Here is a close up of one of the blocks.Here is the other quilt I quilted, my mother pieced. It is probably twin size. I just meandered on this one because I could not think of any other way to quilt it.

Finally, this is a crazy nine patch quilt that I didn't like because I used a sheet to piece it together and didn't like the way it turned out.....so I practiced machine quilting. That's why you see a few different styles on it. It was fun to practice :)
I actually like the back on it this. I didn't have enough green so this is the result!Some of the other finishes this month were, 3 tops (wonky stars, my moms batik quilt, and mod sampler) my purse, 2 quilt for kids quilts, 2 crayon totes...I think that's it. Oh and lots of fabric added to the stash :)

Umm... your quilting is fabulous! You quilt like a pro, not someone who's been doing it for a few months! I love all 3 quilts, especially the crazy 9 patch one.
