Sunday Quilting

Recently I have wanted to finish up some projects that have been in slow progress for some time.  

The Country Inn Blackbird applique quilt has come back from the quilter and I put the binding on it this morning.   I am so pleased with how it came out, initially I didn't like it because of the large block size, but quilted it looks so much better.   I like my applique quilts all over quilted because I prefer the appliques to be firmly quilted down.  I have never cared for the "puffy" applique look.

Another project that has been on the shelf for some time was the Country Quilts n Bears Christmas mystery from 2014.    I had ordered the kit even though I couldn't attend the class, so of course it took me a while to get this done !   I like the bright Christmas look, it is fresh and happy.   My kitchen has been grey/aqua for a while, and this year I plan to hang this one up there.
Here it is, ready for quilting.

Otherwise I have been doing some handsewing, which is my favorite anyway.   I am stuffing the large boutis and have neglected it this summer, it is so hot here that it's hard to have heavy items on your lap !  I started a hexie project from a Quiltmania issue, and am enjoying that - making hexies is addictive !

Happy Sunday Sewing !

Liebe Heather,
der Applique-Quilt ist wunderschön und sieht fast aus, wie gemalt. Mir gefällt es auch sehr, dass die Applikationen nicht aufpoppen. Darüber habe ich nicht nachgedacht, bevor ich deinen Post gelesen habe, aber genau das aufpoppen hat mich eigentlich immer ein bisschen gestört :-)
Der Weihnachtsquilt gefällt mir auch sehr gut. Weihnachten muss nicht immer grün, rot und gold sein !

Liebe Grüße
