April Quilting Projects

I've been working on a birthday quilt for my grandson. His birthday isn't until September but I wanted to finish the quilt and enter it in our local Art Hop here in Murray.

The panel is by Robert Kaufman, "Starry Night".

I added the yellow border then pieced Snail Trail blocks to surround the panel and border. Time was short, so I quilted it myself using free motion on the panel.

My 12 inch quilt project for May is now complete. This one features a flower pot and lots of colorful spring flowers and a butterfly.

I stayed up late last night and finished quilting and adding the binding.

Thanks for stopping by to see my April projects - Judy.

  4. Hi Judy, those are great projects! If you get a chance, why don't you link up to Free Motion Mavericks? We'd love to have you join the fun :-)

  5. Both are wonderful quilts, but I have to admit, those flowers on the second one really sing to me!

  6. That new little banner is SEW cute!!!

  7. Your Starry Night quilt is beautiful. The dark snails trails border is PERFECT! You also did a beautiful job quilting the May Flowers quilt.
