Wall quilts R Us

I promised pictures and pictures you shall have. Let's not notice that they were promised on September 30th, shall we?

This was pieced in, gulp, 1998. It was never quilted because that was the time where I ran out of longarmers and couldn't find anyone whose work I trusted. Lo and behold, this year I found June, bless her little heart, and she did lovely plume-y swirls on all the star blocks. Love it.

Here is the star wall quilt top I completed before my trip home. Better photo, more true colors. It's adorable.

This little beauty is SOOOO not my style you would need DNA evidence to link it to me at all! But it's bright and pretty and I like it a lot. The quilting design is still up in the air. It's got so much going on, I may just have it quilted in the ditch.

Here is the Thimbleberries Christmas wall quilt I pieced in 2002 and never had quilted. It's going to be sent to trusty June just as soon as I can call her, along with its other quilty brothers. That'll keep her busy until New Year's! Let's think of it as her own personal longarmer's Christmas Club account.

This is the summer wall quilt from the 2002 Thimbleberries Club, made with my fabrics. It looks very like the model, but the plaids are brighter.

Here is the fall Thimbleberries Club quilt. All those tendrils are hand appliqued, by the way. I just don't like machine applique. It takes a little longer, but I'm happier with the results. Love the pieced pumpkin.

The spring Thimbleberries quilt is still in the works. Lots of appliqued leaves.

Lovely quilts. I especially like the Star Wall quilt! The colors are so pretty.
How nice that you have a long-armer that you can trust you lovely things with.

Wow, these are great. My favorite is the 2002 Thimbleberries made with your fabric, but I like them all....I'm glad you finally found a quilter that you trust. I have found one too and hopefully, by this time next year, I can get all my tops quilted. I still like to hand quilt but I want to see these quilts in my lifetime! Hugs, Linda
