And here they are!
My new baby:
And what I've made on it:
Well, I finally quilted the fall mini quilt swap. This'll be mailed with 4 other swaps this coming week, either tomorrow or Tuesday, depending on when I can get out of the house for a bit after Christmas clean-up.
Close up of the quilting:
Finally quilted. I chose to use the new machine and do a leaf motif in the white parts of the quilt, and then do swirly lines on the diagonal through the yellowy/orange squares.
I am totally thrilled with how this one came out. I only hope my partner is as thrilled as I am.
I have just enough of the gold/yellow to make myself one.. this one hurts to part with.. it really does.
This one I did hand applique for the leaf and some new decorative stitching around it. It's for Raesha on Flikr, but I'm still waiting on her address to send it to her.
And the back:
This is the back of the mini for Raesha. I just loved the center fabric and it was gold and brown and just "fall-like" to me.
And I kept playing more with the new machine. I signed up for the January STUD quilt swap with the theme of Rainbows:
I actually made my mini's top.. can you guess what I did with these fabrics?? :D
More pictures of Christmas coming soon - gotta get the photos off of my mom's camera and then I'll pick some good ones to post here!
