New quilts and cushions - BEEN BUSY

Hello all,

I don't even know where the time went, how can it be almost the end of June? Where is the Spring gone? well, I guess you know I need to apologize again for  neglecting the blog.

I have been so busy though and working endlessly on my WIPs. I have recently finished another 10 quilts (will not post all today, will show you the others soon) and 4 cushions.

Here are just a few finished quilts for now. The first is a baby quilt made with echo fabrics by Lotta Jansdotter and some solids. I absolutely adore this quilt. The colors are so vivid and is just feels amazing, the texture of the quilting is lovely.

The next quilt is my finished houses quilt. Yes, I finally cut into my Tufted Tweets stash, after years. I think it was the first ever full FQ bundle of a collection I bought and the first fabrics I bought from the US. So long ago now. Am quite proud of myself for finally using some. I keep drooling over them and never actually use them (one of the reasons I had to join Fabricaholics Anonymous)

And the Chairs quilt, again using some Tufted Tweets (I am on a roll here, you see). Just like the Houses quilt this quilt is actually a bit larger, more of a lap quilt size and I love the effect, I also used some Kona cotton solids which really match the prints very well. Quilted is in a swirly pattern which I don't use very often, but I really like the effect. It doesn't always have to be stippling, no?

All 3 quilts are in the shop. I hope you like them.

I will show you some of the other quilts soon, so watch this space. I also need to share my soon to be finished craft room with you. SOON.

Love, Nadine
