FLIMSIES, TOPS, QUILTS, ...

As promised last week, here are some of my mum´s latest works.
The first one is a flimsy (but not for long, I know my mum!).


The second one is being quilted.
And the third one is finished. This one was a mystey from her quilt group. That means she did not know how it would look like at the end before she started. I think she did a good job with the color choices without having a clue of the end result.


Then this week, I finished my version of summer for the 4SQS. It is now on its way to ... far away!
We renovated my DS´s room this week so that I didn´t have much time for quilting. I did sew some curtains though so that I could spend some time in my sewing room! Next week should be calmer and I plan to machine quilt my scrappy stars top.

I wish you a nice week too!

Your mom makes beautiful quilts. That is simply the prettiest mystery quilt I have ever laid eyes upon. I passed up on a Christmas Mystery Quilt because none of the ones I saw were nearly that nice.

When you machine quilt are you using a standard size sewing machine, or a one with a longer arm? Mine is just a little Elna, but once I got the hang of it, it's not so hard. No free motion yet as I still haven't bought a darning foot. I'm just taking it one quilt at a time.

Your Mum's quilts are beautiful, Gwen! Thank you for sharing! They are all wonderful, but I LOVE the Ohio star and nine patch quilt!

Your summer 4SQS quilt is wonderful! Someone is going to be very happy!

Have fun renovating! Take care! Hugs...
