6 quilted mini quilts

As promised I am loading up the mini quilts which I did with Michele Foster,    think I have been on a great journey quilting these.


                                               Bear necessities

                                                         

                                                           back of bare necessities


carousel rides



                                                       back of carousel rides



                                                               penny candy



                                                                   back of penny candy



                                                                     Moroccan tiles



                                                                     back of Moroccan stars





                                                                square vortex

     

                                                                Twinkling stars



back of twinkling stars



all minis apart form carousel rides measure 24" square   carousel rides is 27.5" square.No photo of the back of square vortex as I used a very patterned fabric for the backing and the quilting does not show up on it, also if I had thought more about it would have done more quilting but this is the first one I attempted.  So good to have them finished at last,  now not sure what to do with them.

So well done. Congratulations. I love both your quilts and the quilting of them. Beautiful. You may put them on a wall, one after one throughout the year.

Besides the obviously excellent designs and color choices……the quilting motifs make each small piece absolutely sing!!

Debra said...

Your quilting looks wonderful!!! Great job on these minis. Great idea to get some practice in or to try some new quilting motifs without committing to a larger quilt.

Séverine said...

Your quilting is beautiful specially the carousel rides.

Monica said...

Congratulations, lots of great finishes, Margaret! Set up a hanger for one in a corner somewhere, and switch them out regularly. Then they will always feel new!

Boud said...

These are lovely! I think I like the minis best of all. And your quilting designs are so well thought out.

Your quilting is really lovely Margaret, I especially like the first one but they are all great. You definitely need to have these where you can admire them every day!

Oh my word Margaret what fabulous quilting just seen your last post do not know how I missed it Did Sal like the Quilt? As for wadding not sure they say that the hobbs is easier to quilt with and sometimes warmer than a lot of the polyesters I have been using fleece as a backing and the "wadding" which is okay but it does not feel finished to me. Have a great day Pippa

Anita said...

Beautiful mini quilts; I love your quilting!

Maria said...

The little quilts are fabulous Margaret!

Lady Locust said...

They look great. Also, love seeing the back so the quilting shows up so well. What fun designs too:)

Suztats said...

Wonderful quilts, Margaret! I liked seeing the quilting on the backs. Hmmm, I wonder if some of them could be put together to make a lap quilt.

Annet said...

Lovely quilts, you're very good in machine quilting. They are so neat!

Hello Margaret,
I am absolutely overwhelmed by seeing your many miniquilts - which in my opinion are not at all "mini" - they have all a considerable size. And your quilting is moreover embellishing the interesting designs. You must be so proud - and relieved - that you finished them so successfully. Now, what to do with them... haha. Mine usually land either on a wall which I freed from an older quilt ---- or in the drawer. I hope the latter will not be the case with yours.

You are full of delightful surprises. These little quilts are charming and the quilting is excellent, especially on the first one. Congratulations on six finishes!

JennyPennyPoppy said...

Beautifully done mini quilts Margaret and thanks for taking pictures of the backs too. You must be so pleased with how they all look. The back of Bare Necessities looks pretty amazing.

Diana @ Red Delicious Life said...

They all look wonderful Margaret! Love seeing the backs of them, makes it easier to see the quilting detail. Great job.

Isn't it a great feeling to finish off a project ? Wonderful mini quilts. I've never quilted before and have not used one, so I am at a loss to suggest some ideas on what to do with them.

Sarah said...

Your mini quilts are all beautiful! And your quilting is amazing, you must be delighted! I'm sure you will find a good home for them.

I like how you have done the random quilting lines for these quilts . Hopefully I am no longer a no-reply blogger. I checked with a few others and they weren't getting me as that. Hopefully it is ok now...
