A Few New Quilts

I have recently finished up some quilts that I have had laying around. It seems like I am really good at getting the tops done but drag my feet on the quilting. I try and hand quilt at one quilt a year and would like to do more but the frame takes up so much room that one is about all I get done. I do not own a quilting machine and never got the hang of quilting on my Bernina so I take mine to a local machine quilter and love her work. This first quilt is a block of the month from several years ago, in fact the quilt shop is out of business. They offered this in two color ways and I made both but have since sold the one that was made with brights. This is the Batik color way.
All the squares are quilted with a Celtic motif.


Celtic Knot

This next is from the Michael Miller Bird Swing line and a pattern from

This last one is from an old Fons and Porter magazine and uses reproduction prints from the 20's-40's.
Dogwood and leaf motif.
