Child's Quilt Finished!

Just finished putting the binding on this little quilt.  Wanted to get a picture of it before it gets washed.  It will be donated to Project Linus.  Since I have a quilt on the frame, I did the quilting using the Bernina 830 using the walking foot in the ditch and free motion quilting around the paddles and outer border. 

Paddles Child Quilt

Since I kept calling the colored strips paddles, I decided I might as well name the quilt Paddles.  The writing on the label shows up much better than in the picture.  It reads "A Quilt For You Made With Love by Sue Halter Belton TX 2014".  After piecing all the blocks I ended up with one left over. Good thing because the red paddle in this block is sewn with wrong side out! Makes a great label, though, doesn't it?!!!

Keep on Stitchin'!!

Globetrotter BOM - July

Just realized I have not yet posted my July block for Pat Sloan's Globetrotter BOM.  I actually got this one done on the 4th of July.  Nice lazy day for the 2 of us.

This month, we traveled to Sydney, AU.  Oh if only that were true!!  You can still quilt along with me and Pat Sloan by visiting Pat here:  http://www.freequiltpatterns.info/globetrotting-2014-mystery-bom-by-pat-sloan.htm

My crazy colors of pink, gray, & green are actually looking pretty good together!

Baby or Child's Quilt

Got a top put together for a small quilt about 41" x 52".  It will eventually be donated to the Linus Project.  I really need to buy some kid friendly fabrics!

Baby/Child's Quilt top
When I first posted the block with leftover strips from the braid quilt I made, I said I had enough for about 30 blocks.  Duh!  I can't count, apparently.  Who knows what I was thinking!  I may quilt this on the Bernina 830 rather than load it on the frame.  It's small enough that I won't be cursing the whole time I'm manipulating under the machine harp.

Keep on Stitchin'!!
