I sewed like a crazy person on this past long weekend. I was able to finish two projects. the first one I worked on was my Great-Granny squares little quilt. It measures 42" square. My plan was to do spirals all over in free motion but I changed my mind and went with wavy lines.
|This is the stitch I used. Love it!|
|"My Dotty Great-Grannie" (named because I used polka dot fabric in each block as well as for backing and binding).|

I also finished the lobster quilt for my Dad. I used the same thread and needle, and again, it quilted up like a dream.It measures 44" x 54" I will probably give it to him next weekend so I will have to get a pic of him with his new quilt.
|Backing used is two of my favourite Maywood fabrics called "No Girls Allowed" full of bubbles. the strip down the centre is leftover 2 1/2 inch strips.|

My next project will be the quilt for my son, Alexander. I started cutting out the strips today. I wanted to try a pattern called "Tumbling Cubes" from the book, Modern Basics, by Amy Ellis. I am using the same colour scheme. A minimalist pattern, kind of like my son.
I am linking up with The Needle and Thread Network so stop by and see what everyone is working on or has completed. Lots of inspiration.
