Quilts Beyond Borders #3

I whipped up another Quilts Beyond Borders donation, this time using fleece as the backing and no padding. I like the pattern the quilting made, but I am not sure is the quilt is heavy enough. I am sure it can be put to good use though.

More Practice on the Voyager

My mom sent me a quilt top and all of the fixins' to quilt together on my Voyager machine. I had a few issues but still good practice. I found I prefer to use an 80/20 batting. It is less puffy and easier to work with than the poly I received. Good to keep learning these things! Plus I enjoy seeing the tops my mom makes! I believe she is calling this one "Boxes of Treats for Someone Sweet".

Sisters

My sister, Karen, came for a visit over the Fourth of July holiday. We got the biggest kick out of our similar purses we each had made. You'd would have thought we planned this but nope. Just genetics kicking in, I guess.
