10, 11 and baby birds
Let's start with the good stuff, the baby birds. Even though it's the same thing every year and all of the clutches basically look the same, I never tire of seeing this. But I couldn't stay too long because there was more quilting to do!
I got today's 2 quilts loaded and basted Wednesday and the quilted yesterday. This one was made by Sharon and might look familiar. Glenda made one like this a couple of months ago. Sharon saw it, liked it and decided to make one too. It's a simple design of 16-patch blocks but it's very striking.
I just couldn't do another set of quilts with the Square Spiral so I switched to Woven Wind for these 2. Woven wind is probably the fastest pantograph in my small collection to quilt.
I think I'm remembering correctly when I say that Gwendolyn made this quilt. It's a really nice layout and I love the green and black as a palette.
Inside the squares is this cook cheetah fabric. The color is more accurate in the full quilt photo. This one is showing a little too yellow.
The last 2 quilts are loaded and the first one is quilted! I got it done last night. I'll finish the last one for the month this morning while the chimney sweep is here. I think I'll take a couple of days break from quilting and do some sewing instead. I need to make some postcards, bind my one veterans quilt and work on the hiking backpack. After I finish those projects I'll get back to quilting because there's a baby quilt, the firefighter quilt and 3 queen size quilts waiting to be quilted. Lots to do!
This weekend is going to be about my sewing room projects though and I'll get back to the longarm next week.
I hope you have a great weekend.

All three of those quilts are lovely. I really like the old newspaper prints on the one still on the frame.

What size are the squares in the 16 patch block quilt? I love simple scrap quilts!

I love that cheetah fabric - makes a nice masculine quilt I think.

I never get tired of seeing the bird pictures. In my neighborhood there is a woodpecker and does it ever make a racket! Sometimes we get those giant Woody Woodpecker birds. They are cool to watch, but they are destructive! You are making great progress on getting the veteran quilts quilted.
