Finished Quilt....no really

It seems like it has been months since I have posted a finished project, but here they come!!!

This is a quilt that I made as a sample for Gracie Lou's Quilt Shoppe ( it opens Monday!!) The pattern is Thimble Blossoms bloom, and the fabric line is Garden Fantasy by The Red Rooster.

This is a fairly simple pattern that doesn't take a lot of piecing skill, and the appliques are fused on.

I machine quilted it in a flower meander pattern.

I would definitely recommend this pattern to a new quilter because of it's simplicity, or to an experienced quilter because it is quick and fun.....almost instant quilty gratification!

My next projects are the Sabrina Tunic, and Craft Apple Car Organizer.

Not to mention my new stash of fabric that is taunting me from the sidelines

When in the HECK did you get time to make that quilt with all the goings on of the 4th? What did you do with those SIX (6) children that are all over the place while you were sewing and quilting? You are absolutely AMAZING!!! MUM

That quilt is crazy cute. I've never quilted but am always tempted. You've inspired me!

This is so, so cute! I am taking a "machine quilting" class in August and I have so many design ideas in mind. It's amazing how simple the piecing is, and how much the quilting part pulls it all together!
