Quick Quilt Quilted

After some woosah moments...
The sewing has gotten better. By now, I am a pro and super quick at rethreading! Ha! Lucky,lucky me, I didn't have any tension issues. I decided that getting it all quilted in one day was not as important as my sanity. I got my quick quilt quilted in three days. I'm okay with that.  If you follow me on Instagram or Flickr, you have seen it.

 
Plus, everyone but my cute lil girl had the flu. Boo! I am doing much better and Jared, but hubby is feeling green still. Yuck!
 
 
 
I inverted this row of pinwheels on the back. I love how they float.


 
I agree with some others, the quilting adds another dimension to the quilt. I really love when that happens. (Wasn't planned.)

 
This is the story on this, I was given this main wall fabric that is in the room from a bee member. It's a theme challenge with crazy fabric, and you have to use the whole yard. I drew my theme, and it was winter. Darn. So, I jumped on wallpaper. It had to be at least 36x36. So, it has high ceilings. Other members had a year to do this. I had a month. Go me, I just finished it up today.


Here's a close up of the tree. I received some cute little light buttons. I used them on the tree. I reused this cute twine on the presents. I put a bow on the wreath. I think it turned out pretty good. Hubby says, "I don't think it's ugly anymore." Score again. :)

 
I also had to come up with a stocking that I fill for a bee member. It has some cute piping at the top. Now, I have to make some little goodies to go in it. We are doing a stocking swap. Any ideas???
Blog at ya later.

    1. Thanks, we did a mini quilt show. I didn't get a ribbon, but there was tons of food and exchanged stockings. It was pretty awesome. I like the back on that pinwheel quilt too. At least, the pressure is off on making things on a tight deadline.

  7. Hi, Yvonne! It was great to meet you at the ECMQG Christmas party today. It was fun seeing your quilt in person then reading about it on your blog! You obviously belong to another guild as well, since ECMQG didn't do that particular challenge. Sounds fun though! I hope you will join us at ECMQG again! I'm following your blog now. =)

    1. Hi, Wendy! Thanks for stopping by my blog and following. It was really great meeting you as well. I love what you've been working on. It's fantastic! I do love seeing things in person. Sometimes, the photos just don't do it justice. I was the Pensacola Quilt Guild, and I am in a bee. The theme quilt is for the bee. I will be shopping at westwood acres from now on too! I will be coming back to ECMQG.It's an awesome group, and I can't wait for the next sew day! I hopped over and followed you too. :)
