STICKING WITH THE FAMILIAR

I decided to stick to stippling, it fits comfortably and well....gotta get these baby quilts done.



Plain ole stippling and boy do I love to stipple, added a few loops to this one.



To think I was going to just throw this top away!!! Had a great day stippling...no ripping out at all...whohoooo....
This quilt has a flannel back, I thought it would just slide over the table but I was soooo wrong...I had to really work this quilt.

These tumblers were cut out with my Go cutter when I first got it.




Finished the binding on my son's quilt.




I have to work on a few things tomorrow that I can't show, one of the projects is on the towel swap I am in....the next is a design for a quilt....so....things may be quiet tomorrow.

It looks like you and the new machine are getting along well. I love to stipple quilt too. You really did accomplish a lot today and I can't wait to see your next projects.

Penny said...

Wow! Gorgeous quilt! Love stippling too but have yet to try it! Maybe I should make more mug rugs..scrappy ones..to practice :)

Great job. Like you I love stippling. I'd rather do a quilt that way now than just straight quilting. Again that material is awesome. Hugs

wackywoman said...

Wow, you are good!

Sherry said...

Boy have you been busy. I only wish I could get that much done in a day. Even if I had a day off I could not get that much done. Maybe you can give me a few tricks.LOL

Terry said...

Your quilts are all so pretty! But I love that blue one! :0)

JustCindy said...

WOW! Another tremendously productive day. Congratulations! The baby quilts are especially nice--very effective borders.

Yvette said...

How much coffee do you drink a day? You get more done than anyone I know. I love it all!!!

Winona said...

Barb, these all look great. Some day I am going to learn to stipple or meander or whatever it is called. LOL I love all of them, but that tumbler quilt really caught my attention. I think they look so neat. I also love stars, so enjoyed seeing the one for your son. You have really been busy.

hetty said...

Wow! You've been busy! Cute baby blankets.

Cyndi said...

They all look great, Barb! You do such a wonderful job.

XOXO,

Cyndi

Wow looks like you have been busy! The first 2 quilts are so striking with the white contrast. I love you choice of fabrics. I want to make a tumbler quilt also. Are they hard to put together? I saw somewhere that you could use the cardboard that comes with charm squares to make a pattern for a tumbler and it had very little waste.

Cheryl Willis said...

they all look great, I love the green drunkards path, I just got the die and am anxious to cut and sew, hope mine turns out as good as yours. cw

Jeni said...

you have been very busy well done

Mary L. said...

Boy, you get so much done. Love the quilts. Interesting..I call it stippling when it is very tiny and meandering when it is larger like this. Am I the only one?

West Michigan Quilter said...

Oh, my gosh, you have really been busy. Love the quilts. I am like you in that I think I'll do this or that and stew about it a few days, then end up doing stippling. It's easy and familiar. Can't go wrong with that!

LuAnn said...

You've been really productive and have a lot finished. Great job! I love your stippling.

Cathy said...

Lovely finishes here Barb, I'm glad you didn't throw that green one out either, it is gorgeous! I too love stipple, It feels so good. xo

SewCalGal said...

Beautiful. I will never tire of the Drunkards Path die used for baby quilts. Love every one and these fabrics are spectacular, as are your other quilts. Difficult to pick my favorte, not that you asked, but I can't wait to hear what your son thinks of his quilt. It is spectacular. Great job!

Hope you are feeling better.

Practice, Practice, Practice....you are becoming SUCH a PRO!! :) Your quilts look great -bonus on no ripping out!!! :)

Melissa said...

I love the circles!! I also love the choice of stippling. In fact, stippling is may favorite to do as well as to sit under.

kpaints said...

And boy you deserve..quiet...you have accomplished a lot and I am so amazed at the difference when they are finished...so lovely another fantastic job! Jobs!!!!

Susan In Texas said...

I love to stipple too and I can't get any of my bee buddies to try it. They expect to be perfect from the get go, and I told them it doesn't work like that. Yours is terrific. I know what you mean about flannel, it's almost as bad as Minkee. You really develop your upper body strength. I'm REALLY impressed with your productivity, and it all looks fabulous!

Happy quilting,
Susan in Texas

PS I think I got Pierre Lapin done, but I'm not sure. lol

Rumi said...

Looks wonderful Barb. Love the cheery Samoan fabrics!

Debi said...

Great job Barb, I especially love the green one! Stippling and meandering are my two favorite ways to quilt!

Ivory Spring said...

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

Oh Barb, they are wonderful and if it works so well for you why stop!! I love your drunkards path quilts, I have that die and tried to make the block, not a pretty site!!!!

Joanna said...

They are all beautiful quilts. Don't throw any of your quilt tops away. You're too good a quilter.

andsewon said...

All are super great! I am still working on my stipple or 'stomple' as I call it!Now I can straight line with the best of them ...um well maybe not but I do a mean one... haha!
Quiet is good some times.

Looking good and I can see that your GO cutter has been having a workout too. Love the Samoan fabrics in the blue piece....
