More Quilts from Melinda

My quilting friend Melinda, sent me some more photos of quilts she has completed. I wanted to share them with yall.

Melinda has a new great niece who has a gray nursery. Did that throw Melinda off her game? Of course not.

She pieced the quilt and had it quilted by a professional who machine quilts. Now days they have a fancy machine that can really do lots of different quilting  designs.

Melinda always signs her quilts.  They are after all works of art!!

I have to admit Pink is one of my favorite colors for quilts.

I love this one and I think it is perfect for a little girl.

I am amazed at the piecing that goes into a quilt and that they all line up!! Yes, I tried quilting but I would pull my hair out if the seams were not just right so I gave us that hobby. Another reason my hat is off to Melinda who has really mastered this craft.

Happy Monday Friends. I have Miss Audrey with me this week so my posts may be short and sweet. We celebrated Baylor's 7th birthday over the weekend so I will post some pictures from the festivities. I can hardly believe our sweet boy is 7.

The quilts are lovely. I am making a very SMALL one for someone that Jeff works with. She was my former principal as well. She is having a granddaughter this next month, so I decided to use some of my stash. If I can get the edges without killing something today, then I plan to add a small pillow with it and that will be the end of that.

I love quilts even though I could never make one. These are so nice. Have fun this week and I look forward to Baylor's bdy photos.

They are indeed works of art! I craft quilts - not even in the same league as these real quilters! Ruth Ann and Sherry are both gifted with a needle and scissors. I think the cutting out is equally as important as the stitching.

I have a friend (lunch bunch Melody) who quilts and has one of those fancy machines. Even with the machine, it is an art that I admire and respect. The gray quilt is really nice! I love pink too. Enjoy your grandma time!!

I know you are enjoying this week! And the quilts are lovely. I always like the shabby chic pinks I see in bedroom decor! Hugs!
