Quilting Marathon: Part 2

My “knocked down, dragged out” quilting marathon is OVER! I was exaggerating the “knocked down, dragged out” part. I turned in the last quilt for this year last Friday. For the first time in about nine months, I don’t have any fabrics waiting on the side for me to get started with another quilt project. I will have more fabrics coming after Christmas, but for now, I am enjoying working on a few projects for Miss Baby – more pictures later. But here is a sneak peek:

the first part of this quilting marathon, I have made:

1. Quilting Around the Applique Block for Quilter’s World (April 2011)

2. Summertime for Fons & Porter (sometime in 2011)

3. Blissful in the Clouds (special project, TBA)

4. Meet me at the Pumpkin Patch (special project, TBA)

5. Apple of my Eye (special project, TBA)

6. Spring Nestling (The Quilter, May 2011)

7. Purple Parade (The Quilter, May 2011)

8. Annabelle’s Ring of Flowers (The Quilter, May 2011) – this was the last one I completed. Unfortunately, I was in a rush to get this shipped, and my camera batteries were dead – so, no pictures. :(

9. I also did some free-lance designing work that I don’t have samples to show. Details will come later.

It’s been an unexpectedly busy year. But I felt good – like I had a good workout. :) Now, do tell me, which would you pick for your favorite project in this second part of my quilting marathon.

  1. Congrats on a good year of quilting. I see by your photos that on your applique you put something in behind them to make them stand out more. They all look good and I can’t wait to see the smocking on that dress for Miss Baby or should I say Missy Toddler?

    • Marlene,

      The “something in behind” is just either silk/wool batting unquilted within the applique area. :)

      I actually did finish one dress for Gwen last night, and she was able to wear it to church this morning. I hope to get some pictures tomorrow to post on either Tuesday or Wednesday.

      I am not quite ready to think of her as a toddler, she already is, technically. :)

      Hugs, Wendy

  2. Just stunning quilting!
    I have been very busy quilting for my customers too, lots had to be done for Christmas.I can have a breather for a wee bit then back into it in the New Year.

  3. I think I need a nap after seeing all those, lol! Spring Nesting is my favorite – I can’t wait for that one! Enjoy your break, hon, and Merry Christmas!

  4. It was always a pleasure to visit your beautiful blog with lovely quilts and little miss baby’s frocks…

    glad to know that you enjoyed every bit of playing with fabric…

    can’t wait to see the pretty frock WIP….

    Wishing you a blessed Christmas .

  5. Wendy you and baby (and the hub’s) have a wonderful Christmas. Your work inspires me to quilt using my dsm. Thank you for all you do.
    I can’t choose as each project is beautiful.

  6. Your work is so amazing they are all gorgeous. I do love the applique one but the quiling is to die for. You are one amazing young lady. Your Miss Baby is a lucky girl to have such a cleaver MOM. Merry Christmas take some time and maybe a little Bailey’s to just sit and enjoy your quiet time. Hugs.

  7. Wendy, they are all beautiful!! You should be so proud of what you have acomplished in such a short time. I don’t have Miss Baby and I can’t get near the work done that you do!!Happy Holidays to you and your family

  8. Oops! I mis typed. I meant to say that I liked Quilting Around the Appliqué Block for the appliqué and Spring Nestling for the quilting. ;)

  9. You didn’t ask for my favorite but here it is: Spring Nestling with my number 2 following closely behind: Purple Parade.

    Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and God Bless your family forever.

  10. I especially like “Spring Nestling”. It is very tweet, tweet, tweet.

    Put Bernina to rest; enjoy the holidays with Miss Baby and Hubby. And don’t forget to get batteries today!

  11. Annabelle’s Ring of Flowers looks like a fun to piece project. Of course they are all beauties. The nesting birds intrigue me.

  12. Well the Purple Parade is the one I want to piece. I was reading the title under the picture, and of course that was wrong. Oh well they are all beautiful.

  13. You have had a truly prolific quilting year!

    I am really looking forward to the “quilting around applique” piece in QW, thank god for an e-subscription! Applique is a new passion and I still need to work on gaining confidence in choosing quilting patterns so this will be a double treat to read!

  14. my favorite is the quilting around applique piece followed closely by the purple parade. All your work is beautiful and very inspiring
