More Quilted Postcards

Dear Readers,

I have been working on my Magnolia Quilt for the challenge but am not quite ready to write about that yet.  I have to quilt the border, block it, bind it put an hanging sleeve on it, and then I will be done.  Unfortunately, I have not been feeling great so I have been having a hard time getting myself to work on it.  I hope I finish.  I am not happy with my quilting. But I will preserve.  I just hope, no one looks at the back.  There are 13 fractured magnolias on the front and I have quilted on all the white part, I really think the leaves need it to, but not sure there will be time for that.

I did a couple of post cards to help practice my free motion quilting, since I was using my small machine instead of the one I usually use and I wanted to make some for some friends of Celeste, that were having birthdays or just needed a little pick me up.  First I made one for Luke, the guy she has been seeing, for his birthday.  Hope his birthday was all he hopes for and for many more in the future. He works for Upslope.

Then I made one for Jenna, a friend of Celeste's from work, that I met during Thanksgiving and I learned she is a huge Bears fan.  She and I really hit it off.  She is very much like Celeste, and is smart, fun loving and so cute.

I want to do some writing on the magnolia quilt around on the black inner border, but I am scared.  Maybe tomorrow.

Sew long for tonight.

  1. Your magnolias look great. Keep on keeping on! I'm just now quilting mine too. ... I really like that little Upslope postcard. Reminds me of fresh and modern quilts.
