Friday Night Finishes...

Some might say I need to get a life but let me say this... I do have one. Matter of fact I am usually so busy I forget stuff. However here lately I have been making time to do things that I would like to do. Here are a couple of scrappy lappy wheel chair quilts I finished up tonight.

 I plan to begin working in the nursing home/ shut in ministry of our parish this June. This is my last year to teach CCD classes (7th grade). I have been teaching a long time and have just been feeling led to make some changes. I have been told there is a great need in this area. I thought I would see how many lap quilts and such I could get made by then using up some scraps.

 The crazy quilt one is the first time I have ever made a quilt in this style. I don't have an embroidery machine but do have a beautiful old black Singer 319W so I was able to make some stitching across it to mimic the old crazy quilt blocks.  I was not sure how to quilt it so I kind of drew with my Juki quilting machine and stippled on the sashing.

 So I used three different machines to make these little quilts and they are not even fancy! lol Hope you all got to do something you wanted this lovely Friday!


  1. I am in awe of these quilts! They are wonderful and the quilted detail is such fun. I love the little quilted bird!
    Have a super weekend!

  2. I really like the first quilt, but that second one is just fabulous! It looks wonderful, you must have such a good eye for putting the scraps and stitches together. Blessings on the new work!

  3. Love your quilts, and you are really good at the machine quilting! I stick to cotton batting because the crinkliness conceals my wonky stitching, lol!
