I've finally finished quilts that were meant for last year's Christmas gifts Tongue Hey, I'm still within the 12 days of Christmas...right?

I'm addicted to applique and have fallen in love with Amy Bradley designs. What a labor of love these have been. I've been renting time on a gammill longarm quilting machine which has been fun and the motivation to finally finish all these.

Hope they make you smile as much as they make me smile!

I did 2 Dazzling Dog quilts. One a twin and one a large double.




A twin made with the Kitty City patterns. These were really fun.



Sad to have to say it but this Irish Chain top has been sitting in my closet since, well let's just say since the Irish Chain in a Day book first came out. Yipes. But it's finally done! Very pink and quilted with a loopy heart design. It's a queen size.



Here are some close ups of some favorite blocks.

I totally love those.  I would love to say I want to try one, but I think they are out of my skill and patience range.  Wow....incredible.

Thanks for all the compliments. They really weren't difficult just very time consuming. Even with the steam a seam and machine stitching. I ran out of patience and had to take a break that's one reason they didn't make it for last Christmas Wink

Those are so totally AMAZING! I love all of the applique, you do the most professional looking stuff I have seen on here! Way to go funthreads, I am sure they are going to be well received. I had to hit the "rocks" on all of this beautiful work.

Totally amazing!  You have great skill and patience.  I'd love to try something like this, but I need more instant gratification.  Like I'd start with a quilt and end up with a pillow made out of one block. 

Gorgeous, how do I get on your Christmas list??!
