A little change of pace this week: Mama S AKA Maria Sangria is guest posting today, rather than my usual post tomorrow. She’s sharing her first two quilts:
Hello fellow quilters! I am rozsamaria’s mother. Rozsamaria got me started in quilting a couple of years ago. I made two quilts with her help and the help of some lovely ladies from Empire Quilt guild. The first quilt I made was a small dog themed quilt for my husband. I did a combination of machine and hand quilting. I machine quilted straight lines going across the quilt and around the border that goes around the middle of the quilt. I hand quilted dog bones in the corners. My husband loves dogs and he loved this quilt.
After that I started a baby quilt even though no one in the family was expecting. My niece was already married and my son Ryan was getting married soon. I figured whoever had a baby first would get the quilt. My niece won. She had a baby girl in March. I love this fabric and the quilt turned out so adorable! Of course, my niece loves the quilt too. I did all hand quilting on this quilt. I quilted around each block and around the animal in each block. On the outside border I hand quilted around many of the animals. I used red thread and the quilting shows up nicely.
In my next guest blog, I’ll share with you my two projects that I completed this summer.
