Finished Quilt Tops

First, I should give thanks to my wonderful husband.  I have been trying for weeks to find a way to hang my quilt tops to take beautiful outside pictures of them; no success.  So, back up plan:  Ask tall husband to stand at an odd angle in the living room holding quilt tops so the light from the window reaches them.  The pictures aren't the greatest, but I will find a better way eventually!

Here is finished quilt top #1.  It was a mystery quilt from the International Mystery Series...I think.  It could also have been from the North American Mystery Series (same company).  In the picture above, you can see what the colors actually look like.  In the picture below, you can see what the overall pattern looks like...and my husbands legs.  :)

Finished quilt top #2.

This one was a mystery available at the Fat Quarters Quilt Guild's annual retreat.  It was designed by Debbie Barber.

hmmm...I think I will need to do some cropping and photoshop work to my future photos.  Yep, they definitely need alteration.

Okay...onto finished quilt top #3.

This quilt was also a mystery from the International Mystery Series.

It's a bit wrinkly...oops.  Notice the corner design!

That is what happens when you don't have any corner stones and you are doing a piano key border.

Now, on to an almost finished quilt top.  I have been participating in the Supernova Quiltalong over at Freshly Pieced and have almost managed to keep up with everyone!  Right now, I am at a standstill waiting some more of the nave solid.  I ran out with just a little left to go on the border.  Here it is anyway!

I guess I better get sewing!


  1. Hi, Mary, what cheerful quilts you've been making!! :)

    I saw in your comment on another blog that you live in the Columbus, OH area? My mother lives south of Columbus and I go through there two or three times a year. I'd love to know where the shops are in that area, and what you think of them. :)

    I'd've sent this via regular email, but I don't see any link to your profile or email address here on your blog.

    :) linda
