Friday Finishes

First things, first.  A big thank-you to Cathy Kieser for my adorable watermelon pin cushion.
Cathy gifted me this pin cushion in this wonderful pink gift bag.  Its become a little joke in our households.  We leave the gift bag after we gift something quilty in it, on the counter until the husband comes home.  It peaks your husband's listening skills when he suspects something special is inside that infamous pink bag.
Aren't we cruel?
The pin cushion is only four inches long. 
Along with the pin cushion came a box of selvages.  I am working on saving enough selvages to make a quilt.  Again, thank you Cathy!!!
This is the queen size quilt I finished this week.
Sorry to say these are the only pictures I have as the customer picked it up before I could take pictures.  The pattern is Field of Flowers by Handi Quilter and the thread is 27251 Peach Glide. 
Next is this fish quilt finished last week with my friend, Kathy O.
We quilted it with a dusty blue Omni thread that just disappeared.
The quilting pattern was continuous waves.
The backing was blue and white chevron Shannon.  This quilt was gifted at a baby shower last weekend to Kathy's niece.  I assisted Kathy with setting up the quilt to be quilted and she did the work.  Congratulations on a beautiful finish!
The next quilt is a double wedding ring (92" x 108").
The quilting pattern is clover edge to edge.
The thread is Barley 3043 by Omini. 
Here are the end of my beautiful roses my husband sent me for our 27th wedding anniversary last week.  They have been a bright spot in each day.
Have a great weekend.  Today I will be quilting on a Carpenter Star quilt.
