Wicked Easy Quilts

These two quilts were made with the Wicked Easy quilt pattern found here. They really are quick and easy when done with a rotary cutter, strip piecing, and machine quilting. I made both of them in a four day weekend. I learned once again that it's worth the extra expense to buy cotton quilt batt, as it quilts so much easier and smoother on the machine. I like the way it feels when finished too.

I had to send my camera into Cannon for repair because it won't hold a battery charge. I miss it and I hope it comes back safe and sound. Has anyone else had trouble with the batteries on a Canon Powershot A590 IS?

I didn't take as many pictures this month. Too busy doing all that stuff IRL.

Pink & green: African violets & a quilt

The green in this quilt photographed really, really bright. It's not one you would fall asleep too, but rather the kind of couch quilt you want to use when you are up late studying. I made it for one of the boys' daycare teachers. She is leaving the daycare to go back to nursing school. We will miss her & her smiles and hugs!
