Summer Sampler Series

Fresh Lemons Quilts

I started this one back in July.  I got a few weeks behind but I have finished all my blocks.  Putting an actual post together requires good pictures which I never seem to get around to taking.

Mod Times Quilt Along Finished

Started this one in April.  Finished the top in the quilt along over at Twin Fibers Mod Times Quilt Along.  It took me a while to decide on the border. This quilt used fabrics entirely from my personal supply (aka "stash").  I quilted this one with some straight lines around the rectangles and used free motion to follow the design of the fabric in the border.  This was my first time using nylon thread in the top and white thread in the bobbin.  I am pleased with the results.  No problems with the tension and very few thread breaks.
