    Three New Quilts

    Been doing some small, simple stuff that I thought I'd share. This first one is a charity quilt kit that Beth got from an organization, to return for their distribution. I like the bold colors in it. It's been sitting around waaaaay too long, so I popped it onto Lucius to play a bit. I did a nice "falling leaves" pantograph in the center and then a free-hand cable-like pattern in the borders. Fun to just create a border! Now to finally send it back... Two years ago, right after getting Lucius, I did a panel baby quilt like this for a friend. Now another friend has just had twins, and I discovered that my resourceful wife had actually bought FOUR of these panels for her stash! So we pulled out two more of them and did contrasting backing and border flanges for the twins. I was also really sneaky and loaded both baby quilts onto Lucius at the same time! The panto is one that I created for that first quilt, so I lengthened it and just ran it all the way across both quilts. (Well, I had to adjust the laser between the quilts to keep the lions and elephants from being cut by the edges.) More fun. Keep stitching, everyone!

    Finally finished quilting a quilt without too many hiccups!! No eyelashes! Just a few thread breaks.
