This past month I've been scurrying a bit. I wanted to finish up a few small things - and I have ALMOST finished the following three. I decided to show them to you anyway, lest I am unable to blog between now and when we leave for Maine.
International Liberated Medallion is quilted, bound and labeled -- just needs a sleeve. Joes, Isabeau and their friends in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, made this around my center start. I told you about it here.

Buoys and Shadows is quilted and faced. The facing needs hemming, the quilting threads need to be buried, and I need to make a sleeve and label. This is the first piece on which I have done "serious" machine quilting. That took a bit of gumption on my part, but I am pleased with how it came out. No bubbles of fabric. I decided to leave some small spaces un-quilted - as place to rest one's eyes.

Caught at Low Tide is quilted and bound. Again, I need to hem the binding, make a sleeve and a label. Ah well, that will get done... I'm taking both buoy quilts with me to Maine.
This little quilt was made by piecing different scraps together to make the background . Then I appliqued the buoys and the "seaweed and rocks". I am imagining that one is looking from pretty far away- maybe from a boat , hence the small size of all featured parts.
