Zig Zags Are Finished

I have quilts to show. And they are all finished!
I have been very busy quilting this week!
And enjoying it! Which isn't always the case.

These are the three quilts for Carol. There is a lap quilt, a baby quilt and a doll quilt.
And I only made blocks for the lap.
The other two quilts got their blocks from the not-needed left-overs or the throw-aways.
That made the two smaller quilts really fast and easy.

I had fun shopping my stash.
I only bought fabric for the border and a couple of 1/8 yard cuts.

Here is the lap for Carol.

Here is the baby quilt for Evie Jo.

And here is the doll quilt for Evie Jo's dolly. (Hope she plays with dolls!)

The quilting was so simple. Just straight lines.
With the baby quilt, I followed the zigzags.
Even that took more time than I wanted, plus I had to keep turning the quilt with each zig and each zag.

So, on the lap and the doll quilt I did a cross hatch, and I really liked that.

Here is the last time I will show you this quilt. It is all quilted and bound and it is just for ME!

Now on to quilting my Spanish Tile. Hope to show that next week.

I'm sure Carol and Evie Jo are going to love their quilts. And I can tell you really like yours. It's nice to get re-excited about quilting, I need a little of that.

They're beautiful, Mary! So bright and cheery! I've never seen a zig-zag border on a zig-zag and I love it! Your daughter and the baby will love them!
