Quilts 106 and 107

Yep I know that I am out of order.... but it is not a labeling problem this time!  Quilts 103, 104 & 105 are pieced and quilted but not bound yet.... so I am not showing them quite yet.

These two quilts were completed by Celia.  Celia was at our community sew day earlier this year and at the end of the day she took home these two quilt tops to finish for me.  She quilted and bound them, which means all I had to do was label them and get them documented.

Celia has a longarm, and thought these quilts would be great practice for her, not sure she actually needs the practice, but I am thankful that she helped out.  Celia is also the person that keeps telling me that I should learn to machine bind to save time.  I have to admit, she makes machine binding look easy.....but alas I have not mastered the process yet.

Here are the quilts.  

She did a great job with them didn't she!  

BTW I know I have told you before, that these particular quilts were all kitted from donated fabric.  Last September the quilt group sponsored by Adel Quilting and Dry Goods spent their meeting night cutting and kitting these quilts.  As most of us cut the necessary strips, Celia set out kitting the individual kits.  Mind you we had 15 bolts of fabric, being cut by 15- 20 people.  Their instructions were as simple as cut X amount of 4 inch strips, X amount of 2 inch strips and X amount of some other width.  As strips were cut Madelyn took them to Celia and she set out making kits.  Given the total lack of organization and the instructions she had to work with( my fault completely).  I think all of these quilts turned out amazing!

Thank you again for all of your support Celia!

I hope that in my next post I will have a couple of those quilts bound and be able to show them to you.

Have a great week end everyone!
