Tulips on Gingham

As you can see, my last post on this was in April when I started the project.  The applique is completed and has been completed for a little while and I have added the borders.

I decided I wanted curves instead of points on my quilt.

I like the look of it all with the colors.

 I do still have issues with the corners as they don't match.  I should have made sure of things when I got to that point, but I didn't center everything perfectly. Now I will have to do some adjustments on the corners.  Then it goes to the quilting machine.

Quilting or Upholstery?

Lately I've been working on an upholstery job.  It's redoing our patio dining chairs.  The old ones were getting pretty ripped.  Not to nice looking, are they?  Who would want guests to sit on these?

 So I bought some fabric and am redoing them.  I have a friend and a daughter that help me through the process. Half of them are totally done.  I just need to finish stuffing the cushions to have them all completed.  

I think I will stick to quilting.  Upholstery is not my bag. But it is nice to have good looking chairs to sit upon.

This Year's Wedding Quilt

Jordan and Bonnie did get married and are even back from their honeymoon.  Their quilt is still in the process though.  I figure it's a lifelong gift, so it doesn't really matter if it wasn't ready by their wedding. 
It is now on the frame getting quilted.  It is so much fun to quilt.  Here's a pic.

Or  two.  It's more of a tan than this color shows.  Not so yellow.  The blue is my washable pen which will be gone when I give it to them.
