7 QUILTS BASTED!

Today I basted 7 small quilts.  Some are Christmas table toppers and some are musical table runners.

This first one is from a pattern I have made a few other times - Happy Holidays, designed by Terry Atkinson.  I made 2 Christmas table toppers in the small and medium sizes.  Both have the same fabric layout as in the one below, which is the medium one.


Below are the other quilts folded so you can only see their backings.




The goofy Santa fabric was purchased at a garage sale and I have only used it for backing Christmas quilts as it is rather silly.


I hope to get these quilted soon.  Thanks for visiting!

That looks like a complicated pattern; lots of pretty fabrics there too. You've accomplished more than I have today. ---"Love"

I find once I have my little quilts basted I am much more likely to tackle them. And I always wonder why I didn't get on it sooner. It is never as bad as I make it in my own mind.
That is pretty funny Santa fabric. : )

You're entering quilting super hero status Ruth! Now if you could just bottle some of that energy and enthusiasm and send it my way . . .

You always have beautiful quilts Ruth now you will be busy quilting them all.

Sometimes a really silly fabric is just the ticket, especially for a child's quilt (or for the young at heart)! Have fun with your quilting projects - a lot of finishes coming up soon!

I love to get a lot of quilts basted at once too. Good luck getting them quilted!
