Three Baby Quilts

Progress has been made on the baby quilts I have been working on this week. There has been a lot of quilting going on around here and some late nights.


I did encounter a few tension problems, which is fairly unusual. A quick consultation with my sewing sister revealed that I was turning the tension knob the wrong way, of course! I can't get my head around tension, even after studying the sewing machine manual, I get it wrong. Yawn...


These baby quilts are now awaiting their binding. Aargh, not the binding. Once again I have encountered much indecision. But I will insist on finishing these this week.


Triplets anyone?

    These 3 are simply gorgeous! Really, beautiful work!

  6. ugh...how in the world do you get EVERYTHING to match so nicely? it doesn't matter how much I trim and how careful I am. I'm jealous. If I lived by you I would make you come to my house and show me.

  13. What? My quilting guru having problems with tension?:) I have only FMQ one time so that is something that I am still working on...guess that is something that we are always working on!
    Three quilts = three different bindings right? I love to sew the binding because then I know it will be time to wash and dry and see the crinkles!!!:)
    They are beautiful....simply and to the point....you are a master at picking out fabrics....I bow to you!;)

  14. They are just great! Tension sometimes is one of those thing that is difficult to figure out. Upper, lower.... I feel your pain.

  16. Only the worse than tension on the sewing machine, is tension adjustments on a serger (more threads). I can only figure it out by looking at picture in manual and then pulling the top thread to determine if I've made it tighter or more loose... the know does nothing for me either. The quilts look great!

  17. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who turns the knob in the wrong direction. It must be something about the way the manuals are written, and not our brains, right? : )

    Beautiful quilts. And as a mom of twins, I couldn't even imagine triplets!

  18. Oh my, twins maybe, but triplets I'm not sure I would survive! I love your stuff!

  19. so cute... but i would expect nothing less from you!

  20. I am useless when it comes to figuring out tension too.
    Funny that you had problems with straight-line quilting, that's usually the safest.

  21. Love these quilts. What color is the solid square? Looks like a pretty grey in the photo.

  22. These are so wonderful! I love the way in which you quilted them! I really admire your work!

  23. For as perfect as your stitches always are on each and every quilt you make, I would have thought you'd use a walking foot. I was surprised when I saw the regular foot on your machine, or are my eyes deceiving me?.

  24. these quilts are just amazing! I found your blog by following the link on your flickr. I am teaching myself how to quilt. I'm wondering how you, yourself, puts the binding on...
    I'm a new follower of your blog and will now go check out your etsy shop.
