Back Home

I got three quilts back from the quilter and I love them all.  Abby at Latimer Lane Quilting did the quilting for these mini quilts.  This is the first time I have used Abby and it won't be the last.  

This is last August's Schnibbles, Dimestore.

Abby chose a nice leafy design for this fall runner.

This is Lifetime Quilt # 94 if you have any questions.

I promised this quilt to someone after I finished piecing it, good thing Abby was able to get it done so quickly, it's almost time to use it.

This is last April's Schnibbles, Hat Trick.

I won't be needing this one until next spring, but I'm thrilled to have it done and ready to go.

Abby went with an all over circle design for this project.  You know me and dots, I could not love this design more.

This is Lifetime Quilt Number 103 if you have any questions.

And last but not least, Tickle by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co is done too.

Abby did a custom job on this top, which pleased me since this project is extra special, I made it using the FQS Thelma Bundle.

I LOVE the star design in that plain red corner block, and also the viney design in the border.

There's a lot of quilting going on for such a small project, Abby really brought this top to life.

This is Lifetime Quilt Number 101, Tickled Red.

Thanks Abby for quilting these small projects for me, they would still be hanging in my closet if it weren't for you.

(This is not a paid endorsement for Latimer Lane Quilting and hopefully you know me better than that by now!  But just to be clear, I paid to have my tops finished by Abby, you can do the same.)


  1. Very nice! I especially love the circle quilting on your Hat trick, that one is just so cool! Have a great day Thelma.

  2. What a nice finish to your lovely quilts! They're all wonderful! The fall-themed runner caught my eye this morning. Wishful thinking for the cooler weather that's sure to come - eventually!! Good job!

  3. I know it is great to have them back, and also to have another talented and reliable quilter on call! Love Tickled Red (great name for it)!

  4. Thank you so much for the honor of working on your quilts. I have to say the back of your tickled red was almost as pretty as the front! Your seams and ironing is perfect! Thank you so much for the work I really appreciate it and loved working with you and on your quilts!

  5. Beautiful quilting~ I can see why you are so pleased with Abby! I especially love your Hat Trick with the dots. Isn't it nice to have them finished/finished.

  6. beautiful quilting! I love your Hat Trick. I know I told you that when you first finished it.

  7. Love them!! Especially Tickle. Love the reds!

  8. Such beautiful quilts with beautiful quilting! Especially love those vines! Thanks for sharing!

  9. They are beautiful Thelma. Abby is very creative! Great job :) both of you.

  10. Gee! It must have felt a bit like Christmas receiving all these finished projects back. I'm curious, when you send something to be quilted, does it come back totally finished? Binding and all?
    I absolutely love your Hat cheery and spring like. Your "tickled red" stars are beautiful as well.
    The more I think of it, the more I think I may just make another Hat wasn't an "instant" like for me when I made it, but it was wiggled it's way into my heart and I think I may do another in a totally different colour way.

  11. Ooh, I like all three of those patterns. They do look like they make good quick quilts for gifts! And I love the colors of the second one, so cheerful! cheers, Claire W.
