Off to the quilter we go!

I got 2 major quilts finished this week.

This one is called Folk Art Blooms and it’s by the talented ladies at the Buggy Barn.    I saw the quilt hanging in their booth at market and it stopped me dead in my tracks.   

It measures 87” x 87”.   Hard to get a picture of the whole quilt.   This one will hang in our entry way.

I also finished the Autumn Quilt from Heart to Hand patterns.

It feels so good to have these 2 rather large quilts finally finished. 

Now it’s off to the quilter they go!

Hugs, Anne

Your Buggy Barn quilt is amazing. Would you believe I bought this same BOM around a year ago and it's sitting in a box totally untouched. After seeing yours, it's time to dust mine off and get started. Will be anxious to see it quilted. By the way , the wool quilt is fantastic too.

What beautiful applique work you do!! I've yet to jump in with both feet. Have only done one machine applique quilt and working on another block of the month. Will be lovely to see them after quilting and binding.

Anne...they are beautiful. I've been debating about getting Folk Art Blooms and now I know! I'm 1/4 ways through my Autumn quilt. Just curious...do you know how you want both quilts quilted or do you leave it up to your quilter? Will it be custom or all over quilting?BTW...I love your blog!!

Melanie said...

The dark colors just make the applique 'Pop'. Hope you'll show them to us again when you finish the quilting...

Yvette said...

Wow! Now those are two masterpieces you finished. I look forward to seeing them hung up in your beautiful home.

Synthia said...

WOW! Two spectacular quilt finishes in one blog. Stunning.

Lori said...

Two beautiful quilts!! I love the black background!!

Friendship Crossing said...

They are both stunning, but esp. the black one! All colors seem to 'pop' off of black.
You must have an amazing amount of wall space~LOL.

Beautiful! Beautiful!

Beautiful quilts, both of them. Do you ever do any quilting or do you always send to a long arm quilter? Ther are long arm quilters in Britain, but I don't know many people who use them. It seems to be the thing in the USA to have this done.

Gayle said...

WOW!

Beth said...

Fantastic, both of them. The Folk art one is just amazing. Love everything about it.
The fall quilt. sigh. I have to get that pattern. I need to make that quilt. :)

You totally rock, Anne! What gorgeous quilts that will be even more gorgeous after they're quilted!

Karen said...

You can send me "Folk Art Blooms" and I would be very happy! LOL! Not much chance of that.

Nadine said...

Congrats!!! Glad one of us is finishing things!

Your Folk Art Blooms is STUNNING!!!! Both tops are just gorgeous.

Rocky Delafontaine said...

This quilt is a real treasure, and I would have picked this as well. Your Autumn Quilt is very pretty, with the different designs reminding one of the Fall season. It's amazing how you've finished such a big quilt. :-)

Linda said...

Your quilts are just stunning ANNE.I'm sure these quilts will take the show.
