The small and the big one

For the first time i followed the instructions for a very small quilt on CHERI PAYNE's blog QUILTSBYCHERI, and i tell you: every day around 5 i watchted her blog for the next part, i added a frame because i like framed quilts and i hope she will start a new one very soon.
The big one is now basted for quilting, let me, say once again how quick and easy it was, only ten days a few hours a day.
I shopped in my boxes under the bed, and the fabric for the first border is a souvenir from a Joann's expedition to Houston festival 5 years ago.
I try to resist the temptation to start a new quilt and finish a few unfinished top instead.

Hi, both quilts are absolutely beautiful. I am also trying not to start a new quilt at the moment. Looking forward to see them quilted.

Your big quilt is really lovely, and I think that your shopping technique is one that I should use more often! Have fun quilting.

Hello Will and the little one is cute,but the big one is a wowzy that is just breathtaking ,how long have you been working on that? are you going to hand quilt it ? I think quilts so beautiful should be hand stitched. I hope one day to go to Houston , I just got back from a tip to the U.S. to help out my Mom and to fly back with me so while there I visited a few quilt shops ,it was my first time in quilt shops and sure was a joy I hope you have time to stop over a see my post about my shopping spree. take care theodora
