Work in progress for this week

My Happy Go Lucky Stars

I got hold of some Bella Solid and... finally able to finish piecing Happy Go Lucky Star quilt. I just love this fabric line, so happy and cute. It is all now pinned and I'm thinking how to FMQ?

I had a bit of a problem attaching the sawtooth borders. I forgot that I was piecing the stars on my old Pfaff and after I bought more of the background fabric to continue, I started piecing sawtooth borders on my new Bernina. I just thought they are all 1/4" foot.... wrong! So I had to do a bit of reverse-sewing and piecing them back together.. voila... I love the sawtooth borders :)

And these are left-overs from the border HSTs... they just look so delicious!
I'm gonna make some more of them :)

Annabelle's quilt

This one is for my daughter, Annabelle. Fabric line is Wrens & Friends by Gina Martin for Moda picked by Annabelle.

It turned out quite big!!

Putting the final borders on, then off to find some backing :))

Finished baby quilt

Yay! I have a Friday finish quilt

This one is for my daughters' music director's new baby son :)
Finished quilt size is 40"x40" according to the pattern but I added two borders so it takes up to 46"x46". 

 I bought from and many more patterns I'd like to use from this book. This is a MUST have book!

FMQ quilting is done by me on my Bernina 750QE.

FMQ quilting doesn't stand out on the back or I just don't know how to get good pictures : P
But I thought I include the picture of the backing, too.

Linking up with crazy mom quilts,  TGIFF and Richard and Tanya Quilts :)
