Finished Quilts

Although it's been incredibly busy around here lately, I had to finish these quilts for the Stray Threads Quilt Show that is later this month. [Well, I still have a little sewing to do, but it's only stitching the labels on, and since I usually sign them in ink, they are already labeled, so the fabric label will be sewn on top.]

First up is my Self Portrait. This quit was mostly designed while I was taking Pam Allen's "Think like an Artist" online class, which was a fun filled learning experience. It took me a while to decide how I wanted to finish it, whether it should have binding or a facing (I decided on the facing), and other little details, but it's finally finished!

Second is My Little Chickadee, which was inspired by the little Chickadees that come to visit the bird feeder outside my kitchen window. They're such cute little birds, and I love the way they can hang upside down, as well as other silly angles. (The stamps on this quilt and those below are some of the ones that I carved last year.)

This unnamed floral has really been finished for a while, but soon it will have a label stitched to the back.

The last one is another floral, and I must admit that if I have enough time, I'm thinking that I would like to stitch little seed beads between the center panel and border, in a similar way that I added beads around the leaves in the quilt above.
