Quiltathon Day 2

Day 2 of the Quiltathon at Patchwork Times.  I got a late start as this crazy cold virus was trying to win today.  I finally got moving and have quilted two of the three wallhangings I had ready and have the binding stitched on and ready for hand stitching.    

For some reason I can't load pictures right now.  I get an almost blank screen with a sad face.  I have never seen that before.  I will try again later on an update.  In the meantime I will go quilt the third wallhanging!

Update:  The pictures loaded.  This is more of a large doll quilt size, but it will be a fun, bright quilt to hang in the hallway upstairs.  I was using scrap batting and I had a wool that was very thin and "spotty" so I used two layers.  BIG mistake!  I don't like the puffiness of it and it was tough to quilt straight lines.  I have the stripe binding on and ready for stitching.

Here is Christmas Wishes.  I just quilted a lot of straight lines.  I really like the effect and didn't want to disturb the hand embroidery.  Binding is ready for stitching.

No worries. We can wait for pictures. Computer gliches- no fun! There isn't a Link-up anyway today. Happy Stitching! I'm moving slower than I'd planned. Hit a bump in chooseing. Thanks for your input.

Both of your quilts are beautiful. I love the scrappy stars! It sure will brighten up your stairs. We are getting ready for our first snow storm, so depending on how much we get, I may be participating in the quiltathon tomorrow.

Good job Julie! You are already marking projects off your list! It's fun having planned time to just quilt.
