At last some quilty pictures

My Disappearing (or chopped-up) 9 patch quilt has been completed. I thought I'd posted a picture of this in an earlier post but obviously not.

I have been busily finishing things off over the past month or so. This is the green quilt from the strip swap.

The quilting is different size leaves, free motion, I thought they would look good on the green background. Some of my leaves have very unique shapes, lol.

A close up of the quilting. I used a variegated thread for the quilting.

After knitting the red socks I decided to be a little more creative and add a pattern. In real life the red socks are bright red, not as pinky as they show up here.

WOW, I love those Quilts, just gorgeous, and those socks, I remember my mum used to knit socks, they lasted forever, she knitted gloves too. They were lovely towear, fitted properly.
So glad I have found your Blog.

Congratulations on another great finish. Both quilts are lovely, but I am especially fond of the greens. I'm going to have to make a one color quilt someday.
