First and Last Quilts (and in progress)

Following the blogland quilters I read, I am posting my first and "last" quilts. The last one is actually still in progress, so I am thinking it doesn't count.

My first quilt is this tablerunner that starte me quilting. I did this all on my machine and did "in the ditch" quilting. Don't go looking too closely or you will see that I jumped out of the ditch a couple of times. C'est la vie!
Table Runner

My last completed quilt is this one that you probably saw already.

The quilt hadn't been bound in this picture, but you get the idea anyway. Since it was finished this quilt has spent 98% of the time on my bed. I love it.

I am still working on the quilt for Dave. So just to make this a little more complete here is part of the "in progress" quilt

I love that table runner....and see nothing wrong with it at all. The most recent quilts are very nice, too. (won't be online much the next few days as we are doing the Grammy and Grampy "stuff" until late in the day on Saturday).

I too love the table runner but you have done a 180 in the color scheme....since.

There is still, and always will be, a place in my heart for traditional quilting, so I love the table runner, but oh boy are these last two quilts just pure and complete fun! I almost feel that you're painting with fabric and I think that is awesome. Great work Gene.
