Herd of Turtles Table runner finish

This is the Herd of Turtles table runner I made for my swap partner with The Quilted Table Yahoo group. My swap partner lives in Florida right on the coast so I thought the sea turtles would be appropriate :0). The pattern is one from designed by Nancy Chong. I stippled in the water using Sulky Holoshimmer metalic thread which really made it sparkle. The batiks looked great too. It really doesn't look so wrinkly in real life.
I also finished my two blocks for the Jelly Roll Quilt Along and my Sentimental Journey block for April. This means I get to start a new project! Now what will it be...I always have several ready to start:0). I am still thinking about the pillow for my pillow swap partner. So many different options.

Another baby quilt finish and my swap table runner started

Here is my latest finish. It is a baby quilt made on commission. It turned out cute, lots of bright color.

Now I am working on my table runner for the Spring swap
with The Quilted Table yahoo group here
I am having fun with a new applique technique and stippling with metalic thread. My runner should be finished soon and I will post a picture of it once my swap partner has received it. I'm really hoping she likes it. I think it is turning out very nice.

I just joined the pillow swap here:
Today was the last day to sign up so I hope I'm in. I love to make pillows! I try to change mine out every season.

Have a great weekend!

My Doubledipity Serendipity Quilt

Just recently I took a class presented by Marci Baker called Doubledipity Serendipity. This is the quilt that I made after taking the class. Her quilts are much prettier! I learned alot and my second quilt will be much fancier. You can see some of her quilts at . This quilt is perfect size for a baby. I put a flannel backing on it with planet and stars because I think these look like astroids. I am donating it to my quilt guild to give to a needy family.
Happy Easter everyone.
