Quilting the day away

I can always tell when a non-quilter walks into my house; they never say boo about the various finished and unfinished tops and quilts I have draped over my quilt rack or my stairwell.  They never question why there are so many safety pins in that quilt (assuming it's part of the decor, I guess).

A quilter, on the other hand, would say "are you going to put a border on that" or "wow, that top you've been working on forever is looking good".

So on Worldwide Quilting Day, I'll show you a few things I've been working on.

A present for my friend for her birthday (a little late, but that's OK). Hope this table runner isn't too long for her table! Just needs a binding.

And the back:

A little free-motion quilting on a bigger quilt for my wall:
Then non-quilty related:
My over-wintered begonia is doing fine.

And it's still winter here,
in case you were wondering.

I love your quilt. I know what you mean about non-quilters. They won't see the great straight line quilting in this quilt. I love it and the colors and the modern feel it gives. Looking forward to seeing that wall hanging finished too.
