WIP Wednesday

Just a few quilting projects on the go this week. My yellow and gray quilt came back from being quilted, so I am adding the binding today.
Sunshine & Clouds - FOR SALE

These two quilted table runners are also at the binding stage. The cherry runner is free-motion machine quilted with a leaf motif that I wanted to practice. It's not perfect, but I think that leaves in nature are not always perfectly formed either, so it just adds to the character of the finished piece. I added a little folded accent strip just inside the quilt binding and think it really pops!
Fresh Cherries - FOR SALE

Chevrons & Roses - FOR SALE

The lovely zig zag chevron quilt was made from a beautiful floral fabric I've had for quite some time. When I bought it, I was reminded of my Oma (grandmother) who passed away when I was quite young, but she wore dresses with these big floral prints. I found 2 fat quarters of it in my fabric stash, so this quilted table runner is a bit larger than some of the others I've made recently.

Do you buy fabric or decor items because of pleasant memories they bring back?
