Busy Week

I got a couple of the quilts on my "Quilts Waiting to be Quilted" list finished.

Classic Blue & White was one of Little Quilts 2005 Second Saturday Sampler quilts.

The second quilt is from the book Jelly Roll Quilts and is called Pandora's Box.
I won a Mother Goose jelly roll from All Washed up in June 2009 and this is the quilt I made.

I quilted Classic Blue and White  with an all over design and used wool batting.

Pandora's Box also has wool batting and is quilted in a feather design.

I have also been working on my scrappy nine patch and snowball quilt. 
I sewed all the blocks together and now I just need to decide what kind of border
I want or even if I want a border. 
What do you think?

I do love your Pandora's Box quilt. I had my quilter use wool batting on a quilt for my bed and I really love it. It's so light and even in the summer it's not too warm. By the time you bind your nine patch quilt, that will give it enough to pull it all in--any way that's my opinion. But, you'll have a sense for what you want, I'm sure!

What wonderful quilts!! Particularly love the 9patch one - I think I'd add a border of the background fabric to float everything a bit, then do a all-scrappy binding :)
