Two more finishes

I have been busy. I have a few new things I would like to start, but I really need to clean up the clutter first. I got that last block done for the log cabin quilt and put it all together. Almost all the fabrics were from donations and I thank you all again. I will ask Alycia if she wants it for her QOV project.



You might remember a few months ago I participated in a Choose your own Color string block swap. I had asked for dark green centers with autumn color string. Even though I received a set of blocks from everyone who signed up, there were not enough blocks to make anything bigger than a wall hanging. I have been making extra blocks from donated fabrics, on and off for a while now and finally have something to show for it. Isn't it amazing how many people are involved in making this quilt. This will most likely go to Mary for the Heartstrings project.

Two more wonderful quilts! I'm sure Alycia will be thrilled to receive another quilt for QOV.

These are both really pretty.

I love how you do the crossed border and a border of blocks on these.

I quilted up another one of yours today and even got the binding machine stitched on - I'll be working on hand stitching bindings down during the Olympics.

Thanks again for allowing me to work on these HeartStrings quilts with you.
