Pink Swirl

Pink Swirl

This is another quilt finished and gifted in August, to my new beautiful niece. I enlisted my daughter's help in naming the quilt and she suggested Pink Swirl. I thought it was the perfect name, and showcased the beautiful pink swirl quilting in the middle of the stars. My brother and sister-in-law were very appreciative of the quilt. The pattern is called Unwind from Jaybird Quilts. I really enjoy making quilts for others. It brings so much satisfaction for me.  Linking up to Finish it Up Friday, TGIFF and Can I Get A Whoop, Whoop.

On Their Way!

Well, I got two quilts finished and on their way to the quilter's yesterday. I got a lot accomplished in August and it will be nice to have some finished projects later this year.

I so love this dog quilt, that will be for my friend's first grandchild and it was so easy to do. I am even prouder that all the fabric can from my stash.

I also finally got around to finishing the Twister quilt for my daughter.  I was in a rush to get it done and realized after, I had not taken a photo of the completed top. She had picked out a Minky aqua backing last summer, and kept asking me when it would be in a quilt for her. Well, now it will!

Sunflowers Have Bloomed!

Sunflowers II

My Sunflower quilt is finished and delivered to my dh's Great-Aunt in the summer. She was very surprised, happy and grateful. I was not happy with my original binding fabric so I went to my LQS and found a great binding and for only $5.00. I really enjoyed making this Taffy pattern from Jaybird Quilts. I can definitely see myself making it again. Linking to Finish it Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts, TGIFF and Can I Get A Whoop, Whoop!
