New tops as Medical Leave Ends

Managed to get two quilt tops finished up for Sunshine Quilts as my medical leave was finishing up.

The first one started with a remnant of a school print fabric.   Made it into 4 patches.  4 patches then were set with alternating squares of tone-on-tone fabrics.  The blues are closer in shade than the pictures.

The second quilt started with 5 blocks that Beth H. made for me from a FQ challenge I had made on Sunshine.   The setting was one I had seen used somewhere but for the life of me can't remember where.

In the original quilt the "background stripes" were equally sized, but I didn't have enough of the purple fabric,  So I divided what I had in half and put it all together.   I like how it turned out and will use the setting again.   Might even try it with more than two colors to see how that turns out.

Have a new top for Sunshine in process, but it will take several days to complete because I have so much to get done for school and not enough time in the day to get it all done.  =P

Gratitudes:
1.  Three weeks of classes left before final exams.......Summer vacation is coming!

2.  No matter what kind of a zoo school is like, I will retain my sanity......

both settings are great--filing them away for future reference. :-)

Here's to a good re-entry to the work world.
