Sometimes I just gotta.......

...........work on quilty projects or I'll go nuts. So over this past week I've been putting in a bunch of hours working on UFO's and getting them finished up. Pics of all that I've finished up are below.

the first quilt is a quilt top for American Heros. It started with a set of 15 blocks that had been given to me by a friend from one of my quilt lists. the second quilt finished was a top that I had made a couple of yrs ago. this one just needed quilting and binding. It has been sold and will be going to its new home as soon as I finishe up one more quilt.

The next top started with some UFO fabric that was from the estate of a friend on the Sunshine quilt list. The striped fabric came from her and I added the wine and blue fabrics. The blues were from the scraps leftover after a quilt I had finished up last year.

The final project finished was a postcard that I made as a birthday card for an 80th birthday for someone special. =) To get the '80' on there I used a couple of iron on crystal number.

I've also finished up block designs to be submitted for consideration in issues 6-9 of QuiltMaker Top 100 Blocks. The one for issue 6 will be going in the mail today, but can't post pictures of them here.
