More Finishes

I'm on a roll! I was looking for something in my mess of a sewing room last weekend, and came across a random pile of little quilts, patiently waiting to be quilted.

I remember wanting to try a tiny twister when I made this little thing several years ago. It is only 12 X 15"- place mat size. Cute, but not my colors, so it might be on the auction table tonight at the guild.

A few years ago, my friend Jackie gave me a honey bun (1.5" strips) of Fig Tree fabrics that she picked up at Market. I turned six strips into a mini weed whacker block and there it sat. I had picked up a couple of coordinates at the LQS that were stored with the block. One for the corner triangles, one for the back and one for the binding. After quilting the snot out of it, this table topper is ready to be gifted. (17" square)

I really enjoyed making Zig Zag Friends back in 2011. Sometime after that, I pieced the top of this doll quilt. 18 X 24"

Last week, I finished a few more guild outreach quilts. This one is from the Little Leapfrog pattern by Project 12. We know who will be receiving this quilt, we are just waiting for his Habitat home to be completed. I drove by yesterday and it looks like there is still much to be done.

Two more Quick Strippies are quilted and ready for Project Linus.

When I get this much done, it is usually because I am avoiding some other task. I need to start cutting the wedding quilt this week. The couple is happy with the sample block (pictured here, scroll down), so there is no need for this stalling.

Wow! So much things done. I have also some unfinished projects, if yours are finished. ;-) my wedding costs most of my time at the moment.
greetings, Rike

Wonderful quilting on the little quilts and the linus quilts are so cute. I am trying to decide on a design for my runner, simple blocks so i wanted to try a design to get some practice on free motion.

I'm a staller, too. I recognized the problem 20 years ago while doing our taxes. I hate doing taxes, and kept getting up to do laundry, get a snack, check the mail - just anything so I didn't have to do the math.
I do that now, if I hit a snag in the quilting process the project might get put on a back burner, or go into the UFO box. I need time to figure out what to do next.
I might have grown out of that "stage" now. On Grandgirl's Wedding Quilt I came upon the backing lacking, and just went ahead and fixed it. Whoooo hooo! I've grown up?

Yay for getting old WIP's done, dusted, and gifted, auctioned, etc!!! There must be room for some new WIP's now!!

good to see do many finishes you must be pleased to have them done, now get on with the wedding quilt no more excuses please. I too do not like starting new things but once started all is well

Kris said...

That is a lot of finishes. Great job. I really love the little chevron.

Absolutely beautiful finishes, every one! OK, my fave is the zig zag one and your term 'quilting the snot out of" . . . I LOVE to quilt the snot out of most things these days :)

Always satisfying to finish off UFOs - good excuse to practise the FMQ! They look great!
