A Year for Finishes

I decided this was going to be the year I concentrated on getting things quilted that have been laying around for a few years, and to finish some things I had started. So here is another finish! I made this top years ago and loved it, but was always afraid to get it quilted (or do it myself). Now that I have an awesome custom quilter it was time! Don't you just LOVE that purple in the quilt!

Above is a doll quilt I made for a small friend.

And here are some premie quilts I made up with scraps!

oh what a scarry thought that your plaid star quilt was an UFO for a few years!!! I'm so glad that you finished it up as it is fantastic!!! I know that you will enjoy it for many years to come now that it's done and you can wrap up in it! ;)

Reminds me of Bonnie Hunter's style with the homespun shirting looking fabrics! and that is a fun border too with the 4patches in the corners. Love it. :)

Love from Texas! ~bonnie
