    Thanks for the compliments. I saw a small wall hanging in a magazine that gave me the idea for the background and I printed pics of real dolphins to enlarge and trace for the center. I did take some liberties by giving them smiles.
    When I quilted it I did "Rays" coming from the center on the top and wavy lines on the bottom.

    Wow, Dragonfly Nana, it is gorgeous.

    Just had to tell y'all this! I was having lots of fun creating and using up my stash when I suddenly had a six block top that "demanded" to be bigger. Nothing in my stash would work - see thread in Main section "ideas needed" so a shopping trip was essential! So much for stash busting on this one. Lol!

    Lovely quilts, everyone! We are headed on vacation for over a month. I'm taking a machine and lots and lots of projects. I'll have a lot of time to sew during the heat of the day. Can't wait to see how much I'll accomplish away from the every day distractions here at home. Wish me luck!

    Love those finishes ArizonaKat. Those turned out nice.
    Good job Pat625, finishing up projects from the stash feels good.

    I am along with you gals, finally getting some things done from the stash. I finished up a quilt that I received the fabric from my husband nearly 20 years ago. Now that is some old stash busting. I posted on the UFO thread. I also did a couple mug rugs as well, one for my MIL for a birthday present, and then a couple of doll quilts.
    DH has to have some major dental work done so won't be visitng the fabric store very much at all. I will definitely be pulling from the stash. Good thing I have a bolt of each of nautrual Kona cotton and Kona black. That will keep me busy with the stash busting, not to mention some of those projects that I have been collecting for a long time. LOL

    I recently finished this large lap quilt from scraps. I was even able to do the backing from some leftover backing. My husband thinks it is a "little busy". It is out of the norm of what I usually do, but like the results.

    Sophie2, I love this one. I don't think it is busy at all - zoomed right into the yellow pinwheels! Great use of those scraps.

    I agree with AUQuilter - I was drawn right to the pinwheels. Such a fun and uplifting quilt.

    Thank you. I will have to tell my DH that it is not too busy!
