    Hooray! You got it done. It may have taken you 4 years to finish but it looks great.
    Hope you recover quickly from the knee surgery.

    I too spend too much time on QB. I didn't get on here yesterday and look at all the new finishes!

    It's beautiful.
    Having the surgery has been a positive thing for you....at least in the quilting area...look at all the UFOs you are completing.
    Did you have knee replacement? My DH had hip replacement last summer....helped him a lot.

    And there were scraps leftover I can use for another quilt.
    It's lovely. I love sunflower fabrics.
    I'm glad it's no longer an orphan but is benefiting a good cause.

    Nice runners and a great way to use scraps.
    My favorite one is the last pic...green one.....nice one to use on Paddy's Day.
    I have printed off many pages of runner/wall hanging pics for inspiration. They are inspirations for quick projects I have planned for this coming summer.
    First, I have to finish quilting the tops I did last year. I still have 5 to do.

    VickiM, you've been busy with getting the runners and quilts finished. The pink one is a-DORA-ble (Couldn't resist that). I like bear panels too. Last year, I did a bear panel as a baby quilt. The panels are an easy and fun way to make baby quilts.
    Here's a link to my panel quilt.

    No, I had a torn Menicus. It is killing me just to sit around most of the time. I do plan to walk out to the shop today just for some exercise. Hoping later on this week I will be back to normal.

    Nice job, not only using scraps, gives you a lot of choice in how to decorate.

    Nice job on both, I really like the Dora quilt.

    WOW! You ladies are doing fantastic. Love seeing the finished quilts. That One Fabric Wonder quilt really inspires me to get mine done. I love that pattern. Your fabric really made this quilt work. Did you do kaleidescope or just cut and place?
