    2 of my most recent finishes

    Hello all its been quit sometime since my last finished quilt I had been dreading the final step of binding so a couple of weeks ago I finally sucked it up and bound 8of my ufos. So glad that is done. . I hear by vow to never let that many accumulate before taking care of business. . So here are 2 of them bound washed labeled and on their way to their new home. They are from the same pattern "Road to Bali" by legacy however the 2nd one I made a few errors(design changes) on and had to rethink the plan so I renamed it "Boulevard of broken dreams" I didn't think that conveyed a very positive feel to the new owner so. The label is a walk around the park.

    Thanks for looking

    Lovely quilts. I am currently doing the binding on my quilts by machine. So much easier and looks nice also.

    such beautiful colors.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    What an interesting pattern. Both are vibrant with the great fabric you picked.

    Congrats on the UFO finishing! They're really pretty. That's funny about the broken dreams....you're right, it's not a good name for a quilt you give away!
