    4 new quilts

    I've been busy trying to finish more quilts.

    This one is Penguin Sweets. The pattern is for a wall hanging. I wanted it to be a lap quilt so I enlarged the pattern 150%, then reversed the pattern for 4 of the penguins. As you can see I still have to add sashing & borders.

    This is Monkey Madness. Pattern is in the Fons & Porter Love of Quilting, January/February 2013. I added the blue border because I wanted it a little larger.

    The outside border is sock monkey fabric. How perfect is that! I found some flannel for the backing that also has monkeys on it.

    Can't find my pattern & cannot remember the name of this one. Maybe it's time to clean my sewing room. It too was a wall hanging that I enlarged to make it a lap quilt.

    The beer one is for my SIL who really likes his beer.

    These are some cute little thread catchers I made for some of my quilting buddies. They are made with 2 - 9 1/2" triangles with iron on interfacing on both pieces.

    Everything is pretty, and I must make me some of those thread catchers.
