    Those look great! I love the pattern and the fabric really complements your work.
    The people who get them are going to love them!

    tying is when you layer the quilt as usual for quilting but you take thread (I use 6 strands of embroidery floss) or yarn and tie the layers together - look at the smaller quilt - you will see yellow ties on it. this takes the place of the actual quilting. i do it if i need something done quickly. i prefer quilting but for a play quilt i wanted there before she is too old :) i decided to tie instead. all the others i'll hand quilt.

    this pattern in yellow brick road - almost done the right way - i do not like working with the pattern - for some reason i was not able to really follow the directions - maybe because i was in a hurry and i had two kids who needed my attention as i was doing them :)??? i much prefer turning twenty which is very similar.

    the blue one is my favorite, then the green, but i had the most fun with the pink/purple one. didn't have to buy ONE INCH of fabric - all of it was in my stash already!

    Very nice! The pink is my favorite, I just love the colors together.

    Nothing wrong with tying your quilts! I used to tie all of mine. But I always seemed to stall when I got to that point. Since I discovered spray baste and a walking foot, my projects actually get finished in a much quicker timeframe!

    My next feat will be to try out Sharon Schamber's binding method...it sure looks really nice when finished! :D

    Nice quilts. I have made a lot of Yellow Brick Road quilts too. They are quick and easy to do and I love to use lots of fabrics in a quilt so fat quarter patterns are nice. You did a great job on those, thanks for sharing
