    Woo hoo, Cutie! Go, Cutie, Go!
    Where do you get the energy, girlfriend. Is it from all those bananas, my pink friend? hmmm, they do have lots of potassium.
    Even with the strip piecing, these are little parts, and the back is as interesting as the front. whoody hoo!
    Love that close inspection there...but keeping a safe distance from your meow! :wink:

    That is so neat and detailed, I like the way you alternated the coloring in it.

    It must be the banana, I think I have gone over the edge into banana land, I am considering cutting some strips 1". that is a scary thought. We will see what happens with the 2" strips as well.

    It was origionally supposed to be light and dark but then managed to get some med in on the light side. I tend to get sidetracked very easily.

    wow!! I love it and it looked so big until you put that penny on there :lol:
    the back looks pretty neat also, like a design of its own. They would make beautiful doll quilts or even a nice lap quilt if you wanted to keep going! :wink:

    You are right, and if I kept going I would not have any scraps left. In fact I woul dhave to start lopping off ends of my stash for more, I don't think I will go enough to make a lap quilt, at least not in this go, I have to many other things planned to spend that much time on this.

    It can become an addicting though.

    Wow! The backside is as pretty as the frontside. Love the Fur Ball on the back, too. Nice touch.

    Love how you finished them! What are your plans for them now? Are you going to hang them as a grouping? That would be pretty on the wall.

    Oh, they are really great! I love them all, but the one with the orange border just stands out. Great choice of borders.

    I have been hard at work most of the day, which is a change for me, there was thunder and lightening etc so had to keep the computer off.

    See how hard I am working at putting some stippling on the mini's!

    So then since I was so hard at work I decided I might as well push on and finish them up. So did a little more and then tossed binding on them all.

    And then, That is not all, I managed to slip in the OBW one as well. And so it is done! so that if four complete projects done today, I must be on some kind of roll.

    The funny part is I was having issues doing it on the small machine (before I got the bright idea to do them on the embroidery machine) so I tossed i ton the big table,

    just a little big of overkill!

    Your sewing is beautifully done--wrong side tells all! When using 1 " strips I trim seams to about 1/8th of an inch--less bulk, piecing lays flatter. Love the contrast of dark and light.

    I think you must qualify for the prize - getting the most quilts completed in one day. Well done.
