    Some Recent Finishes

    I finished these four recently. All four were supposed to be charity quilts to donate through my local quilting group, but I fell in love with the third one (the 16 patch) and hubby fell in love with the last one. Who would have ever guessed the man would like purple? Anyway, we are donating the first two! I'll keep sewing to make up for the ones we kept....

    beautiful finishes, great workmanship too
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Your quilts are all beautiful! I would have a hard time to choose one over the others.

    All are very nice, but I like the first one best. I like your choice of fabrics and pattern.

    These are all great. I don't know which one I would choose if I had to pick just one. How kind of you to donate your work to charity.

    Ha... if you are going through chemo or an organ transplant, I would. That's who will get these... hence the bright, cheery colors.

    All of them are beautiful. It is hard for me to donate quilts. I donated 5 and not knowing how they will be used makes them hard for me to just donate.
