    Two New Finishes

    The first quilt is from blocks from the last Boom Swap. It's a lap quilt.

    The second one (red) was made from a b&w panel I've had for years before figuring out what to do with it. It's totally "me"!

    Love the Boom quilt and must say you received some awesome blocks from your fellow Boomers! You've certainly mastered the QAYG method and your Juki is serving you quite well! Love your quilting motif. It's marvelous

    And your Red, White and Black quilt is super, too! Lovely work, as always

    Your quilts are very nice and I especially like the house quilt. Your work is really so well done. It is nice to have finished quilts.

    If the black and white quilt is you, the paisley quilt is me. I love paisley. I incorporated a few blocks of red paisley in a nine-patch I'm sewing this week. Great quilts!

    I agree with Christine (themerklefamily)...you have certainly mastered the QAYG method and love the quilted leaves in your green border.

    I love the b&w quilt with the red accent. Terrific job on both.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    I really like both quilts! I love paisley too. I have tons of black and white fabric to make a quilt with a spot of red and yours has inspired me. Sorry to be so dumb but I don't know what a Boom quilt is. I love yours! What is a Boom quilt?

    The Boom is a block swap on this board. People trade fabric and make blocks for each other. My fabric was the paisley, and the other swappers added their own coordinating fabric and made a 12.5" block for me. If you look under "Member Swaps" in the Home menu, you can look for the Sooner Boom swap and the Later Boom swap. Sooner just finished and Later is almost done. You can read along the threads to get a good idea of what it is.

    Fun projects that made for lovely finishes. The first really has some interesting blocks. I think the cityscape is simply charming. I hope you enjoy your new treasures.
