    UFOs begging to become real quilts :)

    I had some UFOs just hanging around pleading with me to finish before starting anything new! So here they are.

    The lil twister doesn't have a home yet.
    The bargello is for my dd in Canada
    The Magic Carpet Ride is for DGD in Canada and matches the fabric in her older sister's quilt.
    THe blue one is a combination of Mosaic Tile and Old Maid's Puzzle Variation called Earth and Sky for my DSIL

    Doesn't it feel wonderful to actually take some UFO's off the list? Your quilts are beautiful! So ALL your UFO's are done now, right?
