    Here's what I got finished this summer. As you can see I still need work on my points but they are getting better. The animal wall hanging is for one of my nieces, the baseball quilt is for a nephew, the bear paw is for another nephew and the jewel box is for my parents. The purple wall hanging is for me.

    Thanks. My mom's favorite color is green so I knew I had to have a lot of green in it. The yellows just seemed to fit well.

    Beautiful quilts. That's my kind of vacation--sewing, sewing, and more sewing. Thanks for sharing your pictures.

    Love that Bear Paw!!! I can't see anything wrong woth your points. And anyway,that is a forgiving pattern,and they are usually not even seen.

    If the picture was close enough you'd see that a lot of the yellow points were chopped off. I pieced it before I learned that you have to cut those pieces for the 1/2 square triangles bigger than the pattern says. But live and learn. That's why quilting is a journey and not a destination.
