    Vicki, beautiful bright quilts! Especially like that you used every last scrap of fabric.

    Thanks for all the nice comments, everyone...helps to spur me on!

    I forgot to say I'm loving all the finishes I've seen on here...it helps one to get going on them, as others have said.

    My Daughters Table Topper

    This is a quilt I started in 2010..it is actually a twin size, but my daughter uses it on her Dining room table with a clear plastic cover on it! It was a cheater fabric that I really loved. So all I did was sandwich and quilt it! My daughter loves it more then the pieced quilts I have made her....go figger!

    MGW, it's a very nice cheater fabric.... and really fits well for a tablecloth with the fruit. It's another UFO finished and out of the way..... Yeah!!!

    I agree with others..... it helps to see everyone getting things done. I need to get back at it..... but company coming....... in due time I guess.

    I've been away from the boards for most of the month - I THOUGHT I'd be productive in my quilting room, but...not so much. (I do have two finishes for July that I need to post. I just need to remember how to do it!) Now, as for all I've seen while reviewing the posts...

    WOW, all of the work that everyone has put in is just amazing!!

    Nanna-up-north - LOVE the cabin quilt. I love how the slashing and putting back together came out.
    QuilterMomma - beautiful work, I must say. The quilting...gorgeous (I'm a little green, if'n you know what I mean!)
    createfourpaws - the Tshirt quilt is so cute. I'm glad they were patient with you. You certainly had a valid reason for taking so long to finish it! I hope you are well and raring to go now.
    VickiM - three finishes...wow! They are all beautiful and I'm impressed with how you were able to use all your fabric.
    missgigglewings - the table topper is darling. Great idea to put plastic over the top of it. I never would have thought of that, just complained about how often I would have to wash it!!

    I know when we finish something that we started years ago, we can't believe it's take us so long to do it, but I think it's cool to say "I started this five years ago (insert your own time frame)" and be able to say that it's DONE.

Size:  1.60 MBJuly finishes (nothing like waiting until the last minute!!). Pattern is called St. Tropez. It was a free pattern from Art Gallery Fabrics (designed by Pat Bravo).

Size:  1.61 MBThis pattern is made from some of my scraps. The pattern is called Modern Dreams and it's from QUILT Magazine. Unfortunately there is no date on the bottom of the page I photocopied, but I think it's at least a couple of years old.

    I like those quilts michelle. They show personality. I like the bottom one better. For a scrappy, it is pretty organized, makes it smooth on the eyes. I was watching the quilt show today on value, hue, and saturation. I think that helps us in our scrappy quilts even though they are not organized if we keep these in mind when putting together. That is what I think makes these quilts work great.

    I have 2 finishes to add... one was in July but I never got it posted. Busy month of travel and then a bout of cellulitis in my knee that kept me off my feet for several days. The antibiotics are starting to do their thing and I've been able to sew again the last few days. Hoping for good things in August...

    These are 2 of 5 Charm Quilt UFOs in my closet... simple patchwork using 6.5" novelty squares from online swaps. The layout I used on #1 I really like - I think the background squares show off the fun prints better. I quilted them both with walking foot freehand waves. These are UFO Finishes #33 & #34 for 2012 (and #49 and #50 since 10/1/2012).

    Guess what? I'm straddling the halfway point of my UFO Collection with 51 to go!!

    QuilterMomma - your quilting is so well done! I really like the those cute Umbrella girls.

    Nanna-up-north - I love how you used the those fabrics! And the quilting is great too. It would look right at home in my MN Up North house!

    missgigglewings - that makes a great table cloth! Some fabrics shouldn't be cut up and that is one of them.

    michelleoc - both of your quilts are gorgeous! I especially love that red paisley fabric. What a nice gift.

    Createfourpaws - I think this is prettiest T shirt quilt I have ever seen! The sashing around the shirts really adds a lot.

    VickiM - way to go with 3 finishes! I particularly like the mix of border fabric and pinwheels on the 1st one - something I wouldn't think to do. Eye-catching!

    Sorry for the multiple posts everyone but I'm so behind... going page by page to catch up.

    asimplelife--I was wondering where I saw your I spy quilt and it's on your blog! I do enjoy following it. OBTW like the stacked sticks or stick stacks (whatever) you are working on now. I can see it with a cream/tan main color and jewel tones especially turquoise rust and browns for a SW look. Also a black main color with KT and Jo Morton type fabrics. Or how about a cream floral and some Civil War fabs!

    I really like that pattern too (Strip Stacks by G.E. Designs)! I'm including a pic to show the rest of you... the blocks are huge so they sew up quickly and I think the vertical design is really different and eye catching. There are many "not so pretty" scraps hidden in these blocks!

    I love ALL of of your ideas - I have been thinking batiks as well as a Christmas version since I already have a bunch of the coins (2.5" x 5.5") needed from a swap I did a few years ago.

    Asimplelife - I really like your quilt. Wish I had seen it before I started sewing my 2-1/2" scrap batiks together. However I'm liking what I have so far. Just am going to need about as many more as I've done already to have it big enough for anything. Seemed like a lot more scraps when they were just all in a pile!

    I am excited to finally post the photo of my finished giant t-shirt quilt. My dh mailed it off before I got a pic of the finished quilt so I had to wait for one from the happy new owner. Here it is in all it's monster sized glory! LOL

    Sorry it's so blurry, it didn't look so bad in smaller size. L.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Thank you nanna-up-north! I'm kind of amazed myself.

    How big is that quilt wildyard? I don't think I've ever seen a 2 story quilt!

    I believe it finished up at 156 x 134.... I offered to make 2 quilts from the shirts but he really wanted them all in one big one... so that's what he got. LOL
