    I really like your art quilt, QuilterMomma. The colors are so pleasing and that is some beautiful quilting!

    Such a pretty finish, Belfrybat!

    Belfrybat, love the soft colors in your quilt. I just want to cuddle it
    QM, nice landscape...that is one thing I have never tried, well that and paper pieced beauty.
    I swore to myself this year these UFO's were going to be done so they could be donated to a worthy cause. Here's 2 more to add to the 3 I just posted. These were made from the candy swap too. Sewed the binding on or they wouldn't be done. Have to show you a pic our littlest grand daughter. She's been walking for about 2 1/2 weeks and going great guns! Myla will be a year old July31st. Can't wait, she'll be here for 8 days on the 30th of this monthName:  DSCF3477.JPG

    I love all of the scrappy quilts everyone has completed, OH so pretty!!! That is my focus for the next few years. To do several of the scrappy quilts I had on my wish list, (I have 2 completed). Keep completing the UFO's everyone.

    I decided to complete a UFO RWB table runner. I have 12 days. I can do this!!!

    My gosh, how precious she is! Lucky Grandmother!

    Congratulations on your two latest UFO finishes. As a lover of all things scrappy, and all quilts made from candy squares, these are high on my favorites list. Toot, Toot!

    Thank you all for the nice things about my art piece. I am nearly done with one UFO that is a gift which has to be mailed and to the person by Thursday. I am still quilting it. YIKES! At least it will be a finish for this month. May be my only one at that. We shall see. Leaving on vacation for 10 days. Will be more shopping than finishing. LOL

    I am hand-quilting a Pineapple Blossom quilt. It's not likely to get done in June but maybe early July. I sit on our deck in my rocking chair and do it. I enjoy hand quilting and sitting outside is a plus. Can't stay out too long because I burn easily...either that or I tan in some areas and just redden/burn in dry-skin areas. Can't win.
    Always be kind.

    Well I finally got it done. After more than a year, last three weeks torture it seemed, I finished this beauty. It is Sweetheart Houses by Shabby Fabrics. I even put the embellishments on. All the buttons and pearls, I even added an eye on the bird as an extra because I thought it needed it. I did machine stitch the binding down because it needed done today so could be mailed. It is not going in a show so I am good. At least one UFO done this month!!!!!

    UFO Done, finally!

    Hey all, I finally have a finish for June. I thought it would never be done, mainly because I tried a new to me technique--adding piping ---which then meant hand sewing the binding down on the back, which was made harder by using black thread on the black binding---I finally had to get my jeweler's magnifiers to be able to see. First photo is front, second is back and third is detail showing piping since it doesn't want to show up in the other photos.

    It's about 49" square and parts of it have been sitting around for at least 6 years...

    QMomma...congrats on the finish. Your perseverance paid off. Lovely quilt!

    Rob...nice finish! Really like the back and I think the circular quilting is a good fit.

    QuilterMomma, that is totally charming. I love the embellishments!

    Rob, what a great finish, front and back. I tried to pick out a favorite block but can't -- they're all wonderful.

    I love it QM! I hope you got my address right. I'd hate to see that get lost in the mail. He he.

    Now that is striking rryder. I love the play with colors. The circular quilting gives it motion. Nicely done. Now that you got that piping down, show me please.

    Rob, great finish. Like how you used circular quilting on those blocks and the back looks just as good as the front.
