2 more finishes

YIPPEE here are the 2 quilts I finished this week.

The green border on this fabric is great, but it was hard to stitch with, I kept going cross eyed! Those little nine patches are 2 1/2 inch squares, with 9 x 3/4" squares...what was I thinking?? I love the quilting on this with the multi coloured thread!

This one is being donated as a raffle prize for school. We have our Summerfest (school fete) next Saturday. I was panicked that I would not get it finished in time, but yesterday I worked really hard on it!

I love the backing of this one, a panel I bought back in Australia. As we are at an International School, I thought this was really appropriate. I quilted "in the ditch" on the front, and then just to add a personal touch, I quilted around the map of Australia! (it probably not easy to see in this picture...but I did it in yellow thread.
Why not, it's my quilt! :)

#5 Angel - Faith

Number 5 angel complete. A bit slow going this week...with so much football fever, late nights watching games on the German TV (my German is getting better), early mornings, not much stitching done in the evenings!
now...onto Number 6..She is called Happiness.

3 UFO's

I am determined to finish these 3 quilts in the next few weeks.

This one is 1997 I made it originally for the side of a bag to carry my quilting cutting mat. But I didn't like it, so I dismantled it, and it has sat like this for many years. It just needs a backing and binding, and I think it will make a good table runner!

This one is from May 2001.

and lastly...

This one is from 2004.

I can almost see the bottom of the UFO box! YIPPEE!!

Stay tuned on the progress....
