Three Finishes!

Welcome everyone!  Today is the link up Party from Roses of Inspiration party. Go take a peek and browse not only Stephanie's beautiful blog but there are many links to other ones as well!

Back in January I told on myself to force myself finish all of my UFP's...unfinished projects, you can find that post right Here.  Well I am very happy to report I finished not only One, or two .....but THREE of the quilt tops that needed completed!

Here I was in the process of completed one of them....
I have to tell you if you haven't tried these clips instead of pins you MUST!  I love them and it's so refreshing to not poke myself and bleed all over the place. Seriously a must have! 

Okay so here are pictures of two of the quilts.  I made them for a friend and designed the pattern myself.  I like the colors, they are soft and ladylike.  






Next up is a quilt I started about three or four years ago but never did quilt it and get it on the table.  I had made and finished the 8 placemats that went with it but never got around to finish this one, now I am glad I did, it's now on the table.  I also took a detailed photo of my quilting...love this method, I free minded it...lol that's a new made up word from yours truly, instead of free hand I used my mind and came up with the quilt design for this quilt...hence free minded it.  Okay , okay, now you know I can amuse myself!  Until next time, God Bless you and your home.  Remember God Loves YOU!

  1. I really like the two matching little quilts; the colors are great together. Great gift. And the runner is a nice finish too. I like the quilting you did on this piece; especially around the borders.

  5. Congratulations! My thoughts just ran to an apron that I started years ago! I really need to finish it. I'm sure there are other things as well. It seems that every time I plan to sew, I find I have mending to do!

    1. Thank you so much! I say make some time, even if its only 1/2 hour. I do my things in 1/2 increments, and I try to take one day a week where I really just take a me day and focus on completion. I finally decided to wedge out some time for me....know what I mean?
