Quilts Finished For Friday

At last count I had 12 un-quilted tops on my on pile! I made a promise to myself to get them finished and this past week I crossed two off the list. They are both orphan block quilts the blue one I showed a few days ago and then there is this one, a compilation of the leftover fabrics from three other quilts!


The backing too is left over fabrics from other projects and as has become my habit of late the binding is cut from the extra fabric from the back- I like scrappy bindings especially on a scrappy quilt! It's quilted with red thread and peacock feathers.



Now still there are another ten, and I will try not to add to the pile until it gets a little shorter. Try, I said, the operative word...............

You have a real knack for taking orphan blocks and making them look like they were made to go together....great work!
