So many projects, so little time!

I haven't posted in awhile because I have truly been trying to mark things off my "to-do" list. We've had birthdays and weddings, babies born, road trips...in between all the busy-ness, here's what I've been working on... Turned this...
...into this.
Using my new Twister tool. Fun fun. Except, I'm having trouble finding the motivation to add any borders. This may be one of the quilt tops I use to practice on when I get my long arm machine. Someday.
Finished this pillow a couple of weeks ago for a sweet friend who had her 90th birthday on July 3rd.

You guys saw this one (still on the frame) in a previous post and I never got around to showing the finished quilt. So here it is with it's teddy bear companion.
Also finished this one from the Moda Bake Shop.

My 1st bias binding. Not as difficult as I thought it would be.
This latest finish is for a 3 yr old friend. This cool quilt was featured on the cover of Quilts and More magazine. I had just bought an Olfa circle cutter and could hardly wait to use it. This quilt was so fast and fun to make. It's the 1st pattern I've made that I KNOW I'll be making more of.
The backing is pink flannel to make it extra snuggly. I went ahead and washed it to see how pretty the raw edges would turn out. Love it.

I still have a loooooong list to conquer. [Taking a deep breath...]
Have a blessed day.
Darlene :)

  1. Love the quilts, you have been busy. The first one is really cool, I'm liking that one. Hubby would love the OU quit. Don't think I will show him that one, because, he would want me to make him one. Guess that goes to the bottom of my list.
