Does that feel good or what! Yes, it definitely does feel good. These three are all finished and stacked up waiting for a bigger pile to donate. I told a bit more about them in this blog post.
The churn dash blocks Deb, aka Wonky Girl, sent. I bordered this with a shades of blue stripe, which I also ran through the backing. You can see that in the picture above, bottom right. This one will go to the USO at the airport here in Houston.
This is one I made quite a while back, now it has its binding and is ready to go It will go to Quilts of Compassion for their next "deployment".
The backing is a funny kind of print, but I like it. You can see the nice feathers Peggy quilted in this shot.
This one is Mary Johnson's pattern "Four Patch Stars". The link will take you to the page for that pattern. She has lots of patterns and they are free, and more importantly they are very clearly written and easy to use. She is a generous blogger!
I like everything about this one. The border is a red, white and blue print given to me by Wonky Girl, another very generous blogger, and there's even a red, white and blue stripe for the binding.
The backing is a pretty blue on blue print, don't remember where I got it, but I had a lot. I also backed Deb's churn dash blocks with it.
I have more on the quilt assembly line (I don't really have one, it just seems as if I do sometimes!) I'll let you know when there's another finish.
It is a beautiful, sunny and very hot day here in Houston. Summer has arrived. I'm not tired of seeing the sun yet. All those rainy days made me appreciate dry weather. Of course I'm also really thankful for air conditioning!
I hope your week is starting off well and that it's a good one for you!
Hugs and kisses,
