Actually finishing some Quilts!

I started and finished the baby quilt last week and finally, after probably a year and a half, finished the queen size quilt shown below. Yeah, sometimes, they're quick and easy...sometimes I have brain blockages. The baby quilt was my first attempt at "machine quilting". Turned out okie, I think. The queen size quilt is hand tied and quilted along the edge for a little extra stability. It's good to finally get that one done.

Those quilts are amazing Cat...very pretty. Your an artist.

I know what you mean about "brain blockages". I have a quilt which is almost finished all the pieces are sewn together. All that's left to complete is 75% of the quilting and the edging where the top meets the bottom of the quilt. Maybe the quite of the winter will provide time so it can be finished this year.

I Love Love Love both of these quilts. I haven't done the machine quilting yet... that takes a special machine, right? It looks gorgeous and I really love the fabrics you found for the queen... truly fabulous!
