June UFO finishes!

Well here it is that time of the month again!  I had a very productive month this month even though I managed to squeeze in a vacation…  DSCN0963

These are my first three finishes…  The one on the left was a Civil War mini I started in a class many years ago in the UQG’s annual meeting taught by Donna Starley.  It demonstrated how the same blocks looked totally different by where you used color placement.  I needed to border quilt and bind it.  Ta da!  Done!  The center mini quilt was given to me as a gift from my friend Denise…  Isn’t it pretty?  I got it quilted and bound.  And last but not least in the picture is a paper pieced bird I made a long time ago from the book “Backyard Birds”.  Even those these 3 quilts are mini, I quilted them the way I would quilt a large quilt.  DSCN0964

I bought these vintage blocks when I attended the “Dear Jane” retreat in Shipshewana, Indiana many years ago.  I was leery to do anything with them until I saw some vintage quilts machine quilted at UQSM last year.  They were beautiful!  I sashed/bordered them with linen and quilted them using some more traditional patterns.  I hope the gal who created them is looking down pleased that her handiwork is finished!

Poukie and Milo had to help hold this one down for the picture!  I had this one all done for a couple of years except for the binding.  This UFO Challenge has been great to get me going on my stacks of quilts that just needed bindings.  The bad part is that they’re all done now, so my finishes should slow down a lot.  Oh well!  I still have oodles of UFO’s to work on!!!dscn0978.jpg

Here’s my final finish!  This one took a lot more work to get to this place…  It was simply a stack of blocks that I received in an online swap several years ago.  The group was called “Traveling Threads” and we mailed out fabric packs to everyone in the group.  When it was our month to be the “Queen” they made 2 blocks with our fabrics and sent them back to us.  These were the blocks that I received…  My theme was “Anything you might see in a Garden”  My colors were a little bland, but I still love this quilt!  Pink and green has always been a favorite color combination…  Thanks to the ladies who participated!!!

 

Thanks to all who have visited!  I hope to see you again next month!  Smooches, and happy sewing!
