Patriotic Quilts

Two years ago, at a local retreat, we exchanged fabric to make this lovely patriotic quilt. With each person at a different skill level, this was a great way to share with each other, and have a good quality quilt. I finished mine last summer. Then, with some of the leftover fabric, I made this quilt:

It measures 20x16, and will be quilted and bound soon. I was so excited to get this done in just 2 days. I think it will be fun to hang up. The full size quilt measures approximately40X56. Have you done a mini of a full size quilt you have made?

Mystery Quilt Finished

I've been working on a few things lately, and I finally finished this mystery quilt from our local guild from 2008-2009. It had a lot of work to it - each step taking about 8 hours. However, it is now ready for the back to be made and then quilted.

I also made the backs for two other quilts, and I am hoping to baste them next week and quilt them. They are big - 84x84 and 96x96. I have not quilted anything that big, so I will see how it goes. I have done a twin-size quilt before (several actually), and I am hoping I can do these. I will post pictures when they are quilted.

Also, I finished the flower applique quilt, but it is basted and ready to quilt. I will be doing that soon, and will post a picture when it is quilted and bound.
