Yahoo!

Wow, I have at last gotten some things finished, or good progress made at least! Above are my edge pieces for the Orange Crush Mystery Quilt.
And here are my twirling, swirling stars...

And here are my album blocks! Wow, a lot of work, because I did most of it today. Now, (to those quilters who are doing this quilt), are we setting them all together, or with any other blocks inbetween? Can I hurry and get ahead and set them together? I guess I will have to wait and see the next steps in the mystery.



This little quilt is a baby quilt for a friend at work's baby...machine done all of it and I am glad to have it done!


I finished this little postcard quilt...wrong season, I know, but it was started last fall! So I am glad it is done too.





And my favorite...a little heart quilt, hand quilted and appliqued, except for the fancy machine quilting along the little block edges. Fun!




This quilt went to college with our son. I made it about 5 years ago. It has appliqued borders.






Also, this one is our son's as well. I made three of this pattern, just alike: one red, one blue, and one pink.







This is my son's graduation quilt, quilted by Darcie! I love it...
So how is that for a lot of pictures and progress! Hope everyone had a marvelous holiday this weekend...

Mr. Son is quite the fortunate young man. And whomever steals his heart will be the luckiest-in-love in Texas! ;-)

Two more (near) finishes are on their way to you! Can't wait to hear what you think.

Enjoy your day, Julie!
