A few finishes.....

I want to thank all of you for the kind comments on my last post.  I have been working on a few things - it's time to show you those......

The kids and I made a trip to Colorado in March,  for my nephew's wedding.  Kind of a windy day, but here is the quilt I gave them for a wedding gift.


Later in March, Julie and I took a class, we were pattern testers for Terry Atkinson.  Here is the top for the quilt pattern we tested.  It's called Wanderlust.  It's at the quilters now.


I also got this top pieced, it's a Pieced Tree Pattern called Jelly Jive.  
It uses one Jelly Roll, 
or 40 2 1/2 inch strips.  It's also at the quilter now.......


I planted some flowers.....


And finished the "Growing Up Odd" Quilt.  Great tutorial - just follow the link!

I mainly strip pieced it, and I used 1 1/2 inch strips, rather then 2 inch. 
 I'm keeping this one!

This is my little "cheater" quilt.  Tutorial found here.  It didn't say how much fabric to buy......If I make one again, I will buy more, so the side borders can be wider.  I bought what was left on the bolt, which if I remember correctly was a yard and a third.  

Here's the other side.....

Linking up to Finish It Up Friday.
Oh, and one more quilt at the quilter........ that makes 3 that should be done soon!

I love all these quilts! My favorite is that wedding quilt! My arrows are still in a bag from that day at the class. Someday I'll get it out again. Then I see a pink theme. Such cheery stuff.

Your Growing Up Odd quilt is wonderful! I would keep it, too. In fact, the original is on the bed in my guest room right now. Well done!

WOW.....you have been busy!! AND such great quilts. That Growing Up Odd looks like what I should be doing with my blocks! It has an organized look that I really like....I have my little 4½" blocks mixed with others! Thanks for sharing!

I love the arrow quilt. That must have been fun being a tester for the pattern.
