Finishing a couple of UFO quilts

While it has been hot outside I have been able to finish 2 quilt projects

I finished piecing my Strawberries 'n Cream quilt designed by mtrosedesigns  and it is my quilters  YEAHHH!
I am very happy how it came out and the Fig Tree Strawberry fields revisited fabric is just gorgeous.

I was also able to finish SPOOKY Delights table runner
This was a free pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop and designed by Bunny Hill.
I used mostly fabric from my stash .

It is quilted and just needs binding

Just love this bat and witch flying across the moon

I chose this fabric from my stash for the backing

You know my love of gardening........Everything morning I go out to water and  see what needs to be snipped ;-)

4th of July weekend

I finished sewing my Stars and Strips Quilt together  just in time for the 4th of July !!
This is a Thimble blossoms pattern by Camille Roskelley and I used all Vintage Picnic fabric.
Such a fun and easy quilt to make

I also made this quilt for a wedding gift for my Nephew and his wife to be .
These fabrics  and quilt are out of my comfort zone but is totally their taste with the modern look with Kaffe  Fassett fabrics in the burgundy and purple fabrics

Both quilts are my quilters now and I will be sure to post pictures of both of them when I get them back.  Meanwhile I need to prepare my binding.

This is a very special weekend for our family...

My Grandson Nico turns 1 on July 4th and the kids are having a party on Saturday.

 As you can see Nico is getting ready for his big day and is trying on Party hats :-D

Wishing everyone a Happy and Safe 4th of July !!

Happy Sewing !
