2 UFO quilt finishes

I am happy to say that I have 2 of my  UFO quilts   finished !

Thanks to Cheryl   So many quilts , So little time ! blog they are quilted and I just finished the binding on the last one last night.  Cheryl was so sweet  to offer  to quilt these for me on her new Sashiko machine by Babylock .  She thought that these would be good practice for her and  she did a amazing job  !


It looks hand quilted doesn't it ?

Hampton Ridge month # 4 blocks done

I am  trying to keep up with  Hampton Ridge BOM  blocks. 

I am glad to say that I completed my month # 4 blocks  !   Here is all of my blocks I have made so far. 16 down  25 to go !   I love how each block is so different and how every month I never know what  blocks I am going to make next and what fabric they are going to send me.

 These are the 4 blocks I made for month #4  

  I wanted to show you how different they look when I do this !  

This is how they will be laid out in the quilt.

I finished my blocks just in time !  Month #5 just arrived , look I get to make 5 blocks this time  and just look as these yummy fabrics I get to play with  :-D

Our weather has been in the 70's and things are really starting to bloom.  I will try to post some pictures of my gardens Tuesday.  Oh how I love Spring !
