Friday (or so) Finishes

I haven't been sharing much
but I have been sewing a little.

I finished this quilt top for the

There is Miss Molly, my little (big) helper.  
Out here in western Kansas the wind never stops.  To take a photo of a flimsy, you must allow for the wind and just get on your knees to take a shot looking up.  lol

I finished this bed quilt for a friend.

She had the denim squares and the blue fabric and asked me to put them together for her niece.
This will be for a high school graduation gift.  It's big enough for a full sized bed, but will be plenty large enough for a dorm room bed for next year.

My friend had purchased the denim squares from an individual.  I think they were all supposed to be 6" but some were larger and some smaller.  Ugh.  That was a challenge.
Some even had spandex in them.  Another ugh.   I didn't use those.... 
My friend will let me do the designing and purchasing next time she needs a quilt.  This one took WAY longer than it should have.

My friend also wanted a quillow  (quilt with a pocket to fold it into a pillow) for another niece.

This time I chose the fabrics... wink.  This is for a photography buff who is graduating this month.  The camera fabric is Michael Miller.  I used minky fabric on one side and camera fabric on the other.

I was queen of my modern block party in April and have been receiving blocks in the mail.  It's so fun and I hope to start putting the quilt together as soon as all the blocks arrive.

Have a happy May day!

The blue had to be a challenge, but it turned out beautifully and the quillow fabrics are PERFECT!

The bright stars are so pretty too.

Windy Kansas ... gets that's why it was Dorothy's home?! Your shares were worth waiting for - great colours and designs all around. That quillow is cute - never made one of those.

Your photography is as beautiful as your quilts ! That was so sweet of you to help your friends who don't sew.
