Reached another goal....

Two more UFO's have bit the dust.

The binding is all hand stitched down on my black and cream toile quilt.
So here is the completed quilt. 

The binding is, also, on the Painted Daisy quilt.

....and here is the completed quilt.

Of course my goal was to get these two done before the 10th when the new Beyond the Cherry Trees block was available, but I missed it by only one day. I guess if I hadn't taken a couple days off to rest the 'ole wrists, I would have been ahead of schedule, but that's ok.  I still think I am doing good.

  4. Very good finishes! I have a piece of red toile that needs to go into something, this might be the ticket. Can't wait to see your cherry tree block.

  5. The quilts look fantastic. I love the toile in the first one. Two great finishes. I must go back and check out the Cherry Trees, that one's on my list.

  6. I love both of your quilts. Especially that daisy one. Adorable.

  7. They're gorgeous, as well as your scalloped borders! You're really moving on with your UFOS!


I said I wouldn't......

I meant it when I said it. But I failed and ended up doing it. I picked up the knitting needles instead of getting back to my pile o...
