I've been working on finishing up quilts that have been laying around in the closet. Most are tops. This one was already sandwiched and basted I just had to rip out some quilting that I didn't like, and that's why it was just sitting. I made this about 2 years ago and never finished it. It was for a family member who had just had a baby. But I just wasn't crazy about it. So I made them something else. I finally finished this quilt last week and I think it did turn out pretty cute after all.
I had this top for years too. Just sitting and waiting. My mom wanted it, so I finished it up for her over the weekend. It's from Eleanor Burns Underground Railroad Sampler book. The blocks are not in the order that supposedly tells the story because I used to use this top to cover an open closet we used to have. I layed the blocks out so my favorites were showing. This was a fun quilt and I plan on making one for myself. You know, on that ever long and growing list that us quilters have!
I still have to quilt this one from last year's Old Red Barn Co.'s quilt along.
My first whirlygig quilt is all quilted and I am hand stitching the binding down now. I have another one in progress. I feel like I'm getting caught up on some things and that feels good.

I haven't had much time for sewing lately but was able to finish a few small things. I finished up the stars quilt I was working on. I really love the way this turned out! I plan on making a queen size with similar fabrics (someday)!
I also made this cute little needle case from the book American Doll Quilts by Kathleen Tracy.
It was such a quick and easy sew. About 10 minutes start to finish.
I'm trying to get a few things finished up that have been laying around for a while before I start anything new. I have to get my whirlygig quilted. I already started another one. I know, I can't seem to help myself. I also have a snowball quilt in progress with Whimsy fabric. So those I am trying to work on as I have time and I need to quilt 3 others. I hope to get all of that finished before i start anything else. We'll see!
Hope everyone is well. Have a great day!
