12th Completed Quilt

I have had this cute 4th of July fabric for several years.  I was unsure of what I wanted to do with it.  I decided that a denim would make the perfect border. I bought a light denim fabric enough for the borders and the backing.  Luckily I was about 6 inches sorry on the backing.and I added a pieced column to the backing.  Hopefully,  someone I know will have a 4th of July baby

11th Completed Quilt

I started this quilt last year. I  went to a class on the Lemoyne star last spring and then bought the panel in Paducah at the AQS quilt show.  I finished all the stars and pieced all those together.  I recently added the borders and quilted it. The stars quilted in the border are from a tutorial by Lori Kennedy.

The 10th Quilt

I am trying to complete a quilt a week, so that I can practice with my long arm,  and  hopefully use some of my fabric.  Also I am trying to complete some of my UFOS along the way.  I had embroidered the elephants several years ago to make a baby quilt for an elephant lover, but set it aside when I found a cuter pattern.The other picture is the back of the quilt.

My 9th completed quilt this year

I have had this pink butterfly fabric for years.  I use it for the backing also. In fact the complete quilt was made from my stash.  I found this butterfly tutorial at Charm About You: Butterfly block Easy tutorial. 

I still have enough butterfly fabric fir the back of another baby quilt.
