My 20th Quilt

This baby quilt is a panel with serveral borders that I finished last week. I'm trying to complete a quilt, and I think I  should actually be on my 22nd quilt this week.  I have a couple of quilt tops that I made a few years ago.  A wall hanging and a baby quilt.  I hope to finish those this week end to get back on track.

My 19 the quilt

I saw this quilt on paducah at the quilt show.  It's called Rolly.  The original had a black scarf,  but I thought a red tone would be good.  It's 50 x 76 inches.

The 18th quilt

Last week's quilt was finished today.  The pattern is called 9 birds. I call my version: 9 Birds  Extended. I wanted a larger quilt,  so I added another row of 3 more birds.

My 17th quilt

This is a miniature quilt,  23 x24 inches. I had visions of making several of these for  gifts. After making the center area, I decided that making tiny quilts was not my thing. I  was so traumatized that I put it down a couple years ago. I added the borders and  finished it this week.  I have a goal of completing a quilt a week this year.  I have been out of town for the past 3 weeks.  The last 2 UFO s helped me stay on track with my goal. 

PS I really admire those who make miniature quilts.

My 16th completed quilt

This is the quilt that I completed last week.  I completed the spaceship baby quilt top a couple years ago, but I needed to find the backing. It was just a matter of taking it with me when I shopped.  I kept forgetting, and then the quilt was forgotten.  Not anymore.  The backing is a red tone on tone with a swirly pattern.
