February Finishes

I'm thinking a Flimsie is a finish, right?

Most of these just needed a few more blocks or borders added to
get them ready for the quilter.

 I purchased a charm pack several months ago hoping to make a small Twister
for a baby quilt.  Of course, I didn't have quite enough charms so had to
add a few fabrics from my stash.  
This one will go to the quilter on Saturday.
 I started this Halloween quilt several months ago from left over Halloween fabrics.
It just needed a couple of borders.  My Bee went on a Shop Hop
last week and I found these great lime green and purple fabrics 
that were perfect for another finished flimsie.  
This one is going to the quilter on Saturday too.
 This quilt looks very faded out.  It was started 24 years ago!
Finally got the borders on and a back made.
Off to the quilter on Saturday!!
 My friend, Janine, and I decided to get together once a month to sew.
This was our first project.  We spent a couple hours cutting out the blocks
for both of us.  After she finished with the fabrics, I got the leftovers for my borders.
(Seemed only fair that I took the leftovers since she had purchased all the fabrics.)
The green borders are 2 different fabrics but look great together.
 This is a quilt for a grandson who is graduating this year.  I added the border this past week.
Now I just need to find a backing and it will be off to the quilter too.

This is a small portion of a quilt for a neighbor boy who will be graduating this year.
I used scraps and made a zillion HST's.  Got to find a backing fabric and it's ready too.

Cleaning out my sewing room has really helped me to prioritize just what needs to be done to finish another quilt.  I should be able to keep the quilter busy for a few days this month!

Happy Quilting!                   Lynda

Wow, another slew of quilts, all very different, but lovely non the less. The twister baby quilt is a amazing, I think the white is just what it needed. I have several charm packs and there are several babies coming in our family, so I might just copy you (if I may). I so wish I had a friend to sew with here too. I'm missing my quilting buddies from Singapore like nobody's business.
