All in, all DONE!!.....6 & 7

I have had a couple of posts HERE and HERE about my 7 quilt quilting adventure!  I am VERY happy to say that I have now completed all 7!!  I have really loved it.  I have had the opportunity to practice and get much faster at FMQ.  Practice on full sized quilts is always a good thing.

Read clear to the bottom for a great surprise!!! 

#6



I decided to a simple all over meander.  I used a pink variegated 50wt thread.


Trimming after quilting.  You've got to square up your edges!


Can you believe that this is the back of the quilt?



#7!


Ready to start!


Again, the simple meander.


Here's a look at the front and the back of the binding at the same time.


These two beautiful quilt tops were donated by Chris S.  She has been so very generous over the years with her donations.  Thank you so much Chris!


I'm soo exciting to have these quilts all turned in for next years sale!  Thanks Chris, Deborah and Cindy for your generosity in donating these UFOs!!

CLOSED!

I know that you will be glad that you read all the way to the bottom of this post!  It is my one year "blogiversary"!!!  I feel so excited to have made it this far.  I so very much appreciate all the new friends that I have made in this last year.  I'm having a blogaversary GIVEAWAY!

The quilts look great, I thought when I first saw it that the back of the first quilt was the front of the second one! It is an amazing back isn't it, someone has put a lot of hard work into that for sure. Congratulations on your blogaversary!! xx

Besides following your amazing progress on IG, I am also a Blogger follower! You have been so focused getting these seven wonders finished! I'd love to win your beautiful fabric. I'm not sure Australian custom would like those needles though- they can be rather difficult, I'm afraid!
