UFO #2 (Top) Completed

Ok, blogging is a good thing for me. It's definitely keeping me motivated to finish things. Today I finished my Turning Twenty top. I'm pleased with how it turned out. Pinks and browns, definitely colors I wouldn't put together. Ignore the wrinkles in the picture. I was having to move quickly because there was a big fat cat getting ready to pounce.

I plan on keeping this quilt and using it my guest room. My real hope is to get it finished and on the bed for my MIL comes to visit at the end of February.

"Indian Summer" is the name of the quilt hanging on the wall in that room. I was the lucky winner of this quilt. It was made in 2003 by the Olathe Quilt Guild. I used to belong to that guild before the munchkin came into the picture. I keep thinking about joining again, but just haven't done it. I did help with this quilt by making some of the flying geese.

This weeks projects:
  • Bags for the photographer
  • 3 simple purses for 3 little girls
  • Jelly Roll baby quilt that's 3/4 done

While I'm not usually a pink and brown girl (I gave that up when the 60's went by) that Turning 20 is very nice. And your 'winning' quilt is spectacular. I keep buying tickets for raffle quilts - maybe one day one will be mine.

Good quilty wishes -

Love the pink and brown! This turned out very nicely. Your sewing group sounds like a lot of fun. I need to do something like that. What a stroke of luck winning that beautiful quilt. Some talented folks in that guild! Enjoy the day!
