3 More Finishes

I can't say much about these 3 except that they are UGLY!!! Well, this one is not too bad and I learned a lot about quilting on minky so it's not a total loser...




This was my first attempt at hand quilting was also an epic fail. So it has been in a box for about 8 years...finally just bound it so I can make it go away. I think this will be a play quilt for the kids to take outside for picnics or something.



When I first got my longarm I bought some quilt tops on ebay that are ugly as sin! I still have 2 more that are on the 'to quilt' hangers. I thought 'who cares if I ruin this mess, it's already trashed'. But it was great to practice on. I closed the binding up on this one and will donate it the charity quilts at the next guild meeting...



So even though it is embarrassing to post these picks, I will still claim them as finishes for February and I am happy to make more room on my 'to do' shelves.

Someone will love them and snuggle under them. Congratulations on three more finishes.

You go girl! Awesomeness (even if you think they are ugly).

So, question. Well, a comment and a question. First the comment. I absolutely LOVE what you quilted front and center in that bottom pictures -- the daisies and tulips. So, remember that quilt I'm SLOWLY making for LadyBug? Don't you think that design would look spectacular in that quilt?

Way to go and I agree with Shay, they will be loved by someone.

There's somebody for every quilt - and actually, in the pictures, none of those look so bad! Even your hand quilting has charm!! Congratulations on the finishes!!

They don't look that bad! :)

I actually have my 1st "large" quilt top still hiding in the closet these past 10 years since I kinda made a boo boo and didn't like it as much as when I started it. I've made the decision to make that a picnic blanket too! lol
