Finishes 4, 5 and 6!!!

FINALLY! I finished our RUFFLE quilts! I first saw this idea here and started collecting those beautiful vintage sheets for our throws. I was making one for both girls and one for myself so we could all sit and watch movies with our 'girly quilts'. My plan was to give these to my girls for Christmas in 2010 but I quit sewing on them because I hurt my back. I was so discouraged that I couldn't give these to my girls that I put them in a laundry basket and there they stayed. I had everything cut and ready to start sewing.

In my Year of FINISHED UFO's~ this one was one of high priority to me. I sewed ruffles and more ruffles and more ruffles! I broke needles because my ruffler was so busy, it would jiggle the alignment off and my needle would hit metal or the sheets were too dense and I didn't want to slow down! I had tension issues, thread breaking, sewer problems and many other 'life issues' come at me all at once while working on these for the past week--- but I did it! I finished our ruffle quilts! I am in love with each one all for different reasons! Sew-- here they are:
All 3 of them with their backing sheet
I learned-- sew on ONE ruffle at a time and pin the next one!
These are HEAVY!
One VERY happy little girl!
and one very happy doggy!
