First post and some finished UFO's!

I am going to try this and see what happens!

I started decluttering the house and could NOT part with any of my sewing stuff! Lo & behold, I found PLENTY of UFO's in those tubs that I decided I *have to finish them! Starting with the most recent "halos of guilt" I decided to tackle my daughters' quilts that I started the summer of 2011 when they went to camp.

I started with the smaller of my daughters' quilts. My younger daughter wanted a zigzag quilt and likes teal. Since I fell in love with the "Summer House by Lily Ashbury" line-- I just had to use those fabrics! Next time-- I will order more charm packs... but you live and learn!

This is my older daughter's
quilt. She loves pink! Recently, we painted her room pink & black, so I made this quilt as a personal touch to her room. I am THRILLED I have finally finished this quilt! Most importantly, she is too!

I have recently taken up finishing 3- YES, THREE - ruffle quilts out of vintage sheets. I will be so relieved when those are done!

They are beautiful quilts, and great pieced backings. The pink and black quilt is very striking.
