    Four down...two more to go

    Self imposed UFO challenge of finishing half of my UFO's this month is more than half way there, YEAH ME!

    Previously I showed a picture of the "Not a flower in sight, a.k.a A Manly Quilt" and mentioned two others that I finished, but didn't post pictures until now:

    Scrappy Baby Quilt, made from 2" squares, none of the fabrics are repeated more than 4 times in this quilt, so it represents at least 187 different fabrics from my scrap box. I actually made two, the other one has borders and is still in my UFO closet (for now):

    Gem Stones - FMQ sampler. Didn't like the way this top was turning out, so I used it to try my hand at FMQ and to practice different designs. Over all, I'm pleased even though there are a few areas that the FMQ is pretty ugly, but most are not bad. Please forgive the wrinkles, it's already been washed & used before the picture was taken.

    And finally #4 - Sparrow Tracks. Really like this one, and my FMQ is getting better. Took a major slice out of my left thumb the other day, so the hand stitching of the binding isn't as nice as I would have liked, but still happy with the results.

    Nice job on the FMQ. They all look great - I especially like the sparrow tracks.

          I'm still working my way through a large UFO stash of quilt tops. I keep finding new patterns I want to try or I have to finish a certain project which is timed for an event, like a baby shower, etc. But I'm making slow progress!

                      Congratulations! Your quilts are just wonderful!!! I have never completed four quilts in the same year. I would say that in itself is an accomplishment.
