Quilt Shops Done!

I finished up the last of the quilt shops tonight for the Quilter's Garden swap!!  Here is shop #5...


Here are the first four blocks...


I think this one is the one I'm gonna swap...




These blocks have been so much fun to make.  I can hardly wait for next month's block so I can keep playing with this quilt.  :)

There's still time to whip up the first block for our Not So Last Minute Christmas QAL.  I've got a lovely set of batik fat quarters in front of me just waiting to give out to a lucky somebody that links up their first block this weekend!  Come join the fun!

Quilt Shop #4

Last night I finished up the fourth quilt shop of the five I need to make for the Quilter's Garden swap. Isn't she pretty???

 

I truly don't know how I'm going to choose which to swap.  I love each and every one of them.  I have the last one cut out already and should be able to put it together pretty quickly tonight.

Austen Family Album Top Finished!

I finished up the top for my Austen Family Album quilt about a week and a half ago but have had the hardest time getting decent pics!  This one is just so big! So here it is!!!

 
All 104" square of it.  There was no place big enough around my apartments to lay it out so I made a trip to mom's to use her front yard.  :)  It is absolutely gorgeous.  The yellow sets off the 1930's prints so beautifully.This one is going to have to go out to a longarmer.  Those setting blocks just scream for special quilting.  My daughter said daisies in the setting blocks which I think is perfect for the yellow and white.

 
 I love this one so much.  I can hardly wait to get it quilted and bound.  Maybe a new bed to showcase it better, what do you think?  :)

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts.
