Another Finish

I finished sewing the binding down on this one yesterday.  Now I have one twin quilt to finish before I leave for Australia next week.  I have one side almost done so I'm hopeful...

Twin Quilts

These are the quilts I have made for my twin grandsons.  The middle blocks are the same but the sashing and borders are different.  The bottom one is not quilted yet but hopefully I'll get it done before I leave for Australia. I have 10 days but tomorrow I'm having a family get together so probably  won't get much quilting done.  Can I do it???  I hope so.

I have this one all assembled and the backing is ready.  The back is a black and white paisley design but I had to piece in a row made of the leftovers from the front because it wasn't quite wide enough.  Now it gets into the lineup waiting its turn on the quilting machine.

Half Way There

I now have half the blocks put together and the rest are cut out. This one goes together very quickly because the blocks are so big.  Now I need to find another big piece of backing fabric.

The Next One

Free's quilt needs the binding sewn down. Sky's quilt needs border fabric. Summer's quilt needs backing fabric. My Kaffee Fassett needs a wool batt.  So it seems appropriate to start a new one. I'm sure you quilters out there understand.
These blocks are big, finishing at about 21 inches square. The darker ones are bordered with white which doesn't show up well in the photo but looks good in real life.
I need to cut fabric for six more blocks so I can mix them up a bit  more.  I think this may be a nice one.
