The Beginning of the End

So my last day of school was half a day Friday and my husband asked..."So, what are you going to do today at the beginning of the End of school?" Knowing me, that was a silly question. He of course knew but wanted my jubilant answer, "SEW".  I ran out of batting a couple months ago and have been agonizing about what and where to buy it. I bought my favorite last year for a great price at a small quilt show in late July and did not want to wait that long. Joann had a sale and I had an extra discount so I Jumped in! I bought 2 ROLLS.  One was a less expensive polyester batt for all my donation baby quilts that I am planning and have started, the other is a 50/50 roll that had excellent reviews so I took the plunge. Well, they finally arrived the other day and I have been getting ready. I had plenty of projects half done. The baby quilts all needed the borders put on and so did several big ones. Overall I have 12 quilts ready to sandwich up to quilt and One more to finish putting together. A few are gifts the rest are to give away or maybe as my husband suggests...sell. I'm thinking about it. Here are a few that are finished and ready to quilt up. I have several more ready but I think I will post them when they are done with the quilting.

A second one like the first one my daughter made.
I really wish I could get better pictures but a fancy camera is not in the budget right now. They are much brighter and prettier in person! I am so excited to get a stash of quilts off my to do pile and have them DONE!  Summer can begin with cleaning out the sewing room and getting into some very fun new projects but then of course, it is always fun.

  1. Very pretty and bright and will be loved by those babies!

  2. Looks like you will be having lots of fun. My favorite is the second one. I love how the blue pops with the pink.

  3. You don't need a high resolution camera for taking shots to post on the Web, and I'm sure you can figure out how to change your camera settings to make the pictures a bit brighter. Pretty quults, I love the 6-patch layout.
