Many Finishes

Well, this has been a week of machine quilting. I have been working like crazy and gotten 7 quilted. One I gave away and didn't even get a picture. I finished up the ocean theme quilt for my team teacher and put waves and wavy lines on it to look like the ocean. I really like how it turned out. I went on to make her a few burp cloths to match. I also found some flannel with a whale on it and made a blanket and another pair of burp cloths. I am pleased with how they turned out.

I quilted up this purple one that has been in my stash for a long time with no borders. I am happy it is off the pile.

My sewing buddies decided to each make  a star block all incorporating some of the same gray fabric in each one. then, we would submit them all together for the Houston quilt festival. The astronaut that did a star block in space was asking for other star blocks. If yours is chosen they will all be put together with hers. so, here is what I cam up with. not very exciting but nice all the same. It goes well with the others in the stack. All the blocks used the gray background in the block somehow. Now, I wish I had used the gray on the star part but Oh well.
I have sandwiched together another 3 quilts, cut out a dress to run through the pleater to smock and cut out and laid out another lap size quilt of the leftover ocean scraps. I have gotten lots done before I head to ohio to see family this week. I finished another quilt and burp cloth for my nephew in Ohio Who is having a boy in July.
Quilted up!

Let's keep the stack going. I have plenty more! Oh my this is so much fun.
