Final Summer Friday!

Where has the summer gone? Next Friday I will be back in school for another fabulous year. I have been home from Ohio for about 10 days and boy have I been busy. I want to get as much done as I can before I am gone all day at school again. I am so backlogged on quilting up the tops I have made so I got busy. this top was half quilted when I left for Ohio so I finished that one. I don't know why but I am drawn to simple square quilts. I think I need to make another one.
I also quilted up the final Monkey top!
 I Quilted up a couple tops from Ohio.
 This one i Made in Ohio but Quilted with a very fine pale pink thread. I love the way it looks on top but the thread kept breaking and I adjusted the tension and it was a real struggle. I also quilted the borders different with different threads. It was an experiement and I will get the feel for doing some new things.

I am almost done with the state flower quilt and I have finished a twin size top as well. They just need the binding. The 5th OH quilt needs borders but I better catch up on the rest.
My Fair and Square State Flower quilt needs about one more yard of binding and that is done!
My hourglass quilt is only in need of binding as well. I am getting those projects knocked off!!

I had a great time in Ohio with my brother, sister and Mom. Happy summer.
