Two finishes and two WIP's

I actually have a couple finishes to show you today.  They will be donations to our local neonatal soon.  The purple/green one was pieced earlier this year in July using this pattern during the quilt along.  The blue one is Leslie from the book 3 Times the Charm. Both fun, quick little 36" quilts to whip up. Don't cha just love the striped bindings!

 I made good progress on my Disappearing hourglass top with a total of 10 blocks done now. Hope to work on them a bit more today. And can you see the pile of quilts in the bottom right of the photo-there are 3 more neonatal quilts that need binding and one that needs another border before quilting it up.

I just couldn't help myself I had to start yet another project. I saw a neat string quilt and thought, 'Wow I have lots of strings in bright colors'-you see it was a very gloomy day here in Minnesota. One of those days where they sky is just a gray color-looking like it could snow. Well it did, a few flakes and I do mean a very few! Working with the bright fabrics sure helped get through the day.  I will add the star shapes in white. I have several more to go, so this will also be an ongoing project :-)

I also had time to play with my beads and made myself two bracelets. 
 This one is now finished ;-)

First thing today I need to quilt a customer wall hanging, then I get to play!
Linking up with Fabric Frenzy Friday, and Can I get a Whoop Whoop! Links are listed on my left side bar.

Have a great weekend everone!


  1. Very nice projects! I have also made some Disapp. hourglass blocks, but only for a runner.

  2. Your neonatal quilts are sure to be loved, and YES to striped binding!! Your disappearing hourglass blocks are looking fab. How are you finding them to make? Fiddly? Yours are looking perfect! OOHHHH! Your bracelets are beautiful! Do your talents ever end?? :)

  3. Great finishes Vicki! Isn't it fun to have other hobbies to "play" with! had to show me the colorful strings......I just might have to pull mine out!

  4. Such cute finishes. I especially love the hourglass blocks in the little quilt which form arrows.
