here are three quilt tops I have been trying to finish up..
the tops are now done.. Just need to start quilting them. but not going to do that for a few days.

I worked on this one all night to have it finished before the sun went down.. Just made it too.. ( I had the blocks finished as of Dec 2005 but the sashing and the boarders is what I did today.
This is one I had 4 rows done before this year, and what I was reporting on the challange,
This quilt was a 2005 Bom quilt.. which was also finsihed up this month, most of the blocks where finished before Dec, and in Jan all I had to do was sew the blocks together, and the boarder.

Now I have to get busy quilting all the monsters..
but I am going to take a a much needed rest ( at least for the rest of the night)

You've really done beautiful work; and just think, you have worked on them over the same period. Good work.

Those are beautiful! I wish I could get into my first quilting project that is sitting there, but I have to finish my UFO's first!

Thank you all for your kind words.

I am also the same way, I had to put the quilt tops on the back to finish up all the projects I had going around Chrstimas time, just getting quilt tops finished has made my stress level go way down.

I can't stand having any UFOs, so I have to get them quilted as fast as I can before I will allow myself to start anything else..

and I am waiting for joann's patterns to go on sale again!!

I just love to sew!!!

Beautiful work and I'm sure you, like most of, love that feeling of accomplishment! Good for you! The middle one is my favorite altho I like them all. My project has been cleaning up my sewing room so I can find my sewing machines-have found 2 so far, one to go! then I'm going to do a major cut day and get a bunch of stuff cut out, stacked up and ready to go-I hate cutting things out, I'd much rather be sewing.

again, great work! Thanks for sharing

I also do not like cutting, even if it goes faster with the rotery cutter. :bg:

Beautiful work Christina! My favorite, the last one. I'm drawn to two color quilts it seems. They are all beautiful. Seems I used all my energy at the holidays, can't seem to get going again although I've started cutting a rag quilt and have several floating around in my mind to do. :-) Donna
