Sharon, that is really nice.  You used quite a few of those shirts.  If you have enough, maybe a strip 4 to 6 inches wide through the width of the fabric in the middle of the backing?  That way you get a few in there like you want, but don't have to worry about the thinner fabrics. 

Those I-spy quilts turned out so awesome!  They are adorable!

Great finishes!

Sheila, thank you.  The strip in the middle of the back is a great idea!!  I still have shirts and I think I'll do that with them.  I don't think Johanna wants the shirts back.  I have a few blocks made from some of the extra fabrics and I'm going to incorporate them.  Those fabrics had already been stabelized so I used them for blocks.  Working on that today.

Here is number 7--Wildflower Bright.  This is for a friend who drove me up to Corvallis the night my horse had surgery and was not clotting.  He did finally clot and came home several days later, but had complications and I chose to put him down.

Before you get excited...  I ONLY did the four corners.

     

Project #4 - As explained earlier, this is my friend/neighbor's mother's Baltimore Album.  Mom developed Alzheimer's and this is the last quilt she was working on, and the corners were not completed.  Mom had traced the small bows on the only pieces of pink fabric remaining.  I needed to find backing fabric (had to bleach muslin to get it to the right shade) and needle-turn applique the bows, and then sew the corner blocks into the top.  Friend will now find someone to professionally quilt this. I am done with my part of the project. 

On to my "Lace Cabins" project, finally.

Nancy, it's lovely.  I remember  you had that at the Fall TN retreat.  Wonderful job finishing it for your friend.

Finished my butterfly mats.  I actually made 6, but one already went to my daughter.  small project.  These were on my UFO list as well!  Edit - Going back and looking at my list, I don't remember if I put #1 finish on here, Kevin and Katie's quilt.  So, # 1 and #10 down, 10 more to go.  I better get busy.

Got my first 2 borders on my #7 QOV panel today, one narrow white border tp frame the panel and 80 2 X 4 flying geese blocks, with 4" HST Corners.  I'd like to finish the top tonight because I won't have time to work on it the next 2 days because we have to go into Reno for dental appointments tomorrow, and Thursday I have to chauffeur one of my grandsons around because the transmission went out on his car and his motorcycle isn't street legal.  Hopefully, after our trips to DMV tomorrow it will be street legal and he won't be begging me for rides.

I also received my Forest Floor quilt back from the long armer today, so I have to start thinking about binding it.  I'd like to get both of these fininshed this month, but the month is almost over and the Forest Floor is king-sized.  I see some sore fingers and cramping hands in my future.

My April UFO, Memory Quilt, is in the hands of a LAQ friend of mine.  I took it to show and tell last night and showed it to Connie and she wants to quilt it (not for free).  I still have the backing to make and take it to her, but she is going to spread the top out and make a plan for how to quilt it.  There are lots of beautiful white areas that scream for something special in them and I'm not confident enough to try to quilt this large quilt.  I'll post when I have the backing made, but I'm relieved knowing that it will be quilted beautifully.  Downside is that I won't have a finish to my April UFO for awhile.

Seeing April is reaching its end I best put the push on to at least get #2, Four Patch Posy top pieced. I only need to sew a few more seams. I have not touched my alternate project but that's okay unless I decide I want to use parts of it to insert in the backing for the Posies. I will have to do some creative stretching of fabric because the Posy project roughly doubled in size from my original intentions.

A pic of my #7 Quilt of Valor with the first 2 borders on the panel.  Any suggestions for a next border?  I think it will need at least 2 more borders to get it up to size, maybe 3.

Here's a pick of my Forest Floor that I recently received back from the LAQ.  Trying to decide on the binding.  It's king-sized so you're only seeing a small part of it.  The quilting job was superb.  I'll try to get a better pic...maybe spread it out on my bed.
