UFO's are flying away....







I've been working on a couple of quilts over the last couple of weeks and finally put the last border on the second one!
The blue and yellow angel quilt I put all together last week and Friday I put on its final borders.I started this quilt quite a few years ago and had all the applique blocks etc all done and ready to put together but that's as far as I got with it.It feels good to finally have them ready to send off to the quilter.
The green and raspberry quilt has been made up for a few years as well,just awaiting the final floral border which I achieved today.I'm loving how it's turned out but boy is it enormous!! it hangs down quite a bit on our bed as you can see from the photo's.I had some extra rectangles cut out and sashing strips so today I also did two cushion tops to go with the quilt and because I still had some rectangles left I've made up a runner top as well today.I'll leave it for another day to finish those three things off ,maybe next friday? Boy I'm bushed! I think tonight I'll be doing some hand sewing in front of the tv tonight.
This year is my year for finishing off UFO's so tick,tick,two more off the list :)

Lovely tops you have there - and they will be ready to use just in time for the cold weather. Those angels are super cute. Enjoy

Lovely quilts there Barb! You have been very busy! Funny how when you have a UFO sitting for SO long, and then when you drag it out to do a little to it, you need to finish it asap.... I have done just that! I will post pics later
