Quilt Top Finishes!

Yes, I am one of those slow bloggers with lots of excuses. The main one is intimidation. I spend time everyday savoring all of the wonderful blogs out there about parenting, quilting, etc and am amazed at people's creativity and prolific productivity! I can't keep that pace so I feel like I rarely have new things to share.

In November and December I added a part-time retail job to my full-time mom-of-three job so the quilting projects went on major hold. Now that I'm done with the job, my machine is seeing action again. I've finished two quilt tops and several blocks for others.

First of all, here is a quilt I am making for MYSELF:

A closer look at a block:

This is a basic log-cabin using Moda Glace' by Three Sisters. I LOVE this fabric. The colors are lovely but the feel or "hand" is scrumptious!

Next we have a quilt kit I ordered after seeing in the Summer 2009 "Quilts and More" magazine:

You'll have to excuse the bad pics and wrinkles! Here is a close-up:

Finally, some pinwheel blocks because I LOVE the Moda Rouenneries line by French General:

So there you have some updates to my progress finally. I have to admit, I spend way more time admiring quilt bloggers' projects than working on my own but it provides wonderful inspiration as well as delicious eye candy!
