Finished!

I'm so happy...I had such a fabulous vacation...AND...did some sewing while on vacation!  I tried very hard to get several quilts finished before our little trip (see here)...but didn't quite make the progress I was hoping...so Goldie got to go on vacation with us!  I had a blast visiting Texas and my FAB-U-LOUS family...and the look on my niece's face when we talked about finishing her "blanket" was FAN-FLIPPING-TASTIC!  She helped me push the pedal as I finished up the last bit of binding on her quilt!

Without further ado...here is my Prince CHARMing quilt:

and the back:

I used a variegated thread by mettler for the quilting and I LOVED IT!  I will definitely be using this again!  Details: Fabric - Prince Charming by Tula Pink, Aviary 2 by Joel Dewberry and Quilting Cotton in Indigo, piecing and quilting thread from Mettler.


and here is the Pink Princess quilt:

and the back:

I used Always and Forever by Deb Strain for both the top and quilt back and a straight up Mettler white for piecing and quilting (must admit...might have used some Gutterman at one point).  I followed this tutorial for the quilt top.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE both quilts...they make me smile!  And I'm feeling pretty sure that the recipients smiled too!

And for one final awesome pic...my sis' house lends itself so well to photographing quilts...so I got a pic of all three quilts that I managed to get delivered:


yeah...may have to print that pic out and scrapbook it or something as I adore all of them!

Had an Am-AH-zing week hanging out with my family...love them all...they ROCK!  I have one more quilt to finish up for the baby...but she'll forgive me that it wasn't delivered in person!  Love my family!

Later!
