Quilts being finished.....

There have been so many finished quilts that are quickly spoken for, that I've not always had my camera to take the photos.... However, here are some of the finished ones before they find a home.

This is one made by MaryEllen, called "Angels Among the Stars". It was a pattern that I saw online and sent the photo and what I thought would be good instructions for the group to make (wonky star blocks) and this is what she made with all her scraps! She had it machine-quilted by Laura McCarrick, co-owner of Quilting by the Yard quilt shop. Big AND beautiful!
 This one is finished... It was my experiment with the pattern "Trip around the World" (center design), but I found I didn't like doing it on a large basis, so I kept framing it with florals until it got to a nice lap quilt size. I had intended it to be used as a small tablecloth for my personal use, then decided to donate it to the group. It's called "English Gardens".
 The backing is a lovely rock garden fabric, widened by the green fabric.
 This quilt was made by Enid and brought in to be finished. We added a Fairy land backing and called it "Fairies in the Dessert".  Also a nice lap sized quilt.
 This quilt top was made by Marilyn and was brought in to finish. We used a striped backing and rolled it to the front for the binding. It's called "Pretty Boxes Tied with Riboons".

 This little cutie is called "Stop Driving on the Grass". Just a mishmash of leftover panel strips from another quilt. Great kid quilt.

This was discussed at our last meeting. This quilt was put together, but found to be wavy around the edges. I took it home to fix and after removing the borders, trimming the last row of the quilt's edges, when I went to measure the borders to re-sew I found them to be 3" longer than the quilt!! How they were put on without noticing, it a mystery. But it is now fixed and should be done in the next few months.
