One Finished Quilt, Three Finished Tops and...

... LOTS of progress.

I gave Nancy the Spools quilt top as her birthday present (after lots of hints on her side) with a promise to have it quilted before the end of February.

I love the scrappy binding although it was a bit of pain as two of my seams ended up in corners.

Nancy and took a class last weekend at our local quilt shop Runs with Scissors. The pattern is Rock Candy by Jaybird Quilts.  It was so quick and easy to make I had time to make a second one.

I also finished up this lap quilt. I love the border fabric with all different greens.
I made progress on my Circa 2016 quilt. I haven't made the center yet as (until today) I could not find a setting fabric I liked.

And my not very Westering Women block (oops, forgot to turn the block).
I haven't made any progress on my medallion quilt. I started making another pieced border and after getting all the piecing done decided I didn't like it. So back to the drawing board on that one.

Oh, my goodness, you have been busy! And I love it every bit. I love Spools quilt. One time I did a quilt with just regular width of fabric cuts for the binding, and three times ended with a seam at the corners!

Love the other blocks and the lap quilt, too.

Lucky friend to get that first quilt! I hate it most when I successfully lay out my binding to miss the seams in the corners, only to have two seams close together with the binding tails meet! Gah.

Lots of fabric yumminess here.

I love that spools quilt! Your friend is really lucky :-) Those Rock Candy blocks are great! Beautiful!! I feel your pain with your medallion quilt, been there. Good for you for realizing you don't like it and being willing to make a change. It's hard for me to do that. I just keep on going or leave it sitting somewhere unfinished.....
