TWO FINISHES!

This first one is a baby "play" quilt for my great nephew who was born in February.  I had the fabric on hand, so I didn't need to buy anything to get this finished.


Here's a close-up of the truck stop.  Eventually, this baby will be able to drive his toy cars on the quilt.


This next one is a UFO and I started it a few years ago when Barrister's Block had a sew-along.   I had about half of the blocks made, so it wasn't too hard to finish it.  As you can see, this is a raw edge quilt that ravels when washing.  I put it through the wash cycle 2 times,  I've never made one of these quilts before.


Here's a close-up of my quilting and the raw edges.  First, I stitched in the ditch and then added a circle around the bullseyes with a leaf shape in each corner.


I decided to quilt feathers in the borders.  After a while of just feathers, I decided to put a few fancier squiggles and it was pretty easy to do.


Thanks for visiting!

Oh, how my GS's would have loved that play quilt with their Hot Wheels when they were small! It is adorable! The bull's eye quilt is very interesting; I love the raveled edges on the circles. You just keep getting a lot done! ---"Love"

Congrats on two great finishes. I admire those of you who are confidant enough with you machine quilting to do it in contrasting thread. : )

fun finishes. The play mat is so cute. I had a big floor puzzle like this for my kids, they could change the pattern.
your feathers and frills look great.
We use my old bullseye quilt in the basement it is the cuddliest quilt!

Such a fun quilt for your great nephew! Love your Bullseye quilt! I considered joining her sew along but couldn't at the time. I would like to make one someday.

The barrister's blocks colors look like a celebration of Earth Day to me and done just in time for April 22nd! Nice work!
