more quilts :)

Once summer is over and school is back in session, I really look forward to the weekends. I was able to get these three things done-two quilts quilted and a quilt top put together this weekend. Plus, I think I am getting the stomach flu. Bummer. I have not felt well all day, but that hasn't stopped me from doing some quilting. I sure hope I feel better tomorrow so I can go to work. It is more work to take a sick day when you are a teacher.
This first quilt I sewed about 1 3/4 years ago. It was a New Year's Sudoku quilt that was intended as a gift, but the event is looooong over. I really like this quilt and am tempted to keep it. I never keep my quilts, but maybe...
This second quilt was just a bunch of leftover random size strips. Sew them together and you have a quilt top. Backed with flannel and it is a nice sized quilt with some interest. I quilted it with the fun to quilt fern ziggle pattern.
And the quilt top is my all time favorite--Buttonberry Stashbuster. You can find the link to the pattern on the side of my blog. I've probably made over 200 of these quilts since I started quilting about 3 years ago.
