Quilt tops

Blocks from the Stack and Whack layed out. They are now all sewn together.

Hungry Caterpillar all finished!

I have finished 2 quilt tops! The Hungry Caterpillar is all done and ready for quilting. The stack and whack I made for my mom needs borders, but she loved her Mother's Day present. Steve wasn't very happy about cutting and ironing while sewed for about 5 hours on Sunday to frantically finish in time for our Mother's Day dinner, but we got all the blocks sewn together and it turned out so much better than I was expecting! Not perfect, but it is my first big (queen) quilt that I have successfully completed. Many started, but not many finished ;)

Found some beautiful material at a little shop in Pismo Beach called Quilting Cousins. Can't wait to go back and get more :-D Once I finish Keira's Garden quilt I will start on a new project. I thought Steve would be much more accepting of me buying material if I finished a few tops. Not to mention buying the quilting machine I want. How can I justify buying the machine when I have no tops to quilt... not the case any more!!!
