Am I too late for a link up?

Rhonda ... Am I too late to link these two quilts up for the Finish a long?

Probably but hell, I'll link them up anyway.

A long time ago...I bought some fabric and made a quilt for a friend for her new baby boy.  The quilt front was quick to make and because in the beginning I was never sure on how much fabric I needed to buy, I had a good bit of fabric left over. 
The next two quilts that I made in the 'It's a Hoot' fabric I thought that I would do the same but make a few little log cabin blocks for the backs.

Nothing too exciting I know but my challenge this quarter was to FMQ on each quilt. 
Now you have to understand that FMQ just scares me and I have put this task off for the past two months.  Really I shouldn't have worried and wow how quick is to use FM than my usual straight stitching.......this could become a regular thing.

So here are my unfinished products and you can see here where I did discuss the what I wanted to achieve this quarter and here on the original blog about my blocks that were made for the backs of the two quilts.

And below are my two quilts. 

Quilt 1 has AB polka dots in green for the binding and a bit of Kona Grass Green in the quilt.

Quilt 2 has AB Blue polka dots for the binding and Kona blue on the back

Quilt No. 2 I think is heading to Oz to my new nephew.....
Quilt 1....mmmm I am thinking of putting it up as my first item on my Etsy store...
will I, won't I, will I......



  1. Both quilts are gorgeous! Go on - get going on etsy!

  2. awesome little quilts. Go for it!

  3. They're adorable! Congratulations on a job well done on your first FMQ!

  4. FMQ scares me too, not so much because I don't think I can but because it is so hard on the neck and the shoulders! And that was on a 12" practice piece!

  5. They are both lovely. Go for it and give etsy a whirl! Di x

  6. Definitely go for the Etsy option, the quilt is lovely and nothing ventured, nothing gained!

  7. Do it!!
    You can always buy it yourself!

  8. Gorgeous quilts! Good idea to sell one of them =D
