Moving right along...

on my self-appointed journey, I'm making progress in the "finish it up" department. Mostly I'm guilty of having too many of those "bright idea" flashes in regard to starting quilt tops. This is one of those.
 Found this really cute "picture" fabric at Mill Ends awhile back and although it was printed with a lovely light blue in between the pictures, I had a bright idea! Cut all the pictures OUT and add strips...would be far more interesting, and use up some stash. Am I often guilty of re-inventing the wheel? Oh ya, big time! But it does make a cuter quilt top...*VBS*
 This is the finish of my April Rainbow Scraps Challenge. I added April's color to an already begun project, and now it's a 45" X 63" top, ready for donation.
 
Another older "begun" that I had hoped to finish for Christmas 2010. Didn't happen then, but it's a top(48" X 60")now. I will add 6" borders to this one, and finish it up for a family member, by tying it with a puffy batt.
I thought I had taken a picture of the second Friendship star top that was made from the leftovers of the red star one, but it's not in the camera..uppps, senior moment. Guess I'll save it for tomorrow. My empty container total for last week is 3, hurray for me!!! And they are already filled with new WIP quilt tops, ones that will take awhile to have enough pieces.
Apparently I will never run out of pieces from my scrapbag, LOL.

Oh, clapping here at your many finishes. Wonderful, Finn! I do think you made the cute panel prints even cuter by adding your own scraps.

I hear you -- I'm a sucker for some of those cute designs in boxes, but I always want to make them more interesting by cutting them up and putting them back together with something else. It's an adorable quilt! Love the purple, too.

You've been busy friend. The first quilt, I had those little panels too. I did the same thing...makes it a much more interesting quilt. Hugs

Framing makes the pictures pop, and I love the flimsy. Great Job.
