UFO #40 is a buggy affair...

... along with some Turtles and Paw Prints too. This is a very bright quilt. Not my usual type of colour scheme, but the Mum that it's for is a very 'colourful' person, that is, she loves colour and lots of it.
Made with an Irish Chain Pattern and some interesting fabrics, both the front and the back of the quilt look pretty good. I quilted it with an all over open stipple with a variegated thread as I knew that cross-hatch would look terrible on the back becasue it wouldn't line up with the blocks.
The quilt front (above) and the quilt back (below).Now that's 4 down and 36 to go on my UFO list! LOL!

UFO #35 - I have not been idle.......!

Ta Da.... here is another completed UFO. Yes, a baby quilt, just like the others. My gorgeous little neice now has her quilt. She has only been waiting since her arrival some 6 months ago! I am very happy with the results. It was made from half of a jelly roll, a Kaffe Fasset print and a mint leaf print. I used the "wallpaper stripes" pattern from the book "Quilt Road" by Kaffe Fasset for the centre section of the quilt.
