FRIDAY FINISHES

Holy cow, am I late with my Sew 'n Tell today. I actually finished these 2 tops yesterday. I'm late getting the photos posted because I had to go for the dreaded mammogram this morning. After that, I thought I deserved lunch out ... don't you agree?

Before you get too crazy and think I MADE this 2 quilts this week - take a breath. You KNOW that didn't happen. The mostly blue and white, 9-patch and snowball was started last October. Yesterday it got borders. This is going to my sister (Goody 1) for Christmas. I've got plenty of time.
This one is called Buffalo Ridge. It's from the book Nickle Quilts. Dawn, Starlyn and I did it as a block swap, also started back in October. We made 3 of each block and 3 of each flying geese (there were a million of those!) and then swapped. This way, we got a lot more varieties of fabrics and when we met up to swap ... lunch! Not sure where this quilt will end up living but I do have some great ideas for quilting it.
Dawn - if you're reading this ... I know 1/2 my geese are pointing in the wrong direction. Starlyn said I could call it a "design decision." That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

I love both of these gorgeous quilts. The first one I would like to make. Is it a pattern or from a book? I am working on a kaleidescope today for one of my nieces.I will post a pic on the wall before I start sewing.
Happy Quilting!
