Actual finishes??? Wow!

I have been productive again! woo hoo. It feels so good to be productive again!

Saturday I finished the Tshirt quilt that i have been worked on. Ok, the picture quality is bad because i finished it up at 2 am, had to wash it and ralph delivered it to his customer at 5:30 am. So i had to take the pictures on the floor with bad lighting!

I have two more to do for this customer. It took a while to figure out the layout because of the different sizes, but I was pleased with how it turned out and how it quilted. She loved it and cant wait to see the other two!

I sold the last vintage sheet quilt in my store the other day. They sell well so I needed at least one to put in there, sunday morning I sat down with my precut 4 1/2" scraps and put this together. I am pleased with how it turned out and I called it "Baby Powder" because it was so fresh and pretty you can almost smell the baby wrapped in it!

Being that I was on a roll, monday morning I sat down and honest to goodness I peiced it and quilted it before most of the residents in our house was even awake! The points on the star are the left overs of the flying geese on the queen quilt in my last post. The boxes of the stars are 1 1/2 inch precut scraps and the white is the scraps from the white vintage sheets I use in most of my quilts.

Ok, see the points on the stars, they are HORRIBLE! I figured out my 1/4 in seam is way off. I keep a peice of painters tape on my machine and my grandson loves to play with it, obviously he has moved it! So I am trying to figure out a better method that isn't as fun to a 2 yr old! lol

 I also whipped up some more vintage sheet cocktail napkins for the store. They have sold well in the past. I have given these to all my little grand daughters for their tea parties too. They love them!

I am linking up to Show and Tell Tuesday, Free Motion by the River, and Sew Cute Tuesday at Better off Thread. There are some creative links there so be sure to check them out!
