July Charming Girls Quilt Club-DONE

Oh I am so excited...I can hardly sit still here. I finished my July Charming Girls Quilt Club UFO today!!! YIPPEE! I'm really pleased with how it turned out...it's as cute as I thought it would be and it already has a home. It's going to my friend Mary...she just had her 4th grandchild...I made her a quilt with the first one but now I think she needs another...room for all the little ones.

A huge thank you to Kelly for organizing the club...this quilt has been hanging around for a long time...with a little motivation I finished it in a few days. Thank you Kelly! Now to decide what my project will be for August.

Tomorrow I leave for for the beach with Mom for the week. I'm taking my laptop so I'll be checking in...have a great week!

Your generosity of giving away all the quilts you make astounds me! Well done on your finish! Enjoy the beach with mom...I'd say I'm jealous but did so much traveling it feels quite nice to stay home for a bit.

Oh my gosh! Carol this is so cool. I love this quilt. It looks like it was a blast to make, too.

Anne Heidi said...

The quilt is lovely, congratulations on a great finish!
Enjoy the beach- wish I was there....

Karen said...

Boy, you did get motivation to get your quilt top done. You seem to know a lot of people with baby connections. More than me. A quilt is always a special gift when it involves a baby.
I know you will enjoy your beach week. Taking any sewing along or just reading material?

Gretchen said...
