Whoop! Whoop! 8.4.2017

I have a few finishes to share today.

First up is the Green/Blue quilt.

Second up is the Hanging Diamonds Quilt.

Both of them are beautiful - and yes.... always by machine - If I had to do them by hand I would never finish one quilt!! ;-)

These are going to make a couple of kids very happy. :) I normally finish binding by hand, also, so it's like a party with the few that I do finish up completely by machine!

Congrats on two finishes in one week! I'm sure both quilts will be well loved!
