Quilt Top Finishes


Thought I would share these quilt top's as I'll be sending them out to be quilted & I most likely won't see them again until spring. Sorry about my picture quality, I'll do better next time.
The 1st top is # 6 of 8 of my mother's unfinished projects. I'm calling it Plaid Monkey Wrench. It's 77x97". The blocks were a friendship exchange with the Lemhi Piecemakers quilt guild. This one is going to my daughter #2.
Autumn Bears Tracks (my name for it) was an Internet project I started earlier in the spring. Judy Laquidara at Patchwork Times designed it. I believe she is selling the pattern now as "Bears in the Farmhouse". I enlarged it to 90x90 & slightly changed to a pieced border. This one is going in my guest room.

And the 3rd top I'm calling The Rose Sampler, was another of Mom's UFO's. This was a Block of the Month from a quilt shop. Mom started it 10 years ago. It came with all the fabric. It originally had 12 blocks But I redesigned it to better fit a queen bed. It's 97" square. This one is going to daughter #1.
I'm working on the last of Mom's UFO's, quilt # 8, now. I really want all Mom's tops done this year so next year I can work on my own UFO's... I used Electric Quilt to design the layouts on all Moms quilts. I just love that program!
