"...in a time lacking in truth and uncertainty and filled with anquish and despair, no woman should be shamefaced in attemping to give back to the world, through her work, a portion of its lost heart." Louise Bogan, American Poet 1897-1970

Two Quilts Finished!

     My last post was ten days ago and I had some quilts to finish. I have finished two!
     Kristi's quilt called Tipsy Log Cabin (see original post and my last comment for credits) here:  http://quiltingyaiyai.blogspot.com/2011/04/finish-up-friday.html#comments.

                                                                    Tipsy Log Cabin

                              There are two sets of Prairie Points. This also shows the border quilting.

                      Quilting shown from back. Each block has a rose quilted in the center.



     This is the Quilt of Valor soldier quilt that is finished. I found out a local man is going to Afganistan in December and he will be given my quilt before he leaves. Gives me goose bumps. My husband told me they grew up together and he knows him well. More goose bumps. I am so honored.
     Two down, two to go! YAY me! Who am I kidding. There are two left that were mentioned in my last post, but there are far more than that on my WIP list.  *grins*
     Wishing you blessings and finished projects of your own, Deborah
