Final summer finish

The kids come to school tomorrow morning and I have been back to school for over a week now. I have continued to sew but not quite as much as I get ready for another school year. I did manage to finish a top. I bought the fabric in Ohio on sale and needed something simple to work on after my trainings. I am pleased with it and think it will be even softer and more fun after it is quilted but my stack "to quilt" is getting taller. I also made some fun birthday bloomers for the grand daughters first birthday coming up and appliqued a cute shirt for her. Those pictures will come later as I forgot to take them and my daughter took them home. For now, my newest .
The colors are hard to see in the picture but it's very sweet.

Final Summer Friday!

Where has the summer gone? Next Friday I will be back in school for another fabulous year. I have been home from Ohio for about 10 days and boy have I been busy. I want to get as much done as I can before I am gone all day at school again. I am so backlogged on quilting up the tops I have made so I got busy. this top was half quilted when I left for Ohio so I finished that one. I don't know why but I am drawn to simple square quilts. I think I need to make another one.
I also quilted up the final Monkey top!
 I Quilted up a couple tops from Ohio.
 This one i Made in Ohio but Quilted with a very fine pale pink thread. I love the way it looks on top but the thread kept breaking and I adjusted the tension and it was a real struggle. I also quilted the borders different with different threads. It was an experiement and I will get the feel for doing some new things.

I am almost done with the state flower quilt and I have finished a twin size top as well. They just need the binding. The 5th OH quilt needs borders but I better catch up on the rest.
My Fair and Square State Flower quilt needs about one more yard of binding and that is done!
My hourglass quilt is only in need of binding as well. I am getting those projects knocked off!!

I had a great time in Ohio with my brother, sister and Mom. Happy summer.
