More vacation finishes

I think you will be seeing more of these chair shots for awhile. At least until I get bored with them lol. This is Jess' quilt all quilted and with binding attached. I picked up a dark blue sheet at Walmart for $2.50 and used that for the back. Nice bargain! I always check out the sheets when I go to Walmart because they mark their flat sheets down alot. They work nicely for backs, borders, and bindings.

For the quilting I just followed the lines from the blocks and tried to stay out of the big chunks of white since I was using blue thread. Now I just need to make labels for all 6 quilts going up north. Better get to that soon.

Jess' husband Dan is a big golf fanatic so I decided to make him a quick golf quilt. The base of this blanket is one of those really soft fleece blankets. I picked it up at the after Christmas sale last year. I also had a "GOLF" applique that is meant for hats that I ironed on and then stitched down. I made a green or whatever it is called, added a flag and felt ball and called it a day. The picture doesn't do it justice. It actually came out pretty nice.
