Weekend finishes

I had a little free time this weekend to finish off some quilts. These were all quilted. They just needed their bindings stitched down.

This is the Downy quilt all finished. I plan on adding another quilt to the box before I ship it out.

The next three quilts all have the same backing. I love this fabric. I think it is the shade of blue that I like the most. They also have the same binding fabrics.




I figured some pirate ships would like great with the blue water and islands of the backing fabric.

I've got the whole world on my  I like all the basic colors on this fabric. This one I quilted by following the longitude and latitude lines that are on the fabric.

Born in the U.S.A.

When I saw these two fabrics, I knew they needed to be turned into quilts. My guys would have loved to lay on a quilt that has all the states/countries on it. I can just picture them taking their matchbox cars and driving them all over the world.

Whole cloth quilts make fast quilts :)
