Quilts finished!

I've done it! I finished another 3 quilts off my UFO listing. I'm feeling pretty confident now that I will be able to finish that whole list this time around. Didn't even get to halfway the last time I signed up for the UFO challenge through the guild.

This Pink Flamingo is Joy. She is for a friend who is currently collecting flamingos. My friend doesn't know she's getting this. It's Patch Ability pattern that I saw a few years ago and decided I had to have. It was only recently that I went through my fabric stash and made up the quilt. It's small and will readily hang anywhere there is a space 6-8 inches wide.

This cute little chick sitting among brightly colored eggs is another Patch Ability pattern. However, it is a member of the Monthly Minis series from 2011. Okay, it took me a while to get it should have been finished back the end of March 2011 so it could hang on the table topper for Easter 2011. I figure I finished it early for Easter 2013 since I missed 2012 as well. I like the colorful eggs and it will go up next year.

This lovely bunch of flowers are the Patch Ability Monthly Mini 2011 for May. They say April showers bring May flowers. Well, here's the proof. Since it looks like a watering can instead of a vase, I had to incorporate the word "Water" somehow. What better way then to quilt it in?

I am working on finishing a list of 18 quilts. These three mean I have 10 of those 18 done. I'm rather proud of myself since we are not half way through the year. I have a couple more sandwiched and ready to quilt, but won't get them done in time for the guild meeting this week. However, I do plan to have them done before the end of June and will do my best to finish the others in short order. Who knows, maybe i will get more than that 18 done if I can find the time to do so.

Stay tuned and see what develops!
