Finished July Projects

(Written on July 31st, posted on Aug 3rd! )

I'm on a roll--starting and finishing quilts, blankets, and blocks and more. I finished the two quilts I set out to complete in July, as a member of the groups "One Project a Month Challenge" (OPAM) and the"Charming Girls' Quilt Club" (CGQC). A list of the projects I have completed so far this year is listed in my side bar. (I need to link pictures to each but will have to have my daughter help me do that when she isn't so busy with Gigi (2) and blogging herself!!!)

Both of these quilts are gifts! So.... since they are gifts and I haven't yet given them to their respective new owners, I will just give you a peek at the backs, so as not to spoil the surprise.

For this lap quilt I chose to piece the back with leftover fabric I used to make the quilt top. (Actually a sneak peek at the front of this quilt is in my last post!)
For this baby quilt made for one of my daughter's friend's baby shower, I used one fabric that has a "jungle theme" with green foliage, trees, palms and lush foliage, blue waterfalls, blue-yellow sky, and more. It matches the fabrics I chose for the quilt top.
As if finishing two quilts wasn't enough, I also finished a Pieced Nine Patch Front with Flannel Back Baby Blanket (for another upcoming baby shower!).

I'll add pictures of these finished quilts and blanket in a week or two, after I have given them to my friends, so check back!

Very cute -- and way to get things done. I'll be looking forward to seeing your other projects, too!
