Time for a holiday!!!!

Well, it isn't really, I have really only started to get back into my routines after my holiday! I have even managed to finish off some UFOs!! Here's couple of them, the bright quilt was just a fun one to make, mainly because I wanted to try the 10min blocks (by Suzanne O'Neil) again and then it just grew and grew. There's a few mistakes but I am trying to be less obsessive over exact points etc, especially when I will be keeping it for the house. The second in an applique center with needle point, which I am not very good at but can see a slow improvement! I have also been practicing on my new/secondhand Janome 1600P which is on my New Generation Quilt Frame, I am finding the quilting a lot easier than on my old Happy Jack, as I can stand closer to the machine head to see what I am doing. No, its not my eyesight getting older!!! I am sure it's not, lol!
Cheers till next time

I love the bright colors in your first quilt! It really feels good to get UFOs done, doesn't it?

Thanks Liz and Judy, Yep, that quilt is just a trifle bright, lol!
Still not sure what I will do with the applique center, will need a lot of thought I guess.

me again - love that top quilt and the baltimore block is great. I have a Baltimore quilt on my UFO list - started in 1990 - almost an heirloom!
