two finishes!

I pulled out all of my quilt tops that need finished up last week, and got two of them done this weekend! Yeah! First off, is my Happy Houses quilt. These were blocks from a swap. I found this grass looking fabric to sash them with. I used a variegated thread and did a simple hand quilting around each house. This quilt makes me happy! :o) It is on the back of the love seat in the living room so I can admire it all the time... :o) And I had made this Froggy Jar quilt top, meaning for it to be for Jimmy, but changed my mind... :o) I hand quilted it around each jar with the same variegated thread. I put it up for sale on our Country Scrap Quilts site. I love the little froggy fabric... :o) It finished to about 38 x 36.
Here is a close up of one of the blocks.

I sent one quilt top off to be machine quilted. It is one that will be for me and I couldn't decide how to hand-quilt it, so... :o) Now to get to the rest of them... :o)
