Four finishes

Almost four!  I finished the twin quilts.  They are bound and ready for my daughter in law.  I am almost finished with this one.

I posted a picture of this one some time ago.  I was not happy with it at all.  I visited with my aunt a couple of weeks ago and she suggested adding the yellow dots in between the squares in a wonky way.  I used the same yellow for the border and then bound it with a bright red!  I love the way it looks.

The best is the back!  This cute cute circus print.  I added a square of the coordinating print on the front.  This almost makes two quilts in one. 

And this is my challenge piece.  Cottonfields, our local quilt shop sponsored this challenge.  You had to buy two pieces of ugly fabric and then create something that involved birds.  I used Freddy Moran's chickens for inspiration.  My piece is called Chicken House.  The quilts are due August 1 so I am a bit early so don't show it to anyone!!


I hope everyone is having a great summer.  Try and stay cool.  Can you believe this heat?  Here in NC we had 5,  yes 5 days of 3 digit temps last week.

What cute quilts. but I don't get it--the quilt shop wanted you to buy ugly fabric? they admitted that they sell ugly fabric? It's funny. Love those chickens
