finished quilts

I was able to talk the hubby into holding my quilts for me so I could photograph them. I finished this first quilt earlier this year, but haven't taken a photo of it finished. It was my first quilt-along project, hosted by Amy at a commonplace life.  It's a little on the crazy bright side, but I was afraid to try the technique on any of my prized stash, so this is what I came up with from fabrics I had on hand.

Here's the finished pinata quilt.  It was a hit, Shea loves it.   I love the back.

I finished quilting the scrappy log cabin today, it just needs a binding!

I have been eying up that quilt along of Amy's but circles scare me!

What a busy bee! I love the bright colors. I just managed to convince my husband to help me photograph some quilts today too.
