Finishing some UFO's!

Yeah baby! I finally got all the bindings on the quilts I got quilted at my retreat...5 more off the list! I need a retreat at least once a month I think.

The first one, "Cottontail" was started over 10 years ago with a friend! I know it's so dang complicated that it took me that long to do it. I finished the top at LAST year's retreat and just now quilted it. Is that pathetic or what? But it's done and off the list and ready to hang for Easter. Whew!
#2 "Tower of Spools"--was part of my Quilt 24 Challenge, my design. I was asked to do a lecture/trunk show on that Challenge at a quilt guild, so thought it would be a good idea that they were all done and quilted, considering the challenge was in 2007! LOL
#3- "Positively Pineapple"- done for a class sample a couple of years back. I wanted to do circles on it on Zoe, but never had the nerve to do it. I've messed up on a few quilts by practicing new things and didn't really want to mess up on this. But decided to go ahead and do it and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be to do. The quilting doesn't show well in this picture.
#4- "Spinning Stars" TR-- I showed that to you in the last post--but 'Kathy' is the one who gets credit for quilting it. hahahaha

#5- "Daisy Fields"-- another one of the Quilt 24 Challenge quilts, my design. I used a reproduction prints and wanted to do mostly 'traditional' type quilts, but with a contemporary twist. So I made this asymetrical. I was going to put yellow buttons on the flowers but a friend told me not to because the leaves points turned out well--she said you use buttons to hide flaws! LOL I just thought it would look good to make a flower. I pre-baste my appliques like Ted does. I just don't do well with needleturn. Doing them her way insures perfect points (well most of the time for me).

So, would you put buttons on the center of the flowers or not?

like the daisy fields, I can see the resemblance to an antique quilt style that was so popular in the 30's
you have done a great job with these quilts

Love your quilt........I would only use the buttons if you want the dimentional, did I spell that right?, look. I am sure all your points are perfect!!!!!!!!!

Congrats! All great projects but I LOVE that pineapple quilt.

Personally, I like buttons in the center of flowers. Your point perfection will still show on your leaves and they do look good!

Congrats on your finishes - the quilts are great. Personally, I wouldn't add the buttons, but it is YOUR quilt :)

Love all your projects but especially the spools, since I just made a little spools mini myself!
Love the falling down spools!
