8 quilts for 100 quilts for kids

And the last one is finally finished.

1-3 can be seen here http://suedaurio.blogspot.com/2013/08/a-few-finishes-friday.html

Here's the rest of them - what fun to get them all completed.  They will be dropped off at project linus in McHenry CO this week.   I've added the pantograph names in the captions on the quilts.  I tried to do them all differently.  Lots of much needed practice with pantos :)

100 Quilts for Kids #5 - Loung Lizards - free from Urban Elementz - love these little lizards

100 Quilts for Kids # 7 - free hand bubbles all over

100 Quilts for kids #8 back - IKEA fabric, just love that for the back.
100 quilts for kids #4 pantograph - Contempo by  Hermione Agee - it was a perfect pattern for that border fabric
100 Quilts for Kids #4 back
Now wasn't that a lot of fun using up those scraps of fabric and batting?  I had a goal of 6 quilts, and with a little help from family, 8 were completed.  Awesome!!  Now that the mad rush to finish those before returning to work is over, need to figure out what to do next.  I think I'll just work on Common Bride and finishing up the Swoon quilt.  I really need a new quilt and still having a bit of feather withdrawl, I'm going to feather that swoon quilt within an inch of it's life :)  Oh wait I have to finish it don't I ;)

And one last view of them all together -

Hope every one has a wonderful Labor Day.
