A Couple of Finishes

Just a couple of things---two quilts finished. It's always great to see how the quilting adds to a quilt.  The 12 patch quilt top didn't look that great to me, but when I quilted it, it sprang to life somehow.  Pictured are the two:

I don't know if side by side is the best way to show these, but my "quilt hanger" is working out for the moment, so the sofa had to do to display them.

Some other views:
This week I received in the mail some fun labels.  I ordered them from gutentag
These quilts will be given to children locally.

These both look beautiful! I pulled out some fabric to work on 12 patches today and an inspired to contiue after seeing yours completed!

These two are truly lovely. How satisfying is it to have a couple of finishes? I just finished two of my oldest UFOs and am basking in the glow of self-congratulatory satisfaction.

I'm just catching up on blog reading ... you've been busy! Your last two finishes are grand. Those snails are darling on the 12-patch border. The recipients will love these two quilts, for sure.
