So here are the quilts that I have completed in the last several weeks.
1. Triangle Quilt Along . . . is finally finished. I did not get it finished by the original deadline but sometimes there are more important things than finishing with everyone else. I am so pleased with the way it turned out - I love the teal and red together! Here are a few pictures that I took today when I got home from school.

2. Baby Quilt for a cousin.
Okay, I must confess . . . this is the reason that I did not finish the triangle quilt when it was scheduled. There was a baby shower for my husband's second cousin and when I saw this fabric bundle at my local quilt shop, I just knew I needed to make her a quilt with it. It was a great match for the things that she registered for and I fell in love with the fabric. I did order the elephant fabric to go with the bundle and had to wait for before I could start the quilt. It was a very simple quilt and did not take me very long to do. I was more than happy with the way it finished and she loved it too. Here is Jill's gray and yellow baby quilt (with elephants!).

attempt at stippling the whole quilt.

3. April's Block of the Month from Quilt Doodle Designs was finished on time by the end of April. I make it a priority to do my block each month so I don't fall behind. The blocks are not usually hard (well, two and a half inch squares do challenge me but I'm getting better) so it's not usually hard to get each one finished in it's month.
For April we did a row of stars.
