A Surprise Finish

Saturday was full of surprises. I didn't think I'd get this quilt finished but it came together quickly at the last. "Double Choc" was my T-block quilt which I put together using quilt-as-you-go method. Each block is joined with a finished half-inch strip front and back. Of course put a quilt down and a cat will always appear.

Here is a close up of the cream fabrics.

"Toffee Bon Bon" is the log cabin quilt I completed in early March and now has a name. It looks like a giant bon bon wrapper to me so I went with that.

Both quilts were gifted last night at my brother's surprise "Big O" birthday party. Above is his and "Double Choc" is for my SIL who also celebrated her "Big O" with a surprise party earlier in the year. I was very happy to deliver his and her's gifts just in time for winter next month.

Now to ponder which UFO will get my attention next. DH thinks I need to make our bed quilt next which will be another quilt-as-you-go log cabin but I only purchased the fabrics for it in January this year so it doesn't qualify as a UFO.

Happy Sewing

It feels good enough to finish one project, but two in one week! Wow! They are both really beautiful and I'm sure made their recipients very happy!
