2 Tops Finished!

This afternoon, I finished my Strip Twist (pattern from Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville) that I've named 'Misbehavin' Blocks' ... the name fits it well! I had a time with my strips but here they are... they aren't nearly perfect, but I had fun doing it and am planning on another one soon... it will be more 'scrappy' style than this one. I bought this jelly roll and just had to use it. I thought it would be interesting to use it in this pattern! Take a look:

It still needs a few more things, but I will get to that one day! Right now... this is the way that it is!

A few days ago, I finished my Three Rail Fence (a pattern from my 'Learn_Quilting' Yahoo! Group) top that I have named 'It Makes Me Smile' because that's what it does everytime I look at it.. then again all quilts do, so go figure! :o) Anyway, I'm trying to decide if I want to add another border to it to make it just a little bigger or if I'm going to leave it as it is. I also need to figure out how I'm going to quilt it. I think that the backing will be a solid black. I love the material... I found it on clearance and it's my colors... any shade of purple is the best!

Anyway... I just thought that I'd post these before I leave for my camping trip in the morning... with any luck, I will come home with some new fabric and an idea for my next project! Happy Sewing!! ~~Jenny
