I finished my Rose Tea-Party Two-by-Two patch quilt yesterday. Sweety-Bird "helped" me with the safety pinning of the quilt sandwich on the weekend. Actually he was being naughty and behaving possessive about the box of safety pins, biting my fingers. Thanks boy...

1. Knitted Patchwork Blanket (started when I was around 14 years old, circa 1992). This one will take a while longer to finish since I need to first KNIT the blocks before I can finish assembling it (*sigh*).

2. Wedding Ring Quilt (started when I was around 16 years old, circa 1994). This one has been in a half finished state for decades... I think the problem lies in that I lost some of the background blocks (*sheepish grin*) and also it looks a bit 80s to me.

4. Curio Hexagon Quilt (started in 2012 - update: finished Sep 2016). This quilt top is 100% finished piecing, but the pieced back panel is slightly too small for the top, and I've run out of Curio fabric, so I ran out of steam for finishing this quilt. I need to find a similar tone fabric to finish off the back and the assemble the quilt. It shouldn't be too hard. I just need to get my butt into gear.

7. Flora Kaleidscope quilt (started by my mom in 2014)
My mom finished piecing this quilt top from Moda Flora FQ bundle, and she even managed to finish safety pinning the quilt sandwich just shortly before she became very ill and passed away in June 2014. I plan to machine quilt it myself; I haven't felt much like working on it because it makes me feel a bit sad.

My completely finished quilts are shown at the end of the right side panel of my blog. Fortunately, there are more slightly more finishes than UFOs! ;)

I finished piecing my two-by-two Rose Tea-Party quilt top this morning. It took longer than I anticipated due to some mistakes and unfortunate unpicking, but I persevered :). The finished quilt top is approximately 53" x 47", so its a small quilt. Now I will make a quilt sandwich and get quilting.
