I managed to get another of my flimsies turned into a finished quilt this week, in time to enter in the show. "Stars in Grandma's Garden" is another quilt I made using what I've come to call the "Grandma block". It's also called Aunt Vinah's Favorite and several other names. I started quilting it Tuesday afternoon and even though I did some dense quilting on it, I finished by Thursday noon. Then I got it bound that evening. It's big enough that we haven't been able to get a good picture of it held up.
Wish I had a good picture of the great texture on this quilt. It's really cuddly.
The best part of all is that this is my 100th quilt since April 2002 when I began quilting. This is counting those items I consider "quilts"...one that can be covered up with..ranging from baby quilts to king size (not a lot of those..many queens though). You can see all 100 in a slideshow link on my sidebar. Quite a variety! 65 of them have been given as gifts. And 265 other quilted items have been made in that time, including a few really big wallhangings. Who has time to be bored?
While working on the finish of two quilts in the last week, I also continued working on my Dutch Treat blocks in the even and finished row 11.

There are still a lot of "S" blocks!
And one more siggie received this week from Maria in Belgium. She also likes Sunbonnet Sue!
Have a great weekend!
