Yay! I made it. Phewsh. Luckily I finished all 3 of my projects I wanted to enter in for the finish-a-long BEFORE we moved. For more info on the Finish-A-Long, check out Leanne's blog here. Today I am finally linking up my finishes! I'm so excited to be back online!
Here is the link to my original post. I had 3 UFO's I wanted to get done. To recap, here they are in their unfinished glory. ;)

I love this fabric and I think it turned out SOOOO perfect with the black stripe-y binding!! That binding makes me swoon!

I love how this turned out. I had some major dilemmas on the quilting. I didn't want to take away from the message I was conveying with the quilt blocks. So I did some simple straight line quilting, then I quilted flowers around the border and on the side of the header block. When I washed it and it came out of the dryer, I heard angels singing. ;) I love it. The Cuzco line was perfect for this quilt too.

This quilt has been sent off and is hopefully on its way to some kiddos in another country. This was definitely a feel good project and I highly recommend doing one if you can. Here is the link for their website. They highly suggested using scraps or leftover fabric. I had these blocks made for something then ran out of fabric and a year or two later, the fabric is obviously gone. So I had to find some coordinating fabrics. I think it turned out OK. I like the soft cotton flannel on the back - I wanted something fun and the apples are so cute. I really had to go out of my comfort zone on this one - the non-matchy matchy-ness gives me a stroke, but I had to follow orders. :) And it is for a good cause so I had to tell myself to get over it. Haha.
Anyway-I am working on unpacking my sewing room. If I had my way, that would have been the first thing to unpack, but I guess these people think the kitchen and food is more of a necessity? Crazy people. ;)
