Flaunt Your Finish - Special Edition

Welcome to our most recent installment of Flaunt Your Finish.  The "Special Edition!"  Why is it special, because we are covering two months of lovely work instead of one.

And, as always, don't forget to link up your project at the end of this post!



First up we have Agnes who feels like the rest of us that this month has just flown by.  She didn't get around to her "a quilt a month" but did manage to complete some smallish projects, partially for the Budapest mug rug swap, and others as friends and family gifts.

 For the feather Agnes borrowed the x- stitch quilting idea from Angelina (who actually made the feather itself).
Cathy made her youngest grandson a baseball themed "tooth fairy" pillow for his birthday.  She says, "I was a little late since he'd already pulled his first tooth.  He loves his money so he may end up toothless!"
Vicky made this cheery quilt for a baby girl arriving at the end of July.
 Robin has been busy whipping up some cute dresses for her daughter before her son is born in July.  The octopus dress is a gift for a friend's one year old daughter, using a pattern by tie dye diva and a fun undersea panel from Northcott fabrics. The rainbow dress is an impulse gift for my daughter; I found some pre-shirred My Little Pony fabric at the big box fabric store, and couldn't resist making a quick sundress out of it. I know I should be working on stuff for the baby (I'm due in July), but it feels good to get these projects out of the way.
Chanda finished this double sided holiday wall hanging featuring Easter on one side and 4th of July on the other.  What a smart idea!


Becky just completed this sweet Elephant quilt for an upcoming baby shower for her grandson, due in August.  The first image really shows off the quilting, while the second shows the vibrancy of color.



Leslie busted out this Box Car Tote for her mom for Mother's Day.
I used extra stiff fusible interfacing so it would stand up on its own. It's the perfect size for my mom to fit her portable cutting mat in and take to quilt class.
Amanda completed teacher appreciation quilts for both of her children's teachers.  The first is the "Neighborhood" pattern from Elizabeth Hartman's book "Modern Patchwork."
I embroidered the student's names onto the quilt above the houses using their actual signatures as templates.  Their handwriting is so sweet at the age of 4/5 it helps make the quilt feel extra personal.
There you have it folks!  Please share what you're working on by linking up with us below.  We love to see your work.
