Finished Quilts.

More finishes to share with the first lovely QAYG quilt made from blocks donated by several different quilters. 
This lovely scrappy top was donated by Jenny Benton from New Zealand and it's a lovely bright quilt for a child.
Lyz Kershaw (Vic) made the 2 lovely kid's quilts and I love how she used striped fabric for the sashings for a special feature.
Marie Warden from NSW donated the next beautiful pieced top and she had already basted it so it was a quick job to quilt it.
I added borders to the next child's top, using some beautiful fabric donated by Marg Humphrey (Vic) and it was a very good match.
The last top was donated a while ago and it's great to have it finished.

It's been a busy week listing my antique quilts and fabric for sale but it's good to also have some more finishes. 

Hugs, Jan Mac
