Friday Finishes

I wanted to get three quilts done this week, but I am pleased with 2 finishes.  I made this quilt last year for a dear teacher that was retiring.  It was really a hard quilt to let go of.  I used 2 1/2" square on the first one, and 3 1/2" squares on this larger quilt.  The pattern is from this quilt along.

I created a plus sign for the back since I didn't have enough of any one fabric.  I like how it adds interest.

I also finished this scrappy 4 patch quilt from my UFO Parade.  I am still on the uphill climb with my UFOs, but I am making significant progress.  I am getting closer to the top of the mountain (the half way point).  The quilt is from the book Jelly Roll Quilts.

 Once again, I was just a little short on the backing fabric so I added these little scraps of fabric.  It also prevented me from matching up the butterfly pattern (which I didn't do well on the first try).  It was win, win!!

 I am linking up with Amanda for finish it up Friday.  Stop on over to see what others are working on.

2 great finishes! Both are patterns I'd like to try someday too. I have to decide what colors to use in the first one.
