More UFO'S

I finished a couple of more UFO'S this week.  This first one called Daisy Chain is from Australian Patchwork & Quilting Magazine 2004.  

It only needed some quilting and binding  and I don't know why I put it off for so long.
  I made this quilt when I first started quilting and didn't know much about quit fabric.  All the fabrics  were purchased at  (cover your eyes if you are a fabric snob)  
Jo-Ann's.  
This little alphabet quilt was started when I was at the AccuQuilt retreat in June 2011.  I used their dies to cut out the alphabet since I don't have those.   Now  that it's washed I think the squares could have used a little quilting.
Both quilts were bound using the machine binding technique from the previous post.
It sure is fast.
Happy stitching,
Nancy

Wow, you are rolling right along with your UFOs! I think your blue and yellow quilt is beautiful, no matter where the fabric was from! Congrats on some more finishes!

I like the quilt with the applique block in the center. Nicely done.

What's wrong with Jo-Ann's fabrics store? Listen, if you haven't noticed we are in a world economic crisis and cheap fabric is just as good.
