Newest Finishes

It's always good to finish things.  I love to start projects, especially with applique blocks.  I'll whip up the blocks and stick them in a drawer--or I'll make a top and then hang it in my UFO closet.  (There are way too many in there.)  However, in the past week or so, I've finished three things!  
 First is this little quilt (about 21 x 29) that I am donating at the hospital where I volunteer.  They're having a raffle to raise money for benevolence projects.  I hope it stimulates some ticket sales.

Next is this child's quilt that went to Project Linus.  The animal shapes are from a book called Polka-Dot Quilts.

This last quilt also went to Project Linus.  It's special because I got the border and backing fabrics on trips to Dallas to visit friends from my internet quilting forum.

Yet Another Chance to Vote!

I've entered the Weekly Themed Quilt Contest on Quilting Gallery.  Here's the link if you'd like to view the teddy bear quilts:
As always, if you feel I deserve your vote, I'd appreciate it.  Anything I win is funneled back into my charity quilting.

The bear pattern was designed by Sindy Rodenmayer at
