Colorful Finishes

The pile of quilts is growing as I prepare to give a speech to a local women's group about quilting for charity.  I need lots of show and tell to make the speech more interesting and to make me more comfortable!
This first one is a rarity for me--made on the sewing machine! I got a charm pack and roll of strips from Connecting Threads in their Quilter's Candy prints. I removed a few because I didn't like brown and black with this collection and then made this quilt with the remainders. It took almost every square inch of the fabric.

This is one of my favorites of all time!  The fish patterns are from Sindy Rodenmayer at Fat Cat Patterns.  The other animal shapes are taken from the border fabric, which is exceptionally cute and of course, completely unavailable now!
I call this one "Mitten Match".  It has 20 matching pairs.  One pair is actually two left mittens.  I plan to put a label on the back to tell the recipient that it is a matching game.
