Customer quilts

My goal for this month was to finish at least 10 customer quilts.  I finished the one on the top on April 3rd.  Then finished a Christmas quilt with red birds.

I'm working on this one right now.  I love the soft pastel colors.  It is an Eleanor Burns pattern called Summer Porch and is in her book "Through The Seasons".  I finished 2 others that I didn't get pictures of and so I am now halfway to this months goal.  For some reason I got 8 customer quilts in just a few days and it really put me behind schedule.  Although we had snow 3 days of this week, I know the warm weather has to arrive soon and I will need to work outdoors.  I would be happy to just stay in and quilt though.  I think I figured out what I'm going to do with my birds UFO quilt, but I just need to put the 4 corner blocks together before I can be sure.  I don't know why I'm having such a hard time with it, but that will make it even more of a celebration when I finally finish!  I have linked up to Link a Finish Friday.   You should visit Richard and Tanya Quilts to see some other finishes.


  1. I love that pretty pastel quilt at the end of the post!

  2. Really like the Christmas Birds Quilts. I'm putting binding on the baby quilt and then it and another small quilt will be sent to Judy over at Patchwork Times for the Waco Texas victims.

  3. 8 quilts at the last few days wow! Best of luck to you on getting them all finished! You do wonderful work!
