New Year Sew Alongs

Another Heartstring quilt for Wrap-a-Smile. This one has green centers and is boy themed with footballs, baseballs and eyeballs, bats, spiders and lizards. Hope it is not too scary for a little one. My 3 year old grandson loves all these things. 

 I free motion quilted it with more spirals. This completes UFO #50 out of 73.
Next up is a girly themed Heartstring with gray centers and it used up most of my pink and red fabrics. 

 It has kitties, bunnies, hearts and butterflies...
 ...ball and jacks and Strawberry Shortcake. I free motion quilted some four petaled posies.  This completes UFO #49 out of my list of 73.
Quilts of Valor was also hosting a sew a long for today. I completed a Happy Block top and ordered some Cardinal Red Kona for the back and presentation (pillow) case. Then I will request a longarmer.

Your quilts are great! Makes me glad to see a boy theme quilt for donation. So many are girly.
Didn't know there was a QOV sew-along today. Thanks for mentioning.

I especially enjoyed your close up photos of all the wonderful quilting you did on the string quilts, good work! They look terrific!

Your strings are beautiful! I didn't have any time to sew my purple centered blocks yet because we've had company but will be busy later this week.
