Finished Quilts!

After a long to-do list and a huge pile of half-done projects, I FINALLY sat down and finished a whole bunch of them.
This is a quilt I made for our good friends the Talbot's. I LOVE the fabric and the backing. It makes it very romantic.
The front! I've used this pattern lots of times, but it's a favorite and I have never not like how the quilts have turned out!
This is the back of the quilt I finished for this baby. I have to mention, I didn't have enough of one fabric for the backing, hence the stripes, but since we are having a boy, I figure it works!
I free-style machine quilted. I used transparent thread, which I learned I'm a huge fan of!
And the front. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this quilt! So happy how it turned out!
And lastly, I've been working on a quilt since I was pregnant with Sevy, and decided it was high time I finish it. Here is a close-up of one of the front blocks, but I pieced the backing the same way with various white fabrics and love it!
Close-up of a couple of the blocks. I hand-quilted the whole thing, and most the blocks were put together by hand. The lady bug has cotton in the wings to give it a 3d effect.
And the front. Not the greatest picture, but the quilt turned out better than I expected!
Now to decide what to do with it!

As usual, great job! I love the quilt with all the different squares. Your houndstooth one turned out awesome!
