Show and Tell - Part 1

Hi all - I haven't been in the sewing room much the past few days so I don't have anything new to show you right now.  I thought I would share with you a few photos of finished quilts instead.  Enjoy!

From one of my first quilts -

To one of my latest quilts - completed this spring.  I still haven't named it, can't seem to find anything suitable.  I had a package of 10- inch squares that I put into groups of 5, then stacked them and started cutting.

Here's a closer look at some of the different fabric in the quilt.  There's 30 different fabrics in the main vertical strips and 8 different purple fabrics in the smaller vertical strips.
Here's a photo of the backing fabric.

My darling daughter, Victoria, holding up a table runner I made from leftover squares from a quilt a made for my mother.
This is from a kit I bought from The Quilt Patch, it's called Hopscotch.  The fabric is from Moda's line called Aviary, which I love - I'm a sucker for florals. :-) The backing fabric is a soft pink Minkee - perfect to snuggle up in.

Here's a closeup of the quilting, I had it longarmed at My Sewing Room, and we decided on a lovely flower and butterfly pattern.
Here's a shot of the back, can you see the butterflies and flowers?
