Quilt Tops

revisited my 2012 goals and found out I was a little short on the Quilt Top Making side.... so I got busy!!!  

Remember the signature blocks I had out at the Larimer County fair? There were enough to completely make one top.... so here it is..


Not only did we have string blocks out, we had some stars too... so I combined them all!


And here is the second top done this week. ( I get extra points for 2 right?)


The instructions for this block are pretty easy, and the top goes together rather fast!  It is a little crazy - but should catch someones eye!!

So now I have 3 more tops to make - wish me luck, I am not sure I have any started that I can work on!!!  Maybe have to start a new one ;-)

I like the strings and stars together.

Gee, I never needed a goal to make more tops. LOL Your tops are fabulous, the first one is really special!

Yup...you get extra points for finishing two tops... AND extra chocolate too!

:)

Congrats on two great finishes!

Not only do you get 327 extra points, but a chance to win the pony AND enter the pie eating contest. Great job!

Amazing Amazing Amazing Alycia! I've been climbing up a hump these past few days and I hope I'm nearing the top so that I can get going on a few finishes: SOON!

You not only get extra points for 2, you get an A++ from this teacher! VERY hard to come by, might I add!

I want Gypsy Quilter to award all prizes! My family gives me all kinds of points, but I never get to spend them. Gypsy gives SO MUCH more. To be honest, I am certain you have earned much more than even her prizes, but being part of delivering the quilts is pretty much one of the coolest of rewards, right. So impressive!

Oooh, you sure combined the strings and stars in a really neat way! They go so well together. The second quilt is making me check my strap stash! Thanks again for sharing.

Love the stars and strings quilt. It's one of those you look at and each time you see something new. Congrats on finishing up 2 tops.
