YAY! Two More Quilt Tops Completed! :o)

I'm like Tigger bouncing around my room, so happy to be able to say I've completed two more quilt tops.  Yeah, go ahead and burst my bubble...they still need to be sent out for quilting...but progress is progress...right?  Right!  LOL!

Here's my "Whacked Out Stars" quilt top.  LOVE how it turned out.  Have to say that sewing that triangle border was challenging me a tad at first, but once I got it down, it was a breeze.  Only took me three tries, so not too bad.  They're not regular 45 degree "geese", I think they are something like 60 degrees.  But now I can say "been there, done that."  :o)

And, of course, I have to show off how awesome the points came out!  Wheeeee!!!

There are 52 different fabrics in this top.  All the stars are different, as are all of the background fabrics.  Plus the outer border and the backing.  I'm using this fabric to back it and I'll use the red from the outer border to bind it.  It will measure 65" square finished.

And here's my "JuJu Beads" quilt top.  Loving this one too.  So fun and bright.  I used Kate Spain's "Terrain" line.  ADORE it!  I think I have enough left to make another quilt.  But that's for another day.  LOL!

I'm using this beautiful floral for the back and binding it with this fuschia tone-on-tone.  I think it will be stunning once quilted.  It will measure 48" square finished.

To progress,
