I belong to a UFO Group and we usually sew together one day a month and then on special days. Like today being Presidents Day it was an extra day to work on UFO's. I worked on this yellow quilt top for a friend that's going to be a grandmother for the first time in July. This is one I wasn't real sure of, but so far it's coming along good. I need to get the binding and backing for it to finish it, so hope to do that by the time we have our next sewing day. I love yellow though, it's so clean and fresh looking:) BTW it's going to be a girl:)

Before my oldest grandson Matthew was born, I started making him a primary color quilt, and then did the same before my granddaughter Samantha was born. I had pieces left over so I went ahead and put them together to save for another day. Well, between then (Matthew is going to be 16 next month! lol) and now I had misplaced it. While cleaning out my son's room today I came across it. It's such a delight too. My oldest friend of 54 years is going to become a new Grandmother for the first time this summer! I'm so excited you'd think it was mine! lol Anyway, it just really seems to fit that this quilt will go to her for her new Granddaughter. (When it's finished, this is only the top of the quilt:)

Ok, the floral print I fell in love with a long time ago. Then about a month ago my sister gave me a yard of batik that had exactly the right colors to go with this one. Only I can't get anymore of it. Soooooo I'm looking for some mottled solids that will go with the floral print. What do you think of these two? If I went with just one, which would go best? I can use any help you have to offer. I'm really on the fence on this one. Thanks in advance.
