High Five Quilt

This is my latest quilt, High Five, from the book Sunday Morning Quilts by Amanda Jean Nyberg and Cheryl Arkison.  I love this book and plan to make several quilts from it.  The blocks are 4 1/2" square and the quilt is 60" x 90".  It is machine pieced and hand quilted.  I'm still working on using up fabric scraps and have yet another scrap quilt top (although not a pattern from this book) in the frame.

Finished Quilt

I've been working on reducing my fabric scraps.  This quilt was finished and bound yesterday and is now on my bed.  It's 64" x 80".  I have another quilt in the frame now that I hope to finish by the end of next month, another scrap quilt started, and plans to make two smaller quilts.  All of these are machine pieced, one with a small amount of applique.  I want to get back to appliqueing blocks for my Homecoming quilt as well.  Too many quilts!  Not enough time!
