Busy, Busy, Busy with Works in Progress and Boy Quilts!

 For some reason I can't shift around the order of the pictures tonight and so we will just skip around to explain and show off all of the the wonderful quilts we are preparing to give away on September 10!
 I am linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced--WIP Wednesday!

Anita sent us this bright boy quilt this week! Thanks Anita!

Emily sent us these two fun boy quilts--I think these will be chosen right away!! Thanks Emily!

 So, now we will get to what I have been working on this week...
I finished off this Cars themed quilt this week.  I made the top a long time ago but I wasn't in love with it and so it ended up on the bottom of one of my piles....but then someone donated a large piece of Cars fabric and I was able to use it as a backing.  The quilting is straightline and a light grey thread--for some reason the camera really picked it up. 

I also finished off this blue scrap quilt--I took all of my blues that were boy friendly (no flowers :)) and cut them in 4, 5 and 6 inch strips of varying widths.  I think I will be able to make 3 tops out of the strips...this is one of them.  
I backed it with a Spiderman print that someone donated.
The red/white checked binding pulls it all together.

Currently, I am quilting a pirate themed quilt for a birthday next month.  I have to finish it off tomorrow so I have time to box it up and get it in the mail before we leave on a 3 week camping adventure!! I hope to check back one more time before we take off!
Hope you all are enjoying the last fleeting moments of your summer!!

Love all the boy quilts, especially the spider man backed one, I can imagine that will be well loved by some little (or not so little) boy. Should we wait to send you more quilts until you are back? Our summer ended this morning when school started, enjoy your trip!
