Will she make it??

OK, so I have until Friday to finish these four quilts - can I do it??? I have all four quilted, bindings on one side and all I have left to do is sew the ends in, stitch the binding down and label. Even if I don't get it all done, I reckon I will come close!

So, some photos. I ended up quilting each of them a different way. First up is the one with the yellow border.

(apologies for the dodgy photography. For this I chose the beetle fabric for backing. I quilted it in an all over yellow stipple. Quite happy with the result - my stippling gets better every time I do it!

Next is the on point quilt.

This was backed with the shell fabric. I stippled the solid triangles in a matching thread. This is my favourite. I think it's the most effective.

Next the red bordered quilt.

(again, apologies because you can see the edge of the blue one underneath!) Backed with the crab fabric. This was quilted with a beige/ mushroom thread. I took something from each square and quilted it on the whole nine patch. Great idea, didn't work quite as well as I imagined. The close up shows a bottle, see what I mean by it didn't work as well as I thought it would??

Finally the blue bordered quilt.

Backed with the African print. Again, quilted with the beige/ mushroom thread, I quilted a star in each  nine patch.

The sashing on each except the on point has also be quilted using a matching thread. Either swirls or stippling. All of them were stitched in the ditch first and all have the beige/ mushroom stitching on the back.

So, what do you think?? Will I finish by Friday?? Off to sew some ends in! (after I fold the washing!)

Great job, you're on fire!
I really like the on point quilt. The stippling on the solid borders looks fabulous. :-)
