Two New Quilt Tops

I made two new tops in the last couple weeks. One inspired from a Thimble berries book, and one from a Heartstringer's blog pages.

The Thimbleberries pattern is just for a small table topper, but I decided to make several of the blocks and make a large lap size or sofa throw. Here's the book page:

Here's the quilt in progress:

In this pix I had not added the border, and I was debating on what I wanted. A ribbon border would have been great, but I ran out of background fabric. So I decided to do a plain old fabric strip one. I had two choices of combinations:
I chose the one with the large blue and burgandy paisleys and the burgandy dots. When it is quilted I will show the finished product.

I also made a Strip Twist from a pattern designed by a fellow Heartstringer. This will go to Hospice House. I have 3-4 quilts for them, so I need to get them over there!
And here is the backing fabric-isn't it yummy!? I got hungry for strawberries after working with this fabric, and Shara bought some today! Gives one hope that this winter will eventually end!!!
