Small quilting group

Today was DH's 62nd birthday.  He gave me a present and said it was OK for me to go to my quilt group.  I had not been quilting since April, so this was a HUGE treat for me!

I had the pleasure of quilting with friends today.  I decided it was a day to sew together string blocks.  I've had these here from heartstrings for quite awhile, so it is more than time.  They qualify for UFOs.

Red blocks

Yellow blocks.  This one needs some borders.  Trying to figure out if I can use it for a boy's quilt or not.  Guess it depends on the border.  :)

Not enough to go with another set, so this will be a tiny baby quilt and I'll add some green borders to it. 

These matched, so I added them all together.  I added a dark green border to this and will show when I get it quilted.

More blue centered blocks.  I think this will need some blue borders.

This was all the leftover blocks from the others I put together today and the purple ones.  there weren't enough to make an all purple quilt.
I love this quilt.  Judy is so precise in her piecing.  I want to make one of these in blue, green and white.

Lana has been working on this Chief quilt for awhile, and it is so worth it!  She is almost done with the top.
