Quilting away

I have to admit that I've been doing some house cleaning on my computer, so I've had less time working on quilting items. 

But, I did load and quilt - a small four patch flowered quilt, which is the UFO #1 on Liz' challenge for this month.  I'll put the binding on this morning to be sewn down when we go wherever we might go today.  I have a second one of these.  Yes, another double UFO on my list.  :(  But, that is OK. 

I'm debating on what to do with it.  I think I'm adding a thin border and then doing piano keys to use up some of those pesky floral prints in my flowers scrap drawer that is overflowing.
And, you thought I might be exaggerating?  If I can make some piano keys out of this fabric, I could use a little of it up.  We know that scraps breed, so this won't go down much.  LOL 

Another group is doing its sampler in blocks with flower names in them.  I'm hoping to use floral for that too.  so, that will mean I have 2 BOM type quilts going on with floral prints.  I have so many because I don't seem to use them at all.  Now is the year to use my florals.  Anyone want to join me?

There is always Bonnie Hunter's "Floribunda" free pattern on it has tons of florals. I have it all cut out and need to get sewing on it, thanks for the reminder!
