Quilting Old UFO's

With only a few big UFO's left on my list, I really wanted to get the ones I could finished up. They aren't for anyone in particular, thus the reason they were left to the end. This is Merry Go Round. It was a sample for a class I taught a couple years ago. It's not a hard quilt, but did get boring after a while. I struggle with using scraps, so I think that's why I do not care for it. I'm hopeful it will find a good home at some point.

I just did a meander on it with a cream/tan variegated King Tut. The backing is Central Park with a bit of teal from mom's stash.

I also quilted up the Scrappy Swoon I made at quilt retreat last year. I think it needs something, but I am not sure what. It just is too medium toned for me.
This week the weather finally turned warm, so we've been playing outside with the kids after work every night. Mathew is walking a ton and is such a happy guy.

Mikaela has mastered the tricycle and got a new bike for Easter, but it still learning how to ride it.

Love your HST quilt, glad you got that one finished up. It's way to pretty to be left in a pile. Love it.

I really like the Merry Go Round quilt. I especially like the red diamond that continues around it. It makes it more interesting, I think.

Thanks for linking up with Needle and Thread Thursday!

Hello Moneik,
I love the triangles quilt and the way you have used the colours to form the dark squares at the centre. Great picture of little Mathew looking so happy!
Love from England, Muv
