Vote for Quiltsy Team Kaleidoscope Challenge - My UFO finishes for May #part 2

WELCOME JUNE - my birthday month! 

Again I should not ask 'where did May go' , because that seems to happen every time I do a new blog post. Even if the intention is there to blog more often, I get busy with other things and it fails every month.

Being an Etsy seller, a lot of time goes into making new items for my shop, different team activities and promoting. 
Recently, the Quiltsy Team on Etsy, decided to have a Kaleidoscope Challenge.  9 talented members participated and now it's time to vote. 
Go to the Quiltsy Team Blog and vote for your favorite. 

**************

I have been busy sewing and most important is I have finished all my UFO's for the 
Quilts Quilts Quilts Team Challenge!  Here are the UFO's I entered for the challenge. 


I have made PSQ's earlier, but this is the very first one where I have used charms from different swaps, hosted by Mary over at The Curious Quilter. If you want to participate, there will be a another swap in September.  






I'm pleased with how it turned out and especially I love the border. I also love the crinkled look after washing. 

Another big UFO I have finished, is my scrappy green log cabin quilt.
It was put on hold because I couldn't decide on how to quilt it. It ended up meandering.










I love log cabin quilts and I'm very pleased with this one. 
I had a lot of green 'old' fabrics in my stash and this is a great way to get use of it. 


Here's my other log cabin UFO! Haven't touched it this year. I think I should give it a go while the fabrics are still available, not sure I have enough.

Love your projects! I have so many projects going on right now that I can't stand it! Desperately trying to finish some of them. I think I overdid it!
