These are my last blocks.  The first one is Maryland.  I chose the navy fabric because Annapolis is there.  The second one is West Virginia.  Their state insect is the honey bee and their state butterfly is the monarch.
The last one is South Dakota. (sorry it's so blurry) They have Jelly Stone National Park.  Hope you like them.

Finally, I have some blocks to post.  Wonder if you can tell which states they are.

Sorry the pictures aren't so great.

34  Quilt made from Craftster charm pack swap in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: August 23, 2009 04:40:36 PM

I made this quilt for my daughter for her birthday.  Her living room is red with black and white accents.  I got most of the squares from a charm pack swap here on Craftster from MareMare.  I pieced it and quilted it by machine.  Don't look too closely because I am just learning the machine quilting thing.  (I outline stitched it).  My daughter loved it.  Here's the back.

35  My Blue Ribbon Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: August 23, 2009 10:18:11 AM

I posted about this quilt in December when I finished it. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=283186.msg3208178#msg3208178 I got so many wonderful comments, I wanted to share my accomplishment with you all.  This year I decided to enter it in our state fair (KY).  I didn't expect to win anything cause I had entered a quilt a couple of years ago and didn't win.  But I was hoping I would at least get an honorable mention.  Imagine my pride when I found out not only did I win a blue ribbon but I was honored to have my quilt placed in the glass showcase.  Thanks for all your encouragement.

36  Quilt made in two parts of the World! picture added in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: June 13, 2009 06:10:45 PM

This baby quilt was started by a fellow crafster from Australia.  She decided after piecing and quilting one square, she really didn't like it very much and offered it to the first taker.  I am the lucky recipient.  I think this quilt is adorable.  I finished quilting the squares in the same manner she did.  I quilted around the border and added a binding.  I think the finished product turned out great!

Here's a close up.  I meant to post this originally but I was having a problem uploading it.  Prairie points are super simple and I would love to walk you through them if you need it. Cheesy

38  Baby pinwheel quilt with yoyos added in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: May 13, 2009 01:11:39 PM
This is a quilt I made for my latest grandbaby.  It's from a pattern from Eleanor Burns.  I added the yoyos because the white squares where just blank.  I pieced by machine and quilted it by hand.  I'm not brave enough yet to try machine quilting.

Here's a picture of the back.

Here are all my strips.  I'm not sure which are which, but I bet you all know.  I think they are going to work great together!

40  It took me over a year but finally finished - Grandmother's flower garden in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: December 17, 2008 12:35:57 PM
I decided that I always make quilts for everyone else, so I wanted to make one for me.  Problem was, I have a king size bed.  And I chose grandmother's flower garden, so I pieced it by hand.  After I had it all pieced, I decided to quilt it by hand, too.  Once I finished quilting, I needed to make the binding, and since I had done everything else by hand I figured I would put the binding on by hand, too.  So, every single stitch is done by my tired fingers.  I love the results!
