2 Quilts binded and pinned. Quilts from QU classes

This is from a class I took with Karen Combs called Treasure Boxes..in 2004..I put the border and sandwich it late last year before hurting myself..It has a 1/4 inch dark red border...very pretty, this is my Chinese Children.. After Fr. Rick queen size quilt that I piece in squares, this is the second one I did and some of the corners do not meet but it is still pretty..Click on it so see a larger photo, the children are so cute!! I will bind this when my eyes aren't so tired like tonight as the other one the bottom. It measures 40 x 28 3/4 inches.
This is from the class called Ripless Paper Piecing with Daphne Grieg..as you tell my sewing got a lot better, I took this class last year..so not to bad getting it done this year..but I did finished a long 70 x 12 inch table runner for Christmas for my antique side board, in red and green prints..very pretty..This what we did in class. I loved the technique a lot..on planning to use in different ways one day. The top has a dark blue binding whereas the side has a light blue..I used fat quarters for the whole quilt top. It measures 28 1/4 x 28 1/4.
Now I am ready for machine quilting after I finished my last autism quilt hopefully tomorrow..
