Finish It Up Friday...From Tied To Quilted Plus Some

Yay, Finish It Up Friday is back :)
I was asked to do some quilting on a quilt that was simply tied.
A young lady made it for her grandmother and the ties were coming undone.
So I just did some simple quilting.
It is a beautiful quilt, in blue and yellow.  I didn't want to do anything to distract from her work so I did simply diagonal lines and then a bit of echo quilting.
Since it was tied I didn't have to do any basting, yahoo!

Since I finished that and another quilt I was mending for someone else I decided to do some just-because sewing.  I made some blocks that I signed up for in a block of the month.
I love the teapot block!
I also finished up the quilt top I put together awhile back out of someone else's applique blocks.
I didn't really trust their hand applique so I quilted over the leaves instead of around them.
I found a simple pale yellow, gardening fabric for the back.
Not sure where this quilt will go yet.  Maybe I will save it for our service quilt donations.
