Skeletons in My Closet

Here's the quilt back for Dia de los Muertos!  I sent the quilt off to the quilter this afternoon. YIPPEE!

A pieced back using leftover blocks and scraps from my stash... I'm very excited to get this done! 

In other news, I am working on completing 5 quilt tops for a friend.  They were made by her mother-in-law years ago and I'm getting them finished up for her.  She requested "simple" backs so here's what I chose, 5 yards of each.  (Notice the brown - ahem) I took 3 of them to the quilter on Monday and have some work to finish up on the last two.  Here's the fabric I purchased for the backs...25 yards in total.

I am really hoping that red qualifies as simple, I did my best!  I'll post pictures of the quilts when I get them back, they are old scrappy quilts, how fun and special to be able to finish up someone else's treasures.

And lastly, Happy 10th Birthday to my little guy Cort!
