Another Finished Top to Add to the Stack

I'm trying very hard to motivate myself to finish projects that I have started over the years.  I spent about an hour and a half yesterday night finishing this quilt top.  This top was started about 3 years ago and I got as far as sewing the rows together until I realized I was short one block!  I couldn't understand how I was short just one block.  I was sure I had made enough and my brain was too tired to go back and make the one extra block that I needed to make to finish!  Then I just didn't get to it.  I lost interest in the fabrics.  They were purchased when I was last in the States visiting home and family, which was four years ago now.  I also made this quilt here out of the same fabrics...

Then I decided to use as much of the 30's fabrics as I could so I started making the yellow one.  I love the design of the quilt and hope to make one like it with modern fabrics someday.  It's a good design in that you can use charm squares to make it.  The one on the bed also uses 5 inch charms squares.  That's it, no more 30's fabrics.  I sold the rest of what I had on Ebay and now can move on.  I do think these quilts will improve once I quilt them.  It will give them that vintage crinkly look that they need to be really 30's style.

You amaze me with all these quilt tops! How long have you been quilting? I totally love the yellow one! What is the pattern you used?

I have a ton of 30's fabrics too. Maybe I should try to sell them as well. I am trying to update my stash so maybe it is a good idea!
