Finishing up to get ready for the QAL

In an effort to clear the decks for the QAL I finished Raindrops by Judy Niemeyer.  Ended up enlarging just a bit so it is 90x100.  LOVE the pattern.  I was very intimidated by paper piecing and Judy Niemeyer, but if you just follow step by step, it was much easier than I thought.

Also, made a fast baby quilt today.  It is the Disappearing Nine Patch using the Missouri Star Quilt Company tutorial.  One layer cake plus 3 white 10" squares makes 5 nine patches or approx 58x70"

Now that I have two more tops completed, I really need to learn how to quilt them together  LOL.
