Steaming along!

I am steaming along with my UFOs.  And the good thing is that it looks even better than it is, because most of them are nearly tops, so a border or two makes a finished top!  Why on earth didn't I finish these before?

Snails Trail is done.  The snails bit was done, and I just added a fun pirate border (snails and pirates go perfectly together!) and tick!  There are a couple of big mistakes on this, but I don't think they spoil the quilt -just give it individuality! 

Another finish is this scrappy log cabin.  A different arrangement of this perennial favourite. 

The Mariners Compass is layered top.  This took a little more work, but not much.  The centre was done and all the stars.  Lots of the flying geese were done, some were made from HSTs and some were made specially.  The corner stones were blocks left over from Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion.  Just the job! 

This black and white pinwheel has got two borders on it, both of which came from stash! 

And here are the lozenges appliquéd to a background.  Onward and upward!
