A Spring Quilt Top and NTT

Hey there, friends!  Welcome to Needle and Thread Thursday.  I've been moving right along on my spring quilt, all while still giving myself plenty of time outside in the sunshine.  The top is all finished now-

I have the back pieced from all the leftovers (and I can't wait for you to see it!), and today I'm planning to get it basted.  I'm leaving very early in the morning on Tuesday for Bloomington, IN- my final teaching trip this spring, and I may or may not get the quilting done before I go.  Our weekends are pretty busy, so I don't usually work on quilts then.

I'm planning to get next week's NTT post ready to go before I leave, so don't worry.  Even though I'll be out of town, the party will be on!  Now, let's check out some of my favorite projects from last week (there are lots!). This amazing bit of eye candy is from Gretchen's Little Corner-

All of these fantastic finishes are from Nancy at Grace and Peace Quilting-

Jan at The Colorful Fabriholic linked up this fun quilt-

This beauty is from Maggie at Making a Lather-

Jen From Handmade With Heart showed off these cute quilts-

And finally, this happy quilt is from Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl-

Okay friends!  I can't wait to see what you've been working on this week.  Show me what you've got!
