Why no blog posts lately? Because I've been finishing things, people! I finished six quilts in the past week. Six! One of them from start to finish! OK, so none were particularly large, but I'm happy and they are done. So today I will start by sharing two of them, because they are similar.
See? Same pattern and practically the same fabrics. As you recall, I was given lots of fabric when I made the 100 blessings quilt.
I even shared the quilt tops
that I was able to complete with all the extra. Now they are all quilted up and ready for donation.
The top one finished up at 33" x 41" and the bottom (blurry) one is 41" x 52".
I quilted them both the same, a curvy stitch along each seam line. I think it gives it nice stability, openness for softness of the fabric and its super easy and almost mistake -proof.
They each have the same backing and binding as well. This was a large length of cotton decorator fabric from my mom - it washed up nice and soft for a quilt backing - yay!
Linking with Crazy Mom Quilts
visiting from crazy mum quilts. This is amazing. finishing things is a fantastic thing to do.
You are industrious! I agree about quilting being more "open" for snuggling--it's softer and less board like (I ought to know--I just sewed myself a board!). I also think it mimics hand quilting better, too. Good for you for all these quilts!
Lovely finish! Six quilts? Did you ever sleep? :-)
These are simple and very cute! Love that backing fabric.
