Friday Finish!

The past week was a busy one and I didn’t spend lots of time at the sewing machine. I spent several days visiting with my son who lives in the Central Valley.  Soooo hot there. I lived there years ago and acclimated to the heat back then.  Now?  Not so much. While I was there I made a trip to the local quilt shop in Turlock, CA — called “Cloth and Quilts”.  It was really well stocked and the people were so friendly. (But then, isn’t that always the case?  They are quilters, after all.) I was fairly disciplined and only picked up two pieces of yardage and three fat quarters.  Not too bad at all.

Even with being gone for a few days, I did manage to finish a baby quilt that I have been working on.  I posted about it earlier here. I am so pleased with the final result! The colors are adorable and overall it is a sweet little quilt that will, hopefully, make some new mama out there very happy. I did five inch squares on point with white sashing.  I also appliqued a heart to one of the squares on the front and then did a pieced backing with three more appliqued hearts.  Love these accents!

The print that I used for the backing was leftover from another project.  I can’t remember the name of it but I love the floral print.  They look like hydrangea blossoms to me but who knows??

I quilted it on my machine with a large, loose stipple.  It was a breeze to quilt up. Then bound it with a dark purple piece.

Just had some labels made and tucked one at the bottom edge.

A finish for this Friday – Yay!  The quilt is listed in my shop on Etsy waiting for the right person to come along and snap it up.

    LOVE the back of the quilt Bernie. Hope you got to taste some good wine in the central valley as well.

      Hi there! Thanks so much. I like trying to piece the backs of the quilts so both sides are fun to look at. No wine tasting. We had Julia with us and I am not really much of a wine person. Whiney at times but not a big wine drinker! 😉
