I have been working hard to finish the 5+ quilts I have started, figuring that having that many UFO's don't cuddle as well as their finished counterparts :)
In the last 2 weeks I have managed to finish 3.
One a simple 9 patch pattern with awesome bright happy colors that I gifted to my good friend since it matches her happy personality perfectly :) I have heard this quilt has become a good companion for her while she unwinds and reads a book after her little one has gone to bed.
Then I started on quilting out the navy blue and white block pattern that I actually started with Kate! Took me a while to finish it (kept getting distracted making all the fun quilt tops!), but finally it has graduated from UFO to finished project.
I love the simplicity of this quilt, yet provides color to accent a room if you wanted. It continues with my love of being a little scrappy so each color has a little depth. And the best part, 100% cotton batting to help you keep warm and cuddle up :)
Finally I finished a slanted diagonal pattern quilt. I will admit, this is one of my favorites I have completed in a while. This quilt uses one of my favorite blocks, the HST! And now thanks to the new way to making HST, it goes even quicker! (please see earlier post titled). I was hoping to finish this teal yellow beauty up so it could be used in our engagement photos, but my allergies had other thoughts that day.
All the quilts I worked on my wandering free motion quilting. I absolutely love quilting that way because it is like a constant puzzle, adds great detail to the quilt and frankly, is just a lot of fun to do.
All quilts are perfect for cuddling up on the couch watching tv or reading a good book. Or my pups would say are perfect for making into a soft bed to rest their heads.
