Finishes always feel good, don't they? Sometimes I feel like I am adrift in a sea of projects and UFOs. So when a finish comes along I feel especially good.
I finished the binding on the Lil' Baskets quilt last night. YAY!!! This quilt is not huge (70" x 70"), but it seemed to take forever. :-)
Now it is ready to go on the back of the couch where the cats will sleep on it and we will get to use it occasionally.
I even like the reproduction back I selected. With all the colors in the baskets, it was hard to choose an appropriate back. I decided on a reproduction that complimented the borders.
This quilt is a nice compliment to the courthouse steps quilt I made a few years ago. Ignore the leaves.. with so many trees it is hard to get a photo without them!
Both will keep us and the kitties warm on cold evenings this winter.
I also started this little penny rug on Halloween... and finished it on Sunday. I have had this pattern for a few years. Glad I finally made it. It was quick and fun!
Have a great week!
Oh Gosh, this is lovely, and especially with the Courthouse Steps quilt. It looks so much bigger than 70", must be all that piecing!ReplyDelete
A great finish, it is. Those blocks take forever, so no wonder you took a long time to finish it.ReplyDelete
Those little baskets are super sweet and you picked a wonderful fabric to be the alternating block. It's hard to find at something that works with so many colors. It's a great finish. Both quilts work so well together. I like the courthouse steps as well. You used tons of fabrics in two fantastic scrap quilts.ReplyDelete
What a great finish! Love those baskets so much. It's a very cozy looking quilt.:)ReplyDelete
Beautiful finishes, congratulations! Those pieces of the baskets must be really small, same for the strips of the courthouse steps. I admire your patience.ReplyDelete
Whoa! Your little basket quilt is fabulous. I love the contrast of the bright baskets and light background with the dark checkerboard. And your pumpkin is adorable. That's a lot of inspiration for one post!ReplyDelete
Great finishes! Love the quilt and the wool pumpkin is so fun!ReplyDelete
What a result! That is gorgeous! Worth the wait. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
OMG I'm in love with everything in this post. That basket quilt is amazing. LOVE the pumpkinReplyDelete
