I have so few finishes,
I'm excited to be able to share one!
This was actually a July finish,
but the weather prohibited me from taking photos out of doors.
This was a kit, but my daughter added the aqua to the mix.
Good choice! I love going fabric shopping with her.
I straight line quilted it according to the direction of the rectangles.
Let's talk labels. I think there are still some of you out there
that don't take the time to label your quilts.
After all the hard work,
no matter how simple and easy the pattern is to sew,
like this one,
it still deserves a nice label.
It doesn't have to be a major work of art
to compliment your quilt back
and document your efforts.
This one is simple, basic, and took about 15 minutes to throw together,
another 15 to stitch to the back.
I also stitch in the ditch around the borders on the inside
so it lays down nicely, providing a nice, finished look.
Do you get that nice, soft velvety feel to the backing from this picture?
I backed it with corduroy...on sale, 3 metres for $9.99!
How could I resist that price?
I love it. I'm going to use corduroy more.
I'm so glad I have Stephanie's book,
which happens to be on sale at Connecting Threads right now!
I'm glad I bought 3 metres of raspberry corduroy, too.
Yesterday, this quilt was delivered to a friend
who lost his wife to cancer one year ago this week.
It's been a tough week for him.
I hope it helps to bring him comfort and peace.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit today.
Look who else stopped by to say hello!
Life is good!
