A finish, finally :)

I finished quilting the top of my mother in law's quilt on Wednesday. Yesterday I sat down to sew the binding on, and now... it is finished!!! I love how it turned out, it's so bright and fun. I have been working on this for close to a year, and I am glad it is done. :)


Here is my photography helper!
Another project I've been working on is a quilt using Amy Butler fabrics. Here is that starting to come together.Yesterday my friend and I went out to Fabric Depot and I found a nice backing fabric for this quilt, isn't it so cute?
I also found a fabric line called Neptune, fell in love and bought some charm packs. Oh boy!
I hope you all are having an awesome weekend too!

Your MIL's quilt is Stunning! I love the bold colors and the white sets them off so beautifully!

And your Amy Butler quilt is going to be gorgeous too! The colors are so springy and I love different blocks :)

What a darling quilt. I love the border fabric you used. It looks like your quilting turned out fabulous!
When I went to Portland last month, we went to that fabric depot store. Isn't it amazing! You are so lucky to have a store that big, so close to you.
I love the Neptune fabric. I've almost broken down and bought that myself. Love the colors!
Have a great day. Thanks for posting.

Looks like you got more done on the Stash Dash weekend than I did! Great job, both quilts are awesome. I love that Amy Butler fabric one. Now if I could just get enough nerve to actually make something with my Amy Butler fabrics! Thanks for sharing.

What a great quilt you finished for your MIL. She will be so pleased with it, it looks wonderful.
Your new quilt project looks great, the fabric colours are so much different from the previous project. Great!

Congrats on finishing your mil's quilt! What I'm really grooving on tho, is all that Amy Butler fabric and the quilt you've made with it - awesome. The colorway and patterns really appeal to me. :D

Wow, you are very productive with your quilting, I am impressed. Your latest finish is beautiful and you did a nice job quilting it. I won't machine quilt anything bigger than a baby quilt! :D

Wendy said...

Congratulations on an awesome finish! I machine quilt my own quilts but I have to admit I'm intimidated by my current project. The thread keeps breaking over and over...I haven't figure out what I'm doing wrong yet. Your stippling looks fantastic and what an amazing accomplishment!

Lennu said...

Wow, what a beautiful quilt it is! Congratulations!! And your new start looks so beautiful and bright, pretty colours!

It seems you had a great time in Disneyland, thanks for sharing the photos. When we were living in France, we went to Eurodisney in Paris and kids loved it :) Have a very happy week dear Heather!!
